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.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - OCT 22, 2013
Pours black and opaque, thin beige foam head. No retention. RIS typical profile (raisins, roasted malt, chocolate and rye) but not evident whisky cask notes. Creamy, very low carbonation. Liquorice, roasted, chocolate, sherry/brandy flavours. Alcohol heat, mid-length. Too sweet. Good for quite winter nights.

Ptrck (9) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2013 does not count
Bottle at home (bought at Bierwinkel, Leiden (NL). Deep dark color, with a little creamy head. Smells after coffee, chocolate, a little smoke and vanilla. Coffee, dark chocolate, whisky, caramel, roasted malts and oak in the taste. The 15% alcohol is obvious, but not disturbing.

WilleLW (177) - Lund, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2013
Pitch black colour with a beige creamy head. Fantastic aroma of whisky malt, soy, alcohol, oak, vanilla and a light smell of roasted malt with dark chocolate. Heavy taste of coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and some wood/oak with a sting of warming alcohol and whisky. An oily, thick mouthfeel.

Mooie zwarte kleur met een crèmekleur kraag. Lekkere zoetige vanille geur met iets koffie en caramel. Lekkere zware smaak. Vanille, iets van toffee en caramelsmaak. Heeft ook een rokerig tintje. Lekkere brandende nasmaak.

severus (33) - ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2013
Totally black, almost headless (note the ABV). Complex aroma of coffee, roastiness, whiskey, chocolate, smoke and caramel. Medium dry taste with all of the things that You can catch in aroma and even more. Soft carbonated, leaves a aftertaste of a strong chocolate liquor. Great.

Abijen (1422) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2013
Pours a beautiful black beer with a not very big brown head. Smells coffee, burned and bit alcoholic. Tastes great. Vanilla, coffee, burned and alcoholic. Low carbo. Thick body and a sticky texture. Good beer but a bit to much alcohol.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle, pours black. Tastes like a subtle sherry cask whisky without the burn. The alcohol is almost not there, this is a 15% beer that tastes like a 6% beer.So subtle in all respects so balanced, everything works so well together.
