Schlitz Bull Ice is produced by Pabst Brewing Co., and is the rebranded Bull Ice, which was produced by Stroh Brewery prior to Pabst acquiring the Schlitz brands. Originally labeled as high gravity ice brewed malt liquor, Schlitz Bull Ice weighs in at 8.2% ABV. It's an extremely smooth HG, possibly the best of its class. It's not as classic as St. Ides nor as widely distributed as Steel Reserve 211, but it tastes better than both. 9/10 swills for being the best high gravity 40 in North America.
This just recently became available to me at this one spanish mart. Cracked my first one a few nights ago, tasted pretty good to me. Definitely better than St Ides HG, but not as good as silver 211, but it is close though. It has the alcohol content of St Ides, but has the fullness off 211. The only thing I didn't like was that it barely hissed when I cracked it. I've had it a few times since and the same thing happened each time, but it still tastes alright to me. I think it'd be fun to work my way up the Schlitz ladder one night, start with some blue bull, then some red bull, and then finish the night with a Schlitz Bull Ice HG.
the other day i was in a ghetto ass part of vegas and pulled ina 711 and to my surprise i saw the bull ice, i had never swilled the shit..so i grabbed two tall cans of it and went at it fuckin shit is putrid, the worst godawfull nigg piss i have ever had the displeasure of drink'in..shit is like gasoline goin down and fucks your stomach up big time..never again gave me a good buzz though, but wasnt worth the torture
I've seen this stuff(schlitz bull) around in various forms over the years, this is the first for bull ice malt liqour. This stuff is at 8.2%, I have thought the 211 was the highest % in this town, just never paid close attention. It isn't too bad tasting either, but does NOT have the full-bodied malt flavor of the 211. Kind of a watery tasting malt, hard to believe it tops 211 in the % because of that. It has a black/silver label and trademark bull with the words Bull Ice in white with a blue outline.
Oh my god. I just "finished" my Bull Ice HG and I wish I hadn't. My 40 was super frosty after 4 hours in the freezer. Drank in about 45 minutes. It cracked nicely, and though it tasted shitty it was surprisingly easy going down. It was consistent, got a nice buzz going, the upper swill was relatively harmless... Then as I was killing the 40 the VERY last swill was the most godawful thing I have ever tasted and no lie I ran to my bathroom and harfed up my whole 40 as well as the fajitas I ate immediately beforehand. Now I am hungry and upset. I was one swill from giving this 40 a highly favorable review. To be fair, this 40 did have many redeeming qualities, so I will give it a 6 out of 10, but I will most likely never drink it again.
This is a pain in the ass to find. when i first tasted it, it seemed to have a hint of soy sauce flavor to it.. it was weird.. but i must say this is probably the best 40 i have ever tossed back... the buzz was excellant, the lablel iz dope! the swill didnt bother me at all... it waz really smooth...it would definatly be my choice of 40'z if it waz closer to my house.. 10 outta 10 swillz!!!!!!!
I really thought this would taste bad, for whatever reason i imagined it tasting like Camo, which is horrible. It actually was a pretty smooth malt At 8.2% it had a great buzz factor The swill wasn't too bad because i usually drink fast, so the swill was still pretty cold. I will def drink this again 7 out of 10
Tough to find and it doesn't have much flavor (tasted like a stronger Red Bull actually), but it might be my new "HG" of choice...........it goes down easy! Great looking label too! Unfortunately, I don't think it really gets you as messed up as Camo or some of the Canadian "extra-forte" brews do, so I can only give it an 8/10.
