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.

3fourths (7879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Thick properly dark brown body with thick legs, viscous lacing and a oily texture, underneath a tan to dark tan head. Strange starchy, spicy bread in the nose, with strong notes of toffee and caramel. Moderately thick texture, surprisingly thick, actually, with a hefty dose of chocolate, toffee, coffee grounds, spiced wood? Very strange but very good – quite different I think than anything I’ve had before. Resembles a foreign stout with the level or roast combined with exotic spices and coffee and such.

BeerandBlues2 (9446) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2008
22-oz bottle (327 of 2007) received via trade with Immy. Pours opaque with a small, creamy, dark brown head, mostly lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (coffee, chocolate, nutty), average hops (perfume, pine, flowers), average yeast (leather) with notes of wood, alcohol, and prunes. Full bodied, alcoholic and creamy texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

Heavy coffee like roastedness, and an odd burnt something,like charred sugar, taste is burnt coffee and dark caramel,finished by a smooth and bitter light sweetness,alcohol well hidden, strange combination, coffee grounds taste more burnt then roasted, you certainly notice that strange sugar used,still very enjoyable Thanks Kingpin

jsquire (3398) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Dark beer with some ruby hints when held against the light. Short lived beige head. Thick nose of molasses and dark dried fruit. This is a full flavored porter with lots of dark brown sugar, molasses, raisin and dried fruit flavors with hints of ash and something almost smokey. Tasty beer.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Pours black with a one-finger tan head. Roasted coffee and chocolate aroma with a good deal of toffee. Sweet flavor with a finish of overdone coffee. Alcoholic finish. I might not have called it a porter.
