I really enjoyed this. The abv made me a little skeptical of the potential heat. Surprisingly smooth for such a biggy. Nice oak presence.

A - 1/2 inch caramel head. Quickly dissipated.

S - Smooth and viscous.

T - Sweet caramel body with a prominent smokey finish.

O - Something different and wonderful. I enjoyed the sweet with the smokey finish. Like nothing I've ever had before. I'm looking forward to trying the other Paradoxes.

Poured into snifter; jet black like engine oil with a moderate brown fluffy head that fades quickly into some chunky foam and very fine lacing around the edges.
Smells very interesting...like a barleywine combined with a stout. Dark fruit dominates, with booze, coffee, chocolate, bourbon, scotch, and oak all intermingled.
Taste...damn. It overtakes your whole mouth with slick, tastefully boozy dark fruit and bourbon. Then dark bready malt mingles with coffee and chocolate and oak, slithering down the throat with sticky sweetness.
Mouthfeel is slick and thick, with a good amount of carbonation, enough to keep the body from being too cloying.
Overall, this is an awesome stout. It's really taking barrel-aging to its extreme...stout aged in barrels that were used for bourbon and then scotch. But the result is awesome.
