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.

SkillsFactory (555) - ITALY - FEB 16, 2016
Batch 079, best before 21/03/24, aperta il 16 Febbraio 2016. Rossa scurissima, alla vista nera, con riflessi caramello, schiuma nocciola non molto persistente che forma però un anello lungo la parete del bicchiere e non svanisce mai del tutto. Aroma in evoluzione man mano che si scalda: bourbon, cacao, biscotti alla cannella, baccello di vaniglia, prugna secca, liquirizia, uva passa, caffè tostato, rabarbaro, melassa, note legnose accompagnate da leggerissimo erbaceo. Al palato parte dolce con liquirizia, vaniglia e melassa, segue poi cioccolato fondente misto a bourbon, il tutto arricchito da una coda molto persistente dove la fa da padrone il caffè tostato accompagnato da bourbon, note legnose, di rabarbaro ed amaro erbaceo. Corpo pieno, poco carbonata, oleosa, quasi masticabile, come al solito BrewDog è una garanzia.

Bawelt (578) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 10, 2016
Excellente. Le nez est très typé heaven hill avec des notes de moisissures nobles assez marquées. Fond très caramel, légèrement chocolaté, le stout est discret. La bouche est assez douce et quasiment pas éthylique. Le heaven hill est à l’attaque et se poursuit en caramel fumé qui se complète bien avec un fond bourbon très agréable. Encore une fois, le stout est plus un support. On décèle tout de même une légère amertume de torréfaction en longueur. Jolie.

Rask0lnikov (786) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2016
Dark brown colour. Head disapears remarkably quickly. Coffee, smoke, whiskey, caramel in the aroma. Bread, caramel at first. Whiskey in the middle. Coffee, dark fruits in finish. Heavy bodied, not so well balanced, rather over carbonated, powerful imperial stout.

Huhzubendah (3543) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Dark brown, near black body with a beige cap. Aromas of sweet bourbon, oak, chocolate. Tannic with dark chocolates and a subtle touch of pine and hops in the finish. Tasty.

Beer5000 (5951) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2016
330 ml bottle. Clear black body with a small beige head. Lovely aroma of dark, roasted malt, perfumed Bourbon, vanilla, wood and roasted coffee. Flavor is much as expected from aroma, dark medium roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, lots of Bourbon, vanilla wood and very balanced bitterness, mild in carbonation. Full bodied with long lasting aftertaste. A really nice one in the Paradox series. I see several older comments on the alcohol/booze, but I can only taste this as a nice and warming thing, it might have something with my bottle being well stored for a while.
