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.

Christian (11052) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2010 Very dark brown with a lasting off-white head. Aroma mostly of chocolate with dried fruit and licorice and loads of alcohol. Very sweet chocolate and licorice flavour, and a sugary sweetness. Warming alcohol. Too much.

ekstedt (5391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2009
From a bottle at SB&WF. Dark bown, tiny beige head. Sugary and caramelly, slighty roasted aroma, with some vanilla and oak notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Fairly dry, surprisingly so, with a mild bitterness.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Draft at Hamiltons: pours dark with thin tan head. Sweet cookie dough nose with molassis. Super sweet molassis, cookie, vanilla, and boozy apricot flavors. Severly sweet...somewhat syrupy though could be worse...too sweet to fully enjoy much of it. Alcohol is well hidden underneath the sweetness and is warming but not hot.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2009
Bottle @ pre-GBBF shindig, August 2009. Sweet and (not surprisingly) rather boozy. Lots of raisiny fruit and truffle-y chocolate. Also the trademark Brewdog vanilla. Good body. For me at least, needs some time to settle down, marry the flavours and mellow out. Promising but not yet fully developed.

Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Bottled. A deep red beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, malt, caramel, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, roasted malt, alcohol, and caramel, leading to a burning alcoholic finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

marcus (6418) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Pours dark brown with no head and a strong alcohol aroma. The flavor is initially sweet dark malt, but soon turns to alcohol heat. An interesting brew that tastes better than expected for this style, but a few sips is enough.

Lubiere (9865) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2010
A deep dark stout with a super thick moka head. In aroma, bready chocolate, fruity esters, spices and that 18% alcohol. In mouth, a whallop of alcohopl attacks you, followed by sweet chocolate, dark fruits, caramel, hops, wow, its so intense and overwhelming, its unsettling. Not 100% sure if I like it...On tap at ChurchKey DC, Feb. 26 2010.

Embrouille (2825) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 20, 2010
Bottled 33cl. Ordered from www.bierzwerg.de. Nutmeg, banana, a lot of jasmine, oak and strawberries throughout. Acetone sneaking in. Very sweet, full bodied and sticky. Roasted malt is really subdued and so is the alcohol. Interesting.

tastybeer (1703) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2010
Draft. Pours black with a small tan head and no lacing. Aroma is whiskey, nothing but alcohol. Flavor is lots of alcohol but it is hidden surprisingly well with vanilla, sugar sweetness, some caramel/chocolate/resin notes. Surprisingly complex beer but the alcohol really kills a lot of the complexity.

faroeviking (10291) - FAROE ISLANDS - APR 17, 2010
Fløska. Deep dark brown colour. Medium brownish head. Sweet aroma of dark fruits and roasty malt with lots of alcohol indeed. Stickish mouthfeel. Sweet flavour of dark fruits and roasted caramel with alcohol and chocolate, bitter sweet roasty finish. Rather unbalanced, the alcohol is too dominating. Alco Imperial Stout.
