    So some of you remember a manifesto about Tactical Nuclear Penguin which boasts a ABV of 32%

    http://www.brewdog.com/tactical_nuclear_penguin

    Well I got a chance to actually see a bottle of that and one called Sink the Bismarck which has a ABV of 41%

    http://www.brewdog.com/sink_the_bismark

    My friends and I didn't actually buy a bottle because they were $80 and $90 respectively.
    I forgot to get a picture of them too. The place only got in 7 bottles of each too.

    From what I understand, to enjoy those beers you need to eat a roasted German with a side of potatoes just to counter how incredibly harsh it is.

    I've had a 18% ABV beer before...Shit is strong. At that point it starts to lose it's taste and just overpower your mouth

    Rather save the money and just buy a bottle of decent bourbon or some Jameson.

    What kind of beer do you drink? Most stouts and imperial stouts are 10 to 13%

    What he said.

    Budweiser, Canadian, Coors, Corona, Heineken, Stella Artois, etc.. They're all either 5% or 4.5%

    Who the heck drinks any of those, though? Not to be a beer snob, but there are so many microbreweries around here that I rarely drink any domestics. If I do buy a sixer instead of fill a growler, I still opt for the off-name-brand stuff.

    I realize this has nothing to do with the ABV, sorry.

    Why do you need so much in a beer?
    Beer's for the taste, the extremely powerful Vodka i rock is for when you want to get absolutely smashed.

    Russian Imperial Stout called Devil in the Details - 16% alcohol. Try it, you don't taste the alcohol and it's phenomenal!

    everyone drinks those beers. only on the internet does everyone drink beers no one has ever heard of.


    i drink grolsch which is considered weird from my friends who are all drinking corona, blue, coors, etc.

    welcome to the internet, the place where the harder your beer of choice is to pronounce the more cool points you score.
