An Imperial Porter brewed with a Haitian sugar called Rapadou. Rapadou is a traditionally processed cane sugar that lends a great toffee caramel flavor to our 9% ABV Porter. Watch for this one aged in oak barrels in the future. Limited edition of 2007 bottles.

Bomber, #532 of 2007. Black with a thick brown head that faded rapidly. Nose has lots of roasty malt and toffee, some coffee and black molasses notes. Thick, creamy mouthfeel, very smooth, certainly full bodied. Flavor is somewhat sweet, burnt malt and caramel, black coffee and cocoa. A medium bitterness from start to finish, baking chocolate-like. Everything softens just a bit when fully warmed. Alcohol is barely detectable, surprising for 9%. Finishes with more toffee and caramel. Absolutely delicious! May not be for everyone, but I love it.

Bottle - 22 ounce. Bottled on the 20th of November 2007. Limited edition of 2007. This is bottle number 1851. Pours pitch black with some mahogany around the edges. Small fading light brown head. Very dense and creamy. Aroma is roasty malts, burnt caramel, toffee and hints of Bit O Honey. Taste is roasty malts, more burnt caramel notes, toffee and faint coffee. Body is creamy and smooth with a medium to medium-full palate and light bitterness lingering throughout the finish. Ends with more toffee and burnt caramel notes. Roasted malts, soft coffee and light cocoa round this out. Nice stuff! The 9% ABV isn’t even noticeable. It will be interesting to see how this responds to barrel aging once they do it. In speaking with the folks at Alewerks today, the barrel aging prospect isn’t set in stone.
