Which of these beers will you drink?

Continuing with our lunch at 38 Degrees Ale House and Grill : Rose and I tried the Bruery Bois beer (15.0% ABV) and Alpine Hoppy Birthday pale ale (5.25% ABV). The Bois is Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Ale brewed has a pleasant chocolate aftertaste. They only serve it in 5 oz glass because they don't want the customers to get smashed right away. The waiter gave me a look of uncertainty at my skinny constitution when I ordered it and wasn't sure if I should have one. Rose ordered the Alpine Hoppy Birthday, which is definitely lighter. I tried both and ended finishing the Bois but not the Alpine. Cheers.
