Bought 3 bottles from Website after press attention.
I was startled by this. Aroma, intense chocolate and dark ripe fruit, sherry
taste. deep chocolate, fruit tartness, malt sweetness and a complimentary bitterness, velvety and low carbonation
Lingering chocolate and even vanilla too.
Beuatiful if rather strong brew.
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2017 A dark brown beer with a small beige head. Aroma is roasted with chocolate notes. Taste is malty and roasted, notes of chocolate and coffee. Nice bitterness to balance GarrettB (1607) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 17, 2017
January 1st, 2015 - First beer of the new year is Brew Dog’s Tokyo, following the ball drop and some light hearted confetti tossing. I immediately get to welcoming 2015 with this deep black brew, putting my nose into the wide New Belgium brand tulip. Nose furrowed in the beer’s atmosphere, it doesn’t take much time at all to pick up huge heavy notes of strawberry and grape jam on the nose. More digging reveals some aromatic pipe tobacco (cavendish), all paired with a huge alcohol note. Yet more searching reveals raisin and a vinous scent, with touches of blackberry peppered around the edges. It’s a rich aroma, and speaks to what I hope will be an intense and complex flavor. To wit, my tasting notes: "WHOAHHJHJJ Blearghghghggghhg." The flavor is incredibly strong, leading with raisin, but bolstered with dark sherry sweetness. Cherry flavored pipe tobacco and rum soaked cherries come in for another one-two punch on the tongue, swirling and whirling on a foamy palate. Then comes the epic of the aftertaste, coaxing another mouthful with dark, voluptuously cherries and dark honey, mingled with some beet sugar and molasses. This is a whole lot of beer, loud and with a train’s worth of momentum, so make sure this is your last brew of the night. beton (621) - Tarnobrzeg, POLAND - MAY 4, 2017

D’un coté, c’est le genre de bières qui te donne envie d’une pilsener et de l’autre c’est un univers unique et tellement intense. Dans tous les cas, une expérience.

Una señora cerveza con un aroma muy especial a diferentes especias y toques herbáceos que se mantienen en el trago... su apariencia es petróleo puro y a pesar de tener casi 17 grados de alcohol está equilibrada y deja un sabor que permanece. Seffle (464) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle from SB, drunk 160206.
Batch 174. ABV 16.5!
Mahoganny body with a rather weak disappering brown head.
Incredibly full aroma with dried fruits, port, brandy, treacle. The palate is enormous with dried prunes, coffee, liquorice, black molasses ...
Of course very alcohol sweet but balanced, even though.
Why did I buy just this one bottle

12 ounce bottle bought from specs in Houston. Drink at home in July 2015. The underlying stout was well balanced between toasted mall coffee and chocolate in the barrel aging was a perfect complement to the underlying stout. This beer was very enjoyable and I would absolutely recommend it to others.
