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

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 (7507) - 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.

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.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach. Pours thick black with a brownish head. The aroma contains caramel, roasty, nutty, resin, licorice, raisin, and woody elements. The taste is incredible sweet and malty with a heavy sourness and a somewhat alcoholic mouthfeel.

Bottle from De Bierkoning. Pours black with a tan head. A very woody, oaky aroma. Medium+ body with mild carbonation. Heat is moderate. Flavor is very dark, very thickish smooth toasted malt. Very mysterious.

Bottle shared by mspindler. Pours a very dark brown with nice tan head with lots of bubbles. Aroma is roasty yet fruity almost nutty. Taste is definitely very hot. The first sensation I felt was my nose burning as I slowly swallowed. Some dark fruits in the taste with a compelling sweetness that has a mild back bitterness ( im gonna guess from cranberries) also get some roasted malts and some bitter chocolate. Medium frothy pallet. Very good stuff but very HOT.

Pours a dark cloudy cola brown with a tan ring. Aroma is chocolate and dark dried fruits with a good amount of caramel. Flavor is chocolate and assorted dried fruits, some sharp cranberry flavor, and a good deal of alcohol heat. A puckering, slightly dry finish. Full bodied with light carbonation.
