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.

330ml bottle @ PBF IX

Pours pitch black with a smooth head. Aroma of roasty malts, vanilla, oak, sweet bourbony butter notes, hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is sweet, bourbony and roasty with notes of butter, oak, dark chocolate and oak, some hints of vanilla. Finish is sweet, dry roasty and slick with loads of bourbony notes. Interesting, hides the ABV quite well.

Keg at Brewdog aka Queuedog AGM, AECC Aberdeen, 21/06/14. Black with a well appointed dirty tan head that retains well. Nose is big roast malt, dark chocolate, bourbon pangs, oaky wood. Taste comprises rich chocolate, subtle bourbon, rich dark maltings, molasses, toffee fudge. Full bodied, fine carbonation, fuzzy boozey warmth in the close. Cracking impy - well balanced, easy drinking for 15% which is well masked.
