Schorschbock 40, The New World's Strongest Beer
Schorschbrau has created the Schorschbock 40, a whisky with a 40 percent alcohol by volume rate. The whisky-like brew has gone on sale in Scotland where it sells for £10 a glass. A review on RateBeer decribes the beer as being very strong and intense but with fruity beer notes.
The beer is sold in .33 liter ceramic bottles. Each one is signed and hand-numbered by the braumeister. Bottles are sealed with wax by hand and come in a wooden case with a transparent window on one side.Only around 40 bottles have been made.
