    Strange Brew

    It's 55 percent and wrapped in roadkill, is this the world's most 'shocking' beer?

    Bodies of squirrels, weasels and a hare used to package ale costing $765 a bottle

    You'd expect a lot from a bottle of beer costing $765. What you get is 55 percent alcohol and served in a squirrel.

    According to Scottish firm BrewDog, "The End of History" is the "strongest, most expensive and most shocking beer in the world."

    Just 12 bottles were made and the company has already sold out. They will be shipped out to buyers in the United States, Canada, Italy, Denmark, Scotland and England next week.

    The dead animals which were used to create the beers' unusual appearance were four squirrels, seven weasels and a hare. All were roadkill, James Watt, co-founder of BrewDog, told msnbc.com.

    The name of the blond Belgian ale is taken from the title of a book by philosopher Francis Fukuyama, "The End of History and the Last Man" which the company said had been chosen to imply "this is to beer what democracy is to history."

    Watt said the beer should be treated with care when drinking.

    "It tastes more like a whisky and you have got to handle it in that way as opposed to the way you would handle a normal beer," he told msnbc.com.

    It contains juniper berries and nettles, and its taste, Watt said, has hints of cinnamon, orange and an "American hops flavor."
