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.

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.

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.

October 31, 2014 - bottle from the source. Dark brown pour with some head. Aroma was caramel, dark fruit and red wine. Taste was consistent with aroma, but very sugary and strong port wine in the finish.

(750ml bottle) clear light copper, soapy tan fine bubbles. Nose of cherry, leather, raisin, burnt dark fruits. Taste is ridiculously complex, rum raisin, caramel, brown sugar, cherry, leather. Such a great beer. Somehow manages to avoid all hints of alcohol at 15%+. Wow.

brystmar (1289) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Gorgeous pour: ridiculous lace and head for an old ale. Hearty port barrel; perfect booze/sweetness blend; beautiful appearance. Touch astringent at the end without negatively affecting the experience. Tasty.

Bottle. Pours cloudy chestnut, small beige head that slowly dissipates and laces well. Aroma is vinous, toffee, caramel, oak, vanilla. Flavor is medium plus sweet, light bitter, vinous, malty. Hella hot. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Did I say hot?

bhensonb (11367) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Pours hazy brown with a slight tan head. Aroma of dark grapes and brown sugar. Full bodied. Flavor is rather grapey which cuts into the treacle a bit. Some heat. Pretty sure there’s some wood. Very nice.

Light copper/amber pour, with a thin fizzy light tan head. Very sweet, brown sugar, oak, grape, alcohol, toffee, and some port sweetness. Quite a sipper.
