Note: This entry is for the Maidera barrel aged version.

The traditional sixth anniversary gift is candy or sugar, so we’ve named our 6th anniversary ale "Sucré" which is "sugar" in French. Sucré is our sixth anniversary ale, loosely brewed in the English-style Old Ale tradition using our house Belgian yeast strain. Layered with complex flavors of dark fruit,vanilla, oak, and burnt sugar, Sucré is a robust ale, surely the perfect beer to mark this major milestone.

750ml bottle. Poured a brown color with an off white head. Brown sugary sweet, vanilla, dark fruits, vinous, caramel, and wood. Another one I had no problem finish myself even though it was a big boy.

16 jan 2015, tap at the Bruery. Brown and faintly murky. Nose is winey, sour cider vinegar, raisins and fruit cake, and noticeable alcohol. Med body and mildly fizzy. Sweet up front but bitter nut flavor overpowers. Raisins throughout. Weird bitter taste that lingers. Ok.

sample at Crabbapple bottle tasting. caramel colored pour, fuller body, caramel toffee forward, dark fruits, raisins, vanilla. the sweet red wine adds a differnet take from the others. the wine penetrates the sweet base beer a bit. adds a differnt take but still pretty sweet. woody, tannins, red wine richness

Brown pour, cream colored head. Sweet malt up front, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla...the barreling of this seems to have smoothed this out and brought a drinkability to the beer that surprised me. The best version this year.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2014 October 31, 2014 - bottle from the source. Dark brown pour with some head. Aroma was caramel, dark fruit and red wine. Taste was a bit more mellow than the Port version, but the finish was a bit dry and bitter.

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy copper with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong spice, oak, burnt sugar. Medium mouthfeel with nice burnt sugar, sweet raisin, caramel, very good.

bhensonb (11663) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Tap at The Bruery. Pours hazy brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is sweet old wine, alcohol and brown sugar. Full bodied. Flavor is treacle, old wine, like sherry to me. Hint of wood.

DesertDevil (561) - Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2014
On draft at Out of the Park Pizza in Anaheim. Very sweet nose of Madeira wine, a ton of sugar and wet aged wood. Slightly occluded dark copper in color. Over-the-top sweet taste of boozy golden raisins, dates, Madeira and a blend of indeterminable dark fruits. While it drinks hot, it was mellower than expected for being a recent release. Sticky texture. Overall, it’s simply too sweet to enjoy properly; I’m hoping some age will help lessen the sugary taste.

Bottle shared by Phil at weekly tasting. Pours muddy caramel off white head. Nose/taste of boozy dark fruit, oak, red wine, burnt brown sugar, toffee, caramel, vanilla. Full body.
