I didn't either, I looked at the label before grabbing it and figured that'd be better for the weekend.... then I went for the 10.5% GD, go figure.

After about 10% it doesn't really matter, or so I've found. >10% = tipsy if you drink one, drunk if you drink two and schwasted if you drink 3 or more.

I'm really hoping this Samichlaus is good. I haven't heard anything non-biased about, but the label makes it sounds super awesome. We'll find out tomorrow I guess.

I'm gonna finish watching this travesty of a game with this 8% bad boy. Never had it, never even heard of it before I bought it, but here's to hoping it's good.

Pretty much sums it up. I can do one high grav. a night and be good, two is a sure buzz, three and I wake up in my recliner at 3 am wondering why all the lights are still on. It's funny, beer under 7% I can drink all night with only a buzz to show for it, too far over that and I have to start counting.
