Scopey (5539) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle at home in bonnie Scotland. It pours very dark brown with a small bubbly beige head. The nose is quite soft...roasted malt, sweet coffee, whisky, vanilla, caramel, chocolate, liquorice and a faint medicinal accent. The taste is also rather soft: caramel, chocolate, toast, roasted malt, whisky, wood, vanilla, earth, liquorice, coffee and some dark fruit with a warming bitter-sweet finish. Medium-full body, low carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Very nice indeed. I rather like how mellow and soft these older Paradox’s get with age. Very easy drinking.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 11, 2012
In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a very dark brown colour with a lacy tan head. Aroma of whiskey, dark chocolate, espresso coffee, caramel and Ovaltine malt. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Very nice.

Mortlach (959) - Rome, ITALY - APR 11, 2012
08/04/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (on draught, vintage 2009). Nera, poco densa, poca schiuma, poco persistente. Naso etilico, note di whisky, vaniglia, cocco, cioccolata, caffé, ossidazione. In bocca è totalmente vuota, dolciastra, cioccolato, caffé, alcol. Ha perso totalmente di corpo, risultando addirittura lievemente acquosa. I tre anni di invecchiamento non gli hanno giovato. Una delusione.

Countbeer (4065) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2011
Draught: Small brown head, that disappears quick, on top of a black colored beer. Smell roasted malts, whiskey, sweets, liquorice. Taste coffee, liquorice, dark chocolate, spices, roasted malts, roasted barleys, bitter, whiskey, grass, toffee. Spicy bitter coffee aftertaste. Low carbo, full body, light sticky texture and a soft tingling mouthfeel.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2010 Bottle shared by cgarvieuk, thanks what a beer. Pours a totally black color with a medium beige head. A wonderful sweet nose; you could enjoy this all night, cocoa, coffee, light whiskey, dark fruit. Such a smooth flavor; just the right wood and whiskey, cocoa, sweet coffee, tasted aged a bit. Somehow mellow and wonderful.

Lyncham (251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Very Different Beer. Dark brownish black color with a burnt high alchohol finish. Highly hopped. There is a soy sauce type finish to this. Very hard to classify. Either you like it or you don’t. An "A" for effort!

brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Hand labeled bottle from Papsoe! Super dark brown with walnut/maple/brick colors mixed in. No head at all. Every enjoyable aroma with whiskey, malt, chocolate, with noticeable alcohol and a bit of smoke and prune. Whiskey flavor well blended with malt, grain, hint of marshmallow, burnt malt grain, soft wood/oak and maybe a touch of vanilla. Subtle and nice. A bit watery at first but moves quickly to a mid level mouth feel and a dry finish.

25th April 2008 Smooth stout with smooth whiskey tones. Just a hint of smoke and a bittering finish. Smooth!

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Bottle. I think this came from MagicDave06. pPours a dark brown with a generous tan head. Smells of smoke, roasted malt, oak, some hints of single mat, some spicy hints. The smoke is really big in this one. Tastes of smoke, roasted malt, scotch, dry, spicy, peaty. Unfortunately, the booziness is too present with not enough malt to back it up.
