Limited to 2009 bottles. A porter, to which rapadou (Carribean unrefined cane sugar from Haiti) was added (but not caramelized rapadou as in the Rapadou Porter) and aged for two months in Virginia Gentleman bourbon barrels. It is a complex porter, to which the flavors of vanilla and a little bourbon have been added as a result of the aging process.

Dark malt and bourbon barrel nose. Dry woody and a little sweet boozey notes. Brown dark sugary notes too. Super dark brown, light brown foam ring. Chocolate - bitter earthy cocoa and bourbon barrel flavors. Woody dry and bourbon notes linger. Dry light booy finish hang around for a while. Thinnish body for style.

22 ounce bottle from cdog69. Pours opaque dark brown with a long lasting khaki head. Beautiful beer. The nose is chocolate cover graham crackers, with some vanilla whipped cream, and mild booze. Great flavors of mild bourbon and rich chocolate. Holy crap! This dude is way better than I anticipated. Medium, yet lush body with an ample bourbon finish. This beer is fantastic.

Bottle… October ‘09 O-Town Throwdown!… Pours dark and clear with ruby highlights and a small, creamy, beige head. Bourbony, chocolaty, roasty aroma. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor displays a lot of chocolate, bourbon and vanilla with a nutty component as well. Finishes bittersweet and boozy.

22oz. bomber, #25/2009, with a big thanks to ksurkin! Pours dark brown/black with a moderate fluffy tan head. Aroma is a nice bourbon nose, with vanilla, oak, char, chocolate and light caramel. Flavor is very nice, with less (but still present) bourbon, and more vanilla, oak, chocolate, caramel, molasses and some espresso notes. Great creamy and coating mouthfeel. Wow, I was hoping for something nice here and this one did not disappoint. Thanks again Ken!

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Pours a creamy opaque with a stringy-lacing smallish froth of beige head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel and chocolate with some roasty coffee and vanilla notes along with a good amount of bourbon oak. Starts full bodied, rich and sweet with some toffee character, molasses and bittersweet chocolate before a drier, slightly warming bourbon finish. Well-balanced, complex and fairly drinkable. An enjoyable barrel-aged brew.
