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.

Abio (1809) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2015
Decent brew from firestone, with a lot of different tastes that gets trough. Some wood, vanilla and chocolate, but also something pleasant that I can’t really name, but seems very familiar. Nice one.

Smooth, Creamy, vanilla. The palate is very smooth, thick, and very warming, this fills your throat with heat. Color is deep brown, cloudy. Aroma of sweet brown sugar and fruity tropical nectars. Shared at Curtis’s (Nashville’s Sweetwarer Representative) tasting.

bomber to snifter poured a medium brown with smallish head. the aroma took me a minute or so to figure out and once I did I was in love with this beer. what transpired was the blend of chocolate and coconut mixed with the sweet malts that make a barley wine. the flavor was much more intense of the chocolate front and back and the mix of the coconut finishes with a soft warm boozy feeling. definite sipper in front of the fireplace.

Bottle. Pours a cola colored, could pass for coke. Aroma is awesome. Caramel, malt and hops. Flavor is boozy caramel, oak, toffee and malts. Fuck, this beer is incredible. Not really boozy, but the alcohol is there.
