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.

DuffMan (6739) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Pours a gorgeous rich mahogany red. Thickly malty sweet and oaky nose. Sweet chewy malts: toasted coconut, chocolate, oaky vanilla, dark cherries, hints of leather and tobacco. This is so fucking good! Firestone Walker you sons o’ bitches, you’ve done it again! If I could choose my death, it would be to fall into a vat of this...

Kevin (2078) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazed ruby brown with a big whitish head that goes away fast One of the worst smelling beers I’ve encountered in a while. Smells of nail polish remover old meat and farts. Strangely tastes not too fucking shabby. Vanilla and a savory wood note accent the Chocolate covered cherry note well. Just can’t get past that smell.

kappldav123 (4927) - GERMANY - SEP 2, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Brownish-red in the glass. Alcoholic-malty aroma. Starts intense alcoholic-malty, sharp, burning. Fruity warming finish. A bit too alcoholic, but still okay.

MadIndian (2380) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2014
On draft at High Street. Nice full aromas and tastes of Earth, woog, vanilla, dark fruit, chocolate and coconut. The blend was perfect and really poped once it warmed.

UDBeernut (1713) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2014
2013 bottle split with my wife during some of the last rounds of fridge clearing. Pours red ruby with a dark tint. Ample cream hued foam head. nose of bourbon, vanilla, and booze. taste follows this theme with additional dark fruits, toffee, caramel. Body is big, booze burns the throat, warming. I enjoyed this and made by back feel better since it numbed it.

oOJUXEOo (285) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle pour at Beer Camp. Dark copper in color, beautiful aroma of wood, malt, and chocolate. Taste is warming, and slightly boozy, but not over the top. Has medium mouthfeel with tastes of oak, roasted malt, chocolate, and even some cherry. Nice beer, and glad I had a chance to try. The guys at Firestone only had a few bottles to share at Beer Camp.

Bottle shared by some nice folks. Pours a cola brown with tan head. Aroma is nice, some vanilla, oak, coffee, with some caramel. Taste was delicious, flavors of coffee, caramel, vanilla, and booze all intermingling together nicely.

Double whammy! This followed the FW Stickee Monkee. Alcohol burn apparent, but not overpowering. Pure barley essence, aroma and taste. A real gem.

Chocolate, coffee, alcohol, smoke, woody, earthy, resin found a beer to be very strong but palatable who love the aroma the chocolate notes that I took him to the upon or very divine but the flavor of the nuttiness due to the tobacco within the product give it I’m more of an alcohol tone to it so was I in your mouth the feel of it was sort of like whiskey after all it is
