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

yngwie (16590) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2010
Bottle at Patricks. It pours a clear dark brown, almost black body with a small beige head. The aroma is roasted and quite boozy, with coffee, some dark chocolate and salty licorice, and a good dash of vanilla. A too good dash actually, but its not really bad. Theres vanilla in the flavor too, but here the roasted malts are pulling a bigger part of the load. Some notes of dried fruits and licorice, and quite a lot of coffee. Quite low on bitterness. Full-bodied and warming, slightly oily on the palate. The finish is pretty much like the initial flavor, with some roasted malts bitterness. A quite delicious beer that needs some time to finish. 100610

Dark brown color, small beige head. Woody, oaky aroma, some underlying berries. Very sweet, sticky, but same time smooth palate. Loads of caramel, kirschberry, some licorice. Certain Brewdog house flavor in the brew. Warming beer with lots of ageing potential.

Dark brown, almost black, pour with a small khaki head. Caramel, herbal (anise?), dark fruit, and booze on the nose. Some brown sugar, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. The flavor is boozy and overly sweet. Caramel, sugar, and licorice. Dark fruit, some roasted malt, and notes of dark chocolate and coffee.

Oakes (15820) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2010
Bottle from Cornelius. Very dark brown. Big nose, some coffee, plum, toast...very sweet with spicy alcohol and a nice smokey character. A strange beer, its ok but its not very refined or cohesive. Or exciting. The good elements are enjoyable however.

Bottle @ Hj Hansen, Odense. Pours black with a small creamy head and lacings. Deep roasted nose and flavor with notes of coffee, fruit and caramel. Oily, slick and full bodied. Warmth from alcohol. Fine balance and very tasty beer. Nice

jtclockwork (15260) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 3, 2010
UPDATED: APR 15, 2011 Pours jet black with quickly dissipating tan head. Nose is licorice, chocolate, cranberries and spices. Taste is same with sweet caramel, vanilla, black licorice and cranberries leading the charge. Very smooth for the abv. I drank this warm with no refrigeration. I barely detected the alcohol. I thought this was an amazing brew.

mcberko (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2010
330mL bottle, been looking forward to this for a while, pours black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, vanilla, oak, and molasses. Flavour is very sweet - roasted malt, molasses, oak, and huge alcohol of course. A wonderful treat.

FatPhil (14506) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 27, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2015 330ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki) (5:4:8:4:15=3.6)
Black and flat, head hard to achieve, as the bubbles pop immediately. Thin sharp aroma. Some nettles as it becomes less cold. Sharp carbonation, quite a tingle on the tongue, but of course thats alcohol too. Retronasals are sweet and chocolatey, with some currants and berries too. Alcohol very well hidden considering. Theres just a little dry burn, but not the booziness one often gets. Beestings in the retronasals as time warms. Finish a little sweet and sticky, but good roast too. A touch gimicky, but perfectly drinkable. Rerate: 330ml bottle (drink baar, tallinn) Did have a nice tight head this time. Again, its a bit stinky, theres some nail varnish remover and alcohol. Similar retronasals, some cidery, some winey sharpness. Very sweet sugary body, but a nice burtness too. Smooth sweet sticky sweet body. The best things from the taste are in the finish, and not the bad parts. Probably wouldnt give this quite as much this time, but its not so much worse that I feel compelled. Maybe 1 off taste and overall, but Id add 1 to look too.
Rerate: Tap (TCBW15) (7:4:7:4:15-=3.7-) at 16.5%
Pleasant roasty tout. Sweet. Lovely rich body. Sweet, but not too sticky. Drinkabiliy great for 16.5%. Finish sweet and roasty. Quite delicious.
