UPDATED: JAN 23, 2014 Dark black red body. Small beige head. Aroma reminds me of bourbon or port. Some smokiness. Sweet taste. Oily texture. A bit flat. For 10% alcohol is not overpowering. I like it. Maxbier (986) - Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Aroma of port and oak. Hint of smoke, prunes, roasted malts, and cognac. Very sweet. Bottled 08/08/08, tasted 12/31/13; definitely aged too long, flat and no hop flavor left. dlovell2 (2134) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Dark brown with a tan head. Fermented grape aroma with a dark chocolate background. Malty flavor with coffee notes and some dark chocolate flavors. No hops flavor present. This one was a little flat. MarcoDL (4926) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2013
Ridicilously strong tasting beer. Beer has notes of dark roasted malt and coffee. The whiskey flavors of the barrel aging gives the beer a warm and complex richness. Very good. Piero1987 (686) - Iglesias, ITALY - NOV 15, 2013
Dark brown with beige big head. Nice light chocolate aroma, also wood and alchol. At taste is light sweet and dry, liqueur flavour with long persistence.

Bottle @ delirium pub Merate. Colore marrone scuro, opalescente, con abbondante schiuma beige molto fine e cremosa all’aspetto. Profumo complesso.Intenso di alcolico lievemente torbato, nulla a che vedere con la Smokehead, note di caffè freddo, frutta sotto spirito, legno e tostato. Gusto in linea coi profumi, in evidenza il caffè , si avverte un lupopolatura che al naso era nascosta dalla prepotenza degli altri aromi. Di corpo un po’ debole per lo stile. Non riempie la bocca come ci si aspetterebbe, non ha quella sensazione di liquoroso delle altre paradox. Inbreak (6025) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2013

Nice slightly brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is mild and balanced, dark malts, oak, alcohol, cocoa, licorice, dark sugar, coffee. Taste is mild and slightly sour-ish dry, dark malts, oak, licorice, alcohol, sour coffee, grass, cocoa. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Nice. This one has aged really nice, and is now very balanced where it used to be really sweet and all over the place some years ago.
This bottle was from 2008. The aroma was predominantly whiskey and wood. This was coal black with virtually no head. What fizz it had was pretty much gone. Thankfully, it didn’t affect my enjoyment. Smooth a creamy with very little carbonation. Taste was of chocolate, wood and whiskey. Some roasted flavors hiding in the back. Good and interesting.

Finish is coffee, wood, vanilla. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, weak carbonation. Pretty solid. kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2013
