    Strongest beer you've drank?

    what is the strongest beer you've drank? I don't think I've ever got higher than 9-10% ABV.

    btw, how strong is malt liquor? we used to drink that in college and listen to the first Korn album, ghetto.

    I've had Sam Adams Utopias but would it be considered beer at that level?
    Malt beverage I guess, delicious for sure.

    I was going to say the same at 29%. It's classified as a beer, and it's good ****!

    I've had a few of these now (it's just down the road from me).

    17.3%

    It hides the alcohol well for the percentage. Lots of fun complex flavors. Very "thick" though, so you take your time and savor it. Previously, I was really liking the Termination Dust, made by their competitor, but TD falls to the Devil. I'm not sure it's the "highest" alcohol beer I've had, as I've had a lot of beer , but it's definitely the best high alcohol beer I've had.

    I wouldn't recommend drinking one of those big bottles though, a pint is plenty.

    A few years ago my local bottle shop got a case of Tactical Nuclear Penguin (32%) and Sink the Bismarck (41%).

    Four of us split a bottle of TNP. It was an imperial stout that came off like in your face rauch beer (think barrel aged with peat, campfire smoke, molasses, caramel, strong alcohol taste), pretty much undrinkable, and only bearable with a really strong cheese. I was done with it half way through my taster glass.

    I was able to try Utopias as well. Tasted way better but not sure I'd call it beer either. Just a few sips and I was feeling all warm!

    Other than Utopias (I still have some left in fact), I would say Sucre by the Bruery at 16.9%.

    EKU 28 was the strongest, as far as I know. I didn't much care for it, but it did pack a kick.

    I purchased a Bottle of TNP a long ways back and Brew Dog shipped it internationally to my door with the label of "yeast samples" to bypass customs... lol

    I happened to love it, but I only had 2oz as I shared with with some good friends.

    My buddy bought a Bismark, that stuff was hard to drink.

    My favorite High ABV Beer I have had is Black Tuesday from the Bruery, 19%.

    I tried Delerium Tremens a few times. The name is accurate, it feels like there must be more than just alcohol in there, maybe absinthe :P

    But the alcohol content is pretty modest 9% compared to some of the mentions above.

    Sam Adams Triple Bock. It's 18% and tastes like soy sauce. I do not recommend it.

    What was that stuff called "EKU 28 KULMINATOR URTYP HELL"? Spaten Optimator used to be pretty strong, does not even compare to the stuff chains like even Yardhouse are pouring now.

    Strongest I've had would probably be in Belgium (Bruges) but honestly can't recall the details...

    Had a Murray's "Brutus" at a beer festival in Sydney, Australia recently. 16% and tasted incredible! Full on flavour for sure, but still quite drinkable for those that like their beer a bit beastly... Dangerous!

    Details from the festival notes below:

    One of my favorites, if not THE favorite, is from a local brewery... strong AND tastes good.

    That sounds good! Thanks for the suggestion. Now, I just hope BevMo has it.

    I can't recommend it enough... it's THAT good. However, I enjoy "malty" beers, and there are very few IPA's I like.

    The Tweak by Avery out in Boulder,well now gun barrel, Colorado. It's a 19ish % bourbon stout I believe. Drank that for breakfast one day- what a kick starter to the day...

    Ive had DFH 120 minute, which I believed was closer to a full 20%. Ive also had a couple of barley wines and some quads that were in the mid teens. Strongest Ive brewed was nearly 12% double (or triple?) IPA

    My buddies and I took down a Mikkeler Black (17.9) a while ago. We were sampling a lot and hadn't felt any kind of a buzz until we split that bad boy up. Night went from "fun tasting" to "how did I get so drunk".

    Black Tuesday from the Bruery. 19.6% or thereabouts, depends on the vintage. My Black Tuesday reserve, at 20.5%, remains unopened so far.

    I've had a fair number of high ABV beers. I certainly enjoyed the high-ABV day the local brewpub did awhile back. Had a few that day in the 9-14% range.

    I've had DFH 120min, but that's the only one mentioned so far that I recall specifically. I cannot recall how many high gravity beers I've had, and I don't know for certain what the highest I've had is. Pretty sure a few at over 20%.

    Last night, I had an imperial IPA called Noxious Beast from Black Acre, the local brewpub. Supposedly just over 12%. I also had an 8% Brett imperial stout last night called Guten Nacht from a brewer called Central State (brews out of the same building as Black Acre, but is technically just renting the space, I guess). Both were tasty.

    Bourbon County Stout Rare 16.6%.

    Fantastic, but def a sipper. I've never drank an entire bottle. Partially because of the cost: ~$60/bottle

    Regularly, Unibroue Fin du Monde (End of the World for you non Canadians/Frenchies) Belgian Tripel at 9%.

    Highest ever, Crooked Line Labyrinth Quad Belgian/Black Ale at 13.2%.

    Malt Beverages included, probably some 40 that I was given a swig of at a party.

    I think this is probably the strongest beer I've had as well. At 20% (and 120IBU's!) it's pretty hot.

    I had Utopias free at a taste panel at work, great smooth sweet beer. I also drank my 07 120min IPA 6 months ago. So caramel candied sugar with ripe candied fruits. Very sweet but not medicinal compared to when its fresh.

    By far the strangest name and pretty delicious:

    Goat Scrotum Ale

    Strongest though goes to Mother's Brewing Company's "MILF".

    Not Your Father's Rootbeer Draft - 20%

    I live in Wauconda where the founders are so on occasion they get a little crazy with the draft making.

    storm brewing in vancouver had a (very) limited release freeze distilled sour that was 25%. delicious stuff; rather port like. was available in a "artisinal" bottle for $1k each, but growler fills were much more reasonably priced.
