BREW DOG - Tokyo, Intergalatic Fantastic Imperial Stout, 18.2%.
This, is a beer inspired by a 1980's space invaders arcade game played in Japan's capital.
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 they then dry-hop this killer stout with a bucketload of Brewdog's 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.
Malts: Marris Otter, Dark Crystal, Caramalt, Chocolate Malt, Roast Barley.
Twist: Brewed with Jasmine and Cranberries. Dry-Hopped then aged on oak chips.
