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.

Bottle shared with quiznoaz. Plums, caramel, sugar, slight alcohol in the nose. Flavors follow suit - very nice, flavorful stout.

TrefwoordPunk (830) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Pours black with a small tan head and an aroma of dark malts, syrup, alcohol and fresh fruits. The taste is sweet, tastes like syrup, and very alcoholic. The alcohol and the sweet syrup is pretty nasty and almost too much too swallow. I don’t really like it, especially for the high price for this beer. I’m slightly disappointed.

Draft: didn’t write any notes on the spot so trying to do this from memory, dark black with a tan head, malty and coffee aroma, dark fruit, malt, coffee, bitter chocolate flavor, full bodied.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2010
Pours a thick dark reddish-brown with a pretty good head. The aroma was alcohol-of course, syrup, glue-every hyper beer I smell smells like glue. The taste is a very sweet syrupy roast. Very carbonated hot beer. This beer made me conclude that I am not into hyper beers.

RickTStiles (826) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Pours inky black with no head or lacing. aroma is faily mild, consisting of sweet molases and licorice. Taste is extreme, almost too much. Very sweet taste, mostly of dextrose. cranberries make an appearance in the tste along with caramel, chocolate and a wollop of hops. finish is lined with jasmine and filled with chocolate and grapefruit. interesting. This brewmight be a bit much for me.

I love imperial stouts, but getting this up to 18% means that it is far too sweet for me.

MotherBrother (817) - Aalborg, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2011
Pour dark opaque, with a Big off-white head. Aroma is heavy of coffee, burned malts and licorice. Full fat body. I mean obese. But i like it. Of course, there’s a lot of heat, which means, this beer lasts for a long time, so plenty of beer for the buck. Did i mention, that this beer is heavy?

On tap at BrewDog Nottingham. This is where details start to get a bit sketchy but my rapidly deteriorating scrawl seems to suggest this was "dark like the night", "bittersweet malt" and "had aroma". With observations like that a future as a professional beer critic surely awaits...

Csak a jó sör, Budapest. Mélyfekete, olajszerű színe van, mely fény felé tartva enyhén bíborosan csillog. Egészen komoly, krémes barna habot fejleszt, ami meglepően sokáig kitart. Illata még nem ígér komolyabb izgalmakat, inkább egy erősen komlózott, jó alkoholos, aszalt gyümölcsös és likőrös (azt szándékosan nem írom, hogy "egyszerű", vagy "hétköznapi", mert egy itthon edzett sörkedvelőnek ilyen nincs) imperial stout-ot takar, azonban ahogy melegszik, egyre inkább érezni a komolyabb alkoholtartalmat. Íze bizsergetően alkoholos, de nem kellemetlen, inkább egy "komlólikőrnek" tűnik, melyben erősen érezni a hordó jellegzetes fás ízét, aszalt gyümölcsöket, kevés kávét és fekete csokit. Nem éppen meglepő, hogy igen sűrű, szinte szirupos állaga van, és az alkoholtól inkább édesbe csúszik, de a sörös szénsavérzet azért kellő ihatóságot biztosít. Igazán extravagáns sör, jobb mikulásajándékot el sem tudnék képzelni :-), de legközelebb nem egyedül esnék neki.
