Cask at Blackfriars, Glasgow - had several pints of this over two days at RBESG 2007. Aged in Glen Moray casks. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet amlty with strong notes of roasted malt and whiskey. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of alcohol, whiskey, and roasted malt, as well as hints of smoke. I found it a bit sharp on the alcohol the first night, and much more mellow on the second - which made it very drinkable. joergen (28142) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007

Bottled (Ölkonsortiet, Aalborg). Very deep amber, close to black colour. Not much head. Aroma is vanilla, leather, caramel and some slight smoked notes. Flavour is vanilla, malts, hops, wood and some slight notes of alcohol. omhper (25128) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2007
Cask at Blackfriars, Glasgow. Black, no head. Aroma of tar and licorice. Sweet and boldly malty with lots of substance. There’s chocolate and asphalt. The whisky is much less evident than in the other versions of Paradox that I’ve tried. It’s also more balanced. That however takes some of the curiousity away, so I’m not really sure if I prefer it more than those. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of Myrup. Pours a dark brown with a tint of red and a tiny, off-white head. Lightly sweet aroma of roasted malt. Medium body with sweetish, roasted malt - not particularly burned - with some hot whisky accents. Not peaty smoke, oak or vanilla - just hot, burning alcohol. Some malt bitterness in the finish. 291107 madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2009
23rd August 2008. Strong but smooth whiskey dominates and produces a notably hot finish. The chocolate and coffee support all the whiskey very well. Unapologetically a whiskey beer! cgarvieuk (24499) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2007
