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 pours with a dirty murky brown body that supports a nice dark tan head. The aroma offers up plenty of residual sugars, brown sugar dusted stewed plums, caramel covered figs, soft thin rum, oak and molasses drizzled charred wood. The taste is smooth and rich and deep with molasses, some caramel, plenty of sugar stewed dark fruits where a date sensation plays a large role. To midway it picks up a modest degree of boozy barrel rimmed thinly by smooth sweet rum. It gets a bit more boozy into the finish as the rum grows some creating a slightly warming finish. Solid sipper, plenty sweet (too sweet?) but a solid sipper.

chinchill (4327) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Large shared bottle. Boozy sweet aroma with the alcohol more hidden in the taste. Very sweet, this drinks like a beer liqueur. Rather subtle rum flavor. Moderate complexity at best.

Tmoney99 (13590) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2016
Bottle shared by alexsdad06.. Poured cloudy dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, dark fruit, wood and rum aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted dark sweet and rum flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met with a standout beer.

bytemesis (6946) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Bottle, shared among friends on the 4th. Pours a murky brown, as do all in the line, minimal head without a super vigorous pour. Aroma is really rummy, vanilla, dark fruits, toffee, its like a fruitcake in a bottle. Flavor is fully sweet, light finishing bitterness, rum, vanilla and fruitcake. Fairly hot but a truly enjoyable sipper. Full body, thick mouthfeel, not quite making it to chalky.

750 ml bottle shared with Tmoney99, voodoofish65usf and Fifty West. Pours a hazy caramel brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have big sweet caramel malts, toffee, brown sugar, rum, wood, dark fruits, big beer, I got every bit of the 17.5%, still good.

Alengrin (4594) - BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2016
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 (4152) - 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.
