Pours decently for a malt liquor style lager. Nice head of white foam, and a clear dark golden body.

The aroma is very astringent, lots of corn and tobacco characteristics. Dry and powdery too.

Taste wise it is very rich in the tobacco flavor, and kind of leathery and buttery.

Crisp and lots of carbonation up front. Delves into a burning ethyl feel for the finish. It almost feels/tastes like somebody dumped a shot of shitty whiskey into a beer.

Picked up in Wyoming mostly for morbid curiosity. How good can it be? Got to see some bad countries on the Earth to appreciate how great most of North America and Europe are compared to most of Africa.

But I have had Super Brew 15 in my mouth so I know bad when I put it in my mouth.

Poured in a glass just to be fair and like most malt liquor it does a passable job at looking like a lager. Clear gold with a small momentary white colored head.

Smells fruity as in fusel alcohol from beer fermented hot and fast. Malty and toffee candy. It is a bit spicy and I got the smell nailed. This smells like spiced caramel apple. There is a strong apple butter scent to this. Might actually give this some credit except I know what Fusel Alcohol does for hangovers. But to be honest doesn't smell that bad.

Moment of truth the taste.

Starts of thin and boozy. Tastes a lot like apple cider. And that is about it, tastes like Vodka and apple juice.

Mouthfeel is thin and the carbonation boils off pretty quick.

Overall this is a beer meant for hardcore alcoholics and college dorm parties.

But you already knew what you were buying a bad beer when you purchased it.

6 OZ drank 18 OZ to clean out the drain.

Hmm... yes yes. This brewed beverage has a slight taste of nutmeg with hints of cedar, cinnamon, copper, petrol, and bolshevism.

I do believe that if I weren't completely deluded and asinine this might be a very decent & high ABV beverage.

Seriously, it doesn't taste bad considering its high alcohol content & it smells very strongly of alcohol--almost like rubbing alcohol. Even though it smells very strongly of alcohol it doesn't taste bad-- actually, there is very little taste, you can feel the carbonation and cold liquid but the taste is pretty much absent. There is a faint aftertaste of alcohol and hops.

BTW this website is crawling with narcissistic morons. I've read dozens of reviews ( I like to try all kinds of micro brewery beers and like to know their general ratings beforehand) and on every review you find very pretentious and illogical morons, so I just wanted to say: get a grip on reality you nutmeg, cinnamon, black olive tasting douchebags.

Subjective tastes:
Wife: tastes like bourbon...hates!
Me: Tastes like bourbon...loves!

My wife says this beer taste like bourbon...and says she hates it.
I say it taste likes bourbon...and I say I love it!
Draw your own conclusions from this highly "scientific" taste test.
Cheers!

Reviewed from notes.

A. Deep yet clear golden yellow, no head nor lacing at all, but there are fair amounts of effervescent rising bubbles.

S. Smells very much like cheap Manischewitz wine mixed with kerosene, some diesel, and a hearty side of lawnmower engine oil/gasoline combination. Warning flags and klaxon alarms are going off in my mind.

T. Gargh!! Almost pure fusel alcohols! My eyebrows have spontaneously dissolved! And I think a part of my brain has dribbled out of my ear canal as well! Is this really even beer?

M. Texturally, it even resembles the thin and strident feel of solvents. Only carbonated. Carbonated Solvents. Hey, that sounds like a good name for a band, hmm.

Seriously, this is the very textbook definition STANDARD of fusel fumigation madness. Maybe there's a pinch of white grapes in the finish after the gasoline / kerosene explosion, but I'm having a hard time finding it while being preoccupied with extinguishing my chest hair.

Possibly this "brew" could also be utilized as paint thinner or to help remove those stubborn concrete driveway oil stains.

For a beer beer aficionado it's cheap swill. For a couch potato redneck it's and acquired taste the improves with time and the next beer. By the time you finish it, you care little for the can design, smell or taste. The mouth-feel can only be described as numb. It may even embolden you to register to a random beer review website to sing it's feint praise before staggering out in search of another can before the buzz wears off and you can again taste and smell again.
The overall rating includes the sack-of-hammers effect of the %10.5 ABV

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Appearance - Pours a bright golden color with a half inch head that dissipates somewhat quickly. The foam is literally crackling, it seems very carbonated.

Smell - Pretty sweet with a wine-like scent to it.. maybe some lemon zest. Malts and a sour alcohol aroma as well.

Taste - Oh my GOD.... there is literally no other flavors present to cover up the overbearing alcohol taste. It's like you're drinking gasoline. This taste very similar to a whiskey ale.

Mouthfeel - Light body with high carbonation.

Overall - After a few sips I'm literally gagging.. I'm dumping this tallboy down the drain.

While it's one of the most bitter flavors I've ever had from a tallboy, CAMO Black Ice will really get you the most bang for your buck. This stuff carries a serious bite. The initial taste, although strong, is actually not that horrible. It WILL, however, give your face an oogly-moogly expression if you're not accustomed to drinking it. The nice thing about it is how quickly it can get you on the level. For the average person a single tallboy will get you a healthy buzz and anything beyond 2 is guaranteed tipsy-status. If you can get past the aftertaste this stuff makes a long day at work seem like less of a big deal at the end of the day.

Can dated "3330", brewed by "Five Star Brewing Co, Inc" in Lacrosse, WI and Latrobe PA. Wasn't Five Star going to be the new name of Viking before they went with Valkyrie? Don't blame them for the name change, I wouldn't want to be mistaken for being responsible for brewing this garbage either...

Into a large mug it does indeed pour urine gold with a rapidly fading white cap of fizzling bubbles. Rapid visible carbonation, crystal clear, looks like a sparkling cider.

Smells like a musty dishrag soaked with spoiled grape juice. Fusel alcohol fumes.
Starting to think this was a very bad idea.

Harshly astringent and overcarbonated. It tastes like alcohol and white grape juice that has started to turn. Sharp and lip-curling foul taste of fusel alcohol and sickly sweet white grape juice (likely from wine yeast). Just bad, real bad. One of the worse malt liquors on the market, pretty much the bottom of the barrel for a $1.49 can.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

A - pours a orange yellow animal urine with a head that dissipates rapidly
s - smells like fermented corn syrup
t - it tastes bad, sweet and metalic, like bad beer mixed with a chemical.
m - you must focus your mind and overcome your natural response to spit it out, once you master that you then must attempt to swallow it.
o - This single 22oz can of beer will probably get you wasted and you will have a headache for a couple of days. Worse is that you wont feel right for a while, its like the impurities remain inside your body and reek havoc on your system. I hate this stuff, I sometimes buy it for people as a joke.
