Our area ''Technicolor wines'' were Thunderbird and Bali Hi Sangria. I get a headache just thinking about them. I believe Colt 45 had a higher alcohol content than most beers.Oops Another headache.

I remember seeing Thunderbird. Colt 45 was sold as "stout malt liquor" in California because it had more alcohol than beer was allowed to have. I guess it put it into a different alcohol tax rate.

Lol! I remember Thunderbird was the cheapest of the cheap....sadly I had a friend whose mom was an alcoholic and that's what she drank, because it was so. I think I remember seeing Bali Hi Sangria and for sure Colt 45 beer! And yes"headaches" came free with all!

I remember'' Carlsberg Elephant Beer'' It was very strong and had a 7.2% alcohol content. All the Carlsberg beers are excellent. We also used to drink '' Ringes'' from Oslo. Not sure if they still make it.

Yup, Carlsberg still makes Elephant Beer. It's 7.2% alcohol by weight in Denmark, so ~9% by volume. It's strong stuff.

I love the Smithwick's Red ale, beautiful color. If possible I would love to go back to Ireland to have a pint ;)

I love beer. All kinds of beer. Make it good and cold, I don't really care what brand it is.
I also do not like to eat my beer which is the case with these very stout brews.
I like a lager and drink light beer most of the time.
Speaking of alcohol content. I saw this beer has 8%. See the picture below.
Its the strongest we can buy here in SC.

You can buy much stronger in SC. Check out Charleston Beer Exchange, Greenville Beer Exchange and a lot of other stores. There are many beers much higher than 8% available in bottle shops.

Just a quick perusal shows that Charleston Beer Exchange has Allagash Odyssey, which is 10.4% ABV.
