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.

Hermod (2811) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 18, 2014
33cl bottle, batch #901. BB 16-01-22. Black color, brown head, oily. Roastedness, molasses, licorice, quite sticky on the nose. Flavor has molasses, syrup, sweetness, chocolate pudding. Sweet yeah, alcohol surprisingly well hidden. Long warming, sweet chocolaty finish. Later comes strong raisin notes as well. Interesting stuff. Heavy, sweet but high drinkability for the abv.

nilsas (982) - Bryne, NORWAY - APR 15, 2014
Kraftig duft av bek, kaffe, lakris, sjokolade og vanilje. Dyp sort farge. Tynt brunt skum. En nydelig sprudlende smak av kaffe, Vanilje, Sjokolade, Lakris og noe mer. Dette var noe man burde ha til dessert hver dag. Ja takk drikkes mer enn gjerne igjen.

AirForceHops (2722) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 12, 2014
12 oz. Bottle this bottle has sat at least 2 years. Deep dark brown, some soapy head retention. Aroma is burnt sugar, molasses, and dark chocolate with a strong smoke note. Anise.

Flavor is astringent and a shit ton of dark burnt fruit. Flavor does not translate into a imperial stout that I would want to sample ever again. The sweetness combined with the overwhelming ABV is not real enjoyable. Sticky sweet texture that is borderline a train wreak. No thank you.

Miked1687 (606) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle to glass. Dark oil black pour with a thin khaki head. Nose is fudge, soy sauce, cranberry. Taste is hot with booze. Sweet fudge, cocoa bitter dark chocolate. Some cranberry tartness, dry bitter finish.
