isnt 151 rum and 101 Wild Turkey?
It makes me think all the more that there is no way it is 56%.
do you mean 133.6 proof?
Yes but I was drunk when I typed that
haha just giving you shit, bro!
What will it take to get some more Jack's Abby sent my way?
Some fresh elevated will do it, I will send some out next time I get some super fresh. I can usually get it 1 or 2 days after bottling so I will hook you up.
Here's a question nobody is asking: Does anyone even care?
We all learned a long time ago that gimmicky beers made for the sake of stupid reasons, usually taste terrible.
Looking at you brewdog....
No need to look at Brewdog, no one else is anymore.
Are you retarded, sir?
It's technically called fractional freezing. Thank you high school chemistry.
Yes I am besides this is the internet so I am not wrong the beer is not 65% ABV. Unless you have the exact number you are not much better.
ISO: BCBS Rare aged in 151 barrels aka Bourbon County Bat Shit
That much is crystal clear.
LMAOSHMSFOAIDMT!! I'm wildly amused by all the bullshit and false info being shared for the BA community in this thread!!
Drunk lahey would never waste rye in such a manner!
speaking of ABV... whats up with budwieser ???
To check the ABV, a hydrometer alone would not help, unless the liquid is only water+alcohol with no residual sugars; you should know also the OG if you want to check the ABV. BUT, you could use a refractometer. Its sugar reading is distorted by alcohol, but this disadvantage can be turned into a "feature" because you can compare refr. and hydr. values, do the math and calculate an approx ABV (I developed some formulas and put them in a mag article and in an Excel sheet, also in my site maxbeer.org).
In short, if there is a homebrewer who is equipped with both refr. and hydr, and has that beer... he/she can send me the values (here or better still to info at maxbeer dot org) and I would calculate an approx ABV and post here
I tried some this past Sunday. There is no way it's 65% ABV. I had some Utopias the same day and it was way boozier (and infinitely more delicious) than this junk.
I thought I read recently that they've made a stronger version of it too
It was mentioned that it's proof, not abv, so 32.5% abv.
Bottle we tried said 65%; thus the controversy and "outrage." Candidly, when we tasted it last Sunday, we found it hard to believe that it could even be 32.5%. (It did not pass the "flame test," assuming that's a valid test.)
Where did it say proof?
Edit: if it was 32.5% abv it wouldn't be the strongest beer in the world....
I had it at the xmas-nye bottle share/poker game at my house.
Tasted nothing like 65%. Or 32.5% Or beer for that matter.
Thanks for the tick though koufax21.
ticked this last weekend. NO CHANCE it's 65%.
To sum this board up, brewdog is blatantly lying to their customers AND claiming a false world record, and for those reasons they will never see a cent of my money.
Yeah I'm not disputing they are talking bollocks on a number of levels
I've not tried it either, it sounds hideous
Not that I disagree with you, but this particular beer is not a Brewdick product.
I'm jealous of all of you disappointed folk: I ordered my bottle in October, saw it supposedly shipped in December, and I'm still waiting on it. The not knowing of it all is driving me crazy! riguhpogihb oiu ghboihugorhvobnuvioubnr8opibp!!!1!
151 is bacardi rum. your thinking wild turkey 101.
I noticed that the bottle was a bit on the small side. Maybe they meant 65% of 330 ml.
Come on people, if you really want to freak out about some alcohol content you better try George T. Stagg bourbon whisky, 71.3% ABV (142.6 Proof) it is actually one of the greatest alcoholic beverages ever invented and the taste is a Fathomless Mastery.
Alright, a bit of a long-term resurrection of a thread here, but curiosity got the better of me: Has anyone actually gotten this stuff independently tested? I would have, but I still have yet to receive my bottle (or even the hint of a response from the brewery concerning my apparently missing order (and my consequently stolen money))...
