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.
Formally 18.2 % ABV

Maersk (137) - MOLDOVA - FEB 19, 2016
Pitch black. Coffee colored thin head. Sourish berry flavor. Tastes wine, black roasted bread with some malt sweetness. Bread and some alcohol in the aftertaste, but alcohol is sooooo hidden and masked. Good

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Powerful roasty, fruity, sweet nose with molasses, ash, roasted barley, a touch of smoke, dark fruits, tar, some coffee, and cherry dark chocolate. Ethanol stings but doesn’t discourage. Carbonation just prickles. Robust, syrupy mouthfeel, almost medicinally so -- if you subjected your cough syrup to fire. The taste is bitter and residual-sugary, with fruity undertones being overpowered by roast and ash. The alcohol again makes its presence felt, but not doubly so compared to your 9% stouts. Enjoyable, in small doses.

0,33 l bottle. Pours pitch black with small lacing. Aroma is intensive, with notes of coffee, chocolate and some cognac.Taste is again powering, but not overpowering. It has thick texture and delivers a delicious mixture of coffee, chocolate and cognac with a long lasting creamy feel. This leaves a slick mouthfeel which doesn’t overpower as I’d thought it would, considering the abv. Overall, a great imperial stout well worth the purchase if you can afford it. This rating was based on the 16,5% version, purchased at a Vinmonopolet store in Oslo for about 150 NOK.

most inviting aroma I think ive ever experienced,wine at first followed by chocolate cherries and sweet fruitiness..lastly a caramel sweetness with coffee lingering throughout..appearance..dark,very slight brownish tan head..taste follows the exceptional aroma with added alcoholic heat and a tingle of hop bitterness at the finish..as it warms the heat and the fruity winey qualities become more apparent delicious nonetheless,somewhere between a Russian impy and a dark red wine with fruit floating in it..texture is thick a bit sticky and again warmth but not blazing hot.. and lingering finish..excellent extreme imperial stout its pricey but you must try it

Bottle. Coffee, caramel, some booze and chocolate. Very sweet and strong, but also beautifully done. Surprisingly not overpowered! Very tasty.

Lordy - smells okay. Some dark fruits. Dark malts. A little dark chocolate. Then the taste hits you like an awful hair day. Really bad. Stale. Old. Musty. Moldy. Every bad deScriptor in the book can probably be applied to this deScription. Ugh.

Bottle split three ways. Pitch black pour with a tan head. Notes of roast, licorice, jammy berries, sweet malts, dark dried fruits and a bit boozy.
