Tokyo beer from Brewdog and this edition is a supposedly forgotten experiment in which they aged the beer on oak Highland casks. I say 'Supposedly'
as word goes that it is just a small marketing stunt.
This beer however won't be forgotten that easily once tasted!!
Aged in limited quantities, this was bottle 2052 of 2237 bottled.
Pour: Dark/black beer with a cream/brown coloured head that quickly dissapears leaving some traces on the surface. Beer leaves a nice lacing on the glass.
Sniff: Intense smell of wood/oak, peat, whisky with hints of vanilla, dark fruit and liquorice and some smoke in the background
Sip: strong taste of wood and whisky and I had again a deep smokey/peatey flavour that lasted on the palate. A bit strange but certainly not unpleasant. I tasted also some cherries, like a cherry liquor.
Very complex tasting beer.
A very rich tasting complex beer but unfortunately my first and last as this beer isn't brewed/aged anymore.
