Paradox Jura (06/2010)

Ubiquitous Imperial Stout.

Paradox. Reloaded. In 2011 we put Paradox into high gear to create an Imperial Stout destined for ageing. Loaded with dark roasted malts for a full bodied, toasted background, an array of bitter, earthy and resinous hops, and brewed with oats for a bold mouthfeel. This beer is the perfect canvas for barrel ageing.


Wyeast 1272 - American Ale II™

Brewers Tips:

Allow the fermentation to go as far as possible. Soak oak chips in whisky to get the barrel aged characteristic.

Food Pairing:

Smoked cured beef
Smoked aubergine tapenade with rye bread
Beer affogato - 1/3 glass of Paradox with a scoop of vanilla ice cream
