It's originally 8%, but I stupidly took the advice of my LHBS and substituted 6 lbs of malt extract for the 9 lbs, so it'll probably end up much lower ABV.
The recipe was found here:
HOMEBREW Digest #1229 Mon 20 September 1993
In addition to the 6 lbs substitution, I used 120 caramel malt, and 2 oz of Northern Brewer.
I had the same temperature problem as my first Scotch Ale (fermented ~74 degrees), so it'll probably taste horrible for a few months while the flavors (hopefully) work their way out...
