COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottle and keg,series special
Imperial Stout aged in American Bourbon Barrels for 12 months. A schizophrenic translatlantic son of a bitch of a beer. Huge, decadent imperial stout clashes in the most beautiful way with the best incarnation of the American Dream since Nixon choked on a cheeseburger. We think this might just be the best Paradox ever. Available in both keg and bottle.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2016 Vintage 2014: Pours oily black color, clear, with stable foamy light brown head. Aroma: intense dark and roasted malts aroma, with notes of dark chocolate, espresso coffee, vanilla, oak, and intense bourbon smell, etc. Flavor: intense dark malt and roasted malt flavor, with notes of dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, coffee, supported with intense vanilla note, something which takes on molassses and licorice, but in second half steps forward huge, intense, spicy, almost boozy bourbon note. Finish is slightly bourbon spicy, slightly astringent, dry. Body is full, texture is smooth, carbonation is low. Overall: it would be proper head to head with Lost abbey track 10 or Goose island BCS, but for sure both are pretty more balanced in comparison with this one...

Procent (562) - POLAND - APR 17, 2016
Bardzo fajny aromat, mocna beczka, walinia, likier, nieco alkoholowe, a także karmel. Palności dość mało. Barwa czarna, piana znikoma. W smaku także sporo beczki, ale wchodzi już także większa palność. Piwo zdecydowanie oleiste, sporo ciała, świetnie pije się w temperaturze pokojowej. Czuć alkohol, w likierowej formie. Goryczka średnia. Bardzo dobry balans wszystkich elementów tego złożonego tworu. Bardzo dobre piwo!

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - MAR 29, 2016
Scuro color mogano con un velo di schiuma marroncina. Densa e liquorosa, odora di torta, legno e zucchero a velo; al palato è spessa, corposa, profonda con note di tostato, liquirizia, caramello, bourbon, uvette e cioccolato. Effervescenza piacevole che solletica la lingua, finale lungo, alcolico, caldo e persistente ma per nulla sgraziato. Mostruosa!

Mjp12 (1391) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2016
From an aged bottle, it pours Matt black, with a light tan head. There is a spicy vanilla barrel influenced aroma, with just hints of the bourbon. The taste is buttery vanilla stout, with the bourbon giving a slight burn on the finish. Not especially sweet, this is a dangerously drinkable 15% beer.
