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.

I am drooling from smelling this! Ultra dark red going dark brown with a small deep tan cap that resides forever. Excellent lacing... well, maybe not excellent but considering this is 18% itís pretty good.. Man, Smells thick as hell! Awesome. Sweet, intense, cranberries, cocoa, plums, raisin, roast, fragrant and floral, weak pepper. Iím reviewing this pretty close to room temperature. Heavy heavy roast.. this is excellent. Damn, this tastes excellent. Tasty cranberries, alcohol, spices, plum, touch of fruit cake, flowers, a bit of heat initially, raisins, candy, Halls cough drops,.. getting sweeter as I go. Thick roast, very fruity.. I donít quite see the 90 IBU but the bitterness is by no means silenced. Quite thick mouth feel but not overly which is surprising. Smooth, a bit of carbonation which all help leaving my mouth soft and soothed. Good bitterness, finishes oddly fruity with a spice and a light burn on occasion. I love this beer. 10 thumbs up!

Bottle thanks to texasjeep shared at the Feb. Houston RB tasting. Black with a thick white head. Nose is spicy and herbal. Taste is sweet, herbally, chocolately. Thick and chewy, with a high but tolerable alcohol presence. Almost too easy to drink. Good stuff here.

(11.2oz bottle, BB 14/12/19, courtesy of angrypirate06) Pours a mahogany body with a small tan head. Aroma of alcohol, roasted grain, and nuts. Flavor of ALCOHOL, roasted grain, caramel, toffee, oak, and apple. Extremely hot and undrinkable. Another over hyped high alcohol mess.

ilovedarkbeer (2379) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Bottle thanks to angrypirate06. Pours a dark orange tiger eye color. Nose is red candied apple skin and rubbing alcohol. Taste is cognac, dark brown sugar, and oak. Hot lively mouthfeel. This beer is a hot mess. Like the girl who pukes outside a house party, then starts crying, and hiccuping all while her makeup is running and there is vomit dripping out of her nose and mouth. You feel bad for her but you donít really want to get near her.

dyetube (1243) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2010
This beer pours black with a thin tan head that dissipates very quickly. The aromas are strong Cranberries, sweet sugar and faint chocolate. The flavors are cranberries, light chocolate and a hint of the jasmin. This is a powerful beer that packs quite a punch!
