COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Paradox Isle of Arran = Stout Aged in Isle of Arran Whisky Barrels - This Imperial stout has been matured in specially selected Islay Malt Whisky Casks. The aging process infuses into the beer all the threatening smoke, the encapsulating peat, the Atlantic essence and raw power of Scotland’s most distinctive Whiskies.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of joergen. Pours an opaque black with a thick and creamy light brown head leaving quite some lacework. Thick sweet roasted malts and lovely whisky notes. The booze is up there too. Rich and filling body, sweet chocolate, subtle roast and a touch of vanilla. Sweet whisky notes but only subtle wood. Warming alcohol finish. Wauw! 220413

brontebeach (172) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2013
Black with tan heads that disappears quite quickly. Raisins and biscuit on the nose for me, in the mouth reasonably balanced, smooth and with little evidence of the 15%. Not complex but with a whisky dose to finish. Good to have one in the cupboard.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - APR 7, 2013
Very mellow Impy. Hides 15% really well. Not a great deal of flavour, some vanilla, whisky, chocolate and dark fruit and a hint of smoke. Again, not overly expressive and a tad reserved.

beer_est_deus (906) - örebro, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2013
Svart öl med brunt skum. Doft: Mörk choklad, kola, sött kaffe, skogs jord, torkad exotisk frukt, rostad mandel. Smak: Honungs melon, kaffe, omogen mango, humle, mörk choklad, lite rökt korv. Blir nästan lite för mycket kakao i eftersmaken.

danlo (1637) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2013
330ml bottle. Black ruby tinged colour, light brown head that dissipates away and sweet aroma of toffee with chocolate, vanilla and whisky. Taste is sweet malt, raisins, toffee, dark chocolate, with a spicy woody edge through to a boozy whisky finish. Oily warming mouth feel, full bodied, soft carbonation. Quite drinkable.

Keg at BD Camden, 19/03/13. Light black/dark mahogony brown in light with a dirty tan head. Nose carries a big booze soaked punch, dark treacle toffee, chocolate pudding, wood, whisky fumes. Taste comprises brown sugars, whisky, background chocolate, toasted marshmallows, woody notes, booze. Full bodied, slightly cloying on the palate but eminently drinkable, warming alcohol in the finish, Decent BA Imperial Stout.

LoFi (1678) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle. Black with a small light brown head. Aroma: whisky, roasted, licorice, dark chocolate. Taste: toffee, quite a lot of whisky, chocolate, honey, a bit boozy, vanilla, syrup, light spices. Full-bodied. Probably should have left this to age for a while, this is too sweet and a bit too boozy at the moment.
