BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 16.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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 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.

Not this one, that one..Tokio* A beer that was dedicated to Thanksgiving style festivities last weekend. Popped the top and poured the viscous liquid out in clumps..maybe not quite..Thick, though, low carb..Boozy but not out of control with higher alcohols, just what it should be 18% of ridiculous ethanol pushing some cranberry and chocolate notes forward..Not really getting much jasmine or oak or French..For what this ridiculous beer is, it's pretty solid and probably would age well. A bit pricey, but whatchoo goin do? Good work, gentlemen..

I'm generally not a high ABV guy, but I've been reading alot about BrewDog pushing the envelope, so I figured I'd give this one a try. Purchased from the relatively new Beer Pantry, located in the Graybar Passage of Grand Central Terminal. This place is great...but CRAZY expensive. $19 for this 11.5 oz bottle of goodness. This brew is over-the-top in so many ways. Smell, appearance and taste are all going to be a love it, or hate it endeavor. Lots of fruit, sweetness and of course the booziness. I enjoyed it, but be prepared. It will kick your friggin ass.
