Two pals who brewed the world's strongest beer have unveiled an even more lethal recipe.

According to The Daily Record, Lewis Shand and John McKenzie, of Banffshire's Brewmeister Brewery, broke the record with 65 percent alcohol, Armageddon, last year. They sold 6,000 bottles around the world but some fans said it didn't taste strong enough.

The pair spent nine months crafting Snake Venom, which contains 67.5 percent alcohol content. 

"Snake Venom is definitely sharper in taste," Lewis told The Record. "With Armageddon, we actually tried to disguise the taste by making it quite oily. There's too many bland beers out there and we are trying to push the limits. It's still a beer, but it's something different."

To appease those fans who wanted to feel the power of the alcohol, Shand and McKenzie decided to go "full out." 

"Some even said they didn't believe it was 65 percent, so this time we thought we'd go full out. We were too nice last time," Lewis said. "We thought if it was too strong, people wouldn't like it. But the problem we found is that people said we shouldn't have tried to cover up the intensity."

Brewmeister's Snake Venom comes with a warning label on the bottle advising drinkers not to overdo it in one sitting. Most whiskeys are between 40 and 50 percent ABV, according to the Record.

"You're not supposed to drink more than 35ml in one sitting," Lewis said. "It should Be poured like it's whisky."

The 275 mL beer is currently retailing for £50 ($81) online.
