The constant, unrelenting noise becomes something purer than sound – reverberating through every part of you as the eyes rush to take in the pixelated arcade action. It’s all-pervading. Small silver coins are your life-blood, Player 1.
Our most involved beer, Tokyo* is an Imperial Stout brewed with copious amounts of speciality malts, jasmine and cranberries, dry-hopped with a bucket-load of our favourite hops and then carefully aged on toasted French oak chips.
It’s all about moderation. Everything in moderation, Player 1. What logically follows is that you must from time to time, have excess. This beer is for those times.

yespr (40833) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours pitch black with a small chocolate brown head. Aroma is initially fruity from the hops but also followed closely by a more roasted yet smooth malt note and light chocolate. Light to medium bodied - not as thick as expected. Fruity and medium sweet initial flavour followed by a complex mix of roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla. Reappearing fruity and hopp notes into a smooth finish with a little spice note. Very elegant and a different take on the oaked beer trends. Nice one.

Ungstrup (34658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin dark brown head. The aroma has strong notes of roasted malt and soy sauce as well as some notes of alcohol and wood. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of roasted malt and alcohol as well as notes of soy sauce and wood, leading to a dry alcoholic and roasted finish. The alcohol tickles the tongue.

madmitch76 (22315) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2010
5th October 2008. Dark black stout with no head. Very little carbonation. Full bodied dark and toasty stout beautifully offset by an undercurrent of sweet cranberry. The roasty finish is again wonderfully offset by some floral sweetness. Just a hint of smoke creeping in at the end.

Black color; almost still, just a small frothy head by pouring it from high. Intense aroma, of cookies and chocolate; later, some leather too. Ful body strength, it has undoubtly a good mix of caramel, malt and chocolate, with the sugar sticking on the lips; in the beginning there is an amount of liquorice, that fades away to reappear much later; some leather. Hidden by the generous amount of malts, there is a good hopping; the final has some roasted nuts too, and overall manages to hide well the alcohol. Strangely, I prefer it in the beginning than after some time resting in the glass (1 hour). Very good.
