The aroma is woody with suggestions of nuts, raisins, vanilla and burnt sugar. In the mouth the whiskey associations appear along with burnt flavors, toast, vanilla, smoke and rye. It starts with a slight sweetness and is lightly carbonated. The mouthfeel is mid-sized with some alcohol warming, ending a bit sweet. Interesting and bold, but not overwheming.

Comments: A smooth version, my favourite of the 3 Paradox I’ve tried up to now with a finer balance between scotch and beer, also less of a disagreeable corny undertone and no iodine. Good balance, fuller bodied and cleaner.
Cask @ St. Albans BF. Deep mahogany with an off white head. Roasted malt, dark chocolate and peaty whiskey nose. Taste is much the same with liquorice and coffee notes and a long warming whiskey finish. Brew Dog can do no wrong. chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2007
bottle thanks again magic_dave6! -Poured oily black with a tan head that disperses quite fast, aromas, whiskey rich chocolate ake, raisins figs, and other dark fruits. tastes chocolate cake, berries, and dark fruit lots of whiskey warming in the back of the throat.a bit more watery on the palate than the other two. sugary sweet. the one with the least whiskey tste, but i still like the grain whisky one the most. still a great beer.

The Paradox beers are very very good.
I still slightly prefer the Grain whisky one but they are both amazing.
pours gorgeously and wickedly dark, deep, thick and rich with a lovely head.
the flavours reminded me of toffee apples and fudge brownies with a balancing rip dark fruit bitter tingle to finish it off. speyside whisky flavours written all over it.

Cask, Peterborough Fest 07. Black with no head. Aromas are mollasses with earthy malts. Dark syrup with pine hops. Rich some smoky notes. Flavours are very rch and malty with roast coffee notes and dark chocolate. Gritty and smoky with an oily palate. Addictive and powerful. RoyceH (1200) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 30, 2007
Cask, Blackfriars, Glasgow, RBESG 07. Very dark ruby, thin film of tan head. Nose is imperial stout maltiness, slightly sweet with some grainy, slightly peaty, salty seaweed. Mouth is malty, salty seaweed, touch fo sweet alcohol, menthol and vanilla. Some fruitiness in there. Palate lasts salty and vanilla, with a bit of sweetness too for balance. Absolutely superb.
