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.

Blind sampel @ Systembolaget tasting. Dark red-black unclear hazy liquid with no head. Aroma of vinegar. Smooth bitterness with syrupy sweet, rather weird taste of grapes and red fruits. I imagine this is a beer that would bennefit from many years of cellaring.

Jared_Clifton (33) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2015 Pour black with small brown head. Medium body. Initial taste of chocolate and a sweet flavor cream, definitely taste a hint if the cranberry flavor, caramel and roasted characters. Can taste the alcohol but it does not come with an unpleasant burn. Really impressed since it is 18.2%.

Kita (1308) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours almost black with practically non-existing brown head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel, alcohol, wood, heavy roasted malt and dark fruits. Taste starts with sweet and strong caramel and chocolate, follows by rich roasted malt with fruity and herbal note, warming alcoholic mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Imperial stout on steroids...

Tasted on tap at cervecita bar in Barcelona, well poured with thin yellow-lightbrownish head, smells exactly the same as strong soja souce, the same one I mix with wasabi when eating sushi, & well to my disappointment it tastes as drinkin soja souce, as im a brewer for over 20years I think 40-50% of the fermentables is Brown sugar, I admit it is very difficult to create a good beer over 10º, but using so much sugar ends up giving this soja flavour that drinking it in a blind taste will let you say you are just drinking burnt soja souce.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2015
330 mL bottle from Cervezorama 2.0 in Madrid, served in a snifter alongside MIkkeller Black, Nøgne Ø Dark Horizon 4, Black-Tokyo-Horizon and Horizon-Tokyo-Black. Pours black with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves no lace. The nose has huge molasses, liquorice, chocolate, dark fruit and oak. The flavour is intensely sweet, with lots of molasses, chocolate, roast malts, dark fruit and oak. Hops are present, but are very much overshadowed. It is actually surprisingly fruity and correspondingly sweet. The finish is long and roasty with chocolate, slight coffee and herbal notes, along with oak and earth. On the palate, it is full in body with a syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a very nice imperial stout with hugely complex malts. Sweeter than average for the style, but with lots of malty complexity. 2015-01-10

pivnizub (9161) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle: Literally black, small tanned head; solid sweet fruity - mainly raisins, some berries, too - nose, completed by caramel, vanilla and wood, all in all a kind of Taylor’s Port; solid to very solid sweet and slightly bitter flavour, full bodied, what else; port-vinous finish, accompanied by nice traces of warming alcohol. An unique experience…

Hopmaestro (322) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2015
New version: 16.5% ABV. Aroma of wood, leather, roasted malts and a fresh lingering note of red berries. The mouthfeel is quite thick and there’s not that much carbonation. The cranberries used in this one breaks through and provides with a freshness that is really good. It’s almost a vineous feeling to this one, and take your time enjoying this one.

didierlewallon (197) - ponferrada, SPAIN - JAN 4, 2015
El color es negro, opaco, con espuma marrón, leve y que desaparece rápidamente. El aroma es picante y alcohólico, con notas a madera y vainilla. El sabor es fuerte. Tiene notas de alcohol, malta tostada y caramelo pero el final es dulce y afrutado. Pero el comienzo es más duro y amargo. En conclusión: una cerveza encantadora y potente. Cuidado, porque emborracha de verdad. Muy buena cerveza.
