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.

Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma is of bourbon, sugar, caramelized sugar, vanilla, some booziness, and smoke. Medium palate. Flavor is of malts, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, oak, and some toastiness. Leaves a chocolate bourbon malt finish.

jake65 (3444) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Bottle share. Dark brown pour with a modest beige cap. Aroma is rich with bourbon barrel notes, sweet vanilla and fudge. A bit boozy. Big flavors of sweet vanilla and chocolate accented heavily by the barrel treatment. Lightly bittersweet, but mostly sweet. Definitely feels like a big boozy desert beer.

stevoj (4143) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 17, 2016
22oz bottle from share on 6/11/16. Dark brown, muddy pour capped off with a small beige, tight head. Barrel aging takes center stage in aroma and taste.Bourbon really brings out the smoky, chocolaty nature of the porter. Really knocked my socks off.

DuffMan (9637) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2016
Bottle, from b3shine-- thanks Beau! Shared with Parksy and others on his birthday. Dark brown pour, copper highlights, low beige head. Lovely chocolate and bourbon flavours with woody undertones, rich and silky smooth, very full bodied. The finish is very dry, with assertive tannins and moderate bitterness. A well made, well balanced black bourbon brew.

Tasting at Ferris
Black color, medium sized head. Aroma of alcohol and some Bourbon, eggs. Good body strength; chocolate flavor, but this one is really heavy on booze and Bourbon.
I like this kind of beers, its not really balanced though.

Pitch black pour with very little head. Smells like a bourbon caramel candy. Im excited about this one.. Sweet, dark fruit, tons of vanilla, and boozy. This is yummy.
