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.

Bottle. Pours deep ruby with a big head that settles quickly. Nose is strong on bourbon with some deep caramel notes and candied fruit. Taste also highlights some oak and dark cherry notes with a slight chocolatey aftertaste. Rich and syrupy. Complex and delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

what a nice brew for my 1500th rating! pours a dark brown with a ruby tint, a small beige head that dissipates, and a slight lacing that hangs out for a while. smell is of wood, bourbon, caramel, barley, a little sweetness, belgian chocolate, and some brown sugar. taste is a little sweet, caramel, a little chocolate, oak, coffee, grain, molasses, and dark fruit. ends sticky. overall very well done.

Kevin (2194) - Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazed ruby brown with a big whitish head that goes away fast One of the worst smelling beers Ive encountered in a while. Smells of nail polish remover old meat and farts. Strangely tastes not too fucking shabby. Vanilla and a savory wood note accent the Chocolate covered cherry note well. Just cant get past that smell.

csaso (2179) - Missouri, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 2012 vintage - small foamy head, very dark amber color, aroma is strong alcohol, malt, oak, vanilla; tase is similar with added coconut notes - very complex beer of course, but very good. Definitely strong in the alcohol department, so drink slow!

Arayaga2 (2158) - portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 30, 2011
UPDATED: APR 26, 2012 Cola brown with minimal tan head, and a bit of yeasty sediment Aroma is. marshmallowy, chocolatey and bourbony in the most devine sense of the word. Taste is the same, and finishes in cherry cordial notes, with boozy warming. I could drink this at room temperature, and be quite happy. $15/220z (celebratory: "Modernist Cuisine" arrived) Edit: Now that its called Sucaba, it seems a bit hot and harsh in the alcohol department, without the mellow refinement I recall from before. Still very good, but just not great. Rating stays, along with my fond memory. (celebratory: Rammstein Concert!)

Bomber thanks to PintPlease.
Appearance : Deep clear amber with small white head.
Aroma : Big sweet malt with fruity hops. Light resinous notes. Very light oxidation maybe. Light licorice.
Taste : Licorice with sweet fruity plums and raisins. Awesome caramel with some resinous hops. Finish has a lot of raisins with light resinous hops. Not much alcohol.
Overall : Wow this was good. Awesome sweetness balanced with the resinous hops ans the light alcohol. Delightful caramel. The Bourbon is not very present but adds to the complexity and to the richness. Very well balanced and very tasty. My kind of Barley Wine.

[Bottle] Deep mahogany hue. Big raisin, prune, malty aroma. Deep complex palate, plenty of english toffee, pruney malts combined with a tempered citrussy finish. Notes of licorice and chocolate add some complexity and depth. Burnt treacly aftertaste too.
