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.
Formally 18.2 % ABV

gorditoabd (635) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours jet black with about 1 finger of tan foam. Aroma is very faint, almost nothing there, though a boozy burn can be detected. Flavor is HOT. Anise, cinnamon, fruit (cranberries), and nectar are all present in the first sip. Boy, is the ABV obvious on this one. This make worldwide stout seem understated. Still, a pleasantly warm sipper. Body is reasonably complex, in spite of the strong alcohol presence, and the bevy of flavors that come through, including a good bit of nice woody oak from the barrell, are all to be applauded and appreciated. Man, this would be perfect for winter time. Interesting and unique. High style points.

Pours black, I dont know how anyone could say it pours amber or dark brown it defiantly pours black. If you thin it out it might be brown but looking at it in my glass it is a black beer! Smells of chocolate and sugars, maybe a bit of coffee. Taste is smooth for the percent. A bit sticky. Long lingering aftertaste and a bit of burning in your stomache. I had to use a wine cooler to keep this beer cold as I drank it I could not enjoy this warm. A nice and very interesting beer.

Doodler (317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2010
12 oz bottle picked up today in Boulder. Pours a dark amber with thin tan head. Has a nose of roasted malt and figs with a hint of licorice. Up front has flavors of dark fruit, vanilla and caramel. Finishes with an oak and boozy burnt malt finish. Somewhat hot and slightly sticky, but it is a big beer. As such, nicely done for such a big ABV (18%?) A tastee sipper fo sho....

Guyute_Pig (103) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Draft at Red Light-Red Light. Wow, really enjoyed this. Pours dark brown with small tan head that quickly fades. Nose is oak, bourbon, brown sugar, peat, vanilla, and malt. Tastes pretty sweet, with vanilla, oak, and dark chocolate. Complex brew and I did not find it boozy at all. Shocked how well hidden the alcohol is for an 18.2%.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2010
Bottle@Håndverkerstuene, Oslo. Very dark brown body with good clarity. Low ruddy-beige and dense top. An alcohol scent up front, followed by heavily roasted malts, dark dried fruits, coffee and vanilla. Taste is quite sweet and somewhat fruity, like extracted dark fruits. Alcohol is noticable, warming and not really disturbing. A generous amount of hard roasted malts in the flavor as well. Notes of coffee, salty licorice and vanilla. Good bitterness. Medium to full. Quite sharp on the palate. Powerfull and tasty. But not fully balanced, and lack the smoothness from the 12.5% Tokyo.

Sdaniel90 (940) - Mexico City, MEXICO - AUG 28, 2010
Bottle, 355ml. Pours a pitch black colour, with a virtually non-existant tan head. Aroma is strong and complex, plenty of dry fruits. Taste is very heavy, very strong. Alcohol domains the beer, with nice dry fruit and coffee notes. Very strong alcohol finish. Too much alcohol, but not bad!
