Note: This entry is for the Madeira 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.

Bottle shared at a BOSS meeting. Pours a reddish brown with no head. Aroma is sweet malt dark fruits and slight sourness. Nice beer. I like this one more than the bourbon barrel version. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maderia really doesn’t do anything good for this beer. Despite how awesome it was for BT, it only adds an oxidized sourish note to what otherwise is a nice sweet Old Ale.

DSG (8627) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/18/15] Draught at The Bruery in Placentia. Nice deep reddish amber color with a beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, cookies, vanilla and wine. Sweet flavor with a sourish note, vinous, with dark fruits, caramel and some cookies. Medium to full-bodied, quite rounded. Really good stuff.

Bule (1281) - California, USA - FEB 27, 2015
750ml bottle pours a reddy brown color with a bit of head. Tasted alongside bourbon and rye whiskey barrel aged. More carbonated than the other two. Sweeter and a lot of plum / prune rather than the prominent toffee in the bourbon and rye whiskey.

hopdog (9999) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2015
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.

Blairgus (3399) - California, USA - JAN 16, 2015
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.

swoopjones (6986) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2014
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

daknole (10320) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2014
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.
