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

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 !

_angst_ (4556) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2011
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.

Provades pĺ "Mitt kök" mässan med Emmelie och Jenny, en öl fylld med karaktär. Chokladig och mörk i doften. Smak av choklad och lakrits. Borde vara utmärkt till söta efterrätter.

Ganska alkoholstark, men fyllig vätska, trevliga brända toner, kaffe och choklad, lite arrak. Ganska söt - lite kaffesumpig i eftersmaken. Mycket stabil och trevlig

IrishBoy (4111) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 9, 2011
12 oz bottle from Total Beverage, Westminister. Nose is heavy on prunes, red winey oak, almost a SA TB BW aroma with alcohol, licorice, and some light chocolate and vanilla. Black with a medium tan head. Flavor is prunes, woody oak, vanilla, some hints of soy sauce (guess that is why the aroma hinted SA Triple Bock as the ones I’ve had were lighter soy) whiskey, and an alcohol warmth for the finish.

Geiserich (4140) - Linz, AUSTRIA - NOV 6, 2011
Bottle: Black color, dark brown foamy head. Intensive, strong aroma, first a intensive note of alcohol, brandy, grapes, rum plumes, wood barrels. Flavor is intensive and full of alcohol, brandy, dark fruits, barrel notes, chocolate, cacao. Burning alcohol on my tongue. Very alcoholic, but I liked it very much.

badgerben (4887) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Nov 3, International Stout Day. Batch 3; Best Before 16/02/2020 After a barley wine on IPA day, I’ll stick with stout on stout day. Black color with no head. Light sweet whisky aroma. Seems syrupy. Very boozy flavor and quite rummy. Some raisin/plum character. Light sherry/whisky. Herbal hints? Oddly dry. Full bodied.

Boutip (5940) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2011
Bottle: Poured a thick-black color stout with a medium size dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of dark roasted coffee with some vinous notes and light liquorice notes. Taste is also a mix between some dark roasted coffee notes with some light vanilla and liquorice. This beer is sweet do not overwhelmingly so. Body is full with oily texture and good carbonation with surprisingly no alcohol notes. Well brewed and more enjoyable then I was expecting.
