In the interim.... Let's consider the Steel Reserve Triple Export.
The can claims an ABV of 8.1 %. They say it is " Slow brewed in limited batches using only the finest barley & selected hops. We believe this to be the among the very best beers in the world. ".
The taste leaves something to be desired. I actually enjoy the regular Steel Reserve. This isn't as good. My palate isn't educated enough to distinguish the difference enough to describe it.
The ABV is kicking, though ! I'm down to the last 2 or 3 swallows from a 24 oz. can and I'm really feeling relaxed.
I've had to stop and edit 3 or 4 times so far.
I'm gonna go drive the tractor !
Don't try this at home......
