Of course there are some beers that I never tried with a very high alcoholic strength:
  • Schorschbräu Schorschbock 57% finis coronat opus, Germany, 57.7% (September 2011)
  • Brewdog the End of History, Scotland, 55% (July 2010)

  • Please note: t'Koelschip Start the Future (2013, 60%) is a distilled, high alcohol product with some beer added. Brewmeister Armageddon (October 2012) was a fake (allegedly 65% and in fact only about 15%). Brewmeister Snake Venom (October 2013) is reaching 67.5% by adding ethanol, so does not compete.

BOV'S BEST/WORST BREWERIES

Don't take this too seriously. For each of those breweries, it is possible that I missed the best or the worst of their beers. But in any cases, this could be a good indication. A minimum of 3 beers tasted per brewery is required.
