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.

Pours a clear walnut brown with decent head and good lacing. Aroma of chocolate malt and tobacco with a hint of tea. Flavor of caramel malt with tobacco leaf and some vanilla. Some chocolate and booze in finish. Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Very good and complex. One of my favorite barley wines. ---Jeremy H

Very good balance, the spirit of a scotch with the body of an ale. Very enjoyable.

Tap@Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2016, Copenhagen - at last!!, great to try this after sneaking off mid tasting to scoop this :) dark brown coloured pour with beige head. Medium sweet malty aroma and taste, toasty, caramel, toffee, nutty, some nice dark cocoa chocolate notes, dried fruits, bourbon notes into the close. Maybe not as amazing as expected but still solid!

Drinking the 2016 batch. Pours mahogany with limited head. Smells of bourbon, oak, and cherry. Taste is a rich, chocolatey malt with raisin, fig, caramel, and bourbon. Rather thin, with light carbonation and a noticeable alcohol bite. A wonderful barleywine.

AdolfoCC (146) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - JUN 24, 2016
Vintage 2016, servida en un spiegelau tulip. APARIENCIA: de color marrón con destellos rojizos a contraluz, se observa una moderada actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color beige de poca retención, de burbujas compactas y abiertas. AROMA: el carácter de la barrica bien presente, notas a coco tostado, vainilla, bourbon dulce, roble, caramelo, toffee, algunos frutos oscuros como higos y dátiles. SABOR: al inicio del trago es dulce, seguido de caramelo, toffee, el carácter de la barrica presente pero no dominante, las notas a coco, vainilla, bourbon y roble, ligeramente frutos oscuros como higos y dátiles, en ocasiones en medio del trago aparece una nota intensa de coco que me gustó mucho pero no es consistente. En el retrogusto un amargor medio bajo ligeramente dulce. SENSACIÓN: el cuerpo es medio con mediana a baja carbonatación. El alcohol bien enmascarado, se siente sólo en garganta al pasar el trago como un sensación cálida. RESUMEN: excelente cerveza, muy bien integrado el carácter de la barrica.

Sweet toffee, chocolate and burnt sugar. Wet wood and bourbon whiskey. Nicely balanced sipper that should come with a fireplace.

jbruner (3852) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Pours a hazy copper from the bomber with thin ring of bubbly tan head that leaves little to no lace. Aroma of sweet toffee and caramel notes, big booze notes and a hint of wood. Taste is less booze, still big caramel and dark burnt sugars, molasses undertone. Warming, big, but balanced.
