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.
Formally 18.2 % ABV

Bottle. 12 oz. Split with and courtesy of JRedmond. Pours a deep, cola black with a similar, fizzy cola-beige head. Aroma is insanely agressive; immediate notes of chocolate, roast coffee beans, oat, milk, slowly turning into raisins, figs, cranberries, yeast and sweet malts. Body is full, rich, and a bit chewy. Palate is velvety smooth. Packs a powerful, boozey punch in the incredible, insanely long lasting finish. Excellent, uniquely crafted Imperial stout. Highly recommended for those who enjoy both solid Imperial stouts and more experimental/envelope-pushing brews.

This is a beautiful beer. The aroma is milk chocoilate, berries, fruit. Very nice. The appearance is a deep black, tan head. The flavor is amazinfg, creamy milk chocolate, berries, booze. The finish is light hops, and a beautiful boozy warming in the throat. Medium body, slightly less thick than expected. A really great achievement.

Bottle: Thanx to Mr.Rask: Dark red colour, with a big brown creamy head. Aroma is dry fruits,coffee,dark Chcoclate,vanilla,cyrup/alcy, and a woody ending. Flavor had a werry complex mouth feeling who comes in a "military following order: Berry,chcolate,coffee, vanilla,alcy, portviny,and ends with a big long fruity/bitter finsh. Wow! What a beer this is, and I think it will be moore complex with, some years aging. Werry nice!!

One of the best Imperial Stouts available, pure rich velvet roast flavours. Magic brew, well worth the price and delivery costs. Special occasion indulgence! Big cheers to the Scottish chaps

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle, thank you Colin and Kendra! Finally trying it! Pitch black, very little head. Really inviting oak aroma mixed with some roast and a lot of alcohol. Silky smooth mouthfeel. First taste is quite mild - all sweet stout and oak - gives way to lots of warming alcohol and roast and finally to ear warming alcohol in very long finish. Man, this is quite easy to drink at this crazy percentage. I hate using the word smooth, but this just feels smooth - perfect really. Everything is expertly balanced. Every brewer attempting to do a oak aged version of a beer should be required to try this. So much flavour, so complex, so good. So glad I got to try it.

Tap @ brewdog Camden, creamy mocha head, pitch black, aroma of aged balsamic vinegar, sour cherries and rspberries with some dark bread, nuts and winey notes in the back, intense dried fruits flavour with sweet cherries ginger cake, oaky winey notes and some cognac,extremely sweet but balanced and not overpowering, amazingly silky, does not feel like 18.2%. Rivals the great desert wines of the world. WOW!!!

A stout on massive steroids. A mere drop on the tongue explodes in oak laced licorice, dark roasted coffee flavor on the tongue.

Amazing. Oily black, minimal brown head. Aroma is caramel, coffee, chocolate. Tastes the same but with wood. Can fully feel the oak barrel. Creamy and smooth, booze very well hidden. Great ale.
