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.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2010 Poured from bottle for my 100th review on Ratebeer, on my 42nd birthday. Wow, what a nose -- dark fruit, molasses, bread dough -- it almost smells like a dark rum. Color is an incredibly opaque dark brown; I couldnít see anything through it, even held up an inch away from a strong fluorescent desk lamp. Head is pronounced and long-lasting with considerable lace. The flavor -- wow. Sweet and dark, like heavily sugared coffee laced with a bit of whisky. I can taste the cranberries, and there is a fleeting moment where the smell/taste of the jasmine flickers across my tongue and is then gone. Finishes dry and hot, but not in an unpleasant way. This is the first beer Iíve had from Brewdog that I thought was worth the hype. Well done.

Thick but short milk chocolate foam. Black brown color. Medium aroma of vanilla, caramell and chocolate. Smooth taste with a dark chocolate bitterness in the end.Only small amounts of burnt malts that make ift more like a porter than a stout. Big residual sweetness and more chocolate.

imdownthepub (11964) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Hotel du Vin, Birmingham. Dark brown with ruby hints, tan head. Initially very winey, with a grape like hit, then supplementary flavours like aniseed, cough medicine and liquorice poke their nose in. Candy like in the middle, then a heavy roasted finish. It plays with the senses certainly, but I wouldnít keep going back to it.

Plovmand (7185) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 13, 2010
Bottle. Very dark brown with a bubbly light tan head. Intense aroma of dark ripe fruit, cocoa, sweet roasted malt and light tobacco. The flavour is heavy sweet roasty with lots of alcohol, sweet tobacco, ripe fruit, chocolate and light spices. It almost burns in your throat. Great decision to finish this bottle all by myself a Tuesday evening.....The finish is sweet alcoholic with dark fruity notes. Very complexs but cloying.

Bottle, received by winning the Brewdog photo competition, thanks again! Deep solid black, small brown head. Aroma of solvent, glue and the like, I almost feel like getting high sniffiní it. Also some fruit, liquorice, prune, band aid, earth and peat. Flavour is very intense, bitter liquorice, alcohol, strong malty sweetness, syrupy thickness with some spices. Alcohol very well hidden, only some warmth in the after taste. Quite nice!

Bottle at Patricks. It pours a clear dark brown, almost black body with a small beige head. The aroma is roasted and quite boozy, with coffee, some dark chocolate and salty licorice, and a good dash of vanilla. A too good dash actually, but itís not really bad. Thereís vanilla in the flavor too, but here the roasted malts are pulling a bigger part of the load. Some notes of dried fruits and licorice, and quite a lot of coffee. Quite low on bitterness. Full-bodied and warming, slightly oily on the palate. The finish is pretty much like the initial flavor, with some roasted malts bitterness. A quite delicious beer that needs some time to finish. 100610

This bottled brew marked BBF 23/3/20 batch 03 from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind opaque black colored body with no visible carbonation and a thick foamy lacing. The strong aroma was of sake like vinous medicinal alcohol, dark malt and licorice. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly stingingly tingly at the finish with a stinging vinous alcohol aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of vinous and alcohol which burns as it goes down. A decent one that I would consider drinking again but definitely not quaffable. As a novelty beer itís great but it is just to vinous and burning to be quaffable. It gave me the beer shivers!

Bottle. Black pour with a short tan head. Nose is boozy and candyish with lots of sweet malt, vanilla, molasses, and alcohol. Taste is big vanilla and molasses with roasted malt, sweet malt, chocolate, ripe fruit and booze. Body is medium with soft carbonation and plenty of warming from the alcohol. Ends with more booze, dark fruit, candyish notes, vanilla, molasses, and light roasted malt. Very much like Dogfish Head World Wide Stout, though itís been a while since I had that beer.
