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!!

On draft at Simzy’s LB poured into tulip. Nearly opaque chocolate brown with a tan ring that revives with a swirl of the glass. Aroma is of coconut, dried fruit, bourbon, caramel, brown sugar, and vanilla. Taste is outstanding with strong fruit and caramel sweetness and mild barrel wood bitterness. Full body, silky texture, surprisingly moderate carbonation, and a sweet boozy finish. Excellent!
