Thanks for the help in advance.
Higher ABV beers mean more sugar to start with which yeast will eat up more quickly, so they release more CO2 which caused your issue. Even for my lower gravity beers, I use a blow off for the first few days, just in case.
For the ceiling try some OxiClean, or while you are at the store getting your tubing, pick up some paint.....
