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.

PhillyCraft (2850) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Bottle. 12 oz. Pours a deep, cola black with a similar, fizzy cola-beige head. Aroma is insanely aggressive; 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, boozy punch in the incredible, insanely long lasting finish. Excellent, uniquely crafted Imperial stout.

Fin (7035) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2009
Had this in the camper at campsite, Great Gransden, Cambridgeshire 01-10-09 Big thanks to Craig for this beer. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is copper coins (Loz) touch of blackcurrants. Fruitier than I expected and whilst there is some coffee its is not quite what I imagined. Wonderful length, drinking far easier than it has any right to. Gradual burn at the end. A pretty good beer but not great. A7 A4 F7 P3 Ov13 3.4

hopscotch (8542) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Bottle… Pours a dark caramel color and sits mostly black in my glass with a small, swirling bit of retention. The aroma is “slap-it-to-ya” ethanol with undertones of cocoa nibs, charcoal, cranberries and jasmine. Full-bodied and oily with stinging carbonation. The flavor is sweet and tart. More fruity than chocolaty and a bit nutty. Alcohol is not fully evident. Very low bitterness. The finish is lengthy, sweet, then bitter and warming. Kudos to darkguardian for sharing the bottle!

yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
33 cL bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma is dark fruity and roasted malty. Sweet malty and light alcohol presence with a nice bitterness and dry hoppy note. Bitter and crisp finish. Boozy. The hops rescues it.

madsberg (9651) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Bottled. Dark brown with a distinct red gleam. Dense light brown head. Aroma of grass, roast, sweetness, alcohol, syrup. Flavour of alcohol. molassses, syrup, grass, brown sugar, light roast. Medium bodied. Alcoholdense syrupy end. A bit unrefined and way too much for me.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Botle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma has intense dried fruits and quite some alcohol. Medium body, slightly fusty, a little hard roasted malt and dried fruit. Very very boozy and not overly pleasant or sophistcated. 080210

Defreni (2327) - Husum, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2010
Fad: Kulsort øl med et meget lille skumhoved. Fin karbonering i forhold til de høje procenter, men øllen er simpelthen for brændvarm til rigtig at kunne nydes. Men respekt for at flytte grænser skal der dog komme herfra.

thewolf (10784) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours utterly, completely black with a fine, medium, creamy, staying head. Aroma does not have as much viniousness as I’d expected. Milky chocolate, light woody, some liqourice and sweet malts. There is an ounce of fruity hops in there as well. Medium carbonation, oily and a tad harsh mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, sugary, some roasted malts, milky chocolate, some harshish alcohol. There is a bit of woody bitterness at the end, some light hops. It is probably too sweet and there is too much alcohol, but it still is fairly drinkable. Compared to for example Mikkeller X series or WWS, this is far better.

pilsnerrogge (2414) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2010
Bottled:
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a small head. Dry, woody aroma with notes of liquorice and a little bit of smoke. Medium body. Sweetish, malty flavour with notes of liquorice. Long alcohol bitter finish; in fact this one was quite boozier than the Nuclear Penguin.

beerguy101 (5267) - Newark, California, USA - APR 10, 2010
Sampled on 2/8/2010. This imperial Stout pours a dark brown color from the bottle. Small sized beige foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, brown sugar, molasses and coffee. A medium to full bodied Imperial Stout. The malts are caramel, chocolate and sweet. The hops are herbal. Alcohol is evident, but does not detract from the flavor, but doesn’t add much either. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet with is offset by some alcohol hotness.
