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.

alberti92 (159) - - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours pitch black with a thin tan head. Body is medium with low carbonation. Aroma is awesome. First thing that comes to mind is chocolate krackles. Underneath all that there's more chocolate, some vanilla, chocolate, coffee and chocolate. Some dark fruits also come through. Taste is heavily bourbon driven with undertones of chocolate and coffee and a bit more chocolate. Unreal beer. One of the best I've had.

Cam_Dynamite (94) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2015
Pours black with a small tan head. Rather unimpressive looking. Nose is bourbon, vanilla, booze and dark chocolate. Taste is very similar to the nose, add in some vegemite, dark fruits and wood or tobacco. Quality sipper.

chimpgibbon (424) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Thanks Iain. This is unquestionably top level monkey treacle. Flavours of depressed yet enigmatic dusky fruit, sweetly elusive in their obvious rancour. After that, a couple of moments of alcohol, ending with that feeling when you dip your balls in a warm but not hot bath.

Rostislav (3) - BULGARIA - FEB 24, 2015 does not count
Dark,almost black with dark brown foam. So rich aroma - dry fruits, date, vanilla, spiced and smoky. Full and thick body. And the taste...coffee, caramel, nuts, bourbon of course.Warming. Amazig

mecafilo (137) - Perugia, ITALY - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a pitch black colour, small diminishing tan head. Aroma is distinctly sweet, with surprising notes of sugar cane, along with the usual notes of coffee, vanilla and licorice; additional notes of bourbon. Taste is heavy sweet, little bitter, little sour. Medium to heavy body, creamy texture, very soft carbonation.

Davros (2260) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2015

Case (299) - GERMANY - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle in fancy carton. Pours pitch black with small dark-brown head. Aroma is full of dark fruit, plums, dark grapes, molasses, caramel. Taste is lots of coffee, red wine, dark chocolate, bit of that fruity cognac touch. Loads of vanilla and wood. Huge alcohol kick right from the first sip. Full bodied with a big spicy bite and good carbonation. This is a big bruiser of a beer. Sip and enjoy the complexity.
