If you're the type of java lover who sometimes drinks pots upon pots of the strongest black coffee available, the brewers at an Australian coffee shop have the perfect cup of joe for you. 

The Adelaide Ass-Kicker sold at Viscous Coffee in Christies Beach, Australia isn't for the faint of heart. This hyper-caffeinated concoction contains four shots of espresso, four 48-hour brewed cold drip ice cubes, 120 ml of 10-day brewed cold drip coffee, and lastly, four more 48-hour brewed cold drip ice cubes. 

All in all, the buzz-worthy beverage will deliver 5 grams of caffeine to your central nervous system. If that sounds like too much caffeine for one sitting, it is. It's probably deadly. 

Viscous owner Steve Bennington told The Adelaide Advertiser that the drink was originally crafted for an ER nurse who needed to be awake and alert for an unexpected overnight shift. 

 “She consumed her drink over two days and it kept her up for almost three days," Bennington said. 

There you go, folks. Consuming 80 times the amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee will, surprise, surprise, keep you up for days. In fact, there's even a sign warning customers to drink it at their own risk. 

Who needs illicit drugs when you can have an Adelaide Ass-Kicker instead?
