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.

750ml bottle at share on 6/11/16. Nice medium amber body, small airy head dissipates quickly. Cognac, boozy aroma is a bit over the top at first, but settles down. taste continues with the boozy vibe, and a bit of a sweet burn. Dark grains, and lots of molasses, finishes hot and sweet.

Bottle share, thanks Darrel. Pours a deep auburn brown with a small wispy beige head. Big time sweet aroma of cognac, vanilla, and wood. Taste is rich and full of sweetness. The cognac barrel plays a major role. Vanilla and toffee. Another big sweet desert beer from the Bruery.

750ml bottle pours a reddy brown color with a bit of head. Sweet port flavors and the cognac stands out. Boozy without harshness.

Bottle sample, poured a deep chesnut Brown colour with a non lasting head. Leasing Some small white bubbles on top. Lot’s of thick sweet cognac in the nose, toffee, sweet caramel malts, yeast, burned rubber, and a strong alcohol notice. Taste of vanilla, riped fruits, sweet malts, the cognac barrel adds more fruit notes compared to all the bourbon versions. But somehow i’m getting a rubber note in the end. Can’t say it’s a big improvement on the bourbon versions. It’s even a big more sweet

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is malty with nice fruity notes as well. Good raisin and grape character with a bit of alcohol spice. Light oak and some caramel and toasted bread. Pours similar to the others. Dark, murky brownish red. Moderately sized, tan head with good retention. Light lacing and long legs. Flavor is fairly sweet with quite a bit of malt and toasted bread. Good caramel and toffee. Lots of dark fruit and cognac character. Moderate bitterness with some alcohol spice. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice variant with a good cognac character. This works better than the Portuguese Brandy with more beer character left behind.

brokensail (16342) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle @ Every Bruery Beer Tasting. Hazed copper pour with a small khaki head. Sweet caramel, brown sugar, and vanilla. Definitely some brandy, a bit of white wine, baked apple, and some spice. Flavor is big on the caramel and dark brown sugar. A bit of vanilla, oak, white grape, and brandy. Some sweet cooked fruit, particularly golden raisin and plum. Has some nice characteristics, but as with all of these beers, not something you can drink a ton of.
