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

Watch out, very thick and syrupy, but excellent flavours of roasted coffee and chocolate... The big thing is still the consistency!!! Definitely worth the try.

A naso poco: fiori, porto. In bocca una batosta. Liquore, malto. Complessa, da provare.

Pours black brownish with beige. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, licorice,plum, yeast, nice and bitter but to much alcohol for my taste

Working my way through the Brew Dog catalog. My new favorite brewery. Poured from bottle (note spelling on my bottle is "Tokio" not "Tokyo" don’t know if there was some licensing issue with the city of Godzilla...) into my Southern Tier tulip. Dark mahogany pour. Looks great. Great assymetrical head. Low froth retention. Outstanding flavor. Massively boozy but flavorful. Dark fruits, raisons, fig maybe, prune - grape... Sweet, malty. Complicated. Like the new girl. Don’t let her go just because she doesn’t act like your wife. That’s the whole. reason. you’re. Here. Give her a shot to please you. She’ll be full of surprises. Wow. Over-concentrated 18.2 ass-kicker flavor bomb. Have with food. Any food. Get you some.

on tap @ beer bier ,Budapest. Very big stout with big charactoristics. pours smooth dark and thick. Creamy brown head which stays. With the head it looks like lovely espresso coffee. Aroma is sweet, roasted coffee, burnt malts. taste is big. Coffee and and malts first is the overtaken by fruityt sweetness. Very sweet, very strong taste. but alcohol is still well hidden. I have tasted many lower abv beer with more alchol taste than this 18.2%. this is very good quality stout and very well made i think.

Poured from the bottle. This is a tough one to rate becuase I dont have much to benchmark this off of. Smells like booze and a bit of juniper berries. The taste is very boozy with a bit of other flavors in there that are tough to make out becuase the booze kills them quickly. Overall, not a bad beer for the abv

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.
