Got this one at the Bruery pint night at Columbia Ale House. Got it simultaneously with Bois to do a side by side comparison. Excellent appearance, Bois has a slightly dark, richer appearance that I liked but Sucre wins on smell, much richer. Overall I absolutely loved this beer, one of the best I have had but would have to say that Bois was just slightly better.

Poured from a bottle into my glass.
A - A nice murky brown, lot of carbonation, thick head.
S - Bourbon and raisin up front. Dates, black cherry, rye, vanilla, rubbing alcohol, moistened panties.
T - Oak infused black cherry juice, rum, ethanol, plum, prune, fire water, brown sugar, unicorn tears.
M - Feels good, no complaints.
O - This is an ass kicking beer. Starts out sweet and bold, leaves you wanting more. The 16.9% alcohol lets you know it's there by kicking you in the face.

750 ml wax-dipped bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.
A - Sucré pours a muddy pond water brown color that's complete with a well-formed off-white head that surprisingly lasts quite a while considering it's alcohol content!
S - The Bruery's classic bourbon barrel aromatics waft from Sucré with potency, blending in vanilla notes with oak into the robust and malty old ale. Bourbon soaked raisins give the beer a dark fruit complexity before straight alcohol heat finishes out.
T - Molasses and maple syrup wash over the tongue with smoothness, paving the way for dark chocolate-covered raisins soaked in plenty of bourbon. Vanilla bean nuances pull forward from the charred oak barrel as the beer warms up even more; a delicious blend with the bready, malty old ale base.
M - Rich and thick, Sucré has a full body that borders throat coating and would be if it weren't for so much alcohol in this beer, it's almost thin finishing with dryness and a sizable alcohol bite; it's the balancing factor.
O - If it's a booze bomb you're looking for, then look no further. The Bruery's Sucré aged in bourbon barrels doesn't leave any bourbon notes to the imagination as this almost 17% beer drinks more like bourbon than beer. The old ale base is wonderfully malty, working nicely with the bourbon barrel aging but, no where near as nicely as it does in the port barrel, which I greatly prefer.
