Hoppy_Luke (1802) - Poznań, POLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Z okazji Dnia Świętego Patryka postanowiłem otworzyć długo czekającego na swoją kolej Paradoxa! Jest to Imperial Stout leżakowany w beczkach po whisky z regionu Islay. Czarne, oleiste, z niewielką, ulotną, beżową pianą. Aromat mocno czekoladowy. Do tego nieco rodzynek i zapach kojarzący się z whisky. W smaku przyjemne rozgrzewanie. Alkohol mimo, iż jest go dużo, nie jest natarczywy, absolutnie nie przeszkadza. Whisky bardziej wyraźne niż w aromacie. Czekolada i ciemne owoce uderzają coraz intensywniej w miarę ogrzewania piwa. Świetne, ciekawe piwo. Na spokojny wieczr, do picia bez pośpiechu, gdyż każdy łyk to niepowtarzalne doznania!

Lhev 330 ml. Aroma je vrazně znt po whiskey a dubu s vraznm ndechem alkoholu. Pěna je světle hněd, jemn, vysok a drc. Barva samotnho piva je temn. Chuť m vrazn ndech dubovch silic a jemně splenho dřeva, fini je vrazně alkoholov. V stech pivo působ robustně, m středn řz a je hůře piteln. Jedn se o velmi zajmav barelovan imperial stout, kter rozhodně stoj za ochutnn.

SinH4 (4563) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2015
Black color, amber highlights, with small tan ring. Aroma of booze, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, dark fruits. Taste is sweet and rich, spicy ginger sticks, a hint of salty fudge, liquorice, chocolate, dark fruits (not too much though) and with a hot and spicy booze burn in the end (but more chili-like than really boozy). Very smooth carbonation, with small bubbles that give some sort of fizziness to it. A real winner!

Fles gedeeld met lachneger. Pikzwart geen schuim. Aroma is zoet. Smaak is chocolade, koffie. De alcohol proef je minimaal door de zoetheid. Het is een mooi bier maar de zoetheid is te.
