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.

At Bruery Sucré Tasting. Same limited head formation as the others, colour a tad darker than the New American Oak version, more like the Tequila version. Aroma has the same basic characteristics as the NAO version, expectedly, but is a bit dominated by a strong, almost glue-like alcohol presence, as in cheap white rum. More wryness in the mouth as well, strong alcohol flavour, yet less outspoken than in the Tequila version. White rum flavour lingers. Boozy like the others, but equally complex.

FlacoAlto (4127) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Sampled September 2014
Huge aromas of concentrated brown sugar, ample caramelized nutty notes, lots of sweet sherry, even port notes, concentrated prune notes, a touch of raisin sugars, molasses that leans towards licorice somehow, and amaretto.

Somewhat sweet up front, but it gets sweeter towards the finish. Huge concentrated brown sugar notes, sweet sherry character that contributes a dark nutty notes, candied nuts, sweetened caramelized prunes / figs. This is a beer that definitely warms the belly, and the throat, as I am drinking it I can feel the warmth pervading from my stomach, through to my face.

Tasty enough in small doses, as with most of these Bruery beers, this is quite sweet, rich, a bit on the cloying side, but ok in small doses.

baraciisch (2726) - California, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Dark mahogany brown in color... Aroma of caramel, butterscotch, toffee, rum barrel spices... Flavor is sweet toffee and caramel, lots of rum barrel notes and spices throughout... Still a fair amount of heat a year out, but definitely more mellow than it could be... Nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (9214) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 1, 2015
a little too boozy as the rum is over the top in nose and flavor. too bad, cause it seems like a good rum and would be well over a 4 if it was toned down a bit.

Just like for BT, the rum barrel does an uncanny job of augmenting the sweetness without adding to it. Nice, subtle spicy finish added to the profile. Yum
