COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Please note this is the second batch of Tokyo, which is different to the 12.5% first batch.


Intergalactic Fantastic Oak Aged Stout
The irony of existentialism, the parody of being and the inherent contradictions of post-modernism, all so delicately conveyed by the blocky, pixelated arcade action have all been painstakingly recreated in this bottles contents.

This imperial stout is brewed with copious amounts of speciality malts, jasmine and cranberries. After fermentation we then dry-hop this killer stout with a bucketload of our favourite hops before carefully ageing the beer on French toasted oak chips.

It is all about moderation. Everything in moderation, including moderation itself. What logically follows is that you must, from time, have excess. This beer is for those times.

Pours black with small head. Aroma of alcohol, cherry and malt. Taste a bit sour, lots of cherry notes, some dark chocolate and raisins, medium bitterness and full body. Very pleasant aftertaste, you can sense alcohol evaporates on your tongue. Intense beer.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 Pours a thick black with a surprising finger of head. Deep and complex aroma but not as dark as I would have expected. Oddly enough not much booziness for me, just a tad alcohol which brings some freshness to the dense aroma. Some very dark chocolate, black coffee and heather honey. This hits like a bomb on the palate. Incredibly rich and full with an overpowering sweetness, transient notes of sweetened coffee, red berries and some bitterness. I did expect a disturbing booziness, but for me it’s only the overpowering sweetness which keeps this beer from the true hights. Still an amazing beer.

Served in a teku glass in brewdog Tokyo. Black with a thick creamy head which fades fast. Aroma of dark cocoa, raisins and alcohol. Taste of well....everything I want an imperial stout to taste like. Served with a brewdog cheeseboard on a rainy day in Tokyo and life does not get much better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BenH (2200) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with tan head. Aroma of licorice, dried fruit, prune, chocolate, boozy, sherry, wood. Taste of fruity licorice, chocolate, molasses, dried fruit, wood, fruit cake. Quite oily texture with a sweet finish. Pretty good and alcohol kept under control, little cloying. 3 years age. It’s like drinking a bag of licorice allsorts

Fra flaske på Mandag i annen, juni-14: fra Cardinals eksepsjonelle lager har vi nå fått ned den siste av tre ulike Tokyo-versjoner. Denne er et trestjernes øl med bæraktig sødme og fylde (med litt svisker og andre godsaker). Litt sherryaktig aroma. Alle rundt bordet sukker henført. Et nydelig øl å dele i godt selskap. Jeg helt oppi noen ekstra dråper.

Ebony, brown head. Dark berries, sherry, port and alcohol in aroma. Similar taste, but also with aceton. Dry sherry and alcohol in aftertaste.

angel77 (800) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 29, 2014
Botella de 33 cl de zombier, tomada en dos ocasiones, la ultima en septiembre de 2012. Lote 907 hasta 08-02-2022. Color negro intenso con espuma oscura. Sabores y aromas intensos dulces maltosos y tostados, café, cacao y maderas empapadas en licor. Cuerpo intenso con 18.2 vol increíbles que le da una gran sensación de licor. Increíble cerveza, para repetir sin duda.
