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.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 2012 bottle shared with Pixachii. Pours a dark copper with red highlights. Tiny bubbles. Small head. Recedes quickly into a little ring. Smells toasty. Spicy and sweet, like graham crackers. Caramel, honey, a little chocolate, booze, vanilla, booze, and booze. Tastes sweet and creamy with loads of vanilla notes. This tastes spicier to me than I remembered it. Very warming. Tasty stuff.

On tap at Battleship. Pours a deep amber color. Aroma is full of oak, vanilla, some bourbon and malts. Full bodied palate. Flavor is smooth for 13% abv. There’s malts, bourbon, oak and a little booziness. Leaves an oaked bourbon finish. Impressive.

Bottle pour. This one smells great - very goose island BCBS-like. Carbonation wasn’t perfect and the head bubbles were inconsistent.

Toadvine (72) - Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2013
2013 reserve from TW&B. Nice rich brown color with some tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma is heavy vanilla, oak, booze, coconut, tobacco, and the taste is pretty similar. Good stuff.

shroud0fdoom (150) - Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Look: Dark mahogany body, off white head. Smell: Big coconut, chocolate, doughy notes, wood, sweet toasted malts, spicy. Taste: Coconut, nice slight berry notes, toasted malt, chocolate, nice quality tobacco in the finish, slight heat, very nice. Feel: Medium body undertoned carbonation. Overall: This is a dangerous brew! The dry tobacco finish aches for another sip even at almost 13% ABV. All flavors are not muddled each one screams out nicely. This is close to DFH Palo Santo but not as hot. This is Recommended.

Mora2000 (6151) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2013
On tap at the Common Table. Hazy brown with no real head. The aroma is absolutely awesome. I get a ton of maple and vanilla as well as some bourbon and caramel notes. The greatness continues in the flavor where I get all of the notes from the aroma, as well as some dark fruit and brown sugar. All of the notes meld very well together with the oak adding tons of character to the beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Amazing beer and super happy I got to try it. Hopefully I see it on tap again soon.

Poured a murky brown with no head. Wonderful nose of pure bourbon. Surprisingly soft on the palate, maybe even a little thin.

Pours a clear walnut brown with decent head and good lacing. Aroma of chocolate malt and tobacco with a hint of tea. Flavor of caramel malt with tobacco leaf and some vanilla. Some chocolate and booze in finish. Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Very good and complex. One of my favorite barley wines. ---Jeremy H

2013 bottle to snifter. Pours a brown ruby color with little to no head. Good lacing. Aroma is brewed tea bag, caramel, vanilla and tobacco. Taste is the same with alcohol coming through strong but not overwhelming. Medium, very dry mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark iced tea ruby color with little white head. Smells like sweet iced tea, sweet tobacco leaf, caramel. A sweet dark fruit taste, banana, spicy tobacco mid palate, boozy vanilla after. Interesting overall, probably my top three of barley wines. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
