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.

Something between chocolate and raisin. Very strong taste, but just a little taste of alcohol though there is over 18% of it. Heavy sweetness. I never could drink whole bottle alone.

Bottle. What can you say? Black with a small head and plenty of body although not as much as you would think considering its enormous power. Slightly smoked and very dangerous.An experience.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Bottle shared with Photog. Pours very dark brown with subtle red highlights and a small brown head. Aromas of sour oak, tart berry, vanilla, astringent alcohol, cranberry, and caramel. Sweet sugar cane and brandy dominate the flavor, along with caramel, alcohol, and a slight roasty cocoa and toffee aftertaste. Full-bodied, creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation, and a little astringent. This is tasty stuff, very nice.

quiznoaz (309) - Arizona, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Dark brown, almost black. Wonderful aroma of dark fruit, maybe blackberry or currant. Fruit bomb. A touch less fruit; an even mix of fruit and chocolate would be a dream.

LR! Bottle from Fred at Beverages 4 Less consumed by myself, which was probably not the best of ideas. Pours a thin mahogany color with a fizzy cola colored head of foam. Smells like Bells 9000 -- loaded with molasses and brewers licorice. Tastes of both with added notes of green foliage (spruce?), alcohol, coffee grounds, and oak. This is a hell of a beer. I would gladly have another -- just not tonight.

330 ml bottle. Finland.
Black colour with no head. Port wine, oat, bread and butter in aroma. Flavour is sugar, roasted malt, oat, dark fruits red berries, butter and port wine. This kicks ass.

11.2 ounce bottle, best before 03/03/20. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head that went away quickly. Thereís a small amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is booze (brandy-like), dark fruit, molasses, oak and roasted malt. Itís a sweet and boozy smelling brew. The brew tastes like dark fruit, molasses, smoke, licorice, roasted malt and booze. The first sip was very boozy, but the booziness eased up after that and the sweet flavors became more noticable. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, itís a bit thin but itís also slick and syrupy with moderate carbonation. For a beer as strong as this one is, I think the drinkability is good. Itís smooth and goes down easy enough. I think this is a good overall brew, Iíll have to age my other bottle for a while and see how it turns out after a few years.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2010 Bottle, 330 ml. Wow, this is a great one. Brown-black colour, pours a dark red head, that doesnít hold much. Smell of coffee, figs, pepper, vanilla, licorice, with toasted notes, maybe wood... and pure alcohol, maybe too much ethanol. Thick body, it seems to "weight" in your tongue, and dumb it. Taste is the same of smell, plus oranges and definitely wood. Maybe too agressive, even more when it warms, but a pleasure to your senses. It may be hard to drink for most people, even for beer lovers, but itís really great.
