I just picked up two cand of Anheuser-Busch "Hurricane High Gravity" beer
which states on the can 8.1% alcohol.  Anyone tried this?   Lots of alcohol
and it was only .99 a 24 oz can.

   You know, I've toured one of the A-B pilot plants, and
thought to myself they could make a kick-ass barleywine
if they tried.  Apparently, I was wrong:

E.g., "Huge flavors in a really bad way...rotten fruit and
garbage, and well, rotten human flesh. Old cantalope. Very
very very very gross in all ways."

Re: Hurricane beer


well okay then, I guess I'll try it and report back LOL...   I'll get a
little buzz going first off the three Miller Lites I have in the frig, then
I'll tackle this big bad boy, and the 8.1% alcohol might just make me not
care about the flavor

Good luck to you but....with me, it's always about the flavour, never the
alcohol.

Best regards,

I think you're in the wrong place for that attitude...

Joel, you're assuming they tried...  It's possible they just
threw it together to get more shelf space, not really caring
about what it tasted like.  Maybe a future revision will
see them REALLY trying...

Did the 99 cents for a 24-ounce can tip you off, maybe?

Besides, Jole, everyone knows barleywines aren't lagers, they're
ales. Maybe A-B will shoot for a Typhoon Doppelbock, though.

If the Hurricane does hit, it'll undoubtedly do some damage.  Somewhere
at least vaguely near you, there will probably be some poor animal that
died during the storm and would be rotting away in a ditch somewhere, its
flesh rotting away into some fermented swath of sewage, stale rainwater,
and disease.

Drink that first, then go for the malt liquor.

Well that was a disturbing read. My 18 year old buddy cat snuck out of the
house on July 5th and I haven't seen her since. :^(((
