    Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock. I don't know that Schneider makes even an average beer, much less a bad one.

    Followed closely by Wulver and Rochefort 10.

    Which is why I sometimes do....and get the hangover. You see, it's not the flavor I have the issue with...just the toxicity....oh, and as aging man of 42, 600 calorie beers are things I consider before obliging

    Other Half Green Is For G's, had it on tap at the brewery. 11.5% but doesn't taste anywhere near that.

    Actually tastes less boozy than All Green Everything which clocks in at 10.5%.

    I prefer them in the 12oz bottles, however most beers in this range can also be put back in the fridge and consumed again tomorrow with often a positive change in the flavour. I tend to milk them over a 1 hour or more period, to reduce the abv impacts and since they often taste best at room temperature or close to you don't have to worry about them warming up.

    Adam from the Wood - or any of the variants - from Hair of the Dog. I make it a point to stop in at the brewery whenever I'm in that part of town to have a glass...

    Also, Against The Grain's London Balling and The Bruery's Cuivre have been roking my world lately...

    You're old enough to be my son! :slight_smile:

    Seriously drink those earlier in the day, have a few glasses of water and you'll be fine!

    Of course working out regularly will help immensely!
