3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle share at Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is a heavenly blend of bourbon, vanilla, caramel candies, natural fruit syrup. Taste is punchy bourbon... very rich and thick caramel notes with figs, vanilla. Some oak too. Very complex and rich... but even half a bottle was a bit much. Could’ve sniffed this stuff all night though. Amazing aroma.

Beer is great. Love the heavy malt flavor. Don't taste the toffee. But can't believe it is this good.

on tap at library ale house, like the little brother of the sucaba, lighter in color, similarly rich but less intense in flavor, similar genre of flavors as the sucaba, but also a fresher seeming experience than the sucaba

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Poured a clear copper color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of nice caramelized malt with nice toffee notes and light residual sugar notes. Taste is also dominated by caramelized malt with some toffee notes, light biscuit notes and just the right amount of residual sugar. Body is about average with good carbonation and light warming alcohol. This beer is super well-balanced with just the right amount of complexity and great drinkability.

Bottle, 2012. Pours clear ruby red with a small creamy tan head that slowly dissipates leaving nice lacing. Aroma is a wonderful blend of toffee, vanilla, bourbon, malt, dark fruits. Flavor is medium sweet and medium bitter, lots of barrel, oakiness, vanilla, toffee, dark breads. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. A touch hot and some astringency.
