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.

sulawang (668) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2013
pours dense cloudy brownie with lots of sediment, very small creamy head, oily, lots of slow streams. Intense thick oaked caramel malts on the nose. Drinks with 9/10-sweet dense malts up front, vanilla, chocolate caramel, dark fruit (date/fig), transitioning into a creamy mouthfeel, oak, alcohol detection, anise, jasmine, finishing bittersweet and thick malty medium bitter. High complexity, high depth, great carry, good transitions, good sippability. Wow 110% intense and exhausts the palate halfway through the bottle.

HammerTroll (662) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 23, 2014
Completely dark, small but brown head. Full bodied, thick texture and flat carbonation. Sweet nose, some alcohol and caramel. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, dark fruit, caramel, hops, herbs. You can taste the alcohol, but I would never say it has 18.2% ABV. Noticeable but well hidden for that big amount. Long sweet finish. Maybe a little bit too sweet for my taste, but still, great beer. (Magic Beer Room 0,33l bottle)

Bottle. Black body with tan head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts some coffee some dark chocolate and some wood. Taste is sweet and alcohol with caramel and cocoa. Aftertaste is very sweet. To sweet for me.

Bottle. Black pour with a small head, aroma is strong alcohol, strong malt. Taste is rich chocolate, loads of alcohol, some sweetness, sherry notes. Absurdly amazing

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2010
12oz bottle. Deep rich brown w/ a superheady nose of thick sweet booze. hints of fruits, candy, & other nuances of greatness abound. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin syrup considering the heavy booze & malt profile it carries. Slight tongue burn. The heat in the snifter is crazy: ether/modeling glue lol . Jasmine sweet & tart (thou not obv. cran.) lends well to the style: Champagne yeast, high ABV stout w/ great drinkability considering whats going on.

Bottle @ pre ZBF 2010. My thoughts are with bierkoning on this one. "My old mum would love this as a liquor next to her coffee, but I found it hard to rate this as a beer". It’s very full of fruity and burnt aroma’s but it comes with lots of alcohol and warmth.

Bier gedeeld met Rikstar, thnx! Donker zwart bier met( of zonder) weinig schuim. Vol fruitig in de geur. Super zoet en sterk in de smaak, bijna liquer. Dit is HEEL sterk spul, wat mij betreft over the top. 10 minuten verder, mn keel brand en ik trek het niet meer. Ik pas mn cijfer aan, te extreem!!

Utseendet er svart som natta, nesten uten skum. Aromaen er kaffe, sjokolade, malt og alkohol. God aroma. Smaken biter deg i munnen med en gang, ikke så rart når man tar beistets 18,2% i betraktning. Allikevel er ikke alkoholen overveldende. Her er ellers kaffe, ristet malt, sjokolade, mørk frukt, sødme (honning?) og alkohol. Den er søt i smaken, kanskje litt for søt for meg. Selv om denne maskerer sin absurde alkoholprosent ganske bra blir alkoholen litt for tydelig for min smak. Noe røyk smak også, men det kler den bra. Medium/tykk konsistens. Fin munnfølelelse, litt bitterhet samt rikelig med varme fra alkoholen i ettersmaken. Varmer nedover hele halsen. Greit at den kommer i 25 cl flasker...

neongolden (644) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
(330ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours pitch black with a small dark tan head that fades to a ring with a little lace. Aroma has a sweet core of chocolate-dipped strawberry, molasses, there some roast but is fairly light and not overwhelming. A bit of oaky leather, a bit earthy, and slight char too. On the palate, quite sweet with a strong core of strawberry and raspberry and currants, with just a bit of a tart edge that might betray the cranberry. Dark malts too, a little chocolaty with a moderate but present burnt edge, an earthy tobacco leaf note. Gets a bit more bitter in the finish, mostly roast I think and a bit of hops. Slight floral character and more sweet red fruit/berries, ruby port style. Obviously lots of alcohol in the finish, matching the super high ABV. Aftertaste has booze heat, slightly tart berries, light burnt notes. Mouthfeel is quite oily and a touch syrupy lingering on the tongue, but not as thick as expected, very soft carb. Such a rich beer in most aspects that I kind of wish I was splitting the bottle, but it is quite sippable and not overly aggressive. Quite like a port meets a stout, which I wasn’t really expecting. Did not get much oak, but am not too bothered!

It’s a total gimmick if you ask me. I’m going to have to force this down just for the ABV.
