Bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo, batch #306, enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown, black in glass, thin tanned head with nice lacings. Smells of oak, whisky, booze, wanilla and some malts. Taste is heavy sweet, , distinct liquorice flavors and caramel, chocolate, roasted malts and oak in the back. Smooth mouthfeel, full bodied. Heavy bitter finish. This is a very good Paradox. A bit better than the Jura and the former Arran i would say. Very nice!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black, no head; aroma is sweet, like marmite - in fact this smells like a box of twiglets, with added cocoa and vanilla; flavour is big malty sweetness, burnt sugar, with vanilla and booze-soaked red berries, cherries and raisins; spicy and with a whiskyish alcohol burn; thick, oily; undoubtedly good, but - like the Moor Fusion I recently tried - the burn takes a bit of getting used to and I’m not sure I’m quite there yet; still, a very pleasant way to while away a Friday evening.

@ Basunen: Mycket trevlig doft med tydlig lakrits. Smaken är dock liten besvikelse. Den är ganska len på gränsen till tunn. Söt och kladdig.

Pours black with brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt, wet leather and some vanilla. Taste is quite sweet of dark chocolate, vanilla and licorice. Alcohol is very well hidden. In the finish you feel some whisky and a warming feeling of alcohol. This is a very good imperial stout.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium brown head. Opaque black body. Resiny toffee and milk
chocolate aroma with earthy mouldy notes. Dry-sweet alcoholic
honey resiny earthy taste with burnt milk chocolate, sherry and
whisky notes. Full-bodied. Sharpish, powdery mouthfeel with
some heat. Dry earthy cocoa and honey aftertaste with alcoholic
resiny notes. Interesting, powerful, and fairly harmonic, but
ultimately a bit too powerful. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly web
