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.

Elle est de couleur noire et la mousse et peu intense et descend assez rapidement Au nez on va sentir principalement des notes de chocolat noir amandes grillées chicorée En bouche la première chose qu’on va sans dire c’est sa consistance elle est très très épaisse personnellement je n’ai jamais vu une bière aussi épaisse et sirupeuse que celle-ci elle a une amertume extrêmement forte également on va sortir en arrière bouche un Roland d’alcool et on sent toujours des saveurs de chocolat noir comme au nez Avis aux dégustateur aguerri

DenverLogan (856) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2015
From a well aged 12 oz bottle...poured in wine glass. Mohagany burgandy with minimal head. Aroma of dark roasted malts. Moderate carbonation and big body. Flavors of dark roasted malts, peat, alcohol, roasty grains. Overall big, bold, bodacious.

Dark like the pits of hell. Burnt Roasted nose. Low carbonation very sweet. Overwhelms the roasted flavours

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

ZacM612 (279) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2015
Black, oily appearance with minimal tan head. Boozy aroma with a little malt. Sweet flavor with a bit of alcohol burn. Okay.

JHeath99 (1313) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle shared by Kevin. Pours an opaque black with a thin layer of light brown head. Was not a fan, aroma was okay with malts and coffee, but the taste was just too overall sweet and sugary.

Imaena (1991) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 10, 2015
Botle. This is a beast. Thick, sweet, burning, fruity, eccentric, and funky. So much going on it is hard to capture in one place. This is near perfection.

androman (733) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2015
33cl bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Body is pitch black, head is very small, brownish, creamy, fully diminishing, fair lacing. Nose is sweetish liqueurish, flavor is molasses, coffee liqueur, light smoke, chocolate. Heavy sweet, heavy bitter. Finish is long lasting roasty liqueurish mostly heavy bitter, light sweet, alcohol is present but 18% ABV is not recognized. Full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Excellent heavy but drinkable tasty dessert beer, great one.
