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.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Notes from old backlog: Very deep brown pour with a ruby hue- surprisingly decent head retention for the ABV. There’s a sticky thin tna lace left on the glass. Sweet aroma of raisin/date paste, maltose, maple like and solventy with some fusels noted. Cough medicine texture. Goes down slow and hot. Under attenuated, huge and maple like, nondescript booze, and excessive maltose. One dimensional and pretty much undrinkable. Not a fan of Brew Dog.

maxwelldeux (4033) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate light brown head on there. Nose has some heavy roasting to it as well as some dark fruits and dark chocolate. Taste is super rich and chocolatey with a lot of roasting and a slightly sweet finish. Really nice...

nihtila (1158) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
19.7.2014. Aroma of roast, sweet oaky vanilla. Taste is very intense, roast, coffee, oaky vanilla. Very good but less abv would be enough. Its also quite sweet.

Gran birra, intensa e ammaliante. Piacevole e di ottima beva nonostante l’elevato grado alcolico

Douberd (2902) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2015
(BrewDog Tokyo*) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 16.5% Pitch black colour on the body, a small line of dark brown head on top, fizzy with low retention, leaving no lacing behind. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, alcohol, great fruity notes. Great taste, wow! Again fruity notes, vanilla, wood, alcohol, roasted malts, liquorice coal, blackberries, chocolate cake, light grass and even some hops, moderate sweet all in all but no cloying. Medium thick body, carbonation higher than I expected but on good levels, very sticky on the palate. Very nice and dangerous, I don’t dare finishing the bottle tonight.

CraftyBeerTour (102) - Barcelon, SPAIN - MAR 3, 2015
Rich, ripe banana, liquorice, marzipan plus aroma. Black, viscous. Thin coffee cream-colored head. Smooth and petroly in the mouth. Warms. Juices up with rum-soaked raisins. A beaut.

alkolas510 (801) - SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Kolsvart tjock med mellanstort ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar mjölkchoklad och lite kaffe. Jätte söt och tror inte att den kan vara 16.5%?

MrBlueSky93 (275) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from Brewdog. Pours black with a single finger tan head. Aroma of Chocolate, cream, coffee, dark fruits, winter berries, roasted malts. Tastes much the same, with a bit of alcohol-you don’t notice too much of a burn of the throat, nice.

Espectacular Imperial Stout envellida amb chips de roure francès, Molt bon exemple d’una oxidació ben conduïda.
