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

Sample at Ale Alpharetta. Pours black, with some ruby hues and a minimal head. The aroma is immense butterscotch and cranberries, with some vanilla and sherry notes. Very, very sweet and boozy. Very heavy body, sticky, and thick. This is a huge, thick, milkshake of a beer. Delicious and unfortunately easy to drink.

The Black tasting hosted by Kraddel 17/10/2017. Bottle from ca. 2013. Aroma is roasted and oaky with some ripe prunes. Raisins and ripe prunes in taste. Rather sweet, nice roasted notes here. Palate is full and creamy. Still hop tones.

From estucerveza. In Teku glass. Watching Steve Jobs film. At first i found it excessively sweet, but as warms up it improves, becomes more balanced and tasty, with molasses notes. The high abv is pretty well hidden, some warmth is noticeable but not as much as the abv could suggest and doesnt bother at all

Aromă slabă, foarte ”liniștită”, cu note de fructe negre de pădure, vin roșu puțin dulceag, cu tărie ridicată și bine maturat, ceva gem de coacăză neagră. Gustul e exploziv, cu efect de trezire în plină luptă după leșin, cu mult alcool, puțină dulceață, malț ușor prăjit, puțină cafea și ciocolată cu fructe negre, puțină aciditate, carbogazare înaltă (ca efect, aciditate intensificată pentru ceva timp). Postgust de durată, predominant alcool și puțin malț prăjit. Toate bune și frumoase, dar alcoolul nemascat, agresiv și prea ”alcoolic”... Dar e bună. S-a reușit ”a amesteca” un imperial stout cu ceva vodcă, fără a dilua partea de bere (metaforic vorbind).

beskid (271) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2017
Red fruits, molasses, alcohol. Quite tart in taste, very sweet and very alcoholic. Tiring, hard to finish.

PhilosophyGuy (798) - Łódź, POLAND - AUG 18, 2017
Dużo gorzkiej czekolady i pralin w aromacie. W smaku do tego wszystkiego dochodzi delikatny karmel i subtelne nuty czerwonych owoców. Gęste, oleiste. Alkoholu nie wyczułem - ogromny szacunek. Niczym likier o smaku gorzkiej czekolady. No i piana nawet była. Super!

theswiftsa (109) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2017
Tap at brewdog Camden. Pours jet black with a tan head. Nose is alcohol, dark berries, sweet and syrupy. Upfront is sweet, some molasses, dark berries melding into an alcohol finish, nowhere near as strong as it’s abv would imply. Really gains some character as it heats up.

basjansen14 (450) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2017 Black coloured ale with a small cream coloured head. Aroma: roasted malt, alcohol, sweetness and some vanilla. Taste: sweet, alcohol, roasted malt, red fruits, coffee and some liquorice. Think mouthfeel with low carbonation.

vastervikman (63) - Vastervik, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2017
Närmast kolsvart, tjock vätska. Doft av mäktig kladdig chokladkaka med kryddor i bakgrunden, ingefära, muskot och kardemumma. Smaken är först söt med fudge och choklad, därefter kryddig och i eftersmaken torr med trä, aska och träkol.
