In this beer review video episode..the beers that have the highest alcohol percentage in Liquor Locker to drown sorrows in if you are sad that the Colts lost the Superbowl. To make up for this bit of mischief, we did this post in celebration of New Orleans and Mardi Gras.


Thomas Hardy’s Ale 2008 brewed by O’Hanlon’s Brewing Co., England 11.7% ABV

Rich malty nose. Chocolate and dusting of cocoa and a lot of malt action. Chewy beer, bitter upfront and goes to sweet. Lovely finish.

Samichlaus Bier, brewed by Brauerei Schloss Eggenberge, Austria. 14% ABV
We’re told that it is recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s strongest lager. Says “Malt Liquor” on the label. Chestnut color, shades of dark tea. Malty, stone fruit and sweet nose. Maple and brown sugar flavor. I wouldn’t know that the alcohol was so high because the sweetness hides it. Reminds me of a German ice wine or French Sauternes. Would be suitable for an after dinner drink to be served with cheese tray or cheesecake, quite intense.

BB Bourgondier brewed by Smisje, Belgium, 12% ABV

Not a very easy to beer to find. A little fruit on the nose, powerful up front with Valerian and lemon balm. Flavor is creamy in the mid-tones, powdery chocolate and sweet on the finish.  This beer was named to honor the website The Burgundian Babble Belt

Olde School Barleywine brewed by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Delaware, 15% ABV
Clear amber and decent head. Creamy nose and aroma and flavor of a Jolly Rancher. Nose of raisin, some of it in the taste too. Creamy and light texture for 15% ABV! Peaches and a well-balanced flavor.

    FYI…O’Hanlon stopped brewing Thomas Hardy Ale with that 2008 batch. It just became too expensive and time consuming for them to brew and package. I don’t think any other brewer has picked it up yet.

    And that Samichlaus is delicious! Our local beer bar had it on tap over the holidays. Whoa!
