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

Snifter at Monk’s Kettle on 8/9/10. Pours hazy dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma is of booze, chocolate and apples. Flavor starts with sweet caramel and moves to chocolate and apple before a boozy finish.

kbutler1 (1382) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark black color with a nice tan coaster head. Bad ass aroma of oak mixed with with cranberry fruit with super dark chocolate. Slight burn of alcohol at the end of the smell. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet taste along with roasted notes and fruit. This is like nothing I have had before. Very tasty. Get raisin type molasses flavor from this. Surprisingly very little alcohol flavors that I pick up. Overall a pretty cool beer but hard to drink a lot of it.

gorditoabd (637) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours jet black with about 1 finger of tan foam. Aroma is very faint, almost nothing there, though a boozy burn can be detected. Flavor is HOT. Anise, cinnamon, fruit (cranberries), and nectar are all present in the first sip. Boy, is the ABV obvious on this one. This make worldwide stout seem understated. Still, a pleasantly warm sipper. Body is reasonably complex, in spite of the strong alcohol presence, and the bevy of flavors that come through, including a good bit of nice woody oak from the barrell, are all to be applauded and appreciated. Man, this would be perfect for winter time. Interesting and unique. High style points.

Gmoney (465) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 6, 2010
tap @ the Alehouse.. Black pour ,wispy off white head , sparse lacing . Aroma is sweet (alcohol ) and some roasted malts . Flavor is sweet malt and alcohol, (hard to hide 18.2 ) touch of bitterness and alcohol burn in the finish . Thin bodied , almost flat and slightly hot . Extreme yes , exceptional no .

PaulsPissed (37) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 5, 2010
Pours black, I dont know how anyone could say it pours amber or dark brown it defiantly pours black. If you thin it out it might be brown but looking at it in my glass it is a black beer! Smells of chocolate and sugars, maybe a bit of coffee. Taste is smooth for the percent. A bit sticky. Long lingering aftertaste and a bit of burning in your stomache. I had to use a wine cooler to keep this beer cold as I drank it I could not enjoy this warm. A nice and very interesting beer.

Doodler (473) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2010
12 oz bottle picked up today in Boulder. Pours a dark amber with thin tan head. Has a nose of roasted malt and figs with a hint of licorice. Up front has flavors of dark fruit, vanilla and caramel. Finishes with an oak and boozy burnt malt finish. Somewhat hot and slightly sticky, but it is a big beer. As such, nicely done for such a big ABV (18%?) A tastee sipper fo sho....
