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.

veceo (781) - CROATIA - OCT 14, 2014
Pitch black color, average sized brown head. Aroma of dark fruits and chocolate. Full body, soft carbonation. Medium to high sweetness, solid amount of bitterness also. Dark fruits, chocolate and alcohol in taste. Also, there’s a nice woody cognac feel. Smooth texture, very complex character and usual alcohol warmth. Intense as hell, pure force.

fantti (777) - FINLAND - JAN 14, 2013
Kaatuu snifteriin sysimustana vaahdon ollessa 3/4 sormen paksuinen ja maitokahvin värinen. Se myös jää saarekkeena oluen pinnalla. Monipuolisessa hajussa ensimmäisenä tulee nenään paahdetun maltaan, suklaan ja lakritsin aromeja. Alkoholisuuskin tuntuu. Tarkemmalla haistelulla sain myös kuivattua hedelmää ja maitoisuutta. Täysi kymppi, jos alkoholisuus ei olisi niin vahvasti läsnä. Maku on jälleen hyvin monipuolinen: rusinaa, lakritsia, suklaata, marjaisuutta, kuivattua hedelmää sekä alkoholisuutta ainakin mukana. Suutuntuma on hyvin lämmittävä, jopa hieman poltteleva. Hyvin kuitenkin tasapainossa. Tokyo tähdellä oli itselleni iso yllätys, alkoholi oli saatu erittäin hyvin piiloon prosentteihin nähden ja sekä haju että maku olivat erittäin monipuoliset ja ennen kaikkea miellyttävät. Tasapainokin oli kunnossa. Todellinen siemailuolut, pullollisen juomiseen kannattaa varata aikaa..

Courtesy of Maurizio, il miglior publican di Genova, che ce l’ha offerta volentieri. Non fossimo stati in 5, non so come l’avrei finita.. secondo me non vale il prezzo che costa, troppo sbilanciata, ma tutto sommato buona specie abbinata a cioccolato fondente o roba simile.

Provata alla spina. Prepotente! Color cioccolata fondente con schiuma persistente da cappuccino. Complessa, si apre in bocca in una profusione di sapori. Su tutti la liquirizia, l’alcol si fa sentire...

arsol (750) - NORWAY - MAR 8, 2014
Svart farge med lys brunt skum. Lukter kaffe sjokolade, salt, fruktig og alkoholdunst. Får veldig sherryfeeling i smaken. Kjenner godt alkoholvarme. Ettersmaken kjenner jeg godt med sødme og fruktig bitterhet.

HammerTroll (742) - 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)

zimbo (740) - SCOTLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Draft at BrewDog Edinburgh. Thickish glossy slick and syrupy. Black shine. More of a (tough still slight) liquorice quality to it. Alcohol is well hidden until you attempt to stand. Almost like a liqueur.

bmerz (733) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Draught at Birch & Barley with a mexican chocolate tart w/tamarind ice cream. Worked well for that. Perhaps my rating would be lower if not influenced by that. The menu also used the old description mentioning brewed with cranberries and jasmine. but I may have got the former but not the later. Beer color of raisins with good shading, a little soapy head that dissipated very quickly. Aroma of cranberries and strong with raisins and booze. Taste of oak, raisins, sharply bitter, spicy, rust. Thin mouthfeel with a gritty texture and little carbonation. Surprisingly well put together. Despite the dominance of the booze it was not too much.

kapusil (730) - 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.

Mad_Ferret (728) - SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2011
Bottle. Black (clear red) with a short and thick, but short-lived, brown head that didn’t lace too much. Aroma is roasted and sweet boozy with licorice, cold coffee with lots of sugar, caramel, berries, sauna, some vanilla. Taste is very sweet with a big boozy warmth. Cold coffee with loads of sugar, dark chocolate, dark fruits, licorice, vanilla. Yes Per, it’s quite port like. Medium to bigger body with very smooth carbonation. Its very tasty but way too sweet for me.
