Avery announces Quintupel Ale

Oh, here we go. Avery Brewing of Boulder, Colorado USA has just announced their new beer, "5 Monks Barrel-Aged Belgian Style Quintupel Ale." 19.39% a.b.v.
This one really pins the weird meter.

  1. If one were to make a quintupel, 19% would seem to be about the right amount of alcohol.

        1. Upon closer reading of the web site, I see that the barrel the ale was aged in is, in fact, a bourbon barrel. Some of that delicious Belgian Bourbon, perhaps?

          1. Well I can only imagine the reaction of certain folks to this american abomination... Personally I wont be satisfied until my long dreamed style the Octupel is achieved. Or as I like to call it, The Quad2X...

              There was already a long winded hate Rant on Americans that was taken down.

                Yeah, somebody's quick on the trigger.

                Jokes aside, I would be curious to see what certain people think of the invention of a style. :)

                  I saw plenty of that in the Quad thread!

                      Perhaps it was a Jekyll and Hyde thing.

                    Sorry I missed that. Clearly this beer must be a tripel.
