DAY 2

PARADOX COMPASS BOX by BREWDOG 


15% Imperial Stout
A lovely subtle smokiness was released as soon as the cap was popped,releasing a thick,black beer that oozed into the glass,swirling clouds of toffee coloured bubbles fighting to draw your attention whilst it settled,leaving just the feint reminder of what was once a head.

Luxurious mouthfeel full of roasted dark chocolate with the slight oak smokiness from the whisky barrel (apparently aged for 221 days in Compass Box Great King St barrels) giving a lovely warmness around the finish…can just imagine sitting in front of a roaring log fire,watching the snow fall outside and just losing yourself in this beer.
