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. Brilliant. Liqueur style, like a muscat. Thick, malty, sweet, dark, oak. Warmth from alcohol. Complex. Spicy, dark fruits, floral hints.

DiarmaidBHK (3165) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Draft at Victoria. I can think of no better way to celebrate a freak October snowstorm then by drinking one of these. Pours dark brown with a thin khaki head. Big vanilla and raisin on the nose. Big alcohol on the tongue but also a warming quality as well. Almost kind of a licorice sort of thing. Fantastic!

One of my favorite beers. Acquired a taste for it when Sergio’s in Louisville had it on draft.

calm_dreamer (140) - GREECE - MAY 22, 2012
This has to be the most weird yet interesting imperial stout i’ve tasted. The taste of berry in combination with the aroma of jasmine, berry and maybe wine makes comes with a nice body and no head, even though the carbonation appears on the tongue. It all results in an awesome beer directly for what it was meant to be drunk with, space invaders. Ultra recomended when you want to get out of "regular" and go for something that you will remember.

Cuso (3807) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 23, 2012
Bottle from bierzwerg.de. Almost black color with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, oak, alcohol. Taste, roasted malt, syrup, caramel, vanilla, wood, dried black fruit, significant amount of coffee, alcohol, oak. Strong coffee bitter finish. Mind blowing beer.

rougeau13 (1867) - Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Very dark, almost black, with a tiny, short-lived brown head. Aroma of wood, roast, sweet berry/cherry, raisin, and chocolate. Taste is big and rich, malty and sweet, slightly bitter, and surprisingly mild alcohol flavor. Body is thick, full, and oily. Lovely stuff.

hrabren (23) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle, 0.33 from Ambrosetti, Berlin. Black with reddish tint, off-white average head. Wood, chlorine, jasmine in the nose. Sugary taste, but not to sweet, well balanced with pleasant acids. Aroma of oak, walnut liqueur and licorice. Oily structure, with some sediment. Superb brew.

Coolmac (39) - SOUTH AFRICA - APR 1, 2013
Aroma:, roasty, caramel, coffee, vanilla, sherry. Sherry / port flavours with intense sweetness fade into smokey vanilla and port. Drys from the oak. Just wow.

sjohnny (343) - - APR 6, 2013
Aroma of dark chocolate, fruit and booze. Pours black with a thick dark tan head that lives on the sides of the glass forever. Syrup sweet (in a good way). Boozy, thick, smooth. Not even a hint of bitterness. The cranberries are very evident but in a sweet rather than tart presentation. Woody and boozy on the finish. This is a stellar beer. Intergalactic fantastic indeed.

Bottle. Pours black color, medium beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, some berries. Taste of roasted malt, coffee, berries, vanilla and alcohol (quite well hidden). This is a BEER, must have.
