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.

@Nedre Mölla 23/2-14. Flaska frĺn Kihoskh, Köpenhamn. En öl med massor av arom och smak, helt jävla underbar! Rostad malt, choklad, banan, vanilj, torkad frukt, lakrits, hög sötma, whisky, alkoholvärmande, fyllig och oljig i konsistensen/munkänslan.

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.

Sissio (543) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JUL 14, 2014
Clear dark brown, minimal brown thick head. Sweetish riasted malts with a hint if ginger and a woody aftertaste for a complex and fully bodied pampering experience

Black color, tiny head. Aroma of nuts, coffee, bitter chocolate, whiskey, cask, coconut, anise, cinnamon, vanilla. Taste is medium sweet, quite complex. Medium to full body, creamy texture, soft to flat carbonation. Amazing

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 Viscose, oily and rich. Beautiful oak and vanilla flavours. The best imperial stout I’ve had.

Det er dog det vildeste. Mřrk og dyb og utrolig komplex. Dette er en řl der tager tid, da den er utrolig fyldig. Smagen er uhyre godt sammensat og whisky třnden komplimenterer overvćldende. Dybt olieret og lćkker lćkker eftersmag!!

Bottle: Black colour, with a big brown head. Aroma is dominateds of caramelly,raisins,,smokey,coffee and portviny, and barrel/woody. Flavor had a fantastic mix of vanilla,coffee,raisins,woody,and portviny and dark choclate. Big body, and a long fruity mixed finish! Complex and nice!
