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 at home (from Bierwinkel in Leiden, NL). Typical stout black colour with a creamy colored head. Smells after caramelized sugar, berries, (hazel)nuts, roasted malts, oak and brandy. Complex and silky smooth mouthfeel. Sweet, berries, cherries, chocolate, raisins, vanilla and with a hint of alcohol (although the18,2% alcohol is dangerously hidden). More than excellent!

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)

Black with creamy beige head. Nice chocolate and bourbon aroma, intense but not arrogant. At taste is alcholic and light sweet with many ripe fruit flavour.

Dark fruit aroma with whisky, pine wood shavings and licorice. Very dark black appearance that’s thick and oily. Similar taste to aromas but with nice alcoholic warmth. Very fine drink for special occasions.

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.

coolfunnj (330) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2016
most inviting aroma I think ive ever experienced,wine at first followed by chocolate cherries and sweet fruitiness..lastly a caramel sweetness with coffee lingering throughout..appearance..dark,very slight brownish tan head..taste follows the exceptional aroma with added alcoholic heat and a tingle of hop bitterness at the finish..as it warms the heat and the fruity winey qualities become more apparent delicious nonetheless,somewhere between a Russian impy and a dark red wine with fruit floating in it..texture is thick a bit sticky and again warmth but not blazing hot.. and lingering finish..excellent extreme imperial stout its pricey but you must try it

leaparsons (9271) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 Bottle. Near black with an oily slick on top and a thin beige foam. Aromas are peppery alcohol with floral and herbal notes. Rare for a beer in that it smells sweet. Berries with leather, peat and chocolate. Flavours are sweet berries and parma violets with cola. Sweet and dark chocolate and its bitterness with more berries coming through. Rich roast malts, somehow not coffee, with liquorice and peat. Very warming but non-aggressive alcohol towards the finish with brandy and more chocolate. Brilliant.
