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!

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.
