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.

Lele (264) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 6, 2015
ASPETTO: nero impenetrabile, schiuma abbastanza fine, poco spessa e poco persistente, di color marrone. AROMA: gli aromi predominanti sono il whiskey, insieme al barricato e al cioccolato. GUSTO: il whisky si sente chiaramente, accompagnato da un ottimo barricato, cioccolato. Il tostato si sente un po’ nel retrogusto caldo e persistente. Si avvertono anche ciliegie sotto spirito. Carbonizzazione scarsa, corpo decisamente strutturato, denso, quasi masticabile. L’alcool scalda bene alla gola, ma non da minimamente alla testa. CONCLUSIONE: decisamente un capolavoro, una delle birre migliori in assoluto che abbia bevuto. Ogni sorso č una scoperta e un vero piacere. Calda, avvolgente, saporita, non stanca mai, dal corpo denso.

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

@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.

zenonn (41) - - FEB 25, 2014
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 (961) - 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

una delle migliori birre mai provate. Un’imperial stout, scura e densa con una schiuma sottile ma persistente. Al palato sentori di caramello, cioccolato e il caratteristico tocco di affumicato di alcuni whisky torbati. Ottima per il fine pasto in sostituzione di un vino liquoroso. Simile alla Tokyo ma leggermente meno alcolica e di gusto piů morbido. Consigliatissima.

Pours a smooth pitch black with no head. Initial thick malty aromas from slightly chilled developing through to subtle whisky peat as it warmed. Rich full mouth feel, lingering on the palate. Deep chocolate flavours. Great with desert
