Where this one really shines is in the fact that it doesn’t have the same cloying, lingering sweetness as the others. The fresh wood barrel is more evident on the palate than one might have expected and it helps the beer finish cleanly. Very nice.

[2/18/15] Draught at The Bruery in Placentia. As Sucré (New American Oak). Brown color, slightly reddish, with a beige head. Boozy aroma with malt, wood and some dark fruits. Sweet flavor, quite boozy, with malt, dark fruits, caramel and a bit of vanilla. Medium-bodied.

Bottle... Pours clear and deeply copper with a tiny, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is a rich collage of caramel, oak, maple, and brown liquor. Full-bodied and syrupy with tingly carbonation. The flavor is boozy and malty - caramel, toffee and an unexpected hint of coffee. Warming, comforting, lightly acidic finish. It’s big and alcoholic, but consumed at the proper pace, it’s quite enjoyable. Don’t wash down a burger with or gulp it through a beer bong. Bottle supplied by biggsbowler!

Poured from a 750 ml Bois bottle. Aroma is fairly malty but is well balanced by quite a bit of dried dark fruits. Nice oak notes with almond and coconut. Lighter alcohol notes than in the other versions. Pours a murky reddish brown with a somewhat thin, dart tan head that quickly recedes to a thin film on the edges. No lacing and fairly long legs. Flavor is nice as well, but with too much oak in my opinion. Lots of malt character and lighter, dried dark fruit notes. Lighter alcohol notes than the other versions make this slightly more drinkable. Moderately strong fresh oak notes add hints of almond and vanilla, but also quite a bit of wood. I like that the wood seems to temper the sweet fruit and malt notes and add some moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium low carbonation. Low, but present astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a good beer and not as overly sweet as the other variants but the oak character is a bit too strong. I like that the alcohol character is lighter as well.

Garnet pour with a dense vanilla head. Aroma of raisins, figs, and bready malts. Taste is vinous, like a tawny port. Dark stone fruit and sourdough come through on the finish. Not bad.

fletchfighters (1200) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2014
750 ML bottle Deep brown color, light tan head. ABV legs, strips of lacing Nose is vanilla, coconut, date, molasses, brown sugar, and subtle apple. Taste is vanilla, coconut, oak, apple, date, caramel, molasses, and booze. Big bodied, a little too hot and boozy right now. Low carbonation and a little too much fresh oak

This poured a medium brown with a tiny beige head. Aroma was of caramel, dark fruit, booze, and oak. Flavor similar, sweet but not sickening, big showcase of complex.malts and oak.

Pour from a 750 at FOBAB. Labeled Sucre new oak. Has quite a lot of apple wood taste to it. Sweet but not bitter old ale/barleywine. Strong but not boozy. I actually found this more interesting than the rum, bourbon or whatever else ive had because the spirit version really has too much booze covering up the rather tasty base beer that is underneath.
