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

This is intense. Maybe a little too sweet for what I was feeling. Huge taste of cranberries and sweet plums. Just about a carbonated port. Alcohol not as noticeable for being 18.2.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Appearance: Dark brown with a tan finger thick creamy head. Aroma: Treacle, bread/toast, grassy, berry fruit, wood, liquorice and spiritous. Taste: Medium/high sweetness and low/medium bitterness and sourness. Palate: Thick smooth texture and medium body, no carbonation and very easy to drink. Initially there is an upfront sweetness with a treacle taste this then develops into a slight tartness in the middle. The finish lingers with sweetness (honey/treacle like) and a slight alcohol warmth. Comments: Very tasty and left a glass lace. This is quite sweet and is more like a liqueur in that respect. This is a bottle from batch 911.

Chudwick (3004) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Draft - pours soopa dark brown. Nose is wood and dark fruit. Boozy. Sweet. A sipper. Strongest beer Ive ever had yet. More of a dessert wine. Burns the gums. Dont know if I want to finish this. Plums on steroids.

S_Side_Smitty (754) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Pours black with a small light tan head. Aroma is dark malts, molasses, and maybe a little rubbing alcohol. Taste is sweet, sweet - I know from the 18.2% ABV - molasses and malts. Not super complex, but the ABV is not in your face. Dangerous beer, but quite good if you like molasses. PS: After reading other reviews, I can pick up the cherry nuances in this one. Ill adjust my score accordingly.

IPAgutten79 (931) - Skui, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2014
Utseendet er svart som natta, nesten uten skum. Aromaen er kaffe, sjokolade, malt og alkohol. God aroma. Smaken biter deg i munnen med en gang, ikke s rart nr man tar beistets 18,2% i betraktning. Allikevel er ikke alkoholen overveldende. Her er ellers kaffe, ristet malt, sjokolade, mrk frukt, sdme (honning?) og alkohol. Den er st i smaken, kanskje litt for st for meg. Selv om denne maskerer sin absurde alkoholprosent ganske bra blir alkoholen litt for tydelig for min smak. Noe ryk smak ogs, men det kler den bra. Medium/tykk konsistens. Fin munnflelelse, litt bitterhet samt rikelig med varme fra alkoholen i ettersmaken. Varmer nedover hele halsen. Greit at den kommer i 25 cl flasker...

rand (1580) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle 33 cl from erzbierschof.ch. Almost black beer with beige foam little consistent. Roasted aromas, coffee, Rhum, molasses-licorice. the mouth is liquor-like, of course, with a taste full, thick, syrupy of roasted malt, coffee, molasses-licorice-maple syrup, notes of Pedro Ximenez, wood, dry fruits. Very sweetened with an acidulity which gives sour notes. Hearty finale bit geerdy and balanced. A candy in the liqueur and finale a little scorching.

Gription79 (2880) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Poured from a 12ounce bottle. Pours dark brown with very little head. The aroma is burnt sugar and molasses. The flavor is maple syrup like. The finish is rich chocolate maltiness. This beer is huge, warming, rich.

Hermod (6870) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 18, 2014
33cl bottle, batch #901. BB 16-01-22. Black color, brown head, oily. Roastedness, molasses, licorice, quite sticky on the nose. Flavor has molasses, syrup, sweetness, chocolate pudding. Sweet yeah, alcohol surprisingly well hidden. Long warming, sweet chocolaty finish. Later comes strong raisin notes as well. Interesting stuff. Heavy, sweet but high drinkability for the abv.
