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.

Draught at the Firestone Walker Barrelworks, Buellton, CA.
Dark red brown colour with a small light tan head. Sweetness, dark fruits, raisins and citrus in an amazing aroma. The flavour is sweetness, dessert wine, dark fruitiness and raisins. Complex. Amazing. So so so tasty.

Lukasmh (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle, two years old. Pours dark and clear amber brown with medium beige head. Aroma is tons of vanilla, overripe fruits, dried fruits, port wine, bourbon barrel, coconut, caramel, malty. Taste is quite mellow, port whine, dried fruits, loads of vanilla and bourbon. Bit sugary mouthfeel. Chocolate in there as well. Medium carbonation and full body.

AirForceHops (5781) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 11, 2015
650 ml bottle Vintage 2013. Dark Amber color with a low carbonation level. Wow, this aroma is awesome as well as the flavor. Vanilla, big lingering vanilla, molasses, notes of coconut.

The flavor is Deep... No bull shit. The bourbon is mild and completely subtle and smooth. Sweet but not cloying. How could anybody give this less than a 4.2?? This is a wonderful subtle and flavorful BBA Barely wine after 2 years, pimping.

Awesome huge beer. It’s so complex, so big in every way. Perfect beer, to take a glass and spend with it half of the evening.
