Tipicamente inglês, o estilo Imperial Stout tem normalmente generoso teor alcoólico, e como deve ser a Black Rapadura da Colorado terá 10,5% de álcool. O produto foi elaborado com rapadura escura e os melhores maltes ingleses selecionados para fazer com que essa cerveja evolua em sabor por até dois anos, se guardada em lugar escuro e fresco. Inspirada na Fullers Vintage, uma cerveja inglesa de receita também variante e de tiragem limitada, a Black Rapadura vem agregar ainda mais valor ao portifolio tipicamente brasileiro da Cervejaria Colorado, que já conta com a Colorado Appia (Weiss com Mel), Colorado Cauim (Pilsen com Mandioca), Colorado Demoiselle (Porter com Café) e Colorado Índica (India Pale Ale com Rapadura). A diferenciação entre os dois produtos Colorado que levam Rapadura em sua formulação, além do estilo adotado, está também na concentração de lúpulo, 40 de IBU (unidades internacionais de amargor) da Indica contra 60 da Black Rapadura.

Taste is slightly sweet and harsh, dark sugar, weeds, medicine, dark malts, caramel, grass, alcohol, paper, minerals. Little bitterness, watery and medical mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea.

Nose is raisins, alcohol, cola nuts, blackstrap molasses, caramel, toffee and hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is coca cola, blackstrap molasses, caramel, chocolate, coffee and hints of toffee, dark syrup and herbs. Full body, medium carbonation.

Padron4KM (736) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - SEP 18, 2015
16.4 oz bottle.
Deep black, with a creamy tan head, and sticky lace. Nitro like carbonation.
Aroma is dark fruit, molasses, anise, milk chocolate, creamy coffee.
Flavor is sweet, milky chocolate, coffee, molasses, licorice, all with a nice dark roasted malt bitter finish to keep it tempered.
10% abv is well hidden.
Bottle conditioned, so be sure to decant if you don’t want chunks of yeast in your glass. I didn’t see them until it was too late. Affected the flavor a bit in the second glass, but not enough to dock it. At $10 a 16 oz bottle, it is kind of pricey, but it sure was tasty.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2015
50cl bottle via trade with some terrible wax job that’s more annoying than anything to open the bottle. BB 14/08/2016. Brune foncée, col doré, café au lait laissant un filament huileux sur le verre. Arôme est malté, caramel, grillé, chocolaté avec un agréable rétro fruité noir. Palais est épais centré principalement sur les malts, chocolaté, grillé, belle note de fruits noirs rappelant le raisin et la date. Chocolat est bien là, palais est réchauffant, pointe d’épicé des houblons apportant une fine note d’amertume, sucre brun sur la fin avec une légère présence de levure. Solide, se buvant plus comme un scotch ale que un stout.
