    I am a big fan Uncle Jacob's Stout. Every high alcohol bet from Avery is fantastic.

    Hoppy Quad from Victory was awesome. Def not a traditional quad, but whatever it is it's delicious!

    How do you like the 120? On draft? Fresh bottle? On tap? Still want to try this beer any way I can. Thanks for your reply...

    Mikkeller ForĂȘt Limousine (Medium Toasted). Spectacular, sweet and oaky, tastes no where near the 19.4%abv.

    120 on draft is dangerous. It's boozy, but hides how absurdly strong it is. The bottles are great, but yes, give them at least a year to get it at its best.

    Mystic Entropy is my favorite--closely followed by just about every FireStone Walker beer that I have had over 11%.

    Any of the Knee Deep Triple IPA's spring to mind. Simtra and Hoparillo in particular.

    Other styles rated very high:
    SA Utopias
    DFH 120 Min
    DFH D'Extra
    DFH Palo Santo
    Weyerbacher Riserva (didn't realize sours could clock in at such a high ABV...this one was very good and quite puckering)

    Hard to go against KBS, but I might lean towards Black Note.

    Parabola but I can't afford to drink this once a month, maybe twice a year.

    Flying Fish- Exit 3. (Blueberry Braggot) [15% ABV]

    No blueberry flavor to taste, or color to the brew, they just added a nice tartness in flavor.

    Until just this moment, it was Fremont Brewing Coffee Cinnamon Bourbon Abominable, but I think their Breww 1000 just won me over.
