Cybercat (6432) - Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2016
Pours opaque coffee brown with a fairly thick tan head. Aroma delivers bold quality coffee, roasted malt, molasses, and subtle woody, toffee and chocolate notes. Flavor presents quality roast coffee, slightly charred malt, molasses, chocolate, and a little toffee and wood - woody hop? - character. A bit of hoppy bitterness comes through in the finish. Body is firm and viscous, fizz is vigorous. "Paraiso" isn’t far from "Paradise," and you’ll feel close to Paradise if you love coffee stouts.

onceblind (11135) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2017
Black pour with a thin light khaki foamy head. Lovely deep dark malty and dark chocolaty syrup aroma with a spike of subtle coffee and roast and some kind of dark sugar. Rich flavor that’s as dark as the nose but also as chocolaty with some bittersweet dark chocolate and a little coffee roastiness throughout. Bold and slightly boozy warm but flavorful and rich.

4.2
decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Black brown pour with ruby hints. Clinging tan head and lace that lasts forever. Aroma as advertised is dominated by rich coffee. Flavor is sweet chocolate and sweet coffee. Medium full body with good carbonation. Very nice more chocolate and coffee the law allows

50belair (3718) - Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a light brown head. Lots of coffee in the nose. Loads of coffee blend with dark roasted malts and chocolate highlights. Good body and mouthfeel.

pfc514 (146) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Pours black with a light brown head. Coffee and chocolate in the aroma, but very well blended. Each doesn’t overpower the other. Really nice aroma. Coffee, bittersweet chocolate and roasted malts all mingle together, and finishes with bittersweet chocolate. Mouthfeel isn’t super thick, but not thin either. Delicious stout.
