Song: It's very difficult to pick up just one song. Although for different reasons I adore Strawberry Fields Forever and Hey Jude , I think their peak is A Day In The Life , which has all those little thing that make it really unique: the melody, the reverb on vocals, the way the section by Paul fits with the rest, the orchestration, Ringo counting the bars, the alarm clock, the final chord...
Album: Probably Abbey Road. Other albums have a stronger tracklist intended as collection of songs, but their last recorded album is artistically the best from an overall point of view. More polished and better balanced than Sgt Pepper , more diverse than Revolver .

I think it was Mal Evans counting the bars of in A Day In The Life , wasn't it?
I would argue that they never peaked. There were times when they trod water for an album or so (With The Beatles , Beatles For Sale , Help !, Magical Mystery Tour , Let It Be ), but apart from those, every album showed some sort of progression from what had preceded it.
