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.

mikkopen (867) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2011
330 ml bottle. Pitch black, with a thin beige head. Sweetish aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, alcohol and fruits. The flavour is chocolate-sweet, with coffee, plenty of fruits and berries, a warm flush of alcohol and a moderately bitter, roasted finish. Intense and tasty.

PhillyCraft (3377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Bottle. 12 oz. Pours a deep, cola black with a similar, fizzy cola-beige head. Aroma is insanely aggressive; immediate notes of chocolate, roast coffee beans, oat, milk, slowly turning into raisins, figs, cranberries, yeast and sweet malts. Body is full, rich, and a bit chewy. Palate is velvety smooth. Packs a powerful, boozy punch in the incredible, insanely long lasting finish. Excellent, uniquely crafted Imperial stout.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours out in a hazy dark brown colour with a surprisingly big tan-coloured head. Rich aroma of salty licorice, dark malts, black pepper, port and cranberries. Full-bodied with belly-warming notes of deep dark malts, nougat, pepper, tart red berries and salty licorice. Smooth but still not boozy mouthfeel. Impressive!. Long warming aftertaste of licorice roasted malts, black-berries, cranberries and and salty licorice. I was very skeptical but this creature, but I must say that like this little beast.. (Is it Gollum or Smeagol in a bottle?

ketchepillar (1123) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle from Jubilation. Opened the night before, but immediately recapped until the following night. Effect: minimal to none. Aroma: vinous, a bit chocolaty, dark fruits. A bit metallic. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Warming but nothing more. Some orange in the finish. Some blood and paint.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle. Black colour with a medium-sized tan head. Roasted aroma with coffee and dark chocolate. Flavour is sweet and roasted with some coffee, cranberries, dark chocolate and alcohol. Full-bodied.

djd07 (3798) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2011
On tap at petrol station. Pours a dark brown with a small quickly diminishing head. The aroma is alcohol and roasted malt. Thin mouthfeel with alcohol burn upfront and malt with a bitter finish. An interesting imperial stout from brewdog.

Tmoney99 (10947) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Bottle. Poured dark brown with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Heavy toasted chocolate, dark fruit and herbal with a alcohol aroma. Full body with a sticky & smooth texture and flat carbonation. Heavy toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a heavy dark sweet finish and alcohol burn of long duration. This is a standout beer and I love the burn.

VsXsV (2401) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2011
33 cl from Ølbutikken in Copenhagen. Pours small to medium tan/brown head. Very dark brown to black colour. Nice lacing. Smells of coffee, dark fruits (figs, raisins etc), alcohol/solvents, chocolate, espresso, oak and some vanilla. Huge aroma. Taste starts of sweet with rummy notes and ends more bitter with chocolate and coffee. Nice but a bit overpowering and very obvious alcohol, though not unpleasant. Medium to full bodied with sticky mouthfeel. Have tasted better stouts at this abv, but it’s not bad at all.

thornecb (4497) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head recedes to hug rim. Oak, rum soaked pit fruit, chocolate and espresso aromas. Thick sweet chocolate upfront turning to chocolate, kirsch, and charcoal in the lasting burn finish. Tastes like it’s 36 proof...
