9. Avery Brewing's Old Jubilation Ale
Style: English old ale
Colorado knows a thing or two about surviving a long winter, and Avery Brewing in Boulder isn't shy about turning up the heat a bit.

Its Old Jubilation Ale may seem harmless enough with its imitation Currier and Ives label, hints of chocolate and hazelnut and smooth mocha latte finish, but this beast packs a double-diamond wallop. At 8.3% ABV, Old Jubilation drinks like a beer with three-quarters less strength and can put unassuming holiday revelers down for a warm winter's nap quicker than tryptophan.

We know it's sweet going down, but sip it like cocoa. Don't chug it like cider.
