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.

The first smell forebodes a strong alcohol and some sweets. But then the first taste, and it is so full of flavour and remarkably smooth. There are hints of jasmine and cranberries, but it is a very well combined marriage of rich taste. It is a party in your mouth and a very beautiful stout! On my favourites list now! ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Belle mousse brune. Odeur de torréfaction. Goût de torréfaction pas trop imposant, juste ce qu’il faut. alcool.très présent mais pas trop fort. Bien balancé

VDuquerroux (773) - 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...

brnandersen (2618) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2015
33 cl. bottle from Systembolaget, 16.5 version, poured in to a Snifter. Pitch black with a thin, tanned head. Roasted aroma with rich, dark malts, wooden notes, tart berries, herbal hops, quite some bitterness, booze, oak, liqourice, chocolate and coffee. Taste is bitter-roasted. Full body with a thick texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes lasting dry, roasted bitter with berries, oak and booze. Quite some liqourice. Big, fat and boozy. Almost vulgar. Still great.

Il_baro (2) - ITALY - SEP 16, 2015 does not count
Incredibly complex beer. Due to the great equilbrium the alcohol (18.2%) is well hidden, allowing all the great and variegated flavours to happily invade your mouth. The beer is pitch dark and oily with low carbonation and a nut colored foam. In my opinion it’s a great ’conversation’ beer to be shared with friends after dinner.

HULK777 (503) - - SEP 10, 2015
Vanilla, dry cocoa, and milk mixed with Emser aroma. Taste is intense; very fruity. Lingonberry, vanilla, cocoa. Sweet, sour, spicy. Very sprawling, full with flavours that do not fully match. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lele (264) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 29, 2015
ASPETTO: nera impenetrabile, schiuma nocciola chiaro, abbondante, fine e persistente. AROMA: evidenti e forti sentori di cioccolato, caffè, liquoroso (whisky e ciliegie sotto spirito) e vaniglia. GUSTO: appena messa in bocca sprigiona gustosissime note di whisky e porto. Subito dopo vengono abbondanti note di cioccolato, caffè e vaniglia. Il liquoroso però è sempre presente ed invade la bocca. Carbonizzazione bassa, corpo decisamente strutturato. L’alcool è ben nascosto (sempre tenuto conto che fa 18,2º). CONCLUSIONI: una birra direi "mistica", saporitissima e complessa. Non scade mai durante la bevuta, ma dona sempre appaganti soddisfazioni. Consigliatissima.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. I really liked this one, it had almost berry wine like qualities.
