This imperial stout is brewed with copious amounts of specialty malts, jasmine and cranberries. After fermentation we then dry hopped it with a bucketload of our favourite hops before carefully aging the beer on French toasted oak chips.

330 mL bottle courtesy of Chris served in a stem glass alongside Black Tokyo Horizon and its other constituent beers. Pours black with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a trace amount of fine lace. The nose has big, syrupy molasses with alcohol, herbs, a touch of anise and some hops. The flavour is huge sweet brown sugar and honey with cranberry, a touch of oak and some herbs. The finish is long, hugely sweet with a touch of pepper. On the palate, it is full in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a great herbal-spicy-roasty imperial stout. It is very smooth and well constructed, but a bit too sweet for my taste. 2013-01-25

Vells (921) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 28, 2013
Dark ruby red, almost black with thin beige head. Aroma.. loads of roasted malts, coffee, some sweet-sour fruitiness, nicely hopped, warming alcohol, oaky, bit smoked. Sweet with tones of sourness with bitter dry finish. Complex and interesting brew, but most important - very tasty.

Thisis12ptfont (967) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Tokyo brings a massive wooded/oak aroma to the nose. It is black with a brown tint and a subtle rim of foam. The taste is massively complex with a strong caramelized sugar overtone. There are tons of complex flavors including oak, maple, burnt caramel, rasperry and belgian candi sugar. Overall, this beer is unbelievably complex, I can’t even put my finger on all the flavors. It is very sugary and caramelized, and you would never imagine there is 18% alcohol. This is a delicious beer boasting tons of sweet flavors. I’d give this an A+ rating.

Bottle at Home. Dark black, poor head. Very malty and complex, sweet a bit honey. Taste of jasmin and oystersauce:) Could have been hopped à bit more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (3288) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2012
Fra flaske på cardinaltreff april-11:Litt ubehagelig aroma av tobakk i tillegg til bær, vanilje/eik. Mørkebrunt, kort skum. Meget søtt og med stor munnfylde. Mindre bittert enn tørrhumlingen kanskje skulle tilsi.

Excelente cerveza con un aroma impresionante, ideal para dejar envejecer mucho mucho tiempo
