An intensely sweet sugar aroma. Very strong. Looks great. First sip is very sweet and very rich. The finish isn’t as heavy though, which is nice. While knowing it’s strong, this is smoother to drink than Goose Island’s behemoth stout. Too bad this is so pricy. Definitely could age for awhile too. greenclansman (975) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - MAR 31, 2012
Very dark color. No head, no carbonation. Rich whiskey and aromas. Same as taste with the oak in presence. Very strong beer that I shared with two other friends. One of the best of its kind....but for sure not the one you chose everyday. Pyrmir (6199) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2012
330 ml bottle. Aroma full,roasted and sweet, coffee. Tastes very sweet that blends perfectly with the tangy berries. Full body, great flavor. Iblis (2) - Eskilstuna, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2013 does not count
chocolate, coffee, roasty, woody, black, minimal head, medium sweetness, full body, soft carbonation, long finish, Arcanor (421) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
Source : From Brouhaha in Montreal, 330ml bottle.
Appearance : Opaque black with shy tan head.
Aroma : Rich black cherry, sweet and strong.
Taste : Like a train of flavours in your face, I nearly fell off my chair. No trace of that 18.2% of alcohol.
Palate : The fun continue, a full mouth of fun.
Overall : What a rush, BrewDog are good with publicity, that’s my third products from them and I definitively can say that they are even better as brewers. I have to get some of that Intergalactic beer steady in my cellar...

330 ml bottle, served cool in sniffer glasses.
From very complex and layered aroma you already get that beer real heavy-lifter, in smell there are strong reassemble of fortified wine. Caramel, coffee, toast and roast are all there with hard note of burned sugar and ripe grape that you can find in Muscat (wine), Porto and Madeira.
Pitch black appearance (little ruby when contrasted to light bulb). Head is minimal and brown.
Again, in taste there strong fortified wine-like notes, Tokyo is very sweet and alcohol is hidden right there. Bitterns minimal and it’s more like dryness. It’s now sour at all.
Body is very full with complex flavors - grape and raisins, dried apricots, licorice, some oaky notes, strong black coffee mixed with grappa or brandy.
Carbonation is almost flat. Texture is oily and sticky. Finish – astringent and dry.
One small bottle is more than enough for two people.
Unique beer that everyone should taste one (or more) times. Ptrck (11) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle at home (from Bierwinkel in Leiden, NL).
Typical stout black colour with a creamy colored head. Smells after caramelized sugar, berries, (hazel)nuts, roasted malts, oak and brandy. Complex and silky smooth mouthfeel. Sweet, berries, cherries, chocolate, raisins, vanilla and with a hint of alcohol (although the18,2% alcohol is dangerously hidden). More than excellent! Patjeadam (158) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 13, 2014
The first smell forebodes a strong alcohol and some sweets. But then the first taste, and it is so full of flavour and remarkably smooth. There are hints of jasmine and cranberries, but it is a very well combined marriage of rich taste. It is a party in your mouth and a very beautiful stout! On my favourites list now!

Black with creamy beige head. Nice chocolate and bourbon aroma, intense but not arrogant.
At taste is alcholic and light sweet with many ripe fruit flavour.
