Those giant 64 ounce bottles bring back fond childhood memories for me. It was an accomplishment to finish one in less than an hour ... and I was all of 115 lbs back then! The 16 ouncers
( Pounders in MA speak) had little puzzles inside the cap that were fun to figure out as you got completely annihilated! Little pictures: screw + 'ed = screwed ... stuff like that. I know ... bad example, but I can't remember one of them!
One ol' timer described the flavor to me very well: SKUNK PISS.
That guy must have been talking about Lone Star beer. I have been to Texas many times.wlape3 wrote:I worked with a guy from Texas who used to say: "Shiner Bock is so bad you get a hangover before you even finish the beer..."
However, I respectfully disagree. Shiner Bock is not a bad beer in Texas or elsewhere.

Millworker wrote:I just brewed a Barleywine ale, weighs in at about 11%ABV. Nice warm beer for the cold months. Commerially, I think Victory brews some of the more kick you in the ass beers out there. Their Old Horizontal (Old Ho'), Golden Monkey, Storm King Stout, and V-12 all weigh in at or above 10% ABV and will keep you lit during during these short winter days.
Is that a homebrew recipe for Delirium Tremens or the Belgian original? Love the pink elephants on their bottles!
If you want to try a really kick-ass brew that tastes good to boot try some He-brew Jewbulation. It's 13% and tastes wonderful. Also try some Weyerbacher brews. They are uncommonly smooth and tasty considering their strength.