After wanting one for awhile I finally got one from a trade with Orentha so special thanx to him. At 8.2% I had to put this stuff head to head with St.Ides since there the same %. So lets start off saying the crack of the bottle sent a decent hiss but this hiss wouldnt be nowhere as good as I thought taste wise. From the first swill, to the middle swill, to the last swill of the bottle this stuff everytime sent a pretty typical HG aftertaste that sent me wishing for a Private Stock at any time through this 40 to offset the taste but being a true 40 drinker I didnt give up and finished it off. Taste wise compaired to most HG 40's I say would be under Steel Reserve 211 and inbetween St.Ides. Buzz factor this stuff did its job at 8.2% cause it had me focusing to get this review up and basically it was pretty close to an St.Ides buzz. In the end this stuff does the job at 8.2% no doubt, taste wise it is pretty typical HG but if you wanna get pretty buzzed or drunk and you feel like having a 40 that taste somewhat better then ides but not as good as Steel 211 then you choose Schlitz Bull Ice HG. I give this 40, 7 out of 10 cause it does the job at 8.2%, taste aint the worst and overaul its got the Bull on the front like the other schlitz bull malt liquor lineup and after you drink the other bulls you cant resist but taste the Bull Ice HG.
BLEH!! ASSSSSSSSSSS. st ides is like a fine wine compared to this. is it just me that thinks this? first time (and last im sure) that ive had this.
lookin 4 a 40
This malt tastes the best in the high gravity league. It's cheap, has the best label, it's smooth and quickly gets the job done. It has a higher % than 211 but flows down easier. (I have fine memories of this brew. Back when I was 15 my mom wouldnt let me go on a trip with my buddies down to the keys for the weekend, so I got tanked off this stuff and right in front of her..threw her purse across the room...change,lipstick and money went flying everywhere.)
Just had this for the first time last night, and I was impressed beyond belief! For one of the highest alky contents, it is really smooth and tastes not horribly bad at all. This may have been due to the 6+ shots of vodka beforehand, but it didn't matter then. Not only did it taste good, but got me blitzed and led to much hijinks, including cops, threesomes, and gashed open shins. 9 out of 10 swills, and my new 40 of choice.
Thanx to AK40seven for the hook up on this bitch! This shit is pretty good, wish I could score it around here. It definately got me lifted, but considering its the same % as St. Ides, its just more evidence to prove that St. Ides puts embalming fluid in their brews; I'm nowhere really near feeling an Ides buzz. Tastes a bit heavy (as evidenced by its dark color) like Steel Reserve. This is an all-around good 40. I respect it even more than I like it, which is quite alot. this is 8 of 10, wish i could get it by me, this is a really full bodied brew, the taste is truly preimum. Buzz: B, Taste: B+
I'd have to say I was pretty happy with the new Bull Ice which is now High Gravity and ranks in at 8.2% up there with St. Ide's and M-X. I thought it tasted 10 times better than the old shit it was also pretty smooth. The label it 10 times better than the old one too... I'd give Bull Ice High Gravity 7 of 10 Swills...
thanks to ak40seven for shipping this bitch to me. it was sitting in my fridge for about 2 months before i got to sample it so i was a little scared that it was gonna taste like shit. but to my surprise it tasted pretty damn good...kinda like a watered down st. ides hg....which is a good thing, cuz when it comes to high gravity 40s for me nowadays i have a hard time drinking them. the label looks bad ass and the buzz factor is pretty good...got me pretty drunk...if we had this bitch over here, i would drink the fuck out of it...its officially my new favorite high gravity 40....9.5 swills out of 10
I despise this drink. Had it 3 times out of a 40, all 3 times were misery. A sharp, overbearing taste. A long lasting, shitty aftertaste. Harsh buzz, leaves me with cotton mouth in the night, and a terrible hangover. I will never drink one of these again. 2 outta 10 swills just because the label is cool as hell.
I can honestly say that this is one of the best tasting high gravity 40's I've ever tasted. My new 40 drinking habit is to let it sit the the freezer for about an hour. This made the bull ice nice and cold and very drinkable. The first sip was good. A real combination of "Ice" and "High Gravity". I could taste elements of both. Good all the way down, very smooth. The swill got harsh, but was still drinkable with no problem. Very good for a malt, and outstanding for a high gravity malt.
