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.

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.

Zer0 (1223) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle at home. Forgot I had this, has been in a box since I moved 2 years ago. Pours almost black with a brown head. Aroma is heavy alcohol, sugar, chocolate, vanilla. Taste is incredibly sweet, sugary. Cant even detect the bitterness, its just so freaking sweet. Some dark fruits noticable. Ok, the finish is a tad bitter. Its just over the top sweet though.

fitwitchik (433) - Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Bottle aged one year. Second time to consume this beauty. Pours almost black from the bottle with a light creamy head that dissipates quickly into beautiful lacing. Scent of sweet booze. O M G seriously the sweetest shit ever. And I like it. Flavor of raisin cranberry thickness. Goodness! This is a nectar meant to be sipped with some seriously good cheese. Chose an nice English cheddar. Feeling grateful.

DocJitsu (1944) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Pours an opaque dark brown with a one-finger, dark tan head. The aroma is melting caramel in the sauce pan with fermented raisins. Slick, viscous mouthfeel. Whoa!! The 18.2% ABV on the label is definitely accurate. Sweet raisin and rich caramel flavors. This brew is powerful in every possible way imaginable.

roxtersoxter (358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Pours very dark black with small tan head out of bottle. Unfiltered. Sweet aroma of raisins and oak. Sweet taste of malt and oak. Great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Raisins, dark pitted fruit, and roasted malts with a hint of alcohol comprise the aroma. A inky black pour with a small, rapidly dissipating khaki head and minimal to no lacing. The taste is slightly sweet. Dark roasted malts, raisins, coffee bitterness, caramel, brown sugar, sweet fruit with wood notes. The finish and aftertaaste, while sweet, have some pepper and alcohol flavors present. Full body and mild carbonation. Syrupy mouthfeel. Overall, a well crafted beer with an extremely complex flavor profile. It tastes like a sweet port. Would be great with blue cheese!

kappldav123 (6089) - GERMANY - JUL 3, 2013
On tap at CBC 2012. Deep black in the glass, small head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts quite sweet and malty, more and more dry. Finish less sweet, some earthy notes. Interesting beer.

tiong (7129) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2013
330ml bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki

Batch 001 (or 061?), BBE 31/11/09 Pours pitch black with a tiny bubbly brown head. Aroma of sweet roasty malts, dark chocolate, cocoa, wood, ash and oaky notes. Taste is sweetish, roasty, heavy and a bit oxidized with notes of dark chocolate, wood and oak. Finish is sweet, sticky and caramely with notes of oak, dark chocolate and some aged notes. Okay, but feels like its already past its prime.

Beer5000 (6376) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2013
330 ml bottle sampled in 2011. Black body with a small and fast disappearing brown head. Aroma has dark malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor is sweet, dark malt, coffee, chocolate, nice bitterness and warming alcohol. Fine body and long aftertaste. A bit rough and sweet, but nice and a lot smoother than Tokyo*

Bamsen78 (5291) - Snderborg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2013
UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 Bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown with small tan head. Clear aroma of malt with pronounced caramellish and boozy notes. Sugary flavour, enriched by scarse caramel notes. Excessivley sweety, amd yet unable to erase the boozy feeling. An astounding defeat for BrewDog. Im sorry. Go back to the basics.
