Please note that I keg my beers, so I pay little attention to my gravities. I am estimating that this is around 5.5% ABV, but YMMV, and I may be grossly understating how much fermentables are in the canned kit.
I have had a few requests to post this. This last batch has also been well received by a BMC drinker who hates stouts... well, she used to hate stout
If you are not growing your own 6th generation barley and hops, you're not *really* homebrewing.
