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

Bottle thanks to james at home in the "oerbier"snifter. Aroma is bitter chocolate, cherry syrup jam, drying peppery alcohol, the spice is subtle. Its soo subklte and amazing. Taste is utterly outstanding. you initially get this swet chocolate black malt, then this massive sweetness, then the swallow gives you the spice, cinnamin, strawberry, tart caspberry, cardimon, black pepper, my god it lasts. Im utterly overwhelmed, the carbonation is soft and perfect. My god this is such a good beer. I rarely drink a whole beer over 8% and this is more than double that. Mind blowing.

Bottle. 12 oz. Split with and courtesy of JRedmond. Pours a deep, cola black with a similar, fizzy cola-beige head. Aroma is insanely agressive; immediate notes of chocolate, roast coffee beans, oat, milk, slowly turning into raisins, figs, cranberries, yeast and sweet malts. Body is full, rich, and a bit chewy. Palate is velvety smooth. Packs a powerful, boozey punch in the incredible, insanely long lasting finish. Excellent, uniquely crafted Imperial stout. Highly recommended for those who enjoy both solid Imperial stouts and more experimental/envelope-pushing brews.

This is a beautiful beer. The aroma is milk chocoilate, berries, fruit. Very nice. The appearance is a deep black, tan head. The flavor is amazinfg, creamy milk chocolate, berries, booze. The finish is light hops, and a beautiful boozy warming in the throat. Medium body, slightly less thick than expected. A really great achievement.

Bottle: Thanx to Mr.Rask: Dark red colour, with a big brown creamy head. Aroma is dry fruits,coffee,dark Chcoclate,vanilla,cyrup/alcy, and a woody ending. Flavor had a werry complex mouth feeling who comes in a "military following order: Berry,chcolate,coffee, vanilla,alcy, portviny,and ends with a big long fruity/bitter finsh. Wow! What a beer this is, and I think it will be moore complex with, some years aging. Werry nice!!

One of the best Imperial Stouts available, pure rich velvet roast flavours. Magic brew, well worth the price and delivery costs. Special occasion indulgence! Big cheers to the Scottish chaps

Amazing. Oily black, minimal brown head. Aroma is caramel, coffee, chocolate. Tastes the same but with wood. Can fully feel the oak barrel. Creamy and smooth, booze very well hidden. Great ale.

CyborgX (90) - THAILAND - OCT 25, 2016
Bottle - Aroma is sweet malts and a little smokey. Taste is very sweet but counterbalanced with bitterness, which keeps you thinking with every sip "is this sweet or bittersweet? And Sip it you must to savour the plethora of flavours squeezed into every mouthful. So many its hard to guess, chocolate? Dark fruits? Faint coffee? Lumps of smoked wood? LOL. It masks the mind numbing 16.5% alcohol, and leaves a very slight bitter end as the rest of the flavours bounce around your tongue and slowly fade on the palette. I was worried it was going to be dissapointing for the high price.... TRUST ME IT ISN'T! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
