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

Dark and mysterious. Despite the high alcohol content a strong smokey and fruity flavor is the backbone of this offering but make no mistake this stuff is potent.

CanCrusher (1057) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - APR 5, 2017
Bottle 0,33L. Courtesy of Gregor. Flat black color look with small, creamy, dark brown head that mostly dissipate fast. Aroma of alcohol mixed with dark chocolate, sherry, dark dried fruits, espresso, reminds me of griotte chocolate candy. Heavy sweet, chocolate and cherry taste with some brandy notes and long lasting aftertaste. Masterpiece for occasional use...

wiadran (189) - POLAND - APR 3, 2017
aroma of sweet coffee, wood, dried fruits, rather weak and a bit disappointing.
black, very black. top short, reduces to crown, has some lacing
taste is intriguing, very sweet countered by minor coffee notes. a finish starts with fruity sour, red currant/cranberry. ends with something more bitter and... intense alcohol (considering the power tho, it doesnt feel like 16.5%)
very dense, full body, carbonation medium
its not a great beer. but its crazy, its different which makes it... kinda great beer. not the best ive ever tried, but im nearly sure ill want to have another bottle of it.

Wixie (532) - BELGIUM - APR 1, 2017
Very dark brown liquid, hardly any head. Fruity aroma of stout. Heavy body, hardly any carbonation. Taste is sweet, stout.

DonGregorio (267) - POLAND - APR 1, 2017
Shared bottle. Pitch black beer with brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, cranberries, dark fruits, licorice, chocolate, alcohol. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter, of dark fruits, cranberries, bitter chocolate, alcohol, roasty. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Boozy (which is not a surprise), although not in an unpleasant way. Very fruity for an imperial stout. Aggressive, powerful and truly unique.

Turtles (2456) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2017
Keg @ BrewDog Sdermalm. Pitch black, medium size khaki head, some lacing. Subtitle aroma, sweet malty, red berries, chocolate and toast. Full-bodied for sure, thick, creamy and silky. Not picking up to much from the oak barrels in the taste. Creamy toffee, red berries, roasted barley, orange, chocolate and port. Dry and warming finish. Solid imp but doesnt wow me.

wojanex (84) - warszawa, POLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Skandal smakowy- alkohol niszczy wszystko, zieje wdą ten stout, jakby gorzałę wlać do kawy po prostu piwo pornograficzne, menelskie, choć w cenie biznesmenelskiej.

rodsquad (174) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2017
Keg at Brewdog Castlegate. Pours black with tan head. Nose heavy with rum-drenched coffee beans smoothed out with vanilla. Taste follows the nose with a bitter cherry bite. A luxurious palate. Soft and creamy with a cutting sharp carbonation. Serious chest-warming strength with chocolate smooth body. The luxury stout I expected but not as heavy on the alcohol vapour as I was expecting but still heavy. Boozy fun.
