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

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Notes from old backlog: Very deep brown pour with a ruby hue- surprisingly decent head retention for the ABV. Theres a sticky thin tna lace left on the glass. Sweet aroma of raisin/date paste, maltose, maple like and solventy with some fusels noted. Cough medicine texture. Goes down slow and hot. Under attenuated, huge and maple like, nondescript booze, and excessive maltose. One dimensional and pretty much undrinkable. Not a fan of Brew Dog.

330ml bottle, shared. Thick, dark black with a minimal tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, alcohol, quite sweet. Flavour is similar, with hints of leather. Went very well with a cheeseboard

butla, warka do 20/11/26 (czyli swiezutka). Fajnie wyglada, bo czarne i ma piane ktora zaraz znika syczac a la szampan. aromat... zdziwko, bo wcale nie jest intensywny. ale za to jest bardzo zlozony i "wymieszany" - w sensie tu nie ma w ogole takich jednoznacznych nut, tu one sie mieszaja, tworzac w efekcie aromat hmmm... no pachnie jak Tokyo*. Jakbym musial wymyslac czym Tokyo pachnie, to by bylo: rodzynki, czekolada, wanilia, kakao, ciemne owoce (nie to, ze zurawina tylko, choc tak, jest tez zurawina wsrod owocow, cholera wie, czy sobie czasem tego nie zasugerowalem), drewno, lukrecja, tussipect... palonosc chyba... czasami cos na ksztalt przyprawowosci... w ustach... mrau, #teamslodyczka ewidentnie. Ciala niemalo, syropowe takie nieco. Alko zaskakujaco dobrze ukryte. generalnie powtorka aromatow, czyli Tokyo* nie tylko pachnie ale i smakuje jak Tokyo*. Dlugie, slodkie, nieco przyprawowo-czekoladowo-lukrecjowe posmaki. Generalnie: ewidentnie klasa piwo i o. Chyba jestem ciekaw pierwszej warki, ktora sobie polezala juz troche :)

Svartvit (210) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 13, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours black with a mocha head. Of course there is a boozy richness to this but its very pleasant, not harsh. A ton of chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, berries, oak, molasses, caramel, vanilla, liquorice. Over medium sweet, medium bitter. Full body, low carbonation.

Faathoven (62) - Barcellona P.G., ITALY - JAN 6, 2017
Pour pitch black with brownish head. Aroma is bold, full of chocolate, dark fruits, sweet booze, coffee beans, roasted malts. Flavour very complex, dark chocolate, sweet maltiness, tons of licorice, slight vanilla, dry oakiness, some berries. Full body, thick creamy mouthfeel. That alcohol is soooo well hidden!!! Awesome stuff.

Noform (20) - Tarnowskie Gry, POLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Leje sie czarne w przewężeniu widać rubinowe refleksy, piana średnia dość ładna. zapach owoce, żurawina sie przebija taki likier żurawinowy, może troszkę ciemnych słodw ale aż tak bardzo intensywne to nie jest. Karmel. Smak żurawina bardzo wyraźna, za nią ciemne słody, troszkę czekolady oraz kawy. Pojawia się też nutka drewna dębowego oraz karmel Alkohol jak na 16,5% to rewelacyjnie ukryty, przyjemnie rozgrzewa jak przy dobrym likierze. Wysycenie mi przeszkadza ale jak nalałem z wysoka to już było ok. Goryczka lekko ściągająca, żurawinowa. Piwo jest słodkawe nie jest to ulepek. Ciała by mogło mieć więcej przyznam szczerze. :D

jasonbenali (163) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle from Brewdog online. Pours an impenetrable dark black with a quickly fading brown head and good lacing. So much going on with the aroma. Theres certainly booze, with both whisky and port notes coming through. Then there are the dark malts, plums, oak, cranberry, plus citrus and burnt pineapple. The taste enhances those aromas with thick sweetness and a bitter long, long finish that is still going at the time of writing! Lots of body and plenty of booze. A real sipper and a great example of what beer can be. For once not over-hyped by Brewdog.

Surprisingly good stout from everyones favourite try-hard craft beer businessmen. A hot water bottle full of cranberries and port. Worth stumping up for. (Tap at Brewdog Birmingham, listed as 16.5% not 18.2)

Bottle at home celebrating an early Xmas. Pours like oil, black and iridescent, minimal head. Huge chocolate, charcoal, molasses aroma. Big boozy, oaky, whisky, dates, dark chocolate taste. Lovely thick full mouthfeel. Bloody lovely. Kicks the original Tokyo in the nads.
