    This subject is a relative thing, but I do remember the first time I drank a 750ml bottle of Piraat by myself and I thought, "Dayuuum!"

    I get wasted off of Notch Saison- so delicious and only 3.8% but for whatever reason I get tanked off of it. Don't ask me why, especially when I can drink 10% brews and not get blasted.

    Not going to lie (because I know they're somewhat "persecuted") but a big, imperial pumpkin ale tends to get to me. I think Pumking usually goes down super smooth (but ofc one is usually all I drink because it gets really sweet) and before I know it it's up in my head space because of the ABV. Some of the big belgians come at me too. The St. Bernardus Christmas I had over, well, Christmas, knocked me down a peg too.

    Paulaner Salvator gets me every time. I can have 2-3 of those and it gets me good

    So going back to the OP on this, I believe the answer to your problem is: science.

    I've noticed that IPA's don't get me nearly as buzzed as stouts/porters/barleywines (even on an ABV=ABV basis). I've had, at parties, 4 or 5 Hopslams over a period of a few hours and I'm not nearly as looped as when I have four or five FBS in a row. It's possible the aromas of the hops in IPA's keep me cognizant, this I do not know.

    I have the opposite. Hoppier beers jack me up much faster than malty offerings.

    I actually agree... a big stout or barleywine or old/strong or Belgian quad or belgian dark ale ale seems to hit me much more slowly and subtly (and pleasurably) then a DIPA.
    But ive not yet done an experiment to control for the fact that i think i drink the big sugary maltier beers more slowly.

    And i feel like three Hopslams in a row is a waste of Hopslam. But if the OP digs it that way, good for him.

    A few weeks ago, my wife and I hosted a Christmas gift exchange/brunch thing. Most of our parties end up being bottle shares, and knowing this, my wife asked that I not drink or take it easy (for personal reasons). My buddy brought some Alpine, Stone and Noble Aleworks growlers and while my wife wasn't looking, I would drink it as quickly as I could (I know, I know). Turns out I got shitfaced. It may have also been due to not really eating anything and having my first beer at 10:30 am, but man...I was not useful the rest of the day.
