I think this is the strongest beer you can get in the US...Sam Adam's Utopias it's 27%. Only 8,000 of the limited edition brew were made. I think it originally sold for $100 or so but now it's a collectors brew. Talk about pricey! $600 a bottle: http://www.internetwines.com/rws28347.html
...just did a little research: http://en.wikipedia.org/w...n_Beer_Company#Utopias
Not available in the states of Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Washington, or West Virginia.
53 barrels (approximately 9,000 bottles) were released in November 2009, at a suggested retail price of $150.
The beer is aged in scotch, cognac and port barrels for the better part of a year. It is described as having a "distinctive smell of cinnamon and vanilla with subtle hints of floral, citrus and pine." Has anyone tried this?
