Default whats the biggest beer you ever made?

whats the highest alcohol percentage you ever got to?

im thinking of brewing a "nightcap" ale, something is that is the highest alcohol% you can go, and you only really drink a 12oz maybe one night a month. and maybe one on the holidays. not sure if i want to make it a barleywine or if i want to make it a dark beer like a imperial stout or porter

Highest ABV i ever got from my beers was 6.8%

Not that high but after 3 or 4 i could feel the difference between that and my usual beers which usually average around 4.8

Was a red ale, brewed it last winter and i used to call it my "snow blower beer"

Might brew something along those lines for the upcoming Holidays. :

Just finished a big IIPA that went from 1.094 to 1.022 for an ABV of 9.45%

It's dry hopped right now

Little worried about bottle carbonating it though

Belgian Strong Dark Ale around 9.0% that I have made a year ago. I still have a case in 22 oz bottles. I pop one out for special occasions.

I'm almost ready for a RIS that I have planned soon.
