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.

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.

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.

33 cl from ōlbutikken 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 itís not bad at all.

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 itís 36 proof...

Tybalt (212) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Pours a thick creamy dark murky brown with very little head. Pretty exciting to pour (or maybe itís just the anticipation of what a $15 12oz beer might bring). If anything, Iíd label it one of the maltiest beers Iíve had the pleasure of drinking (which is immediately noticed by the aroma). Very complex all the way through....finishes extremely well as its malty goodness fades slowly - almost begging you to take another sip. You can taste the subtle fruity notes (labeled as cranberries), but nothing specific seems to scream out at you. Very balanced - very drinkable...and although quite a potent beer, its craftsmanship is shown in the fact that its 18.2% alcohol content is well guarded by a bevy of sensational flavors.

Absolutely slap yourself and taste it again fantastic. I was not at all ready to love this, but it clutched my turnip sack and called attention to itís unbridled, cagey, twisted theory come to life and had me at hel-fucking-lo. Smells of madeira, sherry and rum soaked cherries and a musty, mossy earth meets wood union of a boozy haze. Flavor is big fruity ruby port to start with a dry tawny, cedar-like sweet and sour duck sauce middle. The finish is carbon copy port and sherry fruitiness, sugary, sticky, boozy orange peel that just stays as long as it takes for you to eat or drink something else. Succulent and satisfying mouthfeel that has all the richness of a top shelf cab, with no refreshing thirst quench in site. May be the finest match for a punchy cigar that Iíve ever experienced (though I do not puff). Really pretty crimson-brown in the light on the edges but very dark brown when the glass is full. A gem in my opinion that is different and is to be celebrated for all itís differences. 2010 12 oz. Thank You BrewDog.

Chocolate grape like, a little raisin and cranberry smell some alcohol toasty caramel first taste is sweet, then you get some grape and cranberry finishes smokey/roasty

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a dark brownish red color with a thin head. Below average head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, cherries, berries, caramel, and faint floral notes. The taste is big roasted malts with nutty notes, floral notes and quite a bit of berries, including strawberry and raspberry. Pretty boozy and hot. Medium-full bodied. Interesting.
