Firestone Walker Sucaba:

Appearance: Nice amber dark brown, lovely. Little head, but I poured gently out of reverence.

Smell: Absolutely wonderful. Raisin, plum cherry on chocolate. Brown sugar, and just a hint of alcohol on the back end. This is a very fragrant beer.

Taste&Mouthfeel:Wow this is like a liquid burnt caramel and brown sugar filled chocolate from Sees Candy! The liquid is thick, rich, full in body and mouth coating. Every crevice on my tongue screams with taste. Low carbonation, as there should be, is just enough. This is like a dark fruit molasses syrup and just tiny hints of chocolate nips. Not too sweet though, the alcohol from the strength of the beer greatly curbs any residual sugars that overwhelm the tongue. It's layered and complex, with great power in the mouth.

Overall: This could be poured over ice cream as a high end dessert it's so delicious! Probably one of the best beers I've even had. For me it's a little heavy, so not an every evening type of beer, but I feel very lucky I tried it, and cannot wait for the second one to age a few years. With the depth of what I tasted today, that will be one special bottle!

Serving type: bottle
