COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Note: this listing is for the Tequila barrel aged version.

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.

Sample at Kurtkeller 018: Tequila-aged and Let’s Agree to Ruin Our Evening with Pepper beers-tastic 01 on 11/04/2014. Hazy brown pour with a thin but lasting beige head. Small patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of tequila, oak and dark fruits. Full-bodied with flavors of tequila, oak, caramel malt and raisins. The finish is oaky with a tequila aftertaste. Solid beer all around.

October 31, 2014 - bottle from the source. Dark brown pour with some head. Aroma was caramel, dark fruit and tequila. Taste was nicely balanced with the sweetness, wood and alcohol. Unique tasting, but this worked for me.

I can never tell if I actually like beers aged in Tequila barrels or if I’m jut intrigued by the weirdness of them. This one tastes more like Sucre and tequila rather than beer aged in the corresponding barrel. Still tasty although not really integrated at all.

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.

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is real strong tequilla, wood, figs. Thick mouthfeel with strong tequilla, dates, wood, very sweet finish. Really enjoyed this.

Bottle. Color is murky dark red with tan solid head. Aroma of tequila and toffee. Taste is thick sweet burnt sugar with smokey tequila finish. Some vanilla also. The abv is hidden well.

Medium brown pour, foamy light brown head. This beer is hot. It burns. The alcohol, tequila and overriding sweetness just don’t work well in this version. Its amazing how some of the sucre bottles are really really good and others just aren’t worth a damn.

gotta give em credit - im not a big tequila fan but this might be the best tequila beer I’ve ever had. great big base, of course, but they mercifully toned down the barreling in this compared to the usual bourbon bombs and rum. that wouldn’t have worked here, but what they did was add all kinds of off fruity layers to a good beer.
