Note: This listing is for the Rum 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.

Rum Barrel 2014 acquired via RS enjoyed at 45F in stemware. I finished this beer and then realized it was 17%..oops. feeling good #NeckBeardthings

A - Appearance is similar to other versions but this one has more chocolate color.

S - Nose is so sweet, lots of cocoa, clove, spice and caramel. Great oaky nose, lots of sweet.

T - You taste the booze but it’s much more refined than last year’s anniversary ale. lemon, sweet, burnt brown sugar, chocolate, sea salt and macadamia nuts. Nice pistachio and obviously rum finish. Oak throughout

M - Obviously it’s a boozy beer but I appreciate how everything here is coming together.

O - I like that Sucre (base) is so darn good this year and the rum addition is fantastic. Looking forward to trying more of these variants.

Bottle pours black with brief tan head. Aroma really resembles the base Sucre with musty old ale scent. Rum predominates in the flavor with sweet rum plus vanilla, caramel, toffee, molasses. Finish mainly a continuation of the taste with a cold sharp alcohol sensation. I liked it quite a bit.

On tap @ The Bruery. Mahogany pour with no head. Smells of rum, vanilla, and sweet potato pie. Kind of spicy, which is nice. Flavor is nice and sweet at first with lots of spicy rum and vanilla. Tons of vanilla and caramel. Somewhat boozy on the finish. Not bad.

Bottle, 06/27/2014. Pours dark mahogany, light cream frothy head, settles eventually, moderate build up of lacing around the glass. Aroma is dark bread, brown sugar and caramel, sweet dark fruits, vanilla, strong rum notes, some heat. Taste is thick creamy caramel, crystallized brown sugar, rum raisin, moderate alcohol lends some spice. Thick, chewy body. Nice.

It has a slight resemblance to the other bois/sucre based beers, but this mostly rum.

ABUSEDGOAT (2336) - California, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Reddish brown color, moderate head, good lace/retention, especially for the massive alcohol content. Aroma is chewy caramel, darker sugar, darker fruit, oak, vanilla, alcohol. Full bodied, sweet, sugary, moderate alcohol, yummy.

Picked up from The Bruery May 28 drinking June 2 so pretty fresh. Poured from bottle into a Bruery snifter. Aroma is RUM, dark fruits, molases, brown sugar, and sour cherries. Appearance is dark brown with a half finger tan head that dissipated quickly. This beer allows no light to pass through it. Taste ... is just as it?s aroma. This is sweet but not overhearing to me though some might find it too sweet. Palate is smooth and somewhat thick and viscous. At 17.5% abv it is not too noticable but as you drink the entire bottle it jumps out at you. This is a sipper and I suggest you share this. Overall it is a winner everyone should have the opportunity to try.

Part of our RS score picked up Thursday 5-28 at The Bruery poured June 2 into The Bruery snifters darkest brown with minimal head. Aroma is powerful rum followed by vanilla. Flavor is burning alcohol of dark fruits like sweet fermented prunes in a vanilla syrup. Overall a monumental brew of above average proportion. Hubba!
