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

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - MAR 1, 2012
Pours dark brown with almost no head. First impression: raisins, rhum, barley syrup. Huge! Berries and roasted malt in mouth, very complex. Very sweet first then like a porto wine: fruity, structured and alcoholic. Alcohol heat comes in aftertaste! Big stout for connoisseurs? I would say for anybody wants a huge experience. Enjoy This stout is big, complex and strong (obviously). The scent is pure chocolate, raisins, coffee and alcohol. While the alcohol is well-hidden, lots of rich malts and craisins make for a solid undertone. Overtones of chocolate covered cranberries and light, woody notes create a fairly complex balance. Finishes with a hint of vanilla and a very pleasant warmth. For 18% abv this brew hardly shows it at all.

One of my favorite beers. Acquired a taste for it when Sergios in Louisville had it on draft.

jookos (6224) - FINLAND - FEB 25, 2012
Batch 010, BBE 2021/4/4. Pitch black, smallish light brown head. The first thing that hits the nose is (unfortunately) oak, dry wood, but after that a full bouquet of dark, intensive, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee beans. But it remains quite dry still and a bit unorganized (needs aging). The taste is awesome; thick, some molasses, a slight touch of oak, but not overpowering. Really intensive and (best of all) quite sweet which harmonizes all the flavours. A really enjoyable beer, but would need to stand for a while still.

Strong taste of alcohol, coffee, chocolate, very sweet with a lingering aftertaste. Cant say I can taste the hops a lot, the sweetness is so prevailing. Actually tastes and feels a lot more like port than beer

neckbracesub (31) - Anderson, Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2012 An outstanding stout. One of the most superior beers I have ever tasted. It is certainly not a beer for everyone, especially at this second batches 18% ABV, but I think any true connoisseur should find it INCREDIBLE. It?s like a fine dessert.

Dr_Butty (87) - SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2012
A bottle of beer that costs more than a typical bottle of wine and has the same alcohol as a fortified wine. A risk (it could be filth), but have been meaning to try this for a while. Pours thick and black, helps if you slap the bottom of the bottle to get the last out. Massive roasted aroma with chocolate, maybe a bit of liquorice as well. Really big flavours, all the usual roasted chocolate, coffee and liquorice youd expect, but also fruit like raisins and maybe cherries. Sweetness balanced perfectly by bitterness. Long, complex finish which lasts for ages. One to sip and savour and shockingly drinkable for a beer of ludicrous strength. Could be a good alternative as an after dinner drink.

phaleslu (9920) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2012
330 ml bottle via trade. Batch 002. Best by 14/12/19. Whew, had it just in the nick of time. Pours a dark amber-hued brown with a small tan head. Aroma of dark fruits (cranberry especially), earth, charred oak, spices (must be the jasmine, though that one is hard to pick out alone), and warming booze. Flavor of woody booze, jasmine, cranberry, brown sugar, caramel malts, tobacco, earth, and deep roast. Medium-full bodied, with a warming, roasty, boozy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Pretty neat imperial stout.

Bygers (1174) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2012
02/02/2012 Bought at Camperdown Cellars in Sydney. 25 AUD. Pours opaque with a thin off white foam. Aroma is whiskey, raisin, oak, vanilla, and coffee. Heavy mouthfeel with taste of medicine, oak, cranberries, dates, prune, brown sugar and vanilla. Excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
