Bottle from Vinspecialisten, Aalborg. Sweet, roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla and light whisky. Flavor is very sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish with lots of warming alcohol. Oily. Surprisingly harmonious for a whisky barrel aged impy from Brewdog. 30815

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice sweet imperial stout, with dark chocolate, roast and noticeable whisky character.

had the bottle for over a year, it expired 4 months ago... finally tasting: black. fine brownish foam. malty, molasses smell, maybe hint of licorice. very sweet taste. caramel, buttery taste at first. fine perlage lightens up. over time dark chocolate taste develops, spirit carries cherry. slight roast aromas as sweetness subsides. strong alcohol/spirit mouth feel. maybe it got even better with the extra bottle time...

Loving Brew Dog. This Paradox Isle of Arran in a 330ml bottle was not what I expected. A very bold creation, strong, very high alcohol rate. Its a totally super strong imperial stout, a strong coffee flavour, toasted, earthy, but most of all, very salty! They taste of soy bean sauce could not get out of my mind. I tryed to get rid off it but could not. It is super strong. Its a complex beer. Not what I was looking for.

Flavor is tart, light sweet, malts, l coffee, heavy peat, iodine, heavy booze. Thin to medium body, soft carbonation, tart finish with lots of hot alcohol. Very boozy and not pleasant. 300415
