Nothing like an 18.2% beer...
My husband and I stopped at our favorite watering hole on the way home from work last night. They were running a beer special for BrewDog's Tokyo. At $18 for a 12 oz bottle we knew we had to try it.

It was impressive to say the least. I've never had a beer this strong before. I really enjoyed it, but there is now way I'd ever be able to drink more than one.

Has anyone else had this one?

Never had it, but it sounds fantastic! I want one... bad.

This is the description straight off BrewDog's site. They describe it much better than I ever could...


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.

18.2% damn did you grow a beard while drinking it?

No, but I thought I spotted some chest hair last night...

Sounds like it would raise your midi-chlorian count also.
