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.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Bottled. A deep red beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, malt, caramel, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, roasted malt, alcohol, and caramel, leading to a burning alcoholic finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Botle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma has intense dried fruits and quite some alcohol. Medium body, slightly fusty, a little hard roasted malt and dried fruit. Very very boozy and not overly pleasant or sophistcated. 080210

Bottled. Dark brown with a distinct red gleam. Dense light brown head. Aroma of grass, roast, sweetness, alcohol, syrup. Flavour of alcohol. molassses, syrup, grass, brown sugar, light roast. Medium bodied. Alcoholdense syrupy end. A bit unrefined and way too much for me.

yespr (30631) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
33 cL bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma is dark fruity and roasted malty. Sweet malty and light alcohol presence with a nice bitterness and dry hoppy note. Bitter and crisp finish. Boozy. The hops rescues it.

jerohen (1976) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2010
Bottled at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Black appearance. Nose isn’t that strong. Very strong flavor though, alcoholic and sweet. A bit too alcoholic, but still nice.

Bottles from Pivo, York. Opened for the Superbowl and shared with Slothez. A dense, deep dark brown coloured pour with a short lived tan head. Enticing aroma that had traces of molasses, dark malts, liquorice, leather, dark chocolate, berry fruit and booze. Wonderful velvety mouth feel. Flavour was absolutely stunning - rich, fruity and full bodied. The alcohol is lovingly embraced and merged pretty darn seamlessly; whilst being warming it never distracted from the delights that reside within. Quite brown sugary sweet from the offset but not in a cloying way. The chocolate and berry fruit stand out , but there’s so much complexity going down here that every sip was a lingering pleasure. A triumph.

Cirrhosis (1192) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 8, 2010
THANK YOU GULLY, YOU STUPID BLOND SHORT PERSON!!!! Black to a ruby brown color (yes I do mean ruby brown) with a thick bubble ring clinging to the edge of the glass what is surprising given the massive alcohol content. Aroma shocked me with how mild it is with very subtle hints of the monster alcohol hidden inside. Earth some and some sweetness with flowery alcohol can be smelt. Taste is very good and very similar to the aroma but more complex. I swear I taste something I want to call cinnamon bun but I know that’s not correct, lots of dirt, flower/perfume alcohol but not harsh, grape juice and mild smoke all show up. This is so viscous its coating the back of my throat like cough medicine. I think that odd taste that I first thought was cinnamon bun is actually Cranberry. Awesome brew, glad I had a chance to sample it.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2010
Bottle @ Beer Temple. Dark color, short head. Aroma of roasted malt, insane amounts of sugar/molasses, which completely destroys the aroma. Overly sweet taste, sugar sugar sugar, some alcohol. Definite drain pour.

Shared with bman1113vr. Shocked to see this here! Dark brown hazy pour with a foamy beige head that lasted with nice legs. Aroma is fusel, maple, cherry, light smoke. Pretty weak nose. Flavor is smoky, sweet, maple. Light acidity. Creamy mouthfeel.
