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.

Gran birra, intensa e ammaliante. Piacevole e di ottima beva nonostante l’elevato grado alcolico

Douberd (3475) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2015
(BrewDog Tokyo*) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 16.5% Pitch black colour on the body, a small line of dark brown head on top, fizzy with low retention, leaving no lacing behind. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, alcohol, great fruity notes. Great taste, wow! Again fruity notes, vanilla, wood, alcohol, roasted malts, liquorice coal, blackberries, chocolate cake, light grass and even some hops, moderate sweet all in all but no cloying. Medium thick body, carbonation higher than I expected but on good levels, very sticky on the palate. Very nice and dangerous, I don’t dare finishing the bottle tonight.

CraftyBeerTour (137) - Barcelon, SPAIN - MAR 3, 2015
Rich, ripe banana, liquorice, marzipan plus aroma. Black, viscous. Thin coffee cream-colored head. Smooth and petroly in the mouth. Warms. Juices up with rum-soaked raisins. A beaut.

alkolas510 (922) - Vänersborg, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Kolsvart tjock med mellanstort ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar mjölkchoklad och lite kaffe. Jätte söt och tror inte att den kan vara 16.5%?

Bottle from Brewdog. Pours black with a single finger tan head. Aroma of Chocolate, cream, coffee, dark fruits, winter berries, roasted malts. Tastes much the same, with a bit of alcohol-you don’t notice too much of a burn of the throat, nice.

Espectacular Imperial Stout envellida amb chips de roure francès, Molt bon exemple d’una oxidació ben conduïda.

Blind sampel @ Systembolaget tasting. Dark red-black unclear hazy liquid with no head. Aroma of vinegar. Smooth bitterness with syrupy sweet, rather weird taste of grapes and red fruits. I imagine this is a beer that would bennefit from many years of cellaring.
