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.

jeremyh70 (1103) - Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Pours a clear walnut brown with decent head and good lacing. Aroma of chocolate malt and tobacco with a hint of tea. Flavor of caramel malt with tobacco leaf and some vanilla. Some chocolate and booze in finish. Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Very good and complex. One of my favorite barley wines. ---Jeremy H

Pours deep amber with a minimal off white head. Aroma is vanilla & oak with a hint of alcohol. Taste is exactly that and very smooth. Very, very balanced flavors. Exquisite.

Tognetta (951) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 30, 2017
#2016 Marrom avermelhada de leve turbidez, espuma bege avermelhada de média formação e média/pouca persistencia. No aroma vinho, caramelo, lupulo inglês terroso, alcool muito bem inserido. No paladar dulçor intenso e leve/médio amargor lupulado. Corpo licoroso de baixa carbonatação. Final tende ao vinho adocicado, alcoolica, malte fica mais evidente, tudo formando um conjunto muito prazeroso.

Leather, tobacco and some fruit like a motocycle party in an orchid. Plum and a little vanilla, cherry. Molasses. Pours hazy brown with good head. Thick but not overly syrupy. Tangy and sweet finish. Tap at Hazel Firestone event on CBC week.

ALIBALI (2106) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2017
Wahrscheinlich zu frisch. 2016er Fläschchen. Kantig, eckig und doch so unwiderstehlich drinkable....wenn man das junge Alter bedenkt 😉. Alles kommt, Rosine und Tabak geflasht von wollüstigen Metalkupfercitruskicks. Wahrhaftig looooong und sweety Alki. In Jahren wahrscheinlich noch abgefahrener, aber auch jetzt schon ein erleuchtendes BW Spektakel zwischen Fass und Wahnsinn. Jetzt hol ich mir mein Ohr 😉. Rot & Malz!? Ich erhalts 😁. Bomber. 20€. Uiiiii!!

Degustacje @ Silesia Beer Fest
Sucaba Vintage 2016.
W kolorze ciemny bursztyn wpadający w miedź. Piana umiarkowana, doskonale zdobi szkło. W aromacie kolosalnie złożone, bogate, wielowymiarowe. Mamy tutaj rodzynki, toffi, karmel, migdały, cukierki oblane karmelem, tysiące tabliczek czekolady. Na drugim planie figi owoce kandyzowna (morele, figi). Smak podąża w 100%-ach za aromatem. Masa rodzynek, ciemnych winogron, toffi, karmelu. W tle nuty beczkowo - sporo wanilli, trochę drewna. Alkohol w pełni ułożony, a to 2016 rocznik! Słodkie, wyklejające usta i podniebienie. Potężna oleista tekstura.

mgajdaczewa (2144) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 27, 2017
SBF #19 Piękne piwo. Cieliste, ale zwiewne, ciasteczkowe, z nutami wanilii i marcepanu. Półsłodkie. Z kakaowymi naleciałościami. Niezwykle złożone. Nieładnie je potraktowaliśmy pijąc w spartańskich warunkach, ale... i tak pokazało swój geniusz.

Bottle; pours a cloudy caramel color with a khaki head; sweet aroma of caramel, dark fruits, chocolate, wood, and booze; taste is sweet with caramel, dark fruits, and toffee with notes of chocolate, wood, honey, and coconut; dry, boozy finish

3.7
Cybercat (5834) - Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Pours barely translucent chocolate with a thin pale buff head. Aroma offers chocolate, roast malt and caramel tones. Flavor echoes the aroma with stronger notes. Mouthfeel features firm body and peppy fizz. Sucaba one down.

neongolden (1649) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2017
(Tap sample @ CBC 2016 Green Session, Copenhagen) Pours hazy deep amber with a dark cream head. Aroma is sweet, fruity and barrel heavy overall, lots of layers of caramel, toffee, vanilla, toast, bourbon, dried fruits, figs, oak. Flavours follow the nose a lot, rich, almost fudgey toffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted notes, slight chocolate, bourbon, lots of vanilla from the oak, dried and candied figs, berries and dates, tobacco, new oak. A touch of booze and drying from the oak counteract the sweetness in the finish, but it’s still a rich, sweet beer with a full mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Very nice to sip slowly, if perhaps not the best choice at a festival.
