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.

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 (2333) - 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.

angel77 (957) - 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.

gegwilson (1178) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog, King’s Cross. Pitch black with a small chocolatey tan head. Very rich, syrupy sweet with treacle, coffee and chocolate flavours. Boozy in a pleasant warming way. Not harsh at all. Great, but maybe a touch too intense if I’m being picky.

Dark oily molasses colour, creamy tan head, syrupy-sweet, boozy, molasses, dried fruits, earthy/woody, rich chocolate, full body, thick, syrupy texture, long boozy-bitter finish. Sensational, so glad I cellared it for a couple of years.
