Strong Scotch Ale
8.75%abv. The maltyness needed to cover the alcohol was just to heavy. Very think. I added to much peated malt. Just to much in general.

Barley wine @ ~11.5%

It's coming up on 1 year old this October and has gone through some really interesting changes....at this point, it's quite fantastic.

English Barleywine @ 1.104 for 11% ABV. I brewed it last December. It should be ready for this Christmas, though I might enter it into the Dixie Cup (October) to see how it fares.

Actually I have two that were very close to each other. Years ago I brewed an Eisbock that was around 12%. Brewed a Thomas Hardy's clone back in May that had an O.G. of 1.132 and also came in around 12%. Very young and malty right now but tastes very close to Hardy's now to leave it alone and let it age. Plan on brewing another with in the next month.
