Let's talk malt liquor. Some are repulsed by it, and that's probably understandable, but some of us have a preference for it, I for one grew up drinking it as a broke teenage scumbag and will always have a sense of comfort sipping on a nice 40 of this gutter swill. It's conveniently large, tastes no worse than any cheap beer really such as a bud or a miller, and gets you drunker faster for those of us who like a good buzz but prefer casually sipping beer to taking shots or something

>> No.10508443

it's fine if you drink it fast, good drunk level, cheap, tastes ok if cold enough
if you buy plastic 40s you should be drug out behind the shed and shot

>> No.10508449

mmm...been going at it hard with the 12 packs. maybe I should go back to my roots. 40 oz of Mickeys or Miller was my usual go to. 2 of those usually did the trick

I have spent $100+ on bottles of liquor.

I mostly drink limited release beer and wine on the weekends.

And I still pound a 40 of Cobra every so often. It's god damn delicious fuck you.

>> No.10508556

40s are gross, because there's no real way to consume it in a reasonable amount of time without it getting warm. Now 12-pack cans of Old English or Colt 45 on the other hand...

Doesn't sound like a good time at all. Steel Reserve is the choice of boozaholics that beats out even the most other ridiculous options including the Natty Daddy.

>> No.10508739

Metal and maple syrup, it's foul

>> No.10508828

Steel Reserve is my drink of choice because at my store, it's the cheapest "high gravity" option, I would switch to St. Ides just for the glass bottle, but Steel is cheaper.

That being said, I'm known as the most "alchy" one for this preference, my friends will usually go with Colt, Old E, or Mickeys, but I go with the Steel cause I'm a dirty drunk to the core, I drink at least two a night.

Now, that also being said, I notice that when I open it the bottle neck smells like anus sometimes. I can't figure out why but I always take a sip and get a whiff of anus.

>> No.10508894

I've only had Olde English and Colt. OE is alright while Colt is basically undrinkable.

Everyone drinks Little Fat Lamb now days, which is probably a shitty version of malt liquor.
A few years ago cask wine (or a goon sack as it's known) was the go to, although the kids these days can't handle it and they've fallen out of fashion. 34 standard drinks for $12 is pretty fuckin good.

Why do americans refer to strong beer as malt liquor?

Not even trying to do an OBSESSED post, it's just confusing to me as a Canadian since up here, malt liquor refers to deflavored beer that is then re-flavored (and sometimes fortified) with flavorful additives to make fake rum, fake vodka, and drinks like 4Loko or Bootleggers that are distinctly un-beer-like.

Meanwhile, stuff like Colt 45 and Labatt 10.1 and such are simply referred to as Strong Beer. Even American brands like Colt 45 that have to have different labelling for the Canadian market have "Strong Beer" printed on them instead of "Malt Liquor".

What do americans call things like Bootleggers and 4Loko if "Malt Liquor" is already taken?

Anyway, for me it is the Labatt Bleue Dry 10.1, the beer for me when I intend on being pathetic

>> No.10510909

tax purposes

>> No.10510918

Depends on the laws of the state in question. In many states the label "malt liquor" might apply if there is something beyond barley added to the wort. In other states it has to do with the alcohol %. US alcohol laws are a patchwork of crazy.

DKML is a pretty good upgrade to your standard malt liquor, but it has the unfortunate side effect of making you smell like corn for the next 24 hours.

Two 40s will last a night for me usually, I can maybe stretch a pint of vodka that long if I make mixed drinks, depending on the 40s I get/where I get them from, the vodka is more expensive or just about the same price. One store I know sells Steel Reserve for like 2.5 dollars, another one I know is like a buck twenty

As others have said it's when a beer has other derivatives to increase the ABV other than just malt. There are some craft beers that are labeled as malt liquor. Some of the crazy Dogfish Head beers and BrewDog beers have that label.

4Loko is also called a malt liquor here.

where I live the 40s are indeed cheaper. a litre of labatt 10% for 5 dollars or a litre of 40% vodka for 25 or 30 dollars. it's not a huge difference but strong beer is objectively more cost effective
