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

Spab (3628) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
330 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours an opaque, oily looking ultra dark brown verging on black with a modest-sized light brown head. Aroma is raisin, plums, treacle, light woodiness and alcohol. Taste is very sweet with ripe dark fruits, molasses, licorice, wood and alcohol. Big body, creamy/sticky mouthfeel. Quite nice but one to have in small quantities.

maley1 (1232) - Calgary, CANADA - DEC 4, 2011
Dark brown, almost black with small beige head. Aroma is molasses, caramel, sweet chocolate, ripe fruits and leather. Taste is prunes, caramel, molasses, sweetened chocolate, ripe cherries and licorice. Soft carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Hoppy finish overpowered by the sweetness. Very enjoyable!

ljay6880 (475) - , Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2011
12 oz (approx) bottle served in a tulip. Pour is cola with 2 fingers of kaki head that left a decent lace. Nose is plums, oak, roasted malt, caramel, dates, and light chocolate. Taste is spot on, with the plums, chocolate, and booze lingering in a warming fashion. This is a huge beer, and quite drinkable! It does, however, have a brandy like warming effect that goes the distance ... Best served on a cold evening!

CapFlu (5115) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2011
(330ml bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquor in Victoria for a totally unreasonable $19. All I can say is this did not live up to the hype. It wasnt even terribly complex or a renaissance beer IMHO. Our local Driftwood Brewings Singularity shows more potential and is twice the volume for only 2/3 the price, 650ml for $12. Disappointed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gramity (1625) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2011
Pours pitch dark black with a small off white head. Intense aroma of alcohol, whiskey, dark chocolate and smoke. Great palate that isnt punishing at all, despite its alcohol. Sweet taste of rasted malts, caramel, dried fruits and a quite alcoholic finish.

rodenbach99 (4450) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2011
Bouteille de 330ml. Bire brune fonce avec une mousse brune qui dune surprenante faon est durable. Nez puissant, dalcool, cerises, bois, vanille, gteau au rhum, complexe. La texture est huileuse, ronde, chaude. La bire offre une chaleur ingale, sucre mais tout de mme buvable. Surprenante avec des frissons garanties.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2011
Black colour with a large frothy tan head. Roasted malt, coffee and vinegar aroma. Danger danger high voltage! Shock to the taste buds on the first sip. Made my hair stand on end. Extremely rich malt, molasses, brown sugar sweetness which pierces every taste bud in your mouth. Im enjoying this beers huge balls and originality. Sugar in glass and worth the experience.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 28, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a tan head. Smells of sweet dried berries, caramel and some smoke. Tastes cloyingly sweet, with roasted coffee, cranberries, and alcohol. Full-bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation, finishes dry with a warming alcohol. This one packs quite a punch.

MotherBrother (939) - Aalborg, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2011
Pour dark opaque, with a Big off-white head. Aroma is heavy of coffee, burned malts and licorice. Full fat body. I mean obese. But i like it. Of course, theres a lot of heat, which means, this beer lasts for a long time, so plenty of beer for the buck. Did i mention, that this beer is heavy?

tmongoose (2378) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 25, 2011
on draft in a small pour, almost pitch black with no head and leaves an almost oily lacing. aroma is of light coffee and chocolate and big amounts of black licorice and alchol hence the 18.2%...the flavor is of big black licorice and alcholo and those same undertones of coffee and chocolate. small taster is better. this as it set gets almost sticky sweet with that burn.
