COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, Special;
Port Dundas 1966 We set about to unite two of Scotland proudest heritages and produce a product which combined all that was good about Scotland’s whisky producing history and our contemporary take on a traditional Scottish style of stout. The fact that we have developed this product in conjunction with Duncan Taylor Ltd of Huntly means we mature our beer in the casks that once housed some of the most prestigious whiskies available today. The distinct flavours of these whiskies is beautifully infused into the beer giving a unique and unrivalled experience for both beer and whisky lovers. Paradox is produced in very small batches and each batch is bottled in a unique numbered limited edition bottle.

gdierksen (16) - Brookline, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle poured into tulip glass. Pours an oily black with a thin, darkly colored head that melts quickly. Very strong aroma of vanilla, peak and oak. This is unmistakenly cask aged. Oaky flavors up front fading to a smooth peat/smoke flavor. Long burnt chocolate finish. Mouthfeel is pretty thin and smooth. Very little bite for 10% ABV. Overall a good strong stout but it smells better than it tastes.

ebone1988 (1022) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Best before February 2, 2010, oh boy. Aroma is barrel, vanilla, roasted malt. Appearance is thin, dark brown, what head? There is no head. This beer is well past its prime. Taste is barrel and flat. Yowza. Mouthfeel is thin. No carbonation. Nothing. Like drinking watered down syrup. Overall, this was a huge mistake putting this in my body

Pours an oil black color with no head whatsoever. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, anise, super sweet malt, molasses, sticky toffee, hazelnut, milk chocolate, sweet cream. Taste is chocolate, caramel, semi-bitter black coffee, a rich caramel, toffee, dry molasses, lactic. Overall a great beer, this one seems to of been a bit past its best by date, still worth a purchase.

slowrunner77 (9223) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
"past the best by date, but you really couldn’t tell. as with all of the paradox line, kinda thin and lighter in color than most impys. partly because of that, though, smooth as silk. dark chocolate and whisky in equal measures. quite tasty as dessert or on it’s own."

salvaticas (559) - - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle pour. Pours a pitch watery black. Heavy on the nose, notes of grapes and wine. Never thought something like this could have such a bad palate. Incredibly weak, no body. Hard to put down because of this. Flavor is still there, but its not complete. Disappointing.
