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

imdownthepub (14335) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Hotel du Vin, Birmingham. Dark brown with ruby hints, tan head. Initially very winey, with a grape like hit, then supplementary flavours like aniseed, cough medicine and liquorice poke their nose in. Candy like in the middle, then a heavy roasted finish. It plays with the senses certainly, but I wouldnt keep going back to it.

Tmoney99 (14283) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Bottle. Poured dark brown with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Heavy toasted chocolate, dark fruit and herbal with a alcohol aroma. Full body with a sticky & smooth texture and flat carbonation. Heavy toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a heavy dark sweet finish and alcohol burn of long duration. This is a standout beer and I love the burn.

Scopey (14229) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2011
On tap at Brewdog Bar Aberdeen. The colour is dark brown/black with a quickly dissipating tan head. The nose is of varnish, soy, toffee, caramel and molasses. The taste is initially of tangy soy sauce, liquorice and wood leading to caramel, molasses and plenty of dark fruits (cherries, plums, raisins). It has syrupy, rich mouth-feel and a sweet, warming finish.
