COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Note: This listing is for the Port 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.

From a bottle. Pours clear ruby brown with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like booze, raisins, red wine, earthy, woody, dried dark fruits. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like red wine, raisins, earthy, woody, and dried dark fruits.

dogfishho (646) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2015
Really stemless integration of raisins and grapes into the sweet profile of Sucre with a tinge of oxidation on the end to clean it up. The port comes through much stronger than I expected.

Poured a brown. Reddish, murky color with minimal head. Couldn’t see any bubbles coming up from the bottom. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. No retention. Not docking this as much as half of it was finished yesterday, certainly affecting the look.

(Smell - 4.38) Tasted very good, even better than the smell. Got plum, leathery tobacco, dates, port win, caramel, toffee, purple grape, woody malts, sour fruit, light chocolate, vanilla and sweet sugar. (Taste - 4.50) Medium body. Sticky texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Long, smooth, warming finish. Just fantastic. (Feel - 4.88) This was just a great beer. I can’t stop thinking about it. Lovely. (Overall - 4.50) 4.48 99 A

750ml bottle. Poured a deep brown color with an off white head. Brown sugary sweet, vanilla, dark fruits, wood, caramel and some vinous qualities. Is there some alcohol there, yeah but it is 15% - yet I had no problems finishing this one all to myself ...

Smooth, rich aroma. Raisins, figs, candied pecans, soft vanilla, grape jelly, a bit of velvety oak. Maroon-brown hue, fizzy tan head. Flavor is a bit tangier -- pronounced sugary grape flavor, figs and raisins again, touches of brown sugar, maple. Long, very sweet finish. The port barrel aging allows more of the base beer to shine through, which is great -- I feel it’s one of the better old ales around, and all the bourbon-aged versions the Bruery is putting out really overpower that.

sample at Crabbapple bottle tasting. caramel colored pour, fuller body, caramel toffee forward, dark fruits, raisins, vanilla & the port adds a nice twist the old ale base beer sweetness .Interesting, boozy.

daknole (10103) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Medium brown pour, light creamy head. Quite sweet up front, as all sucre are, brown sugar, honey, vanilla, oak, butterscotch, sweet port notes are nuanced in the back. The base beer shows well here.
