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

Pours pitch dark black with a small off white head. Intense aroma of alcohol, whiskey, dark chocolate and smoke. Great palate that isn’t punishing at all, despite its alcohol. Sweet taste of rasted malts, caramel, dried fruits and a quite alcoholic finish.

rodenbach99 (4208) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2011
Bouteille de 330ml. Bičre brune foncée avec une mousse brune qui d’une surprenante façon est durable. Nez puissant, d’alcool, cerises, boisé, vanille, gâteau au rhum, complexe. La texture est huileuse, ronde, chaude. La bičre offre une chaleur inégalée, sucrée mais tout de męme buvable. Surprenante avec des frissons garanties.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2011
Black colour with a large frothy tan head. Roasted malt, coffee and vinegar aroma. Danger danger high voltage! Shock to the taste buds on the first sip. Made my hair stand on end. Extremely rich malt, molasses, brown sugar sweetness which pierces every taste bud in your mouth. Im enjoying this beers huge balls and originality. Sugar in glass and worth the experience.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 28, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a tan head. Smells of sweet dried berries, caramel and some smoke. Tastes cloyingly sweet, with roasted coffee, cranberries, and alcohol. Full-bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation, finishes dry with a warming alcohol. This one packs quite a punch.

MotherBrother (898) - Aalborg, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2011
Pour dark opaque, with a Big off-white head. Aroma is heavy of coffee, burned malts and licorice. Full fat body. I mean obese. But i like it. Of course, there’s a lot of heat, which means, this beer lasts for a long time, so plenty of beer for the buck. Did i mention, that this beer is heavy?

tmongoose (2219) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 25, 2011
on draft in a small pour, almost pitch black with no head and leaves an almost oily lacing. aroma is of light coffee and chocolate and big amounts of black licorice and alchol hence the 18.2%...the flavor is of big black licorice and alcholo and those same undertones of coffee and chocolate. small taster is better. this as it set gets almost sticky sweet with that burn.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 24, 2011
Csak a jó sör, Budapest. Egészen sötét fekete színe van, ami fény felé tartva vörösesen ragyog. Világosbarna, vékony, krémes habja van, ami gyorsan eltűnik. Intenzív illata van, ami erősen megy likőrös, alkoholos, gyógynövényes, édeskés és enyhén tejcsokis. Egészen édesen, alkoholosan kezdődik, olyan aszalt meggyel, ami sokáig valamilyen finom szeszben ázott, aztán jönnek sötét bogyók, gyógyfüvek, trüffel csokoládé, kávé. Olajos, nehéz teste van, alig buborékos és rendesen érezni rajta a magas alkoholtartalmat. Utóíze keserédesen nyit, aztán átmegy egy erősen keserű ízbe, olyanba, mintha egy kávészemet roppantanánk szét a fogaink között, ami az alkohol édességével együtt sokáig tart és elzsibbasztja a szánkat. Olyan az egész, mintha egy sörlikőrt kóstolgatnánk, amit lassan, apró kortyokban kell élvezni. Nagyon különleges és érdekes sör, nekem minden extremitásával együtt bejött. Kuuuva jó!

I had Tokyo a while ago but it is still very vivid in my mind. As a matter of fact I think I still have a layer of it on my tongue. It was my first very strong beer of any kind and it really was a treat. As soon as you crack the top the aroma of toast, summer fruits, spice, liquorice and an antique furniture shop. It seemed quite viscous on the pour with a light brown head which held pretty well. The stout seemed very dark initially but it seemed to lighten up a little. Well to say I got a slap in the mouth on the taste is an understatement. You can feel every bit of the 18.2% and I did think to myself there is no way this is stout. Cranberry comes in very strongly on the palate as does that liqourice and toffee. This is a sipper and what a sipper !

330 ml bottle gifted by friend and consumed on November 12. Pours pitch black with a chocolate brown head that leaves almost no trace while dissipating. Smell is intense with lots of alcohol, vanilla, milk chocolate and bourbon. Taste is extremely sweet with very clear wood and vanilla notes. There’s roasted malts and some sweet chocolate. There’s also a fruitiness that reminds me of ripe grapes and red berries. It has a distinct Madeira quality to it with the fruitiness and alcohol. Finish is slightly dry, quite fruity and rather bitter with cranberries and bitter chocolate.
