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.

Bottle at home. Thanks a bunch, Mike! Pours black with a small beige head. The aroma is vanilla, oak, sweet chocolate, light roast and a bunch of dried fruit. The flavor has notes of dried fruit, roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon (also the alcohol notes) and wood. The alcohol is a bit too harsh in the finish but it's very tasty indeed! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz. bottle shared at Dave’s tasting. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Pleasant aroma of vanilla and bourbon; not a whole lot of the base beer comes through. Perhaps a bit of roasted malt in the nose. The flavor is a bit more balanced with vanilla and bourbon along with roasted malt. A bit of alcohol heat at the finish. Fairly full bodied.

Bottle @ Bruce’s. Picked up @ Beer Run. The pour’s deep brown with a small head. The nose is cocoa, dark chocolate, a bit of sweet marshmallow and vanilla. The taste is dark chocolate. Roasted figs, dark fruits. More vanilla. A touch of boozy wood. Full body, moderate carbonation. Smooth, quite drinkable, pleasant.

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.
