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

Aroma is dark, burbon, roasted and soya. Taste is burnt boozy, roasted malts and long aftertaste of warming booze.

Super rich aroma. Pitch black colour and brown head. Complex taste that overwhelms your taste buds. Excellent. The only bad thing is that it is difficult to take more than 2 dl. I shared 2,5 dl glass from a tap in Kaisla and I was satisfied. Oak chips and cranberry

Benzai (15012) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2011
Bottle at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Bottle said: Batch 4, aged on French toasted Oak chips. Dark brown color with a barely visible red glow coming through. Smell alcohol, roasted coffee, wood. Firm heavy taste at first, mostly roastyness and alcohol hitting me, but a soft warming finish of vanilla, warming alcohol and wood. Nice.

mR_fr0g (10848) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2011
Dark chocolate brown with a short lived tan head. Intense aromas of oak honey and treacle and a hint of boozy alcohol. Flavours are in your face toffe burnt caramel and oak. The palete on this beer is amazing. REally smooth and slick evaporates of the tongue effortlessly. Nice one to sip while watching a movie. Take your time with this one.

Before I write this review, Id just like to mention that the lovely lady at the supermarket who sold me this couldnt be bothered to find out the actual price of the bottle when the barcode wouldnt scan. She charged me NZ$2, actual price turned out to be $28. Win for Jim. Black with port, rosy notes and a caramel coloured head. I stuck my nose over the glass and picked up Christmas cake, mature fortified wine, fresh spices, cinnamon and caramel. Prickly and then a full-on blast of spice and thick syrup, molasses which settles into a lustrous tasty cakiness. It is full, rich and generous. Although the bitterness is listed as being fairly high, it isnt tear your head off strong. The finish is long lasting and when you burp it brings back a pleasant flush of allspice, cloves, port and other flavours too numerous to mention. I doubt whether I have given too many 10s for flavour (aroma certainly), but this is thoroughly deserving. This is an epic beer. It shows what beer can be and for that, I love it.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle for Meadows Wine. Pours a jet black colour with a thin tan head that looks red in the right light. This is just too sweet for me but it works as a desert beer. Aroma is sweet with plums, rum truffles and treacle notes. Just a hint of diacetyl. Alcohol is fairly present with flavours of plums, raisins, candy sugar and a biting bitterness at the back. Little oily mouth-feel. Long alcohol hum. Overall a very nice beer but just too sweet for me.

Bottle at home. Smells of dark fruit and coffee, very little head. Tastes good enough but the alcohol burn made me reach for the pepto about 5 sips into the drink. It would be better if it was more drinkable. When I pay $12 for a beer I would like to be able to get through it without forcing myself.
