3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle marked as Sucre Tequila shared with the group at Natifest. Pours a dark copper brown color with a few random bubbles. The aroma and flavor have big caramel, molasses, agave nectar is strong, sweet malts, vanilla, dark fruits, fig, raisins, and alcohol. Some additional, dark chocolate and wood come through. The ABV is noticeable, but doesn’t distract from the beer. These are definitely sharing beers, as I couldn’t see trying to drink a bottle myself.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy brown color with a very small tan head. The aroma has a lot of wood and agave notes as well as some dark fruit and caramel. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of alcohol, caramel and raisin notes up front, but there is also quite a bit of tequila, wood and agave character. Fairly boozy overall. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at Natifest ’14. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted malt, dark fruit and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet alcohol and wood flavor with a medium woody sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer that is excellent for style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2014 RS bottle enjoyed myself on a Sunday. Pour is slightly more creamy and murky than other Sucre variants. Nose is way sweeter and fruity than other variants. You get a definite tequila and rum nose than other variants. This has a lot of tequila taste. It’s dominating and overbearing. Oak, creamy corn taste and sweet agave. Has a very rich leathery finish with the same dark fruits you get from other variants.
