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.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Pours amber coffee brown with a quickly dissipating head. Moderate aromas of sweet malt and toffee. Full nectar with good carbonation. I like how this beer has a high complex value while remaining classy. It’s not overdone. Most barleywines of this magnitude are much too sweet and unbalanced. This brew reaches a new pinnacle. This beer has gone where no beer has gone before. Much more English in style exhibiting flavors of toffee, butterscotch, coconut, and a hint of cherry. Big on Bourbon. Love this brew. I feel a TRUMP card comin’ on. Bamn!

Pour is dark copper/amber with a small yellow head, some retention/lace. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, oak, toffee, coconut, light cocoa. Taste is moderately sweet; bourbon, coconut, vanilla, caramel, light booziness. Palate is lightly sticky, oily, boozy finish. Good.

beerbaaron (1844) - Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2015
A beautiful deep blood red color with a small soapy beige head. Exquisite aroma. Powerful, full of character and complexity, and so cohesive. Jam, dark fruit, dark brown sugar, dark chocolate, along with super well integrated barrel character. Flavor follows but is not as distinctly. Lighter full body. Warm alcohol.

On tap at Churchills. Big off-white foamy head. A little musty oaky aroma. I smell a little bit of yeasty auotlysis. Nice legs on glass. Sweetish. You can tast the alcohol.

Sample at GABF 2009. Pours a dark amber color with off-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of chocolate, ripe dark fruit, light toffee and molasses. Flavor is about the same. Medium body with a pleasing malty and boozy finish.

Abio (1823) - 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.

Pour is dark cola brown with a dark tan head. Nose is wood, light bourbon, cooked brown sugar, lightly roasted malt and a touch of ash.
