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

Bottle shared by mspindler. Pours a very dark brown with nice tan head with lots of bubbles. Aroma is roasty yet fruity almost nutty. Taste is definitely very hot. The first sensation I felt was my nose burning as I slowly swallowed. Some dark fruits in the taste with a compelling sweetness that has a mild back bitterness ( im gonna guess from cranberries) also get some roasted malts and some bitter chocolate. Medium frothy pallet. Very good stuff but very HOT.

ComradeK (1181) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2010
330ml bottle. Pours a totally opaque black, with a yellow-beige head. Dark, rich and sweet aromas abound, with cranberries and port coming through strongly. More sweet berry flavours mingle with a hint of peppery hops in the initial taste. The mid-palate mixes Irish coffee with port, and the finish is full of a lovely alcoholic warmth. A delightful beer, full of flavours not normally found in beer, it is, however, one that must be drunk slowly, not the least because of its huge 18.2% ABV! It is nonetheless a lovely brew, well worth seeking out.

Can only compare this to WWW and I can see why this one leaves the planet and goes for intergalactic domination, its better all around, superb aroma, so deep and vinous, and slightly sour, and just so thick and rich, but mainly , this beer is very drinkable , very enjoyable, not just a crazy one offf experience. Split it with a friend. Cranberries, who knew.

dogbomb (1170) - ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2012
330ml bottle. Black as night with a mahogany corona. Little dark bubbles stick to the side of your glass like syrup. You can smell the booze coming off this... you can smell a scotch whisky, spices, chocolates and roasts. Sticky in the mouth. Thick. Incredibly warming, with cranberries, bananas and yet more chocolate and coffee. Theres hints of licorice and cherries. You feel this one travelling down. Needs sipping and nursing and dealing with properly. If you treat it right, it gives you an experience like no other. Its a little unbalanced (and very unhinged) to be the BEST beer experience. But its an experience all the same.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Bottle, at Stockholm Beer and Whisky Fest. Pours deep brown with a very thin off-white head. Aroma of chocolate in the forefront, along with vanilla, herbs, and some dark fruit. Flavor is on the sweet side, with vanilla, chocolate, grapefruit, orange, herbs, earth, berries and wood. Medium bodied, with a somewhat syrupy mouthfeel. Hops persist on the palate. Alcohol becomes very evident in the finish. Interesting, but I didnt enjoy it as much as batch 1.

From a well aged 12 oz bottle...poured in wine glass. Mohagany burgandy with minimal head. Aroma of dark roasted malts. Moderate carbonation and big body. Flavors of dark roasted malts, peat, alcohol, roasty grains. Overall big, bold, bodacious.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2010 Batch 3, BB 2020. The pour is coal black with a small, tan, frothy, fizzy head which is mostly diminishing with minimal lace. The nose is surprisingly not overwhelmingly hot; lots of molasses, black currant (maybe cranberry), soothing herbal (jasmine?), toasted oak, and leather. The flavor is intense but coming together nicely so far, more oak (dry and toasty), cranberry more apparent, toasted caramels, rich molasses, still some leather, light coffee grounds, maybe some maple. The palate is very warm, full, nearly lively, viscous, and coating. The finish is long with the oak drying it out, alcohol warming the back of the throat, the jasmine? notes soothing, and toasted caramels and leather lingering. Well where to start... Obviously still much too young but flavors already starting to complement each other well, especially in the finish. The palate is already nice but some calming will make it excellent. The adjunct additions were very nice complements to the beer. Will revisit in a couple years, maybe more to see if it pans out.
