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.

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

D’un coté, c’est le genre de bières qui te donne envie d’une pilsener et de l’autre c’est un univers unique et tellement intense. Dans tous les cas, une expérience.

Shanshirohop (86) - Zaragoza, SPAIN - FEB 12, 2016
Una señora cerveza con un aroma muy especial a diferentes especias y toques herbáceos que se mantienen en el trago... su apariencia es petróleo puro y a pesar de tener casi 17 grados de alcohol está equilibrada y deja un sabor que permanece.

Seffle (421) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle from SB, drunk 160206. Batch 174. ABV 16.5! Mahoganny body with a rather weak disappering brown head. Incredibly full aroma with dried fruits, port, brandy, treacle. The palate is enormous with dried prunes, coffee, liquorice, black molasses ... Of course very alcohol sweet but balanced, even though. Why did I buy just this one bottle�� ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wrlangin (108) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2016
12 ounce bottle bought from specs in Houston. Drink at home in July 2015. The underlying stout was well balanced between toasted mall coffee and chocolate in the barrel aging was a perfect complement to the underlying stout. This beer was very enjoyable and I would absolutely recommend it to others. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VT (2233) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 14, 2015
330 ml bottle shared with czar and company. Pours black. Aroma is chocolate, alcohol, fruits and wood. Flavor is chocolate, cranberry, fruits, coffee, figs, hazelnut. Finish is loads of fruits, spices. Mostly raisins. Lingering brown sugar, burnt sugar. Thick body, oily, velvety mouthfeel and weak carbonation. Very solid.

Taste: Big, bold, thick, boozy, oakey, cranberries, herbal, molasses malty. Black/Brown and opaque. Big woody alcohol nose. heavy body with a dark tan, head with small lace. Warming and as intense as they come.

chinchill (3887) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 8, 2015
12 oz bottle. Dark red brown with a minimal head (but from a gentle pour). Rich sweet, inviting aroma. Overly sweet flavor up front but good balance eventually appears, and the late aftertaste is mildly bitter. Good complexity.

jspronck (155) - BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2015
Dark brown color with beige head, aromas of fruit (cherries, raisins, grapes and berries) and toasted malts (coffee). Full-bodied, thick texture. In mouth, feels like mollasses and fruit. Can feel the ABV (16.5% on the bottle) but not overwhelming. Very sweet with a long dry and bitter coffee finish. Beautiful complexity. I remember thinking that this was close to a fortified wine. Very interesting.

Luvystypotables (1461) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Aroma of malt and whiskey, with a hint of caramel. Pours a dark black with a short lasting tan head. Taste of malt, caramel and pepper with a sweet whiskey finish. Thick full bodied feel.

maxbol77 (13) - SLOVENIA - JUN 1, 2015
Dark almost black with thin beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, some sweet-sour fruitiness, nicely hopped, oaky, smoked. Sweet with tones of sourness with bitter dry finish. Complex and interesting beer, very tasty.
