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

SlovakSniper (5527) - 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 (484) - 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 (6027) - 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.

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.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 11, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours black with some amber in the corners and a quick beige head. The aroma is chocolate, Robitussin, and prunes with some slight smoke, ash, vanilla, whisky, and gin. The flavor is better than I expected given the ridiculous alcohol content. Dark chocolate and prune come first, with a little bit of roastiness (though not much). Then comes a weird fruity gin note, some vanilla, and a building warmth. That warmth builds to a burn in the finish after just a few sips. Then comes cola and a distinct charred oak barrel note. The oak lingers forever in the aftertaste, as does the alcohol burn, making it feel kinda like I chugged some cheap bourbon. Not bad for an absurdity-based beer, I guess. But I would trade about 10% worth of the alcohol for some stronger roasted character and malty richness.

330 ml. bottle. Batch 007. BBD 1/15/21. Pours a thin mocha head over a reddish bllack (SRM 35) body....nose is dried fruits including cherry, raisin, fig, with lighter coffee, chocolate, beef, soy, Bovril.....taste is heavily sweet, with multiple fruits including cherry, raisin, fig, with light coffee, chocolate, finishing with a lingering sweetness....mouth feel thick and sticky, alcohol heat obvious, carbonation low. This is heavily sweet, almost vinous in character, with many tones reminiscent of port. The sweetness is overly dominant and hides some of the depth of flavors that should be there. This particular bottle falls more in the camp of a Dark Belgian Strong than an Imperial Stout. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7
