Draft at Gingerman pour has a dark black color and a covering of brown head. Aroma has light peat, barrel wood, sweet dark fruit, mild oxidation, and malt. Mouth feel is medium with some oil and average carbonation. Flavor gets into the barrel flavors, light peat, chocolate, mild bitterness, and little alcohol for such a big beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the bottle. Pours dark, head soon goes. Considerably friskier than its 10% cousin. The same aromas and huge flavours predominate, but this mix comes across smoother to me with quite a lot of dark chocolate. Perhaps a little light in body for such a strong beer, but maybe thatís a good thing. Excellent, but their other Arran and Jura Paradox brews are better.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 330 ml bottle. Aroma very sweet, full, roasted, smoked peat and wood. Tastes very sweet, round. Almost oily texture with sharp finish. Smoother than the Jura edition

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg @ Brewdog Manchester. The pourís deep brown with a tiny head. The nose is rich peat, fruity dark chocolate, woody barrel sweetness, some salted berry. The taste is salty sweet wood, mild warming peat, toasted wood, earthy ash. Bitter chocolate-dipped dark fruits. Hot runny vanilla on the finish. Moderately boozy, but not oppressively so. Full, chewy body, viscous. Overall, quite nice.

Bottle from Brewdog shop. Black color, brown head. Strong, malty taste with salted liquorice, oak, peat, raisins, toffee, coffee and alcohol. Roasty finish with peat. Excellent imperial stout, especially if you prefer peaty Islay whisky. Could be even better with aging.
