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.

TheJester (2251) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2015
330 mL.bottle. Five or six years old. Lost a bit of carbonation, but aged nicely. No head. Can taste cranberries and a bit of oak, and there is still a touch of booze.

Draught. Pours pitch black with a moderately lasting beige head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, a bit rubbery. Taste is of chocolate, liquorice, dark fruits, strong notes of alcohol on the finish. Oily sticky mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Alcohol a bit too noticeable here.

Sublirony (41) - SINGAPORE - JUN 1, 2015
Bottle, Systembolaget Lund. Black black black with the faintest reddish tinge. A surprisingly big head, though it recedes quickly. Man, this beer is alive! On the nose wafts of vanilla, spices, dried figs: imperial stout stuff. Yet it's all surprisingly (that word again) restrained. The palate is hefty, as you would expect, but the viscousness makes it (promise won't use that word again) so easy to drink. Oh boy, beware that 16.5% ... Truly top dog stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is so black and flat you could mistake it for vinegar. I say that in a good way. This beer had full flavor and at 18.2% watch your butt! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: spice, licorice, jasmine, herb, cough syrup, milk, cocoa, chilli, coffee, cherry, liquor, oak, vanilla, red fruit; Appearance: dark brown, vanishing frothy head; Taste: intense sweetness, intense bitterness, medium sourness; Palate: average carbonation, bitter finish, medium body, thick texture Boozy, with plenty of alcoholic warmth, aromatic, hop-loaded, slightly too fizzy. Oak is hard to notice. If not for the bitter kick, the sweetness would be unbearable.
