Picked up at a Consumer Beverage in Lockport. I new the reviews were bad for the beer but I figured a)it can't be that bad b)it is worth a try. Now for the review.
A-A deep ruby maybe it was actually brown. The carbonation was about as existent as an honest man on Capital Hill. It was so thick I'm thinking of keeping a few bottles in my car in case I develop an oil leak.
S-I'll admit I like the smell of my own farts and cow manure. This however was worse than those. It was nothing but alcohol, soy sauce. My roommate wanted to try it, I warned him it was awful, took one whiff, did that "I'm gonna vomit all over this granite counter top" and said, "I'm not trying that"
T-Words can not describe the taste. Soy sauce infused with alcohol. They say the beer was aged in bourbon barrels, it is more likely that it was aged in barrels that once contained 13 month old milk. After you stomached your first sip and decided to take a 10 minute break before going back, the taste still lingers.
M-Thick. Don't have a great grasp on mouthfeel as you wanted to get that stuff out of you as quick as possible.
O-I think the best way to recreate this beer is to buy a bottle of soy sauce, add homemade grain alcohol and mix throughly. As the Grinch song goes, given the choice between this and a seasick crocodile, I'll take the seasick crocodile. I give credit for helping to start the extreme beer movement but if you think about the Puritans founded New England and killed gays, non believers, witches and Indians and New England turn out sorta all right.

Shared this with BPK59 at his birthday party. A fun tick. This was 1995 vintage. Of course Ben broke the cork off and in to the bottle...hah!
A - Poured in to a small snifter a motor oil thick dark dark brown nearly black hue with some really incredible legs.
S - Aromas of sweeter malts, salty brine, soy sauce.
T - Taste is even worse than the nose. Loads of sticky sweet malts, salty sweet soy sauce. Ugh
M - Mouthfeel is heavy and syrupy
O - Overall this was a soy bomb. I guess this beer truly is russian roulette, as some bottles are incredible and others are just plain drain pour. Still, glad I got to try it!
