High Gravity is even better than Special Brew!! The aroma is delightful, the taste smooth, and the color amber-perfect. Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - AUG 16, 2003
This is one of the worst beers I have ever tasted. It seemed to make the higher gravity, they needed to concentrate every bad flavor of a regular macro into this 'beer'. One of the few beers I just couldn't finish no matter how hard I tried. Drain pour. HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 15, 2003
I paid a whopping 99 cents for a 24oz can of this bad boy. I poured relatively hard and I still could not produce any head. The nose is negligible. The palate, well lets just say how can this beer be so light for its gravity. The palate is bland as can be with the only flavor being simply sugar. Avoid! dwyerpg (6180) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 13, 2003
This beer foamed up so much on pouring it made keg beer look foamless, and unfortunately, I had to drink some of it to prevent spillage. While it has the painful piss color, it actually smells better than some other bottom-dwelling brews. In any case, this is a terrible and fantastic beer. It has a terrible taste and aftertaste, but it produces fantastic results if your goal is to get drunk, and cheap. Even my father, with his iron stomach, didn't finish the whole beer, making it quite unfortunate that we still have 10 left. jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2003
Twice the ingredients? Man o' man what are the ingredients? Must be steel becuase it smells very metallic and tastes like metal that has been rubbed down with charcoal. The high alcohol content is in no way masked but may help in anesthestizing your taste buds. Proceed with caution.

I really love this beer, for a malt it has good taste a great color and will absolutely knock you flat if you drink too much. Usually cheap at 1.25 in CA for a 22oz can, readily available. You have to be certain to drink it while cold, because when it gets warm it does become undrinkable!
The best part is the amount of alchohol, it is palatable as soon as you open the can and sip, try freezing this beer but do not go too long or ALL the alch will float to the top (theres that much in there! Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2003
24 oz. can-$.99. Yellow color, malt and alcohol nose. Even ice cold all I can taste is alcohol. Brown bag was free. lipskin (38) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2003
Oh yeah!! This is the one to get when you're digging in the couch for change! It does the trick for under a buck. drewcifer85710 (158) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2003
Ahh, 211. This is truly bad, but this is one of those brews that doesn't exist to be good; it exists to mess you up for CHEAP. This one gets obligatory low marks, but this stuff does exactly what it's supposed to, and well. cjporosk (1) - USA - JUN 9, 2003 does not count
I'm amazed that this beer is rated so low. I am a veteran beer drinker and consider this beer a tasty rare find in the beer world. It is advertised as a Lager, not a malt liquor. In any case, it has a nice taste, is cheap, and has a good kick. What more could you want?? If you want something different (or marginally better) go ahead and spend three or four times your money. This is a beer that resembles many of the finest beers in Eastern block Europe as well... Drink it with an open mind and no preconceptions if you can and enjoy....
