COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Boutip (4863) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle: Poured a medium clear amber color ale with a small foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of bourbon and corn is very deep with some sweet caramelized malt notes. Taste is a very rich mix between some bourbon notes with light corn ester and some deep caramelize sugar. Bourbon is intense though not too much too ruin the balanced though vanilla notes are harder to distinguish. Residual sugar is also not too overwhelming and some attenuation remains to keep some kind of balance into this big beer. Well done and something I would have again.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle at home, from my Minneapolis Town Hall glass. Pours nearly opaque russet, with a tawny flash. Nose is not bourbon, loads of toffee, caramel, smoke, and barrel. Very sticky but very excellent nose. Flavours of big bourbon cask, a bit hot, but with surprising balance and weight. Big, bourbony, but surprisingly pleasant to drink!

portableparty (1955) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle shared by BVery. Pours a oily brown black that looks copper and leaves a tight khaki wispy film. Aroma is awesome vanilla woodiness and sweet candied sugar malt and hidden whiskey scents. Taste is more sweet malty vanila wood and shows a awesome caramel maltiness and subtle spice bitterness. Palate is full and slick with a drying finish. Fucking awesome!
