    No I have not, but when you buy some let me know and I'll come polish a few off and tell you what I think.

    I'm not really into super high ABV beers. They're interesting, just not my thing. Not something I would pay ridiculous amounts of money for.

    When I first started making beer I pretty much made everything 8% or more. Beers that were not meant to be high ABV. I made a brown porter at like 11%. It was pretty horrible. I started liking the beer I made a lot more once I backed off the alcohol content. Now I typically stick to making beers from 4-6%. But I am planning a Russian Imperial Stout that I'm calling "Rockwell Invincibility Stout" at about 10%. Hope it doesn't suck.

    Anybody tried Uinta's crooked beers?

    I've had the Detour, want to try the Labyrinth.

    They're like 9-14% ABV
