    Beer at 27% ABV!

    Anybody seen or tried this yet? Sounds very interesting but at $150 a bottle I'm out of luck.

    I've seen it. I even held a bottle in my hands the other day. I have no intention of purchasing a bottle, though if someone wanted to share a taste of theirs with me, I'd give it a go.

    Re: Beer at 27% ABV!

    I've seen a bottle of the previous release that is not for sale.

    It's a pretty bottle. I doubt anyone around here will be trying it anytime soon. That's a lot of bourbon money to buy that bottle.

    A wine bar we hang out at (Brix) also sells a few interesting beers on tap and the occasional specialty beer bottling. They have this one and have it offered at $200. We've thought of getting ten of us together and sharing one. It is in a very cool package for sure.

    Yeah, we always get all of the Sam Adams specialty stuff up here in Maine, but I won't even spend $15 on a bottle of beer, much less ten times that.

    I have the BT barreled release from a couple years ago. Very good and interesting stuff. It lasts forever and I let folks have a sip when they come to town.

    If you are a beer drinker - I do not mean Coors Light - then you will enjoy this at a 1/2 oz at a time... Fun stuff

    I did try it at Stockholm beer and whisky festival in September and liked it a lot. It does taste more like Madera wine than beer though.

    I have a bottle of the newly released 09 Utopias. Not sure when I will open it, but I will be sure to share my results.

    Re: Beer at 27% ABV!

    I remember reading a review in All About Beer magazine in the early '90's by Michael Jackson about a high alcohol beer whose name escapes me.
    Said Mr. Jackson, "This beer proves that you can indeed get to much of a good thing."

    I've seen and held this some time ago. $150 for a bottle of beer is beyond my means.

    By the way, I'd vote Sam Adams Winter Lager as the best mass produced beer on the market.
