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.

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!!

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.

Sebilinz (647) - Linz, AUSTRIA - APR 13, 2014
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.

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

HammerTroll (633) - 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)

gorditoabd (624) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours jet black with about 1 finger of tan foam. Aroma is very faint, almost nothing there, though a boozy burn can be detected. Flavor is HOT. Anise, cinnamon, fruit (cranberries), and nectar are all present in the first sip. Boy, is the ABV obvious on this one. This make worldwide stout seem understated. Still, a pleasantly warm sipper. Body is reasonably complex, in spite of the strong alcohol presence, and the bevy of flavors that come through, including a good bit of nice woody oak from the barrell, are all to be applauded and appreciated. Man, this would be perfect for winter time. Interesting and unique. High style points.

zimbo (621) - 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.

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...

davidtjm (618) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2014
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

zenkis (618) - Ogre, LATVIA - JAN 29, 2013
Pours brown reddish, brown thin foam, nice spoty lacing, Aroma - vinegar, fruity, sweetish. Superfast astringent mouthfeel, dry. Taste is vanguard sweet, caramel-herbs tones, alcohol is well hiden to me. Very winey, vinegar flavor, but with ale maturation, very complex to me. Well done. But it’s dangerous to taste this with other samples cause of overwhelming goodness.
