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.

Oakes (13659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2010
Bottle from Cornelius. Very dark brown. Big nose, some coffee, plum, toast...very sweet with spicy alcohol and a nice smokey character. A strange beer, itís ok but itís not very refined or cohesive. Or exciting. The good elements are enjoyable however.

Tmoney99 (12230) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Bottle. Poured dark brown with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Heavy toasted chocolate, dark fruit and herbal with a alcohol aroma. Full body with a sticky & smooth texture and flat carbonation. Heavy toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a heavy dark sweet finish and alcohol burn of long duration. This is a standout beer and I love the burn.
