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 beer, filmy head. Smells of licorice, malt, bitter coffee and fruit. Taste has all of that too. A tangy-sweet fruit hit with bitter cocoa first, earthy malt, hop, fruit, I think you get some of the woodiness in the flavour and definitely in the airy, slightly smokey aftertaste. Surprisingly and dangerously mellow after that first hit. Theres an almost whisky-esque quality to the aftertaste.

Keg tap at BrewDog Shepherds Bush. Black and opaque with a ring of brown head. Fudge, Marmite, OXO cubes in the aroma. Having said that, the taste is surprisingly sweet. Hints of vanilla and liquorice abound. Long intense gum-numbing finish with bittering hop balancing in the background. Believe the hype. This is intense and approachable.

Bottle @cgarvieuk. April Not So Fools Tasting 2014 [Rating Backlog April 2014] Pours black with a tan head. Nose and taste is along the same lines, licorice, plums, chocolate, raisins, slight coffee, this has oxidised a wee touch but still very good.

CyborgX (72) - THAILAND - OCT 25, 2016
Bottle - Aroma is sweet malts and a little smokey. Taste is very sweet but counterbalanced with bitterness, which keeps you thinking with every sip "is this sweet or bittersweet? And Sip it you must to savour the plethora of flavours squeezed into every mouthful. So many its hard to guess, chocolate? Dark fruits? Faint coffee? Lumps of smoked wood? LOL. It masks the mind numbing 16.5% alcohol, and leaves a very slight bitter end as the rest of the flavours bounce around your tongue and slowly fade on the palette. I was worried it was going to be dissapointing for the high price.... TRUST ME IT ISN'T! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours black with a ruby hue rim and a thin brown foam that resides in a ring. Scent is hickory smoke. Vanilla. Maybe oak wood. Light resin. Light caramel. Taste is hickory, vanilla, dense resin, and dense cranberries. Smokey wood finish. Flavors of cherries. Some sour notes. Mouthfeel is outrageously smooth. Fantastic. Shoutout to @AshtonMcCobb at Appellation Wines - cheers to my third perfect score.
