17thfloor (2433) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2010
(bottle batch 010 best by 12/12/09) Cellar temp. Pours a slightly murky thin darker cola color with a small thin bubbly light tan head. Aroma is a bit fruity, hint of smoke, salt, english yeast, dry chocolate maybe. Flavor is quite a bit more delicious, has a fruity quality, lots of tobacco and super similar to a well aged trappist, dry smoke, dry smooth chocolate, lovely balanced scotch aftertaste, great balance, love the dryness, super smooth and milky but extremely drinkable. Medium bodied, thinner, not sticky, easy drinking, milky sensation, faint larger carbonation. Delicious and possibly my favorite of the 3 I’ve tried so far!!!! For certain my favorite so far, very smooth and balanced, aged well, chocolate, tobacco, light fruit, and balanced scotch, love it!.

asheft (2551) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2010
[bottle--thanks, fonefan!; says Speyside, batch 017] Aroma is vinous chocolate and coffee enveoloped in a whisky barrel vanilla and peat. Thick, opaque black appearance with light brown ring and wisps. Biscuity and cereal grainy malt flavour are complimented well by the gentle peat and vanilla oak accents. Not off balance at all. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, liquorice comes in the finish with gentle dark malt bitterness.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Pours nearly solid black with a creamy light brown head that fades into a small ring. Aroma of mild whiskey, chocolate malt, vanilla, oat, molasses, raisin, honey, smoke. Taste is deliciously roasty with a mild buttery texture that is not over the top like some barrell beers. Finishes with a slight cocoa/hop bitterness. Soft and smooth texture, dynamic.

Bottle. [thank you, cgarvieuk]
Pours deep brown with a small, creamy, beige head. Fair lacing and okay duration. Sweet aroma, some bitter chocolate and very light whiskey-notes. Some tar, oak, vanilla, coffee as well. Low carbonation, fine and dry creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is surprisingly bitter and dry, not as velvety as some other Paradox. Coffee, chocolate, hops, oak, tannins, hard roasted malts. Fine, lingering bitter coffee finish with light whiskey notes. Nice.
