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

sharkweek (119) - Statesboro, Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2013
I had this bottle aged for over two years and had high expectations. It poured into a snifter black as the devils heart with little to no head. The only aroma I could detect was rubbing alcohol. The mouth feel on this one was way too thin for my taste. It almost felt like a diet coke. The flavor was alcohol forward with slight coffee and cranberry taste in the back end. Glad I tried it, will not recommend to anyone or seek out again. Big Disappointment.

bjorn77 (205) - Krakw, POLAND - APR 29, 2017
Aromat: nie jest jakoś mega intensywny, jest tu karmel, słodkie suszone owoce, kwiaty, trochę świeżych i soczystych, ciemnych owocw leśnych. Wygląd: ciemnobrunatne, piana brunatna, po agresywnym nalaniu sięgająca do płtora centymetra, ładna ale znika prawie od razu do zera. Smak: gęste i pełne ciała, zwłaszcza przy pierwszym zetknięciu. Bardzo słodkie, jest tu cała masa gorzkiej czekolady, jest karmel, palony karmel, wanilia podana z odpowiednim umiarem, trochę kawy, suszonych owocw i świetny smak świeżej i cierpkiej żurawiny, dobrze kontrującej tą mocną podstawę słodową. Dobry balans bo na szczęście nie jest zbyt owocowe. Goryczka niewielka w kierunku średniej, ale chwilę zalega, utrzymując się w posmaku w ustach. Dębina dobrze wyczuwalna, dająca ostry posmak i ściąganie na języku. Alkohol w smaku względnie ukryty, czuć tylko jak lekko piecze w język i rozgrzewa w przełyku i żołądku, w oparach też go czuć, choć nie jest nieprzyjemny tylko bardziej likierowy. Na finiszu cierpkie i taniczne od drewna. Piwo bardzo bogate, złożone, wielowarstwowe, nie jest za ciężkie dzięki owocom, nie jest męcząco słodkie dzięki chmielom, dębinie i ponownie żurawinie. W tym piwie właśnie zwraca moją uwagę nieadekwatna do mocy i bazy słodowej lekkość.Gładkie mimo wysokiej zawartości alkoholu.Kapitalny kontrast miedzy mocną słodyczą a żurawiną i nutami dębowymi. Nie widzę tylko jaśminu, no może tylko lekkie nuty kwiatowe w aromacie. Żurawina doskonała, wanilia idealnie w sam raz, dębina świetna, bardzo dobra jest kompozycja w tym piwie. Balans w Tokyo* jest mocno przesunięty w stronę słodyczy mimo wszystko, choć jak dla mnie nie jest ulepkowate. Ocenę o punkt zaniżył troszkę niewyraźny aromat. Podsumowując, jest to bardzo ciekawe, złożone i intensywne piwo, słodkie i bardzo mocne, mi bardzo smakowało.

CanCrusher (1057) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - APR 5, 2017
Bottle 0,33L. Courtesy of Gregor. Flat black color look with small, creamy, dark brown head that mostly dissipate fast. Aroma of alcohol mixed with dark chocolate, sherry, dark dried fruits, espresso, reminds me of griotte chocolate candy. Heavy sweet, chocolate and cherry taste with some brandy notes and long lasting aftertaste. Masterpiece for occasional use...

wiadran (189) - POLAND - APR 3, 2017
aroma of sweet coffee, wood, dried fruits, rather weak and a bit disappointing.
black, very black. top short, reduces to crown, has some lacing
taste is intriguing, very sweet countered by minor coffee notes. a finish starts with fruity sour, red currant/cranberry. ends with something more bitter and... intense alcohol (considering the power tho, it doesnt feel like 16.5%)
very dense, full body, carbonation medium
its not a great beer. but its crazy, its different which makes it... kinda great beer. not the best ive ever tried, but im nearly sure ill want to have another bottle of it.

DonGregorio (272) - POLAND - APR 1, 2017
Shared bottle. Pitch black beer with brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, cranberries, dark fruits, licorice, chocolate, alcohol. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter, of dark fruits, cranberries, bitter chocolate, alcohol, roasty. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Boozy (which is not a surprise), although not in an unpleasant way. Very fruity for an imperial stout. Aggressive, powerful and truly unique.

Turtles (2466) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2017
Keg @ BrewDog Sdermalm. Pitch black, medium size khaki head, some lacing. Subtitle aroma, sweet malty, red berries, chocolate and toast. Full-bodied for sure, thick, creamy and silky. Not picking up to much from the oak barrels in the taste. Creamy toffee, red berries, roasted barley, orange, chocolate and port. Dry and warming finish. Solid imp but doesnt wow me.

Skandal smakowy- alkohol niszczy wszystko, zieje wdą ten stout, jakby gorzałę wlać do kawy po prostu piwo pornograficzne, menelskie, choć w cenie biznesmenelskiej.
