COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Vells (744) - 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 (863) - 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.

Caramel, Raisin, Chocolate. Strong malt and overpowering sugar and alcohol. Not greatly blended. Overall drinkable despite it’s flaws.

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 (2779) - 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

abergdahl (64) - SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2012
Dark, very little foam or carbonation. Smells rich, musty and sweet, the taste is full and chocolaty at first then comes a sweetness, almost like a sweet strong wine, and then a warmness of alcohol replaces the sweetness in a long and very pleasant after taste. One bottle lasts a long time, will buy it again, Would be great with a glass after a pleasant meal, perhaps with a chocolate dessert... Great beer

Wow this beer packs a punch. Pours a dark roasty black. With very little head. The body seems really thin, but the flavours from the cranberry and alcohol fill your mouth. Exceptional beer.
