    OK Farway you have trumped my 20%. Is this penguin stuff brewed with water from Faslane ( where they keep the real things).

    Is it still beer if it is at that high an abv? I am trying to think what makes it a beer, presumably it has to be brewed without distillation or fortification?

    Can you really get something that strong without purifying it in some way?

    Sorry, really showing my scientist roots here.

    It is a normally brewed Imperial Stout it was then frozen in an ice cream factory then matured for 18 months, the difference in the freezing points of water and alcohol means the alcohol is "concentrated". So still a beer no distillation is involved.


    By the way nice to see you back Arkwrite.
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    Is the Vine also known as the Bull & Bladder? Can I get a bus there from Dudley on the same night as I do The Swan in Netherton?

    Ahhhhhhh, thanks for that, makes sense, even though I think that should be called ice distillation.
