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.

espenra (958) - Kurland, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2010
33cl bottle from the brewery. Best before 2019-12-14. It poured a pitch black colour with a big creamy light brown head that settled down slowly in the glass. Some carbonation. Aroma is a bit sour. Notes of coffee, omalts and alcohol. The flavour is rich and feels like it grows in the mouth. Not suprising the alcohol is the first thing one notices. Notes of coffee. malts, liqorice, sugar or syrup and dark bitter chocolate. Suprisinvgly short aftertaste. It is a special beer, but this is mostly because of the high ABV volume. If you’re looking for a beer with a high ABV I’d recommend Nøgne Ø Dark Horizon, preferably 1st edition but the 2nd edition is not too shabby either.

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.

Imperial stout dopata con una massiccia affluenza alcolica, non perde nulla in quanto a ricchezza e raffinatezza di gusto. Intensamente cioccolatosa, dolce, con piacevoli note tostate e una sfumatura che ricorda una clada torbatura, questa "intergalactic fantastic oak aged stout" è in grado di provocare un’erezione alle vostre papille gustative. Da provare!

Bottle. Syrupy pour. No head, liquor pour, I immediately regret this decision. Aroma is hard liquor, rum, did I mention that I feel like Ron Burgundy in the bear cage? Taste is light tart, fruit cake, syrupy, harsh finish, this is one bozey bastard.

StoutHead (924) - DENMARK - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep red - almost black - with a small beige head. Strong aroma of hard roasted malts, chocolate, licorice and alcohol. Taste is pretty much like the aroma indicates but with added notes of dark fruits, oak and vanilla. Full body and low carbonation. Thick and chewy. Very very sweet. Got a bit of an alcohol burn in the finish but that is to be expected. A real sipper. More drinkable for an 18.2% beer than I had expected. Nothing I’d want to drink too often though.

MrBeerFanatic (924) - Friona, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle ordered from internet. Pours dark pepsi in color with little to no head. The aromas seem to be hiding something and doing it very well! Roasted and burnt malts come through strong with just a hint of scotch/brandy alcohol. Other notes of coffee, chocolate, wood, and brown sugar. On the flavor side of things theres still a hidden presence that says "what alcohol?" Sweet roasted and burnt malts upfront with a medium smoky finish. The alcohol is in the middle of things that puts the first and last flavors together. The cranberries add a slight artificial sweetness as if it shouldn’t be there but for the alcohol, which steals some of the flavors, its a good thing its there. Can pick up that jasmine just very slightly like listening for a cats meow in a loud storm. Theres a strange sort of balance of the sweetness and the alcohol. Leaves just a light wood medium bitter aftertaste. Has a subtle dryness. Overall its a good experiance especially given the high abv. Very good overall as most beers at this level within the alcohol world would not be that pleasing or able to hide and balance what is obvious.

VDuquerroux (922) - Airvault, FRANCE - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A sparkling black beer witha small beige head ; poor retention. Roasty coffee aroma, sugar, alcohol, dry fruits, wood, light herbal, walnut. Medium to heavy sweet warming ; light to medium bitter. Full body, oily texture, flat, warming lasting finish. Overall, powerful but not elegant ; nice aroma ; warming atmosphere ; difficult to breathe ; expensive...

RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Sweet malt aromas with roasted notes. Big,thick, chewy stout. Flavor is quite sweet but not cloying. Alcohol is surprisingly well hidden. This is a great beer, but one best shared.

BillWyce (916) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Poured opaque black with a small, thin dark tan head that was gone quickly. Aroma was mostly of coffee, with a slightly floral note underneath. Full body, thick and viscous, with a lingering oiliness to the finish. Flavor of coffee with some bitter chocolate notes. A lightly tart note from the cranberries at the back. A woody vanilla note appears as it warms some.

Deu (912) - Nantes, FRANCE - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle 33cl. Black Color, medium boy and medium carbonation. Taste of alcohol hidden by the sugar. Nice stout but a little bit too sweet for me. Y
