Beer with a kick like a mule...

...That's the story from MSNBC. A Bavarian brewer has concocted a lager that will not only put hair on your chest, but will burn it off again straightaway.

Described as tasting like a "a quirky mixture of beer and sherry", the new beer, called "Gotterdamerung!" has an alcohol content of 25.4 percent (or 50 proof), twice that of Germany's previously strongest beers ("Blitzkreig" and "Kickenurarsen".)

The brewer, Harald Schneider, stated that "People will only be able to drink two or three glasses, otherwise they'll drop like flies." Obviously, Harald has never been to a major American University frathouse, or an London pub, where, in a few weeks, this stuff will be selling by the truckload.

Reportedly, the German military is looking at the new concoction as a substitute for petrol, given the high oil prices. Unfortunately, the octane level of Gotterdamerung! is too high. Also, when used as a fuel, it emits highly concentrated sherry and hops flavoured exhaust, leading to large quantities of winos trailing behind the military vehicles.

A British version, going by the name "Ozzy" is being considered.
