A- nice brown color with a slight head
T- strong with hops and malt flavor along with chocolate and caramel. some citrus which always is a winner.
M- I expect it to have more presents, be a little stronger but it doesn't linger.
O- I am one who likes it, one who will recommend it.

This was a bottle I bought in New Orleans last May and forgot about. Sat in my beer fridge at about 45 degrees since then.

Pours dark amber color in snifter. Off-white head that lingers well. Lots of lacing.

Smell has lots of hoppy citrus. Pine, grapefruit and some lemon.

Taste follows the smell well. Nice bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel has moderate carbonation and a very dry finish.

Overall I did'nt expect much from this because it was so old and I have heard that ABA should be had fresh. It seems to have aged very well. Held its hoppiness well. Glad I did'nt throw this out.
