I've done a 12% barleywine (look for the 999 Barleywine thread) It's definitely a sipping beer, not something to drink just for the buzz, vodka would be a lot cheaper

Unfortunately just 8.8%. I really want to brew some big guys, but I just don't have the pipeline that a lot of you do.

My 2.8% mild was solid though.

16% BW, fed it every other day for 6 days into primary, mostly honey, but some sugar, ala the goddess ale in Sam's book. Too much alcohol heat for about a year but after almost 2 years it's mellowed very nicely.
