look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

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.

Molson XXX brewed by Molson Coors Canada. This brew has an Abv of 7.3 . Now for being a higher abv it is not as dark as most brew with higher abvs. This brew pours out a dark amber color with a small white head. The smell, right off the bat, is sweet. It smells like malt liquor and it also has that look. The taste is bold, sweet, and refreshing. This brew has a different aftertaste but it is not bad. This beer goes down smooth, but you can tell the 7.3 abv. There is nothing bad about this brew. This beer must be cold to drink. Overall, I'm giving this brew a 3.25 out of 5.
