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.

Dark pour almost totally black tan head .... light roasted and boozy aroma ..... lots of roasted/sweet malts and boozy taste along with dark fruits, some sweet lactose and some light chocolate .... packs a punch but is actually kind of smooth with a dry warming alcohol finish .... not a bad offering good sipper

Pours deep black with thin tan head, aroma is chocolate, some smoke notes, touch of berry, and some vanilla. Taste after warmed up is bitter cocoa, berry, vanilla, some caramel, and a slightly boozy warm finish. Was not expecting a lot, but cranberry works well with the chocolate tastes. Definitely a sipper, but good.

Finn (4201) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2010
Dyp, dyp rød. Egentlig svart. Mokkafarget, luftig skum som detter nesten helt sammen etter ei stund. Deilig aroma med lakris, sjokolade og litt syrlig krydder. Plommer. Smaken kjempefyldig og har det meste: Svisker, lakris, plommer, rosiner, litt frukt... you name it. Veldig "levende" smak. Kanskje litt for mye sherrypreg for å bli perfekt. KI=7. Hjertelig takk til Rune for denne gaven. Benyttes som markering for at jeg er ajour med ratingene, og for at vi begge om nøyaktig en uke sitter på Bree Louise i London.

On tap, Congregation. Pours viscous espresso black with a tan head. When warmed, aroma reveals dusty cocoa, soil, deep chocolate, vanilla and peppery alcohol. Flavor is semisweet, lots of roasts balanced by chocolate. Finishes meaty and warming, with a tremendously long afterglow. Better than expected, this drinks well for 18%, and its richness is beyond mere novelty.

Brandman (2076) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2010
Black body, tanned head. Aroma of alcohol, roasted malt, chocolate and some dark fruits/berries. Flavour is quite similar, sweet sugary feeling. Alcohol is present, but doesn’t bother.

thebeertourist (4816) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle from Ølbutikken.Black with a light brown head. Plummy, alcoholic nose, notes of chocolate and vanilla. Warming alcohol, a lot of chocolate, notes of fruit, some roast. A bit too alcoholic for its own good, but certainly delicious.

Snifter at Monk’s Kettle on 8/9/10. Pours hazy dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma is of booze, chocolate and apples. Flavor starts with sweet caramel and moves to chocolate and apple before a boozy finish.

Bottle. Pours a dark black color with a nice tan coaster head. Bad ass aroma of oak mixed with with cranberry fruit with super dark chocolate. Slight burn of alcohol at the end of the smell. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet taste along with roasted notes and fruit. This is like nothing I have had before. Very tasty. Get raisin type molasses flavor from this. Surprisingly very little alcohol flavors that I pick up. Overall a pretty cool beer but hard to drink a lot of it.
