Just had to do this... Curious.

It gets messy as abv gets ridiculously high but a bit interesting elsewhere.

An obvious point of interest is that some beers can be some of the highest rated at their ABV and yet completely overlooked because of their style category and ABV. Several examples in here.

that was brought up before, but I believe itís not here because they add grain alcohol to make it 60%, so it doesnít qualify.

On a side note, whatís the highest abv beer anyone has drunk?
Anyone actually had that Schorschbršu Schorschbock 57% finis coronat opus? I havenít had much above 20% I canít see anything so high actually be good. If Iím going for that level of alcohol, Iíd rather have a nice scotch.
