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.

Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2011
In short: A toasted, caramelized, chocolaty and nutty dark ale that is just too easy to drink.
How: Bottle 22oz. Exact age unknown. Bottle sent to me by ksurkin, thank a lot Ken
The look: Near black body topped by a small tan head
In long: Nose is fudge caramel, chocolaty and roasted nuts. Pleasant malt backbone just how I like it, rich and creamy with fudge caramel, cacao powder, notes of chocolate but also a lot of toasted nuts and dry bread crust that dry out the beer. Not much fruity flavors to talk about. Leafy resinous hops work with the toasted bread and toasted nuts to really keep the sweetness in check. This beer is scarily drinkable. I like it. Go a lot to drink again on that knight. I realize now that I really can’t hold my alcohol. That’s why I swallow it.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Courtesy of ksurkin. Pours dark with mahogany edges and mocha head. The aroma is pretty darn rich with molasses, caramel, prunes, dried cherries, chocolate, a mild note of black licorice and a muted array of Noble hops. The taste is smooth with near creamy molasses, burnt malts, caramel, dark roastiness, chocolate and a bit of toffee. Well put together.

It has to be IBrew2or3 that shared this one. Pours brown with a white head. Nose is sarsaparilla, chocolate, anise, herbs, slight roast, and a hint of coffee. Flavor is similar with a medium body that finishes with lingering licorice and anise. Interesting and herby beer.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2010
bottle 314/2007 courtesy of mr. cbk on 3/21/2010. dark orange tinted brown with a small tannish head. the nose is full on brown sugar ... mixed with roast, chocolate, vanilla, coffee-like toasted nuttiness and a touch of hoppy spice. the flavor follows the same route... brown sugar, vanilla, cream, cocoa, coffee, warming spices and peppery with a mild bitterness on the finish. it is surprisingly quite dry. the medium body is crisp and creamy. that combo makes it very drunkable... 8/4/8/4/17/4.1

Bomber shared by cbkschubert at Hellbilly’s Shootout in Sosco Tasting. Pours dark reddish brown with a thin tan head. The nose is brown sugar, cocoa and roasted malt. The taste is toasted coffee beans, ashy cocoa, baker’s chocolate and a bitter coffee finish. Medium semi-creamy mouthfeel. Good stuff - thanks Craig!
