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.

Bottle 330ml. Full marks. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, herbs, and alcohol. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Dark brown, with a frothy white head.

Rune (9216) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2010
330ml bottle bought at Ølbutikken. Solid steady, fawn coloured head. Spotty lacework. The body is black as coal. Sweet malty aroma with warming alcohol. The flavour brings slightly roasted malts, some hints of liquorice, prunes, dark vanilla and woody dryness. Full bodied. Very good sipper (hotel room, Copenhagen 08.05.2010).

Dark red beer. The aroma is hoppy and spicy the flavor is a bit flowerly and it also full of alcohol.

bluevegie (3066) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2010
Thought this would be all alcohol but it has got some taste going with it, black body with short lasting head, very sweet but not quite syrupy, dark fruit, chocolate, liquorice and a lot more. This has been in my fridge for awhile and I should have got it out a whole lot sooner.

Big and bold, for sure. Alcohol is very upfront and could use some time, but I couldn’t wait. Despite being so hot, I found it satisfying and maybe the best Brewdog that I have had.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Bottle: Pours a nearly opaque black with mahogany edges and a spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of rich dark caramel and chocolate with sweet brown sugar and raisin complexity, grapefruity hops and plenty of warmth. Starts with pretty good fullness and rich sugary dark malts and molasses with some dark fruity complexity and black cherries finishing slightly more bitter and very warming with some lingering sweetness. This could use some time to mellow, but has some nice flavors.

Bottle thanks Rciesla for sharing @ post NotB tasting. Dark pour with some minimal head. Licorice, sugar, boozy wine and brandy notes, chocolate and roasted malt notes. Abv was noticeable.

Ughsmash (7352) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Bottled. Poured medium or a little deeper brown with a really nice cap of khaki head.. seemingly lower viscosity. The aroma picked up soy, molasses, and a bit of graham cracker maltage (with more sweetness evident than roast, for what that’s worth).. Jägermeister-like alcohol warmth and oaky tartness on the back of the nose, muted a little by the sweets.. floral-inspired perfumey notes accented.. intriguing. The flavor opened with prickly alcohol warmth and lightly sour oak over treacle sweetness.. lightly-charred molasses and honey at the core, laced with peppery alcohol and dusty berries (must’ve been the cranberries).. warm on the finish, but it had to be at 18+ %, right?.. the booze was actually held very well in check.. warmed up the belly nicely. Medium-plus bodied with enough carbonation to keep it moving across the palate.. quite sweet overall with prickly warmth.. this was very well done, and I’d gladly drink another.

Pours very dark brown with a fading tan head. Aroma- cola, floral, apples, waxy. Taste- sweet, cola, soy sauce, port, salty, bit of wood in the finish. Interesting. Medium body. Sweet, yet not syrupy. Very drinkable despite its’ ABV.

Drank this in a whisky glass with a chocolate mousse. Deep roasty notes, warming alcohol, vanilla oak and flowery jasmine. Extremely complex. This was sublime with the chocolate dessert.
