Big boozy bourbon and American oak aromas combined with soft chocolate malty undertones. Complex malt flavors framed in oak, with hints of dark chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, coconut and just a touch of dark cherry. This is definitely a sipping beer, best served in a brandy snifter. This ale pairs well with dark chocolate and sturdy cheeses.

Note: Sucaba is the beer formerly known as Abacus until the Winter 2012 release.

Drinking the 2016 batch. Pours mahogany with limited head. Smells of bourbon, oak, and cherry. Taste is a rich, chocolatey malt with raisin, fig, caramel, and bourbon. Rather thin, with light carbonation and a noticeable alcohol bite. A wonderful barleywine.

AdolfoCC (168) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - JUN 24, 2016
Vintage 2016, servida en un spiegelau tulip. APARIENCIA: de color marrón con destellos rojizos a contraluz, se observa una moderada actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color beige de poca retención, de burbujas compactas y abiertas. AROMA: el carácter de la barrica bien presente, notas a coco tostado, vainilla, bourbon dulce, roble, caramelo, toffee, algunos frutos oscuros como higos y dátiles. SABOR: al inicio del trago es dulce, seguido de caramelo, toffee, el carácter de la barrica presente pero no dominante, las notas a coco, vainilla, bourbon y roble, ligeramente frutos oscuros como higos y dátiles, en ocasiones en medio del trago aparece una nota intensa de coco que me gustó mucho pero no es consistente. En el retrogusto un amargor medio bajo ligeramente dulce. SENSACIÓN: el cuerpo es medio con mediana a baja carbonatación. El alcohol bien enmascarado, se siente sólo en garganta al pasar el trago como un sensación cálida. RESUMEN: excelente cerveza, muy bien integrado el carácter de la barrica.

Pours a hazy copper from the bomber with thin ring of bubbly tan head that leaves little to no lace. Aroma of sweet toffee and caramel notes, big booze notes and a hint of wood. Taste is less booze, still big caramel and dark burnt sugars, molasses undertone. Warming, big, but balanced.

Padron4KM (799) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2016
22 oz bottle. Dark caramel brown, thin, rapidly dissipating head, minimal lace.
Aroma is bourbon, oak, vanilla, caramel malt, booze soaked raisins.
Flavor is vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, oak, caramel, dark fruit.
Gets sweeter as it warms, but the oaky tannin keep it from and light hoppiness keep it in check.
