Default 67.5% ABV beer

There it is - Snake Venom.

Not sure how it tastes, but it's sure to rock you - warning label and all.

Oh, those crazy Scots, what will they think of next?

I suppose 69.2% ABV, after the Germans re-take the crown with a 68.7% ABV eisbock.

Only $80 US plus shipping from the UK for a 275ml bottle. Why not just mix a rauchbier with some grain alcohol?
