BrewDog Paradox Isle of Arran
From BrewDog – Paradox Isle of Arran is Stout Aged in Isle of Arran Whisky Barrels – This Imperial stout has been matured in specially selected Islay Malt Whisky Casks. The aging process infuses into the beer all the threatening smoke, the encapsulating peat, the Atlantic essence and raw power of Scotland’s most distinctive Whiskies.
BrewDog – BrewDog Paradox Isle of Arran – On tap, poured into a tulip. 10% abv. Served at at 38 degrees Alhambra, CA.
Appearance: Dark brown with a thin creamy tan film. Leaves a creamy web of lace behind.
Aroma: A mixture of milk chocolate and scotch whiskey. As it warmed, I got lots of freshly dissected vanilla bean and graham cracker.
Taste: Roasted malt, vanilla, semi-sweet chocolate, booze soaked wood. Finishes with a roasty twang.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, thick with a moderate level of carbonation.
Overall: A pretty amazing beer, super tasty. I would imagine this beer would improve with age.
