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.
Formally 18.2 % ABV

Black body with a very thin beige head. Perfume, fruity and malt. A very complex and indulgent palate that tastes a little like cough syrup! But in a good way! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Almost solid thick beige head stayed impeccably on a black still oil slick of a body. Minimal aroma of dark berries, citrus & spices. Full bodied, greasy & oily on the palate with minimal carbonation & a really smooth feel. Oak, sweet berry, peach, grape, woody, resin tastes with a malt & citrus finish.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2018 Una maravilla, me encantó, sabores muy equilibrados, cremosa de poca retención de espuma, a pesar de esto me parece una cerveza muy cara para lo que es, inentendible precio, dicho esto es una delicia.

Experimental and interesting beer with 16,5% Abv! It pours almost black color with small sized tan head. Average-lasting foam leaves moderate lacing. Smell is boozy, high abv and roastiness dominate the smell. Wood, coffee and chocolate are in background. Taste is overly strong and not easy to drink, but aftertaste is between espresso and bourbon. Extremely full bodied, chewy and heavy on the palate, but there is no harshness. Low carbonation. It's respectable experiment and very difficult to brew.

Apabullante. Densa, compleja, dura y muuuuy rica. Pegajosa. Aroma profundo e interesantísimo. Bravo.

evannell (1720) - Krak�w, POLAND - MAR 4, 2018
W aromacie tony waky, czekolady i lekkiej kwaskowatości w stylu porzeczki czy żurawiny. Jeszcze dość wyczuwalna nuta octu balsamicznego i kilka innych rzeczy, z których wanilia jest tylko jedną, właściwie wcale tak mocno nie wyeksponowaną. W smaku alkohol mocny, ale nie domyśliłbym się aż tylu %. Wychodzą tu żurawiny i inne nuty kwaskowate, jako świetna kontra dla słodyczy. Z tej trzeciej strony mocna, ale nie siekierowata, kawa. Nie rozumiem wszystkiego w tym piwie (nie wyczuwam np. jaśminu), ale jest powalające. Koniecznie trzeba powtórzyć.

Read the description! It's the best advice to understand this beer. It is what an imperial stout is but with extra features! It's a good way to begin a nice evening of beer tasting, but be aware of its alcohol content. Unique taste experience for sure, but not my favorite of stouts. Worth the try!

Bottle: Poured a black brown with tan head. Aroma is sweet malty. Taste is sugary sweet malts.

Fullpintofbeer (540) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2018
Bottle from Brewdog, Bristol. Tiny dark head, black colour. Aroma: dark chocolate, oak, plums, raisins, bit of alcohol. Light sour/tarty taste, with dry/alcohol aftertaste. Full body, soft carbonation. Very good, heavy, but not too strong.

doriangrey (178) - Diamond Creek, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2018
Plums and chocolate, some liquorice, cloves, engine oil and stout. The alcohol is hidden very well though your head feels it after half a bottle. It’s thick and viscous but actually quite easy drinking. Wouldn’t be a favourite imperial stout but respect for making a 16.5% drinkable.
