Poured a brown body with two finger foamy head (offwhite, khaki, couldn't tell b/c it was lowlit bar) that left some lace patches on glass. The aroma is not only boozy and woody (one could say oaky and bourbon/vanilla but reminded me a bit of port wine(not that I'm expert about port wine), in that there is a dark fruit aroma like plum, raisin, toffee, figs, grape and the barrels (again). The beer is woody smooth but heavy, definite sipper, and one gets some booze and heat but this beer is not bleeding alcohol. Sweetness comes from toffee, caramel, figs, and grape. These tastes balance with each other and the bourbon/vanilla edge in there works as well. Finishes a little hot and overall this is a quality crafted high ABV ale that is a must try.

This is a really good beer. Pours so dirty! Almost grainy. Drinks like a barleywine. Bourbon, cola, yes, yes...my favorite from the previous reviews is "cardboard". Ha, right, a little bit! Sure, yes, it's sweet - welcome to The Bruery. It's damn delicious.

Joined the Preservation Society this year, was given the chance to buy some of the Sucre variants. Hadn't had the regular yet, so that's all I bought. Kicking myself now.

Odd that this is unfiltered and so relatively uncarbonated. I wasn't sure I liked it at first, a little sweet and unbalanced, but as it opened up it became more integrated and rounded. Old ale for sure, and -eventually- remarkably subtle for the huge abv. Still, just a middling success, particularly from a brewery which I enjoy so much.
