When I saw the XXX in the convenience mart, it was the only stand-out on a shelf of boring pouring budweisers, labatts, millers and coors. I was looking for something with more substance and the 7.25 ABV suggested to me that there might be a chance. While I wasn't entirely disappointed with this beer, and I would probably again choose it over Molson's Export, Gold or Ice, it is a large brewing company brewing a beer that lacks real distinction, interest or style. It was decent in the mouth, decent going down, but if you are looking at characteristic that you might expect in a higher ABV beer...it isn't here. I rate the appearance as the only thing straying from average as it is a deeper golden color, and promised what the taste did not quite deliver.

A: snow white, fizzy foam forms on the pour, dies out to a thin, perimeter scum... sun-shiny amber liquid, crystal clear... occasional thin streak of lace
S: vaguely similar aromatics to a dry, spicy Belgian strong pale like Delirium... bit of that lightly-toasty, popcorny, curiously buttery pils malt note that some of those abbey blond knockoffs have... a bit pissy on the edges
T: oooh... hmmm... might have let this sit a couple minutes too long before popping the seal... dank, blanket spiciness with a low hum of rubbing alcohol to fill it out... there's a dry, powdery sort of quality to the malt, drop of brittle sweetness... strong aftertaste of dirty nickels and paperclips... spectre of dry apple juice late... the marginal deficit in malt sweetness matched with the metallic nuance and a bland, mildly clove-like phenol lingering in the finish groups this more with those purposefully-potent Belgian pales... dirty and metallic overall
M: relatively dry with a light-medium flow on the entry, rounds up a bit on the follow through... this really oughta be drunk quite cold...
O: well... not my favorite malt liquor... bit of a European approach to its constitution that works to a disadvantage here... it might be alright if the metal element was toned down - there's obviously something tasty hiding below - has to get through unobstructed

If you're acting as a beer "snob", it's not good, but if you're *trying* to mangle yourself (because it clocks in at 7.3%), you could do a lot worse. It doesn't taste bad at all, but it's nothing to write home about. It's clearly made for people who are trying to mangle themselves, so for the style/purpose, I'll call it okay/goodish.
