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.

Arayaga2 (2079) - 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 itís 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!)

DalzAle (2020) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2011
Bottle shared by Dan. Clear, very dark brown pour and an aroma of plums, raisins and booze. Flavor is very spicey, boozy prunes, and a little hops along with a hot alcohol aftertaste. Still hot as a young beer, but can only get better with age.

csaso (2016) - Missouri, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 2012 vintage - small foamy head, very dark amber color, aroma is strong alcohol, malt, oak, vanilla; tase is similar with added coconut notes - very complex beer of course, but very good. Definitely strong in the alcohol department, so drink slow!

TheHOFF43 (2014) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2013
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.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2012
Aroma of molasses, vanilla chocolate, and slight black cherry. Pours brown and heavily carbonated. Taste is intense. Oak, chocolate, cherry and vanilla balance wonderfully in a malty bed. Delicious.

HonusWagner (1978) - Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2011
In typical Firestone fashion, this beer does barrel-aging the right way. Just the right amount of sweet, hot bourbon to blend well with rich malt sweetness and a totally subdued hop character that doesnít create a harsh, overly bitter finish. Manages to be rich and velvety without cloying sweetness. Darn impressive, and Iím not big on BA Barley Wines (why is Wooden Hell my number one want, again?).
