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.
Formally 18.2 % ABV

omhper (23320) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2009
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Nut brown, minimal head. Concentrated aroma of licorice and port. Dry (despite 18.2%!) and grainy. Not even full bodied. There is vanilla and port, warming but mildly so. Manages to be remian balanced. Port with licorice is the lasting impression.

Very dark brown - red beer, just about clear. Short lived tan head. Dry and fairly soft palate. Immediate spirity alcohol but not too hot. Sweet malt and repressed sweet cranberry. Jasmine is there but well integrated and subtle. Finishes dry and with tongue tingling sweet spirits. Intense!
