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

Bottle from bierzwerg.de. Almost black color with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, oak, alcohol. Taste, roasted malt, syrup, caramel, vanilla, wood, dried black fruit, significant amount of coffee, alcohol, oak. Strong coffee bitter finish. Mind blowing beer.

This has to be the most weird yet interesting imperial stout i’ve tasted. The taste of berry in combination with the aroma of jasmine, berry and maybe wine makes comes with a nice body and no head, even though the carbonation appears on the tongue. It all results in an awesome beer directly for what it was meant to be drunk with, space invaders. Ultra recomended when you want to get out of "regular" and go for something that you will remember.

Molt bona Imperial Stout. Intensa, aromàtica, cremosa, llarga. I de les més econòmiques dins del seu estil. Es pot demanar més?

Birra da meditazione pura! Da non bere a pranzo, come ho fatto io nonostante lo sapessi, Ottimo aroma dolciastro, con sentori di mirtilli e altro che non ho saputo decifrare, sapore dolciastro e complesso dove spuntano ancora i mirtilli, un tocco di liquerizia e poco cioccolato + altri sapori per me inconprensibili, complessa è dire poco! Forse troppo etilica ma al tempo stesso beverina! Birra a dir poco misteriosa!

TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 19, 2012
Keg at Brewdog. Blackish Brown with a red hue and a creamy head. Aroma is very sweet and burning of alcohol. Flavour has a lot going on . Really oversweet with a slightly unpleasant mix of sweet acidity and coffee bitterness. Cranberry is a good shout. Tangy with rampant alcohol. Turps. Quite difficult to drink much of but undeniably complex.

Davros (3187) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2012
Pours brown-tinged black with a small, light tan head. Very sweet smelling aroma, with port-like vinuous notes very evident. Also prominent is oak. Some roasted malt is noticeable, along with lots of caramel and prunes. Similarly sweet flavours, again somewhat reminiscent of port. Roasted malt, brown sugar, caramel, prunes. Booze follows, seeming slightly solvent-like. Carbonation, though low, seems too high for this sort of beer. Could do with a little more age.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2016 Re-rate 8/16: Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom L’s place. Thanks Tom L. Dark brown with tiny floaties. Oxidation, chocolate, nuts, some dark fruits, alcohol, some smoke, vinous, sweet, kinda boozy. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4

[5/11/12] Draught sample at Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Black. Aroma of lots of dark chocolate, some whiskey and dark fruits. Very sweet flavor with chocolate, sugar, some whiskey notes, a bit of tobacco notes and lots of alcohol. Full-bodied. 8/4/6/3/12=3.3

GothGargoyle (2587) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Black with a reasonable beige head, leaves good lacing. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, liquorice, toffee, plum, brown sugar. Good body, slightly oily mouthfeel, quite sweet on the palate, warms going down. Taste is toffee, chocolate, brown sugar, raisins, butterscotch, caramel. Delicious, but sip slowly.
