Draft. Really disappointed. Poured a light opaque brown with head that dissipated very quickly. Little lacing. Smells of coconut, vanilla, dried fruit, caramelized sugars, malts and a few other things I couldn't identify. Tasted thin in the mouth like most barley wines. Flavors are as above but it didn't knock my socks off. Over hyped before drinking maybe? After taste is vanilla, dried fruit and Barley. Good but not out of this world good.

Easily the best barleywine I've ever had. Can't imagine a better one.

A remarkable Barleywine. Great color, aroman, and flavor. Head dissipates quickly, no lingering foam. Flavour follows the wonderful aroma. Hints of honey, Madeira, whiskey, and toffee. Sweet, malty, and smooth. Enjoyed the 2013.

Murky mohagoney beer with a thin head. Boozy sweet, mint leaves, pear, green apple, molasses.

I stopped by a neighborhood friend's house today to drop off some Ballast Point Sculpin Grapefruit (would recommend this brand also) and boy did he treat me to Sucaba! The bottle looks really neat and the barley wine inside was yummy! Smooth, great scent and wonderful taste! I am very appreciative to have been treated to such a top-notch beer!!
