From 11/15/14 notes. Got this in the RS this year. Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip.

Pours a deep caramel brown color with one finger of light tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Toasted malts, caramel malts, oak, bourbon, coconut, vanilla, wood, burnt malts, toffee, and sweet dark fruity malts. Medium to full body and low carbonation, actually very smooth. Not too hot, almost a tiny bit tart in the taste. Very sweet as expected.

Overall not too hot which is nice, but not my favorite version. Honestly, I would just prefer the "normal" Sucre. Worth trying once though.

Woody. Slight acidic twang. Reminiscent of young Fred from the Wood.

Pours translucent reddish copper. The 1/4 inch khaki head fades to a thin ring on top and leaves spotty lace.

The smell is of caramel, pipe tobacco, brown sugar, raisins and booze.

The taste is of caramel, apple, brown sugar and bourbon.

The texture is heavy bodied with medium carbonation.

Sweet with an unexpected apple tartness. Like a bourbon soaked caramel apple. Also, more carbonated than expected considering its high ABV.

On tap at The Bruery in Placentia, CA.

Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, vanilla, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly tart caramel, toffee, brown sugar, vanilla, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with an interesting slight amount of tartness in the flavor.

Serving type: on tap.
