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

mikkopen (1040) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2011
330 ml bottle. Pitch black, with a thin beige head. Sweetish aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, alcohol and fruits. The flavour is chocolate-sweet, with coffee, plenty of fruits and berries, a warm flush of alcohol and a moderately bitter, roasted finish. Intense and tasty.

Andy_ (1037) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Slightly reddish dark brown, almost black beer with surprisingly lots of tanned head leaving lacing and a permanent ring on top of the beer. Aroma has chocolate sweetness and liqueur, vanilla and cranberry sourness. Taste is chocolaty, liquery and sugary sweet and salty licoricy, little cranberryish sour, slightly herbal. Palate is thick and oily. with little carbonation. Finish is long with alcohol warming but not tasting much. Pretty intense but little one-dimesional on the sweet side.

daleharshman (1034) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 15, 2011
11.2 ounce bottle purchased a year ago at Best Damn Beer Shop in downtown San Diego ($12.99). Pours dark brown with slight reddish highlights and a full finger of light brown foam. Aroma is on the weaker side but fairly complex: notes of toffee, brown sugar, some fruit, significant booze, and a hint of the juniper. Flavor is very boozy with notes of toffee, butterscotch, sweet cough medicine, sticky candied fruit, and light chocolate. I don’t get much of the cranberry and juniper in the nose or in the taste. Heavy mouthfeel and hot sweet finish. The alcohol is certainly huge here, but I find that I quite like it. The only thing I don’t like is the price tag. (365, 519)

DenverLogan (1031) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2015
From a well aged 12 oz bottle...poured in wine glass. Mohagany burgandy with minimal head. Aroma of dark roasted malts. Moderate carbonation and big body. Flavors of dark roasted malts, peat, alcohol, roasty grains. Overall big, bold, bodacious.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark murky brown with almost no head. Aromas of dark fruit, dark caramel and a little toasted malt. Slightly sweet with some alcohol coming through in the back ground. Flavours are initially quite sweet with some bitterness coming through new the end. Plenty of boozy alcohol makes itself known. Definately shows its18%. Quite oily palate with very full mouthfeel. Good beer.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2010
11.2oz bottle, best by 3/3/2020, from grape & gourmet. pours a very dark mahogany with hints of red around the edges with a thin, light khaki head and a sliver of lace. aroma is great with big notes of dry chocolate, char, toasted caramel, and tons of dark fruit notes including prune, fig, and hints of cherry with notes of spicy brandy, sweet oak, and pistachio shells. flavor is outstanding with big, slightly tart, brandy-dipped fruit notes of cherry, pear, and prune initially that slowly give way to massive toasted malts, caramel, chocolate, and roast coffee with a light sweetness of oak and vanilla on the back end and finishing with a sweet but spicy boozy warmth. palate is on the heavier side of medium bodied with light carbonation and certainly too easy to drink for 18.2%. overall, and deliciously aggressive brew.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Appearance: Dark brown with a tan finger thick creamy head. Aroma: Treacle, bread/toast, grassy, berry fruit, wood, liquorice and spiritous. Taste: Medium/high sweetness and low/medium bitterness and sourness. Palate: Thick smooth texture and medium body, no carbonation and very easy to drink. Initially there is an upfront sweetness with a treacle taste this then develops into a slight tartness in the middle. The finish lingers with sweetness (honey/treacle like) and a slight alcohol warmth. Comments: Very tasty and left a glass lace. This is quite sweet and is more like a liqueur in that respect. This is a bottle from batch 911.
