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

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Pours dark brown-black with a thin dark tan head. Aroma is big, boozy, oak, chocolate, vanilla, alcohol, some dark fruit. Taste is sweet, vanilla, roasty, chocolate, dark fruits and berries, nice coffee finish; very strong and boozy, clears the sinuses. HOWEVER, it’s very tasty and drinkable. For those capable of chewing this beer, the mouth feel is pleasantly surprising. I’m shocked at how tasty and drinkable this is considering the strength. I’d be very interested in finding out how many of these I could handle.

shoulderbroken (3831) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 15, 2012
Keg at Brewdog Camden. Dark brown with tiny golden head. Aroma is vanilla, lots of booze, bit of dark chocolate and a bit of coffee. Taste is very roasty, chocolate, sweet and boozy but surprisingly drinkable. Ends with a spirit burn in the mouth with lots of roastiness. This was really nice, but a third of a pint of it really messed me up. I am scared to have it again.

Panzerfaust (790) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle from El Irlandés. Batch #007. At 18.2% this is the strongest beer I have tried so far. It pours a hazy dark brown/mahogany color with some ruby hues: Not the typical Imperial Stout color. Head is dark tan, creamy and leaves an irregular lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, pretty boozy, shows notes of dark fruits, whisky, coffee, nail polish and vanilla. Not typical stout aroma either. Taste is sweet, not very roasted, with a wide array of flavors: Notes of molasses, brown sugar, mocha, orange chocolate, overripe figs and vanilla. Nice but so far it could be labeled as a Barley Wine as well. This beer’s sweetness is not cloying at all but the high gravity warms you very quickly. I can’t feel the hops anywhere, even though the label says it’s dry hopped. Big body, lots of booze, low carbonation. Aftertaste is not far different from what you could get from a Cuban Rum. This is an interesting, fairly well made brew but a little exaggerated on the alcohol level part. I much prefer lower alcohol BrewDog stouts like Paradox Isle of Arran.

Marheb (5005) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 8, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2012 Grossier liquide avec plusieurs traits communs avec le gâteau forêt noire. Absurde quantité de sucres de toute sorte macérés dans l’alcool avec un fini assez sec. Définitivement une déception. On verra dans une décennie si la transformation en vaut la peine.

dogbomb (1152) - ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2012
330ml bottle. Black as night with a mahogany corona. Little dark bubbles stick to the side of your glass like syrup. You can smell the booze coming off this... you can smell a scotch whisky, spices, chocolates and roasts. Sticky in the mouth. Thick. Incredibly warming, with cranberries, bananas and yet more chocolate and coffee. There’s hints of licorice and cherries. You feel this one travelling down. Needs sipping and nursing and dealing with properly. If you treat it right, it gives you an experience like no other. It’s a little unbalanced (and very unhinged) to be the BEST beer experience. But it’s an experience all the same.

Idiosynkrasie (6513) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2012
330ml bottle. Deep black with almost no head. Abv is daunting. Extreme sweetness, sirup, parfait-like. Worth the test, but I can’t think of an opportunity to drink Tokyo* again if i go for beer. Maybe more an interesting experiment for the brewer than the drinker.

slakemythirst (201) - - DEC 31, 2011
Luktar lite toffee, skumgodis och svagt kaffe. Väldigt söt (för söt) i smaken. Syra ifrån druvor/russin i mängder. Svag beska..nästan bara sötma. Njae..ölen är OK för den balanserar den höga alkoholhalten.
