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.

kapusil (695) - HUNGARY - AUG 21, 2012
On tap@Beer Bier. Black body, brown head. Aroma of sour fruits and coffee with a reasonable alcohol presence. Very heavy alcohol taste with some dark fruityness, coffee and some sourness. Interesting beer but a bit too strong for my taste.

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUL 10, 2011
Pours pitch dark black with a small off white head. Intense aroma of alcohol, whiskey, dark chocolate and smoke. Great palate that isn’t punishing at all, despite its alcohol. Sweet taste of rasted malts, caramel, dried fruits and a quite alcoholic finish.

Piero1987 (686) - Iglesias, ITALY - APR 21, 2014
Black with creamy beige head. Nice chocolate and bourbon aroma, intense but not arrogant. At taste is alcholic and light sweet with many ripe fruit flavour.

HammerTroll (685) - 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)

neongolden (680) - 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!

sulawang (680) - 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.

maledictum (675) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUN 5, 2011
Bottle. Black pour with brown edges and not much of a head to speak of. The aroma is mazzive Port Wine Vintage with hints of oak, dark charred sugars, and a massive ethanol presence. The flavor comes through with caramelized molasses, chocolate, vanilla, booze, wood, and more booze. The palate is medium to full with little effervescence and a warming finish. Really tasty, and one of Brew Dog’s better offerings.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Pours dark brown-black with a thin dark tan head. Aroma is big, boozy, oak, chocolate, vanilla, alcohol, some dark fruit. Taste is sweet, vanilla, roasty, chocolate, dark fruits and berries, nice coffee finish; very strong and boozy, clears the sinuses. HOWEVER, it’s very tasty and drinkable. For those capable of chewing this beer, the mouth feel is pleasantly surprising. I’m shocked at how tasty and drinkable this is considering the strength. I’d be very interested in finding out how many of these I could handle.

IPAgutten79 (673) - Skui, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2014
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...
