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.

LoFi (1637) - 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.

stefannilssons (1510) - SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2013
Det här var en mycket angenäm upplevelse, svart som natten och kraftigare än kraftig. Smaken bar toner av choklad och en dov fruktighet dessutom var den välbalanserad.

[Ölprovning @ my place 20130301] Hade svårt för Paradox Juran, denna var en aning bättre men. Skriver inte mycket mer, sattsar att dubbeldrickas vid senare tillfälle. Tror om jag ger den 1år till så.....

Countbeer (5034) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle: Thanks James: Batch 306: Medium sized airy but vast tan beige colored foamy head on top of a pitch black colored beer. Complex aromas of roasted malts, whiskey, molasses, oatmeal, raisin, some liquorice, rye/bread, toffee, a sprinkle of caramel and sticky thick autumnal herbs. Flavours are also complex, a mix of molasses, sticky sweets, bitters, spices, some roasted sticky malts, bay leaf, raisin, hint of yeast, oatmeal, roasted barley malts, hint of prunes, autumnal herbs, hint of whiskey and toffee. Aftertaste is sticky sweet with a good fuller bitterness, roast, autumnal herbs, malts and spices. Low carbo, soft smooth almost silky mouthfeel, full body and a creamy oily texture. Really good balanced and smoother than most American sweet Imperial Stouts.

Wow. Pours jet black with a small light brown head. Nose is vanilla, coffee, peat, dark fruit. Mouthfeel is creamy as hell, with a fantastic silky texture. Taste is extremely balanced with copious amounts of vanilla with plum, dried fruit, whisky, brown sugar and espresso. Sublime. Bottle from Systembolaget.
