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.

Aroma is very complex and the initial smell is more that of good bourbon than beer. It is followed by a leathery, tobacco smell that fades of to that of a slight bitterness. The appearance is a darker amber/red color with a khaki head. The taste is just as complex as the aroma. The initial taste is sweet bourbon that is followed by a slight bitterness that is quickly beaten into submission by the malt flavor. Great beer with not too much bourbon flavor

Jblauvs (1340) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 3, 2011
Glowing caramel pour with a slight fizzy head. Aroma is fruity, very boozy, some bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, dried fruits abound. Mouth feel is slick, oily. Very hot, but loads of dried fruits and bourbon in the flavor, very refined. Tasty but very boozy, we will see what time does to this guy. Excellent

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2011
pours a dark brown, not glass or shine to it, a little ugly, a light beige head, good retention and lacing... the aroma is decent, not as good as I as expecting, canít really tell it was barrel-aged at all, molasses mostly, a hint of hops... again canít really tell this is barrel-aged, a little bourbon, lots of chocolate, caramel, and vanilla, hoppy bourbon finish... good not the greatness I was expecting

Color is ruby red and dark, some lacing and low carbonation. Aroma is sweet, bourbon and some fruitiness. Sweet taste, not dry and good liquor character. Very good all around.

22 oz bottle provided by jtclockwork, thanks James. Poured an orange/brown body with a slightly foamy small head. Aroma of alcohol, honey, molasses, wet bread and sugar. Great smooth body with medium carbonatoin and a light syrupy feel. Flavor of liquid caramel, toffee, alcohol, honey, vanilla and some wood. really nice stuff, FW rocks and is a welcome addition to the NJ beer scene.
