A very very good (and generous and possibly deranged) friend gave me a bottle of Tactical Nuclear Penguin for my Christmas. This stuff is 32%. Yes. As strong as an English Whisky. Thank you very very much, David Clark!
On the side it says:
This is an extremely strong beer. It should be enjoyed in small servings and with an air of aristocratic nonchalance. In exactly the same manner that you would enjoy a fine whisky, a Frank Zappa album or a visit from a friendly yet anxious ghost.
The scary thing is that this is from the first batch. I think this is more a collectors item than a quaffer. I might need to get another bottle to take to Lotusphere with me.
Update: I actually found a company manufacturing English Whisky, and the stuff appears to be 40% or above. Scottish Whisky has to be to retain the name. Hence my retraction over the claims that this beer is as strong as English Whisky.
Note to self: Must try a bottle of their older stuff and see what its like.
