10%, 10% and 13%.

Nice beers but it's because they are Magnums. They say only 41 made but that's the Magnums. They made a shitload in smaller bottles.

Now these are also over the top. Seems this site is for people with loads of money and not a lot of sense.

14.1% Imperial Stout aged with Madagascar Vanilla Beans in Buffalo Trace, Four Roses, and Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels.
9th highest rated beer on Untappd. These have a bid of $500 but you can buy now at $700. That's USA $ as well.

They're being opportunistic.

2016 Bottle Logic Fundamental Observation - Imperial stout blended from bourbon barrels with madagascar vanilla beans added. This "liquid brownie batter" was aged in a combination of WL Weller, Buffalo Trace, Heaven Hill and Four Roses bourbon barrels and finished out at a mighty 14.1% ABV. Each individual barrel saw multiple additions of Madagascar vanilla beans, each ultimately aging with 2.5 pounds over the course of a year.
Oh god.

Yeah, it'd be a bit special. Not so sure about the price though.

Hint about the barrel aging in different barrels. They split the beer up, age it in different barrels and then re-combine it to give it even more different tastes.

It's quite an art. Blending has become a big thing lately, over the last few years.

So i guess the +10% abv means you can store that beer for years? I'm not really aware of aged beers, does it really improve over extended years, like wine?

Improve and or change.

Not so much the alcohol but the style. Stouts and some others can be aged.

There are some 10%+ beers that need to be drunk asap. IPA's especially that are flavoured with bittering hops.
