Bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo, batch #306, enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown, black in glass, thin tanned head with nice lacings. Smells of oak, whisky, booze, wanilla and some malts. Taste is heavy sweet, , distinct liquorice flavors and caramel, chocolate, roasted malts and oak in the back. Smooth mouthfeel, full bodied. Heavy bitter finish. This is a very good Paradox. A bit better than the Jura and the former Arran i would say. Very nice!

Holmen1 (5366) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2016
Flaske hjemme (min rating nr. 5000!), delt med Ovesen: brunsvart med kort skum. Heftig og begeistret aroma og smak av de mrkeste malter og sjokolader, vanilje, eik, whisky, snev av torvryk og et kledelig streif av solbrsdme. Vidunderlig balansert, suveren munnflelse og laaang ettersmak. Alkovarme i magen, men etter endt brygging kl. 21 er det bare deilig. Et perfekt valg for feire en rb-milepl. Diagnosen er fortsatt intakt.

Butelka. Barwa czarna, smolista, nieprzejrzysta. Piana bardzo skromna, beżowa. W aromacie mocna dawka nut beczki po whiskey. Dominują nuty torfowe, nuty dymne, mokre drewno, jakiej lekkie owoce. Pod przykryciem beczki wyłania się duża dawka czekolady, słodw, ciemnych owocw. W smaku rwnież dominują nuty torfowe, dymne, cygarowe, kakao. Bardzo długie posmaki, przyjemnie zalegające, dodatkowo bardzo rozgrzewające. Wysycenie niskie, goryczka niska. Alkohol szybko uderza do głowy pomimo bardzo wolnego sączenia. Trzeba przyznać, że alko jest genialnie ukryty. Piwo niesamowicie bogate, kompleksowe, wyraziste. Beczka bardzo mocna i wyrazista nadaje charakter lecz nie przytłacza pozostałych smakw. Rewelacja!!

mateuszk (2513) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle. Pitch black, oily with small beige head. Aroma of whisky, peat, dark chocolate roastiness. In taste again mainly roasted malts and peated whisky, sweet and full bodied. Very nice oily texture, bitter finish with noticable and warming booze. Great beer.

Nera con schiuma sottile. Aroma spettacolare di vaniglia, con intense note alcoliche. Al palato lalcol spinge molto, con liquirizia, dark fruits e vaniglia a farla da padrone. Cioccolato avvolgente, corpo pieno ma consistenza non troppo oleosa. Davvero super.
