UPDATED: JUN 17, 2010 Acworth, Ga - Chevron store - 24 oz, black macho-looking can. Medium golden pour, fluffy white head. Aroma actually has some stale yeasty notes similar to a cheap Belgian Ale. Flavor is very boozy and chemically with hints of stale, soggy kid’s cereal. Harsh mouthfeel, burns as it goes down, . wxman (1848) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Pours a clear bright golden with a respectable white head. Nose is bubble gum. Sugary sweetness dominates the flavor; some taste of pale malt and alcohol. No hop bitterness whatsoever. Alcohol warmth after the swallow. Not as offensive as one would expect of a high gravity budget ML, but the over the top sweetness is what’s most off putting. pkbites (987) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Pours a darker yellow with a rich white head. Looks like a hearty lager. Smells pretty bad, rotting corn, fuel oil, and marshmallows. Thick, awful mouth feel. Terrible flavor, like gasoline. Higher carbonation than most malt liquors, but one could never chug this. Not for quenching thirst, that’s for sure. Offensive after taste, like really bad cough syrup. Not as sweet as many high octane brews. That makes this even harder. Quite a bit of burn going down. I’m an experienced drinker and even I got a severe headache from this shit. Blech. Paid $2.99 for four 16 ouncers in West Allis, Wisconsin. Shag (3045) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2010
This poured a piss yellow color, no shock there! This smells like fail, rotting corn and urine. The flavor is sweet corn, alcohol, and again fail. Oh man this is horrid! The aftertaste is full of sweet creamed corn and rubbing alcohol. I can stomach some malt liquors but this is one of the worst Ive ever had. I just burped and the burp offended me. This f-n sucks it! ronaldtheriot (1995) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - APR 26, 2010
Stack High Gravity Smooth Lager has a surprisingly thick, white head and relatively good amount of carbonation. The appearance is a slightly cloudy orange-gold color. Aroma is sharp and stinging, which a fruity and overwhelming alcohol smell. The taste is very harsh and apple predominates. Actually, Stack tastes more like wine than beer. Certainly, this beer is not bland, but I’m not sure "good" makes its way into the discussion. Mouth-feel is heavy and wet. This drink has little to no lacing.

All right, so it ain’t Orval Trappist. But at 12% abv, it gets the proverbial "JOB" done. So pick up a can or two posthaste and down’em now! THE STACK IS AN EXCEPTIONAL ALCOHOL DELIVERY SYSTEM -- I mean, think about it, neighbor -- 24 ounces @12%abv -- that’s the equivalent of 4.8 12 oz. cans/bottles of 5% abv brew....
TWO OF THESE IN SHORT SUCCESSION AND YOUR IN BUSINESS, PAL! JoeMcPhee (9554) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2010
Fizzy deep orange-gold pour. The nose is just awful. Sweet nail polish and honey with a rancid milk backnote. Thick, cloying, chewy palate with some corn syrup for added body. Gak! scooterbub (1067) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 3, 2010
24 ounce can. Pours a golden color with a decent, foamy, white head. For a malt liquor it looks pretty nice. Taste is of corn, malt, sugar, grain, some fruit and some alcohol. Similar aroma. Has a nice, smooth body. Easy to drink when it is cold. For the price, style and alcohol content, it is not that bad of a beer. ketchepillar (1199) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAR 19, 2010
All sorts of cherry cough drop. Rotting things. Sometimes it’s like a sweet old underattenuated belgian strong ale. Aroma is super pungent. tgncc (3145) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2010
The nose is banana, rubbing alcohol, corn. The appearance is pale yellow, white head. The flavor is banana, rubbing alcohol, corn, malts, sugar. The finish is a fusdel alcohol warming, mild nobel hops. The mouthfeel is smooth, the body medium to medium/thick. Not a good beer by any means, but not bad for what it is.
