dogfish head malt liquor

So, I think my boyfriend bought this as a joke. It cost $7 for a 40 oz (what other size would it be, right?) and actually comes with it's own labeled paper bag for easy coverage/carry. It's been sitting in my fridge for a week and we are too scared to drink it.

have any of you tried it? For $7 it has to taste better than Steel Reserve, right?

  1. Why didn't you just buy Country Club?

    I'm a bartender, sometimes beer snob, and always a malt liquor afficionado. Whether paying much cash for nice beer or hanging with a forty of Old E I do it all and enjoy it, too. Country Club, I think, is the best bang for your buck. Some reviews say it tastes horrible, but I think that's the power of suggestion as the price is quite low.

    Now, Steel Reserve on the other hand, is awful. I'll never put that in my body again.

    But I've never had this Dogfish Head Malt Liquor. I'd like to, where do you purchase such a thing?

    Seven bucks for a forty is too much unless it's amazing.

    1. I haven't had it, but anything by Dogfish Head is great. It's high in my top 5 US breweries. Try it and let us know.

      1. Dogfish is one of the best breweries in the US. I've never seen the 40 but I'd grab it in a heartbeat if I did, camp or not.

        1. I just looked it up online and it's a fancy forty! Wow!

          1. don't be afraid...taste and report!
