Marko (3797) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 7, 2008
RBESG08 grand tasting.
Just a tiny sample. The body was of a quite dark brown, not much head. A smokey malty nose. Very good all round smoke that enters the taste as well, that’s sweet and malty again, notes of smoked ham. Tasty.

omhper (18970) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2008
Bottled at RBESG. Very dark brown, small beige head. Licorice aroma. Sweet and tarry with thick mouthfeel. The whisky is more restrained than in most Paradoxes, lying in the background of tar and licorice. Salty finish.

bierkoning (9835) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2008
Bottle. Almost black and opague. The aroma has dark chocolate, cream and hints of oak and peat. Malty sweet flavor with oak and peat, followed by dark chocolate and toffee. The single malt whisky is well noticed and adds to the character. Well balanced and delicious beer, maybe still a bit young.
