Imperial Stout aged in American Bourbon Barrels for 12 months. A schizophrenic translatlantic son of a bitch of a beer. Huge, decadent imperial stout clashes in the most beautiful way with the best incarnation of the American Dream since Nixon choked on a cheeseburger. We think this might just be the best Paradox ever. Available in both keg and bottle.

Clear dark black color with a small to average, frothy - creamy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing to lasting, beige head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, coffee, raisin, plum, prune, soy sauce, alcohol, licorice.

Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic. [20141013]

[email protected] IX. More or less pitch black colour with a small brown head. Aroma is liquorice, some barrel, mild alcohol and some mild toasted notes. Flavour is liquorice, some alcohol, vanilla, wooden notes as well as some quite burnt sugary sweetness. A bit too sweet, but otherwise rather delicate.

Keg at BrewDog Camden - London. Pours thick, oily black with a creamy, beige head. Quite decadent on the nose, lots of gooey chocolate, burnt marshmallows and toffee, some stewed dark fruits. This is definitely a sweet beer but I wouldn’t say cloying, with an edge of dry, torched barrel, moderate alcohol presence, burnt toast, dark chocolate, ripe cherries. Full bodied with fine carbonation and creamy texture. Warm, almost hot on the finish with prominent burnt wood character, dried out dark fruits, raisins, dates, some molasses, decent chocolate. Ballsy stuff but I really like it.

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Almost black with a brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, chocolate, wood and bourbon. Flavor is very sweet and very bitter. Dry and very bitter finish with lots of alcohol. Oily. 251014

From trade with fonefan, many thanks!
33cl botte. Pours very dark brown black with a nice lasting tan head. Aroma of burned malt, wood, coffee, vanilla, some alcohol. Taste is intense malty, tons of vanilla, coffee, burned malt, some alcohol, very delicious, perfect beer!

Keg at Brewdog aka Queuedog AGM, AECC Aberdeen, 21/06/14. Black with a well appointed dirty tan head that retains well. Nose is big roast malt, dark chocolate, bourbon pangs, oaky wood. Taste comprises rich chocolate, subtle bourbon, rich dark maltings, molasses, toffee fudge. Full bodied, fine carbonation, fuzzy boozey warmth in the close. Cracking impy - well balanced, easy drinking for 15% which is well masked.

harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
On tap at Brewdog Shoreditch London Bimble. Black beer lasting tan head. Lots of intense imp stout aroma. Lots of chocolate cocoa. Good if a tad boozy.

mcberko (17823) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
330mL bottle, pours black with a smalls brown head. Aroma is very complex, with bourbon barrels, oak and wood not interesting. Flavour brings out loads of bourbon, booze and alcohol. The ABV is not masked in any way. An abrasive bourbon bomb that is a pleasure to drink.

TBone (17530) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottled 330ml (PBF IX)
Dark opaque, small brownish head. Roasted, vanilla aroma. Medium-bodied. Lots of whiskey, dark malts, not much vanilla in the flavor. Quite raw flavor. If you like whisky, you may like this.
