Smoky, boozed up fruitcake. Still not sure if I liked it or not, but I did drain it. Tart fruit notes, not sure about the jasmine, but there werea different spiciness floating about. The 18% is a bit offputting, but the beer wins out with the roasted tarty complex mouthfeel. Maybe too much going on. Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2011
Black colour and tan head having a real thick viscosity to it. Aromas of chocolate whiskey cake, strong aroma, prunes, sweetness, tobaccoo and some fruity note as well. It is super sweet brew having flavours of fruit cake, cranberry and cherry. not my style of beer but i respect the brew.

(11.2oz bottle). Pours dark brown with red hue and thin khaki head. Aroma has medicine and band-aids. Taste is sweet with some tart fruit and some smoke. Roasty bitterness. Full bodied with sticky texture. Hot, but smooth finish. Good stuff. Muche better than the aroma. daknole (11047) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Dark brown pour, tan head. Big ass boozy aroma, molasses, prunes, raisins. Flavor is sweet, very sweet. Liquid prunes, raisins, and light smoke. Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
330ml bottle. Dark cola pour with minimal tan head and little to no lace. Chocolate and whiskey dominate the nose with some dark fruit and a grainy quality. Viscous on the palate with chocolate, fruit and coffee. Quite sweet. Finishes with a warming cough syrup feel. I’m still not sure if I liked this or not.

Bottle. I think there is a thing as too complex. Or trying to do too much with a beer. And getting the blend messed up, and that’s what I feel happened with Tokyo.
Black pour with aromas of dark fruit (Raisons, oak and berry)
Taste is an over bearing berry and jasmine. Some raison, spice, wood, licorice, earth, bourbon and toast.
I normally like Brew dog and I love big beers, but they jus didn’ think this one trough. I was dissapointed.

12 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours dark brown in color with a small, fine ecru colored head. The aroma has dark fruits, molasses, chocolate, some spices and big alcohol heat. The flavor has the alcohol heat, but ai find that theres much more to it than alcohol. Dark fruits, molasses, caramelized malts, raisins and some woody notes. As this warms, some chocolate comes through too. I ended up enjoying this more than I thought i would. jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Pours a three finger brown head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Good carbonation and heavy bodied. Black color, no highlights, some yeast left in bottle. Dark fruit, alcohol nose and flavor is molasses, dark fruit and alcohol. Nice IS. Best by Dec 2019, couldn’t wait! Expensive at $13.95 for a 330ml bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

Poured deep ruby-brown, and a small beige, lacing head. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, whiskey, figs, plums, red grapes. Medium dense, with low carbonation, very oily body. For the percentage this beer has, the taste of alcohol is well hidden. Overall an excellent beer. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 21, 2011

Black as hell with some lurking ruby tones, small lacing beige head alcoholic, fruity nose with a tone of plum, spicies and rum, green leaves, cherries and berries...Some wood on the tongue, easier texture than expected. Complex, superb, dangerous.
