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

From draft. What I smell and see is a black beer with a thick brown head, smells like a lot of unfermented malts. Then I take a sip and its nothing but sweetness all the way through. Sticky, cloying sweetness that coats my mouth and throat and makes me shiver a little in disgust. I have to be honest, I did not enjoy this. Any notion of balance was thrown out the window. It took me a while to sip down the 10oz glass. Afterwards I felt full in the stomach and like I was getting diabetes.

Bottle 33 cl. A clear dark brown colour with a medium high, off-white head. An aroma of malt, caramel, chocolate, smoke and alcohol. The taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter. A full body, oily texture, soft carbonation and a medium long finish.

SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2011
(33 cl, batch 010) The look : Deep brown stout with a small head that disappears quickly. Traces of foam stick to the glass. The nose: Boe mj, boe mj... Plums and prunes, dark fruits, old woody notes, port wine qualities, chocolate and thundering notes of molasses. The taste: Intense dark fruitiness, raisins and plums, polish delight, port wine notes, molasses and dark chocolate. The palate: Medium to almost full body with a comfy carbonation. The texture is on the oily side. The finale: Port wine finish with a super hot kick from the alcohol.

jvhemert (397) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 9, 2011
AROMA: chocolate, fruits, overpowering alcohol, hints of port (cask), licorice aftertaste APPEARANCE: dark brown/black TASTE: lightly sour, lightly bitter, light sweetness, very dry PALATE: medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, long finish OVERALL: surprisingly palatable for >18% alcohol, but not enough of the depth and smoothness of a good port to warrant the alcohol.

cryptobard (281) - DENMARK - OCT 9, 2011
From the bottle. Poured black, motor oil. Slight, residual head. Overpowering aroma of chocolate, dark fruit, and alcohol. Oddly enough, I liked it, despite how... chemical, for lack of better word, it was. Taste had quite some depth, masking the alcohol outside of its warmth. Rather sweet. And, heres a protip: have this one when youre fresh, i.e. not after having 5 other beers in the afternoon.

Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2011
Dark brown of color with a beige head. An aroma of cemicals, sweets, dark fruits, spice and port. A flavor of liqurice, alcohol, spice and sweets.

mickmac (485) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle. Small tan head over a black body. Massive aroma:taste of alcohol, chocolate, molasses and raisins. Full bodied. The alcohol is just so dominant that it detracts from the beer.

garza (573) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - SEP 25, 2011
Pours drak brown with creamy espresso like head. Roasted barley on the nose, strong floral perfume like with booze in the aroma. Very complex flavour, heavy cloying sweetness, liquor like taste with hints of raisins, moscato wine and some burnt caramel. full body, oily feel, soft carbonation and a very long lasting sweet and liquor like after taste. Quite an experience!

dwyerpg (6062) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 21, 2011
An intensely sweet sugar aroma. Very strong. Looks great. First sip is very sweet and very rich. The finish isnt as heavy though, which is nice. While knowing its strong, this is smoother to drink than Goose Islands behemoth stout. Too bad this is so pricy. Definitely could age for awhile too.

beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Bottle pours black with a tan/brown head. Scent is booze, wet wood, soy and roasted malt. Taste is booze, dark fruit, tart and lightly sweet.
