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, thatís 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... kolyakorzh (3) - Kharkiv, UKRAINE - SEP 9, 2013 does not count
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 itís more like dryness. Itís 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 Ė 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!

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!
