COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Big bourbon hit right away on this one, but it doesn’t turn sharp and harsh like a lot of BBA porters. Lots of vanilla and dark sugar flavor and a bit of smoke and toffee in the finish. Good job keeping the sweetness in check while giving us the flavor!

Poured from the bottle. Color is black with tan head. Aroma is all vanilla and bourbon. Flavor is the same, vanilla and bourbon, with maybe just a hint of coffee. Mouthfeel is medium-to-thick, with a creamy finish. Really like this one.

Full bodied, fine carbonation, dry roasty finish. Decent work.

Scopey (7376) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle thanks to Jack! It pours darkest brown with a small white head. The nose is earthy, toast, plum, date, caramel, toffee, Scottish tablet and toasty marshmallow. The taste is roasty, earth, plum, date, decent bitterness, big alcohol kick and chocolate. Full body and fine carbonation. Decent, but a bit too boozy for my liking.
