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.

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.

Bottle from trade with matboz. Pours a deep red-brown hazy body with a small white head. Nose is sweet strong caramel tones with raisins, toffee and hints of dried fruits. Taste is raisins, marzipan, burnt sugar, hints of smooth caramel and mild chocolate. Some hoppy pine notes, although toned down considerable, are lingering in the back. Full body, soft carbonation. Very, very heavy duty and overall delicious stuff from FW.
