COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The constant, unrelenting noise becomes something purer than sound reverberating through every part of you as the eyes rush to take in the pixelated arcade action. Its all-pervading. Small silver coins are your life-blood, Player 1.
Our most involved beer, Tokyo* is an Imperial Stout brewed with copious amounts of speciality malts, jasmine and cranberries, dry-hopped with a bucket-load of our favourite hops and then carefully aged on toasted French oak chips.
Its all about moderation. Everything in moderation, Player 1. What logically follows is that you must from time to time, have excess. This beer is for those times.

McNeillR (2243) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 25, 2014
Darkest brown, no real head. Oaky, bleeding liquorice and light cherry. Almost oaty, decent sweetness. Vibrant darkest malt. Held up suprisingly well but rakes of dryness.

Bottle, from the CGArvieUK cave

(18.2% version). Exceptional beer! A bit sweet and the taste lasts for minutes. BrewDog once again shows why they are among my favourite breweries.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Jet black pour with a small tan head. Boozy aromas with some nice molasses and cocoa. Flavor is pretty warm at first but then the roasty character comes out nicely. Finish is long and a bit hot. If the abv was a bit more hidden on this one itd be a lot nicer but still pretty good.

GIJOE (1095) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Pours black with a frothy, brown head that fades quickly. Nearly no lacing. Nose is spiced molasses, dried prunes, and sweet mocha with oaky booze overtones. Taste is powerfully sweet and incredibly rich. Thick, full bodied, creamy goodness. Soft carbonation. Whiskeyed toffee finish. This is a remarkable dessert beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pushkinwow (2692) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
On tap at Capones 2013 Black Friday event. Dark mahogany with no head. Once it warmed up lots of molasses, raisin, prune, alcohol, oak, belgian candied sugar. Full body, mild carbonation, sweet but there is some bitterness present. Makes a great black and tan with Dogfish 120 minute!

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle. Unbelievably rich and thick with a massive sweet sherry aroma. The big abv isnt immediately apparent on the tongue but theres only a little time before the warmth in the chest becomes apparent. Very well made and well worth keeping for the last 30 odd months!

doublebock (558) - California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Appearance: Blackish-brown with a little beige head Aroma: Big barleywine like aroma with heaps of oak, coconut and whiskey Taste: Tons of flavor going on here starting with a creamy texture and then a massive wallop of maltiness, candy sugar. The high alcohol content is quite noticeable as is the whisky infused oak. This finish has toffee, mocha and some spiciness and some fruitiness on the side of the tongue. Overall: Cant quite pick up on the jasmine here and if I didnt read the label I would have missed the cranberries as well. Still the combination does give that massive malty flavor a unique twist.
