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.

Wot? No 29%-ers? Where’s the Dave?

Seriously, though, that’s really cool info. Thanks!

Has anyone heard of this beer? Apparently it’s been out for a while but it’s not on the RB site.

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

On a side note, what’s the highest abv beer anyone has drunk?
Anyone actually had that Schorschbräu Schorschbock 57% finis coronat opus? I haven’t had much above 20% I can’t see anything so high actually be good. If I’m going for that level of alcohol, I’d rather have a nice scotch.
