The extended title that drops down two lines is a metaphor for true excess of this burger.

This has been covered elsewhere, but Eick sent me some coupons for free burgers and I figured my colon could take the abuse. I also picked up a large Coke and medium fries to accompany the gargantuan Angus burger. On a side note, I had a test the next day so I wanted to see how well McDonald’s acted as a study aid.

Needless to say I felt like I was underwater after eating this thing. You could cut this burger in half and feed two people, which makes it an even value with the rest of their burgers.

What strikes me is that this burger is every bit as excessive as KFC’s Double Down. It is a hulking mass of cholesterol and sodium, and no, it didn’t help me study at all. Let’s dissect it, shall we?

BEEF – Like a meatloaf hit with a frying pan. The thing is humongous, gray and terrifying. The flavor was fine, but it was lost in the sauce. I’ll get to that later.

BUNS – similarly giant, I liken the experience to eating half a loaf of bread. But then again, that’s the point of this burger.

BACON – hard and not crunchy whatsoever. This is a variable that can change from restaurant to restaurant depending on who is manning the microwave oven thing they use. I don’t like it, but me and bacon haven’t been on speaking terms lately.

“CHIPOTLE” SAUCE – Let’s make one thing abundantly clear: this is not chipotle sauce. It has a subtle spicy flavor, but this is just BBQ sauce slathered onto a burger. If it is chipotle sauce, then my name is Jean-Claude Van Damme and the greatest film ever conceived and filmed is Time Cop.

ONIONS – What’s the point of having onions on this burger? Onions on this burger is like having two halftime shows at the Super Bowl. There’s no room.

This burger is a giant mess, but it’s a decent ploy by McDonald’s. They figure if you’re in line at McDonald’s, you might as well go for broke, no matter the consequences.

    I tried this burger last week and couldn’t finish it… I was filling up quickly, but the main reason for stopping was simply being sick of the flavor. That is the last time I’ll be getting it, and it sounds like you’re in the same boat.

    I didn’t like it either, it had a funky flavor that just didn’t go with “burger”.

    Umm.. I’m a very small eleven year old that is not fat at all and I finished a WHOLE burger and large fries and a medium iced tea in just probably 10-15 min but it was so messy it looked as if I just murdered someone and they had BBQ sauce instead of blood. Sorry for the run on sentence . Also I think French fries go good with the sauce and/or burger
