COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Please note this is the second batch of Tokyo, which is different to the 12.5% first batch.


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

Pours black with a thin off white foam. Aroma is soaked with bourbon, oak, vanilla, and alcohol. Big mouthfeel with powerful fruit and toasted flavors. Oak, vanilla, and condensed caramel linger on the tongue. Sweet finish and alcohol dryness. Excellent beer.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 HAD THIS AGAIN IN 2014, THIS IS TERRIBLE DO NOT DRINK IT! "Purchased for $11.99 at State Line in Elkton MD. This is Batch 07, Best by 1-15-2021. I poured this into a shot glass and sipped. No snifter was around. A - Deep brown, TONS of amber on the edges but no head. The alcohol fingers reside on the edges of the glass for a while. S - Cranberries, juniper, pine, figs and grapes T - Vanilla, lots of heat, citrus and pineapple! M - HUGE mouthfeel. Mild carbonation and an intense lingering. O - AMAZING. The price is right for an 18% beer. I love this beer and have 4 at the house just sitting around for another 10 years. Too bad this is retired. Its a fantastic brew."

Hats off to Brewdog for producing such uniqueness. Flavours of alcohol and dry fruits with notes of plum and wood. Definitely worth the try.

Bottle (shared with friends!) Incredible alcohol aroma, definite medicinal aroma. Very tasty (in small doses).

Ok- so I had this after the Stone 15th on draft... Thought with the 18% that it wouldve been stronger tasting. Surprisingly it doesnt taste very strong at all. Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Slight burnt toasty flavor. Good, but could be more thick if ya ask me ;-)

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Pours dark brown-black with a thin dark tan head. Aroma is big, boozy, oak, chocolate, vanilla, alcohol, some dark fruit. Taste is sweet, vanilla, roasty, chocolate, dark fruits and berries, nice coffee finish; very strong and boozy, clears the sinuses. HOWEVER, its very tasty and drinkable. For those capable of chewing this beer, the mouth feel is pleasantly surprising. Im shocked at how tasty and drinkable this is considering the strength. Id be very interested in finding out how many of these I could handle.

shoulderbroken (4162) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 15, 2012
Keg at Brewdog Camden. Dark brown with tiny golden head. Aroma is vanilla, lots of booze, bit of dark chocolate and a bit of coffee. Taste is very roasty, chocolate, sweet and boozy but surprisingly drinkable. Ends with a spirit burn in the mouth with lots of roastiness. This was really nice, but a third of a pint of it really messed me up. I am scared to have it again.
