Hurricane beer


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:

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

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.

"Crystal" sings of arms, the man, and Usenet news:TiOKe.4287$ snipped-for-privacy@news01.roc.ny:
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.
