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.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 Bottle, at Vinspecialisten, Aalborg. Almost black, topped by a small dense, light tan colored head. Molasses, coffee, some chocolate and roasted malts in the aroma. Alcohol too. It’s pretty warming on the palate, full bodied and soft. Caramel, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses and alcohol in the flavor, some roasted kind of bitterness. Lasting finish. A pleasant one indeed, tasteful too, but so warming it’s probably best for sharing. 140228

Igen komoly sör, szinte mintha egy pohár gépolaj lenne, olyan sűrű és fekete, valamicske kis barnás habkrémmel a tetején. Az illata és íze erősen malátás, likőrös, whiskys, kis vaniliával, tán karamellel is, no meg kávéval és pörkölt keserűséggel. Szeretni való imperial stout, bár nem pintes pohárba való.

MrHangover (2762) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle @ Dean to Mouth tasting, courtesy of dEnk. Pours a very dark brown, blackish beer with a thin ring of beige head on top. Aroma is mostly roasted malts, slight peat and smoke. Touches of vanilla and caramel are faded in the background, which is quite nice. Flavor is fairly sweet with loads of peaty touches in there as well. Slight bitter aftertaste, cloying mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice impy stout!

Bottle at THT. Pours dark brown to black. Aroma is booze, whiskey, malty, chocolate, big licorice and some coffee. Taste is very sweet, moderate bitter. Again, boozey. Full bodied with oily texture and would definitely have again.

Solid black wig a tan lacy lasting head. Smells of deep chocolate malt with deep malt, roast and lots of raisins. Full malty body. Tastes of sweet malt, lots of chocolate deep toast and lots of malt. Amazing body. Delicious. And super easy to drink.
