COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Limited to 2009 bottles. A porter, to which rapadou (Carribean unrefined cane sugar from Haiti) was added (but not caramelized rapadou as in the Rapadou Porter) and aged for two months in Virginia Gentleman bourbon barrels. It is a complex porter, to which the flavors of vanilla and a little bourbon have been added as a result of the aging process.

Bottle… October ‘09 O-Town Throwdown!… Pours dark and clear with ruby highlights and a small, creamy, beige head. Bourbony, chocolaty, roasty aroma. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor displays a lot of chocolate, bourbon and vanilla with a nutty component as well. Finishes bittersweet and boozy.

22oz. bomber, #25/2009, with a big thanks to ksurkin! Pours dark brown/black with a moderate fluffy tan head. Aroma is a nice bourbon nose, with vanilla, oak, char, chocolate and light caramel. Flavor is very nice, with less (but still present) bourbon, and more vanilla, oak, chocolate, caramel, molasses and some espresso notes. Great creamy and coating mouthfeel. Wow, I was hoping for something nice here and this one did not disappoint. Thanks again Ken!

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Pours a creamy opaque with a stringy-lacing smallish froth of beige head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel and chocolate with some roasty coffee and vanilla notes along with a good amount of bourbon oak. Starts full bodied, rich and sweet with some toffee character, molasses and bittersweet chocolate before a drier, slightly warming bourbon finish. Well-balanced, complex and fairly drinkable. An enjoyable barrel-aged brew.

Bottle thanks to Ksurkin. Damn good and tasty stuff, though I believe I was on the verge of passing out in the pop up when this one came out....so read MrBunns rating and you will see mine.

Incredibly smooth BB Porter, wonderful Bourbon in the nose, roasty almost coffee like maltiness across the tounge, backed by minor hops and a little more bourbon in the finish. A rock solid effort. Hope they can find the means to make a larger batch of this fine ale. Thanks to Rick@BigZ for sharing it with me.
