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.

The appearance is black with a tan head. The aroma is roasted coffee and chocolate. The flavor is somewhat sweet and quite complex. I taste chocolate, coffee, and a hint of toffee flavors. Overall this was a nice Imperial Porter.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2011 Bottle 1565/ 2007 This is major Porter. The beer poured with a brown forthy head that dissapated and left some lacing down the glass. I purchased this bottle at the Alewerks in Williamsburg. The Brewmatser recommended that I try it. He was right. The flavor was immense. The higher alcohol was not detected until later. It is a full bodied porter with chocolate and caramel flavors. It is a joy to drink. Some sweetness at the finish. When this is stored in bourbon barrels it will be amazing.

Thanks to Immy for this one! Thick dark pour, fluffy brown head and drippy lace. Chocolate and alcohol on the nose. Silky mouth feel and full bodied. Complex flavor. Earthy, chocolate, toffee, coffee, and molasses. Very solid offering!

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 30, 2010
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!

RBSG 2010 somewhere... I wrote: 8resrevzyryjilyylgggjjjgggggb. Very very dark brown brew with a small light brown head and ok lacing. Pretty good aroma - chocolate, tobacco, light smoke, sweet, nuts and some hardcore molasses or something and some roasted malts. Big flavours of sweet oiliness, fin shit (that’s what is typed up - thanks iphone spell check), bakers chocolate - tons, cocoa, vanilla, light spices. The finish is just too much to really enjoy to the max.

RABinCO (1288) - 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.

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

Dogbrick (8139) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Sample at the DBLDP on 08/31/2014. Dark mahogany color with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Roast malt, coffee and caramel in the nose. Medium to full body with flavors of roasted coffee, chocolate malt and toffee. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
