Tokyo* (intergalactic fantastic oak aged stout) (Aged 2 years+) – Brewdog

From Brewdog out of Aberdeenshire, Scotland comes the “Tokyo* (intergalactic fantastic oak aged stout)” aged in my cellar from March 2013 to December 2015. The beer pours an opaque black with a brown head.  The aroma consists of roasted malts, toffee, chocolate, cranberries, oak and sweetness. The flavour is of cranberries, oak, chocolate, toffee, caramel, dark fruits, sweetness and some booze warmth at the end. The alcohol content comes in at 18.2% with an IBU of 90. This beer is epic in all ways. I wish I could get more of it but it no longer seems to be sold in BC. This is only a 330ml bottle but it should be shared or drank over two days unless you want to have a bad morning!

Commercial Description:  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.
