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.

Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours dark brown with thin tan head that dissipates quickly. Sweet toffee and bourbon aroma with some chocolate, oak and a hint of coconut. Sweet toffee and lots of bourbon flavor with vanilla, chocolate, oak and coconut. Full body with minimal carbonation and a slick mouthfeel. Awsome beer! Thanks Craig.

Thanks GT2! Extreme dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Massive vanilla bourbon, caramel, toffee, maple syrup, marshmallow, and tannic wood abound. Sweet and boozy with a thick body and low carb, finishing sticky.

Sample. Rating #225. Clear dark brown pour with a thin head. Sweet caramel aroma, light hop aroma. Dark fruits, light bitterness and full on joy, real freaking nice. (2025)

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 30, 2011
UPDATED: APR 26, 2012 Cola brown with minimal tan head, and a bit of yeasty sediment Aroma is. marshmallowy, chocolatey and bourbony in the most devine sense of the word. Taste is the same, and finishes in cherry cordial notes, with boozy warming. I could drink this at room temperature, and be quite happy. $15/220z (celebratory: "Modernist Cuisine" arrived) Edit: Now that it’s called Sucaba, it seems a bit hot and harsh in the alcohol department, without the mellow refinement I recall from before. Still very good, but just not great. Rating stays, along with my fond memory. (celebratory: Rammstein Concert!)

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear brown pour with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, toffee and booze. Flavor starts with English toffee and cherry, then moves to sweet caramel and bourbon before a malty chocolate finish.

Poured 22 oz into a sniffer glass. The Abacus has a burnt caramel color. Oak favors with a hint of coconut, which goes well with this big boozy beer.

651mL thanks to peteinsd. Pours a flattish clear deep mahogany. Yellow bubbles. Looks like FW10, FW11. Nose is big maple, toasted coconut, toffee maltiness. As it warms it exhibits more savoriness/umami with rich coconut. Taste is rich, big coconut bourbon, lovely dessert profile with mild heat. Not too much sugar, beautiful coconut. Very beautiful palate- not too sticky with a nice fruit juicy character and mild sugar. Super yummy dessert beer. Similar to FW11. Shame it doesn’t pour with a head. Moderate alcohol heat is not distracting at all. Still, Parabola is the Cuvee de Firestone.

Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks! Depp and clear ruby color, small beige edge head. Aroma is boozy vanilla and pancake syrup. Taste is carbonated tawny port, whiskey, dark fruits. Very nice.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2011
This beer pours a hazy ruby-brown color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of oaky vanilla, dark fruit and brown sugar. Rich body with flavors of chocolate malt, vanilla, booze-infused fruit and a little smoke. The finish is ripe fruits and dark chocolate. Good beer all around.

750 ml bottle pour. I really enjoyed this one. Dark amber color with a nice head. The sweetness goes well with the bourbon. Very smooth.
