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.

Nephilium (1616) - Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2011
(batch 002) This starts with a big boozy nose with oak and raisin notes. Pours an opaque black with about a half inch of light tan head. This is a hot beer, and could probably do with some aging to calm it down some. Thereís a touch of roasted notes that can be teased out, but the alcohol overpowers almost everything. The finish has a touch of coffee, and fruit, but this beer really needs some age.

daleharshman (1023) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 15, 2011
11.2 ounce bottle purchased a year ago at Best Damn Beer Shop in downtown San Diego ($12.99). Pours dark brown with slight reddish highlights and a full finger of light brown foam. Aroma is on the weaker side but fairly complex: notes of toffee, brown sugar, some fruit, significant booze, and a hint of the juniper. Flavor is very boozy with notes of toffee, butterscotch, sweet cough medicine, sticky candied fruit, and light chocolate. I donít get much of the cranberry and juniper in the nose or in the taste. Heavy mouthfeel and hot sweet finish. The alcohol is certainly huge here, but I find that I quite like it. The only thing I donít like is the price tag. (365, 519)

socaltay (204) - Ventura, California, USA - APR 11, 2011
Appearance is a deep mahogany color with rend hints at the bottom in my glass when held up to the light. Pours a dark beige color with a tiny head that goes away to leave lacing on the sides of the glass because of the alcohol content. Aroma is full of whisky and cran-raisins with an almost nutty smell coming through along with the alcohol. Taste is simply amazing, For the alcohol content this beer contains it hides the taste incredibly well. It is overwhelmingly full of dried fruit flavors and malts. The finish is very clean and leaves a great taste on the tongue. Overall I found this beer to be delicious and very complex.

JulienHuxley (5417) - Trois-RiviŤres, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2011
Bottle thanks to a bud who brought it back from Scotland. Oily pitch black pour, no head. Aroma of brown sugar, alcohol, burnt coffee. Taste is very sweet, not too boozy, lots of brown sugar. Palate is slick, not very much alcohol heat, relatively easy-drinking. Quite similar to DFH WWS, but I find the WWS much better.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - APR 9, 2011
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a creamy cap of beige froth on top.

Aroma: Whiskey, raisin, dark chocolate, fig newtons.

Taste: Raisin, prune, milk chocolate and alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Syrupy.

Overall: Just wasnít my bag. Needed more roast and or bitterness to balance out that booze and dark fruit madness going on.

radioscooter (41) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2011
Working my way through the Brew Dog catalog. My new favorite brewery. Poured from bottle (note spelling on my bottle is "Tokio" not "Tokyo" donít know if there was some licensing issue with the city of Godzilla...) into my Southern Tier tulip. Dark mahogany pour. Looks great. Great assymetrical head. Low froth retention. Outstanding flavor. Massively boozy but flavorful. Dark fruits, raisons, fig maybe, prune - grape... Sweet, malty. Complicated. Like the new girl. Donít let her go just because she doesnít act like your wife. Thatís the whole. reason. youíre. Here. Give her a shot to please you. Sheíll be full of surprises. Wow. Over-concentrated 18.2 ass-kicker flavor bomb. Have with food. Any food. Get you some.

Aroma of oak and pretty strong alcohol. Can taste a sweet toffee malt with a strong but not overpowering alcohol aftertaste. Nice whisky style warm glow felt in the face after drinking

Bottle. Blackish beer with ruby highlights and no head. Alcohol and chocolate aroma with malt. Rich malt and chocolate flavor with light roast and alcohol. Fuller bodied. Chocolate and light roast lingers with alcohol and caramel malt.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - MAR 29, 2011
Courtesy of Maurizio, il miglior publican di Genova, che ce líha offerta volentieri. Non fossimo stati in 5, non so come líavrei finita.. secondo me non vale il prezzo che costa, troppo sbilanciata, ma tutto sommato buona specie abbinata a cioccolato fondente o roba simile.

maneliquor (3482) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2011
Courtesy of Mane Liquor. Pours a deep black with a very small, whispy head. Some subtle tan lacing. Aroma is pretty much alcohol with a touch of oak and roasted malts. Much more comes out in the taste. Loads of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Oak, liquorice and molasses play a small role in there as well. Fantastically smooth for 18%. Unbelievable beer
