3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

Black beer with whisky and wood aroma very present but easier to drink than expected for its 15% vol. The head brown and disappears leaving a good brown lacing. Good Imperial Stout from my "neighbours" in this my first day here.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vinspecialisten, Aalborg. Sweet, roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla and light whisky. Flavor is very sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish with lots of warming alcohol. Oily. Surprisingly harmonious for a whisky barrel aged impy from Brewdog. 30815

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice sweet imperial stout, with dark chocolate, roast and noticeable whisky character.

had the bottle for over a year, it expired 4 months ago... finally tasting: black. fine brownish foam. malty, molasses smell, maybe hint of licorice. very sweet taste. caramel, buttery taste at first. fine perlage lightens up. over time dark chocolate taste develops, spirit carries cherry. slight roast aromas as sweetness subsides. strong alcohol/spirit mouth feel. maybe it got even better with the extra bottle time...

Loving Brew Dog. This Paradox Isle of Arran in a 330ml bottle was not what I expected. A very bold creation, strong, very high alcohol rate. Its a totally super strong imperial stout, a strong coffee flavour, toasted, earthy, but most of all, very salty! They taste of soy bean sauce could not get out of my mind. I tryed to get rid off it but could not. It is super strong. Its a complex beer. Not what I was looking for.
