Geiserich (3695) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAY 30, 2010
Bottled: Dark brown color and a low beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, scotch, dark fruits. Flavor is malty, light sweet and with intensive notes of roasted malt. Notes of smoke, scotch, licorice, burnt wood and chocolate. Light bitter finish. Very intensive, tasty beer.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - APR 23, 2010
Pours pitch black with no noticable head. Aroma is scotch, sherry, roasted malt, vanilla, some oak. Smelled like heaven. Flavor was rich and full. Roast with some definite highland scotch notes. Mouthfeel was just a little thin but not really a knock on the beer. Really nice marriage of flavors.

Wow- abolutely wonderful. The Macallan cask really imparts balance to this stout from the sherry. There is a lot of toasted malt and good chocolate that melds very well wth the oak and sherry. I had big. hopes for this and I was very well rewarded. Wish I could have had more of this.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Pretty elegant for BrewDog beer. Over the dark roasted base are layered notes of peat and dried fruit from the Macallan Sherry Cask. Not overbearing.

Jet black pour in the snifter, no head really. Scent of malt and booze but its very slight. Taste is smooth with a slight booze bite, some malt/coffee and molassess. Good stuff.

TheBeerGod (5568) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Bottle. Black pour with little to no head. Mainly spotty bubbles on the surface. Aroma is wood, dark fruit, light roasted malt, coffee, and vanilla. Taste is strong vanilla, roasted malt, dark fruits, alcohol, light molasses, and watery cocoa. Body is light medium with no carbonation feel and a soft alcohol warmth. Ends with more dark fruit, vanilla, coffee, roasted malt, alcohol and wet wood.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Dark pour, with more head than the others I’ve had of the series. The aroma is sweet, malt, and more peat. The flavor is quite pleasant with the sweetness and malt up front and some peat to make is balanced in a Scotch sort of way. The palate is livelier than others in the series. Overall, I like it quite well.

Bottle thanks to Rciesla for sharing. Black pour with tan head. Woody sherry notes, chocolate, cherry and warming. One of the better paradox batches.

Served from a 12 oz bottle from the Liquor Collection in Honolulu. The appearance is a translucent deep dark brown. The sherry characters really come through with some nice sweet fruit flavors that ride on the roasted malt flavors. The cask flavors are mild in intensity and add a nice touch. The mouth feels a little thin but super smooth. The Paradox beers are always tasty but not always worth the price.

blipp (6949) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours near black with a thin beige and bubbly head. Scotch and roasted malts up front in the aroma with some sweet dark chocolate notes. The flavor is smooth and restrained, light roasted malts, scotch, a bit of a dried fruit sweetness, and dark chocolate, followed by a nice roasty finish.
