COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in May 2008. And then forgotten about. A beautiful accident. An unsuspecting masterpiece. A beery time capsule. This imperial stout has been agen in a Scotch whisky cask for over 4 years. For more than 45 long months this beer lay hidden in oak in the depths of our north cast of Scotland warehouse. When we brewed the first ever batch of Tokyo, we descided to fill three whisky casks, two Highland and one Lowland, Tokyo Rising Sun is the result.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours black , nose is chocolate and liquorice, taste is sweet, boozy, chocolate, shame about the rip-off shareholder price.

33cl. Bottle. Pours black with little light brown head. Aroma coffee, alcohol, whiskey, vanilla, chocolate, spice. Taste vanilla smooth sweet, little warming alcohol. Mouthfeel oily. Amazing beer, smooth compared to the Highland, also more sweets and less whiskey.

A great old beer. Big imperial stout, pours chocolate black with no head. Chocolate, vanilla, and berries. I feel honored that I had this one. This is a special beer, that sadly, will not be tasted again. (July 2012)

In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a very dark brown colour with a thin, light tan head. Aroma of oak, chocolate, soy sauce and alcohol. Similar flavours with lingering coconut, chocolate and rum and raisin chocolate. Mild carbonation an oily mouth-feel. Very nice.

.0.33 bottle, thanks Armando629! Poured oily deep brown, so black with a small lacing beige head that went away fast. Very rich aroma with caramel, cherries, raisins, dry burnt wood in the finish. And some black tobacco. Fruits and cocoa. Lively chaos, fantastic beer!

Ezer köszönet Sörmóknak / alias Armando / ezért a csodáért! Lelke van ennek a mélyfekete, sűrű, olajosan folyó italnak, biz isten! Olyan rendezett káosz van benne, amit napokig lehet boncolgatni, már ha emlékszik még rá az ember! Ez egy olyan sör, amiben tényleg érezni egy kis húsos aromát, dohányt, sót, kormos füstöt, kék sajtot, meggybort, öreg tölgyes barriqoet , túlérett cseresznyét, öreg whiskeyt, munkás zoknit és még ki tudja mi mindent. Minden korty egy újabb meglepetés! Hetente eltudnék nyalogatni belőle egy egy üveggel, de mégsem tudnám megfejteni a titkát! Beszarás!
