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.

Denna lagrad sedan 2010! Mycket marsalavin i doften. Smaken mycket djup. Rund med mycket torkad frukt. Nu smakar den öl igen. Avslutningen är lĺng, mycket lĺng.

BrewDog Tokyo*: Una Imperial Stout dulce, cansina y afrutada muy sobrevalorada, sobre todo en calidad-precio. http://birrerosdelmundounios.blogspot.com.es/2014/

tricksta_p (1021) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2014
Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, oak, booze. Flavour is huge syrupy sweetness. Extremely thick-bodied, sticky mouthfeel. Impressive with a huge flavour, but far too sweet for me to return to it.

BillWyce (711) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Poured opaque black with a small, thin dark tan head that was gone quickly. Aroma was mostly of coffee, with a slightly floral note underneath. Full body, thick and viscous, with a lingering oiliness to the finish. Flavor of coffee with some bitter chocolate notes. A lightly tart note from the cranberries at the back. A woody vanilla note appears as it warms some.

Watch out, very thick and syrupy, but excellent flavours of roasted coffee and chocolate... The big thing is still the consistency!!! Definitely worth the try.

Westmeister (1727) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Ale Alpharetta. Why not cap off the night with an 18% beer. Pours thicker black with light at the edges. Aroma and taste have a known boozy aspect. The taste is where the booze become quite prominent. Malty, dark chocolate, dark fruits, a bit of soy and more booze. Its like a beer cocktail. Good, fun try. Not as thick bodied as one would expect.

Gaultier (288) - SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2014
@Nedre Mölla 21/3-14. Flaska från Systembolaget. Arom: Mörk choklad, rostade toner & lite banan. Smak: Mörk choklad, rostade toner, söt, lite spritig/stickig. Munkänslan/kroppen är fyllig, konsistensen oljig och avslutningen lång och alkoholvärmande.

Sample at Ale Alpharetta. Pours black, with some ruby hues and a minimal head. The aroma is immense butterscotch and cranberries, with some vanilla and sherry notes. Very, very sweet and boozy. Very heavy body, sticky, and thick. This is a huge, thick, milkshake of a beer. Delicious and unfortunately easy to drink.

Esta es una de las cervezas que más me ha sorprendido en mi vida. Toda una sensación de sabores, olores, frutas, especialmente higos, especias, chocolates, cafés, mieles. Disimula especialmente bien el alcohol. Recomiendo compartirla con dos o tres amigos. Un placer para todos los sentidos.
