COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big boozy bourbon and American oak aromas combined with soft chocolate malty undertones. Complex malt flavors framed in oak, with hints of dark chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, coconut and just a touch of dark cherry. This is definitely a sipping beer, best served in a brandy snifter. This ale pairs well with dark chocolate and sturdy cheeses.

Note: Sucaba is the beer formerly known as Abacus until the Winter 2012 release.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2013
2012 vintage Bomber. Glowing caramel pour with a slight fizzy head. Aroma is fruity, very boozy, some bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, dried fruits abound. Mouth feel is slick, oily. Very hot, but loads of dried fruits and bourbon in the flavor, very refined. Tasty but very boozy.

ICEatALAMO (1329) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2013
'12 vintage bottle. The pour is a deep copper with little head. The aroma is strong of bourbon with hints of toffee. The taste is big sweet booze upfront. Mellows out a bit throughout the drink. Gives a nice warming effect, a good sipping beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lukaduke (3123) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Pours a rich brown copper color with a finger of khaki foam that slips away quickly. On the nose its soft brown sugar, molasses, touches of toasted malts, bourbon, vanilla bean, tobacco and fig. The palate matches the nose beautifully and the mouthfeel is spot on for the style rich round silky yet soft with light tight bubbles that clean the mouth on the finish. Wow !

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2013
2013 Release. Aroma is caramel, bourbon, wood, and a definite heat that I can feel in my nostrils. Pours a very sexy dark amber with actively "fizzy" carbonation that fades quickly. Flavor is sweet caramel, then some bourbon-y notes mixed with a definite wood and smoke characteristic and towards the end a nice line of heat on the back of the throat. Palate is just a tad thin though letting it warm up increases the overall "weight" this has on the tongue. Overall, this is still a great beer, some discount it due to its lack of hops and its leaning towards an English Barleywine style rather than an American Barleywine style. I think its damn good and needs to be in my cellar in multiples.
