Great looking bottle and even comes in a box. Pours very black with a champagne like head that vanishes very quickly. Very rich, complex, sweet, christmas flavours. With a Cpt. Morgans dark-like finish. Really glad I got the chance to try this, amazing.

Bottles enjoyed on 2 consecutive summer nights at the BrewDog in Bristol. I had tried BrewDog beers before and been relatively unimpressed (their entry level beers) concluding them to be over-hyped. I should not have been so quick to judge based upon those. This beer is amazing. If Im not drinking a beer, I drink rum, so maybe Im somewhat biased, though that said other rum matured beers Ive tried have not really impressed me. And at 11 a bottle this one almost didnt get a chance to. But I ventured in and am so glad I did, as I would go as far as to say this was one of the best beers I have tried. This was like drinking liquidised chocolate Caribbean Rum Cake. Rum, chocolate, caramel, coffee, truffles and more rum in a beer. One for sipping not downing. One for savouring. And savour it I did.

A BrewDog Paradox-sorozata karcsonyi darabjnak mr a klleme is valami fenomenlis zlmnyt szavatol, rulkod megjelense cscskaliberű főzet testet ltst hirdeti. Mlyfekete, olajos teste sziruposan folyik a pohrba, srgsbarna habja pedig tovbb fokozza a vizulis lmnyt. A himaljai magaslatokra trtnő flkapaszkods jegyben eltelő percek a semmihez nem foghat illatradat berobbansval kezdődnek, melyek teljessggel bearanyozzk az innentől kezdve mr biztosra vetten mennyei zekhez vezető svnyt. Kolibrisznű aromi a ltező legelemibb jelleggel trnek rnk, azt az rzetet keltve a letaglzott szemllőben, hogy ennl intenzvebb hatst termszetes ton mr nem lehet elrni. A legsűrűbb imperial stout-aromk keretben az antik fahords jegyekkel titatott, tlrett s olvasztott csokoldban megforgatott gymlcsk, az elmaradhatatlan vanlia s egy letagadhatatlan rumos bets lp a sznre, mindez ezerfle sorrendben s vltozatban, egyszerűen lerhatatlan. A testessg netovbbja trul elnk aztn, mr a sznkban megforgatva is des, mint egy likőrben sz aszaltgymlcs-kosr csokoldval fogyasztva, puha s selymesen cssz testnek minden egyes kortya varzslatosan soksznű, az alkohol kellemesen bizsergető jellege pedig hatrozottan, de nem tolakodan egyengeti az zfolyam kacskarings tjt. Taln volt mr r alkalom, hogy ezt nyilatkoztam, de amennyiben ez mr megtrtnt, most ismt nagyon kzel llok hozz, hogy kimondjam, ez a legjobb sr, amit letemben ittam.

csakajosor.hu + Ksznet Armando! Stt, mint a politikusok lelke s valsznűleg a habjt is ők loptk el. Illata tele van aszalt gymlcskkel, főleg rumba ztatott mazsolval, amibe vanlia s egy kis kaka is van, aromsabb pipadohny, egy kis kvbab, prklt malta, fűszerek, medvecukor, kemnyfa fst s koml. ze is brutlis, adja az illatoktl vrtat, tele van kivl minősgű, reg rummal, rengeteg aranymazsolval, sok fűszerrel, desgykrrel, bocskorszjjal, aszalt meggyel s szilvval s pipadohnyfsttel. Sűrű, de nem ragads, van benne egy kis bubi is. Utze keserdes, rumos s igen hosszan tart. Ritka csemege, de ha valaki nem szereti a rumot, annak nem ajnlott. ber!

Well first to review, I couldnt wait until Christmas to try this one. This was poured into a very large brandy snifter. Colour is very dark brown to black with a small dark tan head, which dissipated quickly. On the nose is Rum, Rum and more Rum, Molasses, burnt sugar and sweet alcohol. Mouthfeel is thinner than expected with an initial champagne like carbonation. Taste is muted compared to the smell but with the same elements (Rum, burnt sugar, sweet, roasted malts) and not as alcoholic as I thought it would be. Overall a great beer. I cant wait to try the Isle of Arran version of this.

Bottle, thanks Craig. Black with tan head that fades to ring. Aroma of rum and licorice, slightly fruity, fig and dates. Taste is rich licorice and molasses, ovaltine, very little rum, some chocolate on the finish. Deliciously thick and sweet. Excellent.

Pours a very dark brown colour with a fair tan head. A huge rum aroma with raisins, blackcurrants, dark chocolate, coconut, christmas pudding, oak and alcohol. Similar flavours with nicely balanced alcohol and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely!
