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

Benzai (14820) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2011
Bottle at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Bottle said: Batch 4, aged on French toasted Oak chips. Dark brown color with a barely visible red glow coming through. Smell alcohol, roasted coffee, wood. Firm heavy taste at first, mostly roastyness and alcohol hitting me, but a soft warming finish of vanilla, warming alcohol and wood. Nice.

Tmoney99 (14021) - 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.

imdownthepub (13873) - 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.
