jw0406 (1229) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2016
2008 bottle pours a black color with no head. Aromas of scotch, chocolate, roasted malt. Full bodied, a wonderful beer that could be aged even longer. Balanced beautifully.

Black with whispy tan head. Aroma is choclately with a lot of scotch a a sweetness that is almost sherrylike. Medium thick, fairly smooth, chocolate up front with a lot of scotch in the finish and a hint of the sherrylike sweetness. Finish is just a bit astringent. Nearly flat.

Tried this in a long string of dark beers, but it was an easy drinker for 10%. Not sure the price I paid was worth it, but I would like to try it again on its own. Rich and smooth.

Drank from the bottle. Aroma of soy sauce and black molasses with chocolate and coffee as an afterthought. Light and watery on the palate with soy sauce, mild cocoa, and light roast coffee. Aged in a 1970 Glen Grant cask? Sounds impressive but theres not much bourbon flavor to speak of. Maybe Im ruined after three BCBS cherry rye tonight. Its ok but simply mediocre.

jeremytoni (3040) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - DEC 5, 2012
From a bottle poured a dark brown/black color with almost no head. Syrupy sweet toasted malty flavor with a lasting aftertaste.

BVery (10122) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle. Very dark pour with minimal head. Chocolate, lactose, and whiskey really come out in this one. Some mild oak elements.

piscator34 (2408) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
Botted sample via and shared with oakbluff. Dark brown in colour with fairly low carbonation. Aromas are of faint milk chocolate, mild whisky, and mellow pale malts. Smooth and light bodied in the mouth, with some rounder oak barrel elements mixing with the light coffee and chocolate notes. A bit on the stale side, but the scotch character has blended nicely.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2012
A whisky drinkers beer and one of the best of the Paradoxes to cross this gullet. I expected a Glen Grant headbutt and was pleasantly surprised. This is seductively easing drinking. Terrific appearance: thick head showing good length and big lace. Surprisingly soft aroma for this style - oaky memories of your granddads armchair, attic dust, empty whisky bottles and Milo chocolate drinks. Superb silken mouthfeel. Soft caffe latte and vanilla notes through the front of the palate. Much more refined than some of its brothers in the Paradox family. Sweet brown sugar and a terrific alcoholic bite as it glazes the throat. Lovely stuff. (BB 2/2/20)
