A - Beautiful mahogany brew. Small, tan head appears for only a moment. Leaves sort of a thin film.
S - Yes! Makes me want to dive right in. Tons of sweet vanilla and plums. Some oak, and a good sense of alcohol.
T/M - Follows the nose really well. Vanilla, slight coconut, and raisins plump with booze. Hints at some brown sugar notes. Medium to full-bodied. Low carbonation. Definite sipper, or split with a buddy or two.
O - So glad Colorado finally gets FW. Can't wait to revisit this on a cold winter evening. Will definitely get more next time.

A - Very dark ruby red. Head was a a little soapy and coarse-grained for my liking.
S - Predominantly sweet and fruity. Fruitiness is of raisins and sherry. Sweetness is of maple and caramel. My favourite part of this beer.
T - I'm picking up the sherry-fruitiness from the nose, although not any one fruit in particular. Not as sweet as I would have expected and not particularly sweet overall. I was hoping for a little more vanilla, a little more coconut and a little more spice. Where this beer is not found wanting is in tobacco flavours. This beer had me racking my brain to see if I had a cigar stashed somewhere in the house. It's sort of dirty and a tad leathery but I like it. A little bitter malt and bitter bourbon on the finish as well.
M - Thick enough, but like the rest of the beer it's just not quite there.
O - At first I was quite disappointed, however this beer definitely benefits from time spent in the glass. The most relatable beer I've had to Sucaba lately was Fremont's Bourbon Abominable, which for me, was clearly the superior beer. This was malty, sweet and sherry-like with nice tobacco notes, but I wanted more bourbon, coconut, vanilla, oak and spice. Sadly it did not live up to expectation.
