COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a very dark brown with a small tan head. The nose sweet with a little vanilla, roasted malt, and a hint of chocolate. The flavor leans towards the sweet side as well. The roasted malt and chocolate balance each other out. A light dried fruit note emerges as the brew warms. Medium to full body with softer carbonation. A delicious offering from Alewerks.

Bottle. Black with almost no head. Nose is toffee and burnt caramel. Taste adds some marshmallow and soy sauce. Palate is nice and round and full. Sweet and just savory enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RABinCO (1214) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle into a goblet. Pours a deep, viscous brown. Very thin tan head. Pleasant roasty aroma with big sweet, vanilla notes. Taste is a lot of sweet toffee. Like a Heath bar in beer form. Chocolate, caramel, nuts, vanilla. Finishes surprisingly dry. Real good.

Great porter from a local brewer! Appearance is opaque brown, tastes of light chococolate, coffee and roasted notes. Overall a very well put together porter that I have bought quite a few bottles of!

Opaque black beer, short lived chocolate coloured head. Dark chocolate on the nose. Semi dry palate. Rich dark toffee and chocolate with licorice - alcohol. None of it sweet. Finishes much the same way with a dark malt aftertaste. Rich and flavoursome but it lacks something to counterbalance it’s heaviness. Decent though.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle 0590 of 2007. Poured an opaque black color. The head was one finger high and brown. It reduced over a minute or two to a lasting film. Chocolate and whiffs of cinnamon and anise in the nose. Medium to full bodied and slightly sweet. A bit of roasty bitterness emerged at the end.

This is a review for bottle 1256 of 2007 from Rick’s Wine & Gourmet in Alexandria, VA. Served @ 45 degrees F in a Troegs Mad Elf snifter glass. This beer was incredible. Extremely intense unrefined sugar with hints of raisins. Very much a molasses note to this. There was alcohol, but it wasn’t boozy. Color was deep and dark, with about two fingers of foam, which did not dissipate quickly. I really wish this beer hadn’t been limited to 2007 bottles, because I’d like another three. I still have one though, that I’m sitting on. Serving type: bottle

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle thanks to Eric. Pours near black with a light earthy brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of roast joined by a good amount of toffee with slight hints of bitter chocolate and caramel. Flavor begins dark with roasted malts and dark chocolate but has a bit of sweetness from toffee in the finish.

Really really good. Nice black / deep brown pour with a big aroma of dark chocolate, roasted lats and coffee. A nice dry coffee bean and dark roasted chocolate flavor. A really well blended Porter.
