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.

22 oz. Bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head that leaves some lacing. Great bourbon nose. Tastes of bourbon, vanilla, and booze. Good, but a little too boozy. I would definitely let it warm to room temperature to bring out the flavors.

Bottle. Bit of oxidation notes, pretty simple and good bourbon aged imperial porter.

starts off great, then gets that wet raisin flavor with some cardboard. Not a fan, tasted like a coffee stout to me. Warmed subparly.

22oz bottle (2011 - #4488) received in a trade from Doodler in 2011
Pours near black with a medium sized tan head and some lacing. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, oak and leather. Flavors of roasted malts, bourbon, vanilla, woody with a nice warming alcohol bitterness in the finish
Very nice and smooth, this could have aged a few more years and still be tasty. Lots of bourbon and vanilla.

A big thanks to Brad for sending me this. Nose is smooth bourbon, chocolate, roast, some light coffee, a hint of vanilla, and some dark fruit. Excellent. Flavors line up pretty similarly. Very nice.

Bottle to glass. Pours a very deep brown to black color with a thin rim of creamy tan head. Aroma is lots of chocolate, lightly roasted malts. Flavor is chocolatey sweetness, vanilla, with a hint of after dinner wine booze. Medium body with a strong lingering chocolatey sweetness. Excellent beer!

Damn nice aroma, dark chocolate, vanilla, and sweet bourbon.

Flavor is chocolate pudding, vanilla oak, hints of anise and a nice subtle bourbon heat after the sip. Coffee with sugar. Texture is creamy with the body leaning on the lighter side of medium. The bourbon balances the rich malt very nicely. Quite easy to drink for such a big beer.

Really nicely crafted.

Pitch black and oily. no head. Smells amazing! Loads of vanilla, toffee, caramel and bourbon. Wow. sweet. loads of raisin and grapes. very very sweet. vanilla out the butt. It’s gonna be hard to finish a bomber though. best shared with a few people.

Oh wow a full flavor porter with a decent palate that I actually am impressed with! Finally a porter worth drinking. Lots if bourbon and roasty flavors that makes his porter almost drink like a stout. Which brings me to the question I always ask myself when I convince myself to give porters another chance. Why not a stout?
