2.58/5 rDev -29.3%
Pours brown with a small tan head, with fair retention and spotty lacing. Smells like toasted malt and nuts. the aroma is light.
Tastes just like it smells with toasted malt and nuts. Just like with the aroma, the taste is too light, and I can detect only a little sweetness.
Medium bodied, average carbonation. Mostly just boring and bland.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a dark burgundy color with great clarity given its shade. I like its head - a three finger light tan color with nice retention, and excellent texturing. Even after a while, it still remains a half finger high, leaving very nice, thick lacing down the side of the glass.
S: Toasted caramel malts and chocolate. Very faint in general - there's nothing wrong with it per se, but it's so aromatically boring.
T: Again, not really flawed, but so damn mild and even watery. Chocolaty sweetness to start, a candylike midtaste, with a vaguely toasted finish. And that's about it. I can chug it, at least.
M: Clean, damn near bone dry, and thin. This makes it super easy to drink, but the watery factor detracts some. Good carbonation.
O: The ultimate in inoffensive beer. There's nothing bad or good here - really, it just exists in the market place like white bread exists in a grocery store. And money no object, would you rather have white bread or the artisanal 9-grain stuff? Thought so.

Meh. Abita tends to make comparatively, uh, less adventurous brews than your average brewery I've experienced. Of course, that probably has a lot to do with the unique diet that exists in Louisiana. Good for a lot of spicy cajun stuff I guess, but i prefer something hoppy with my spicy food, what I digress.
Brownish pour, can't really identify any identifiable aroma or smell. Not the typical chocolate or coffee flavors you might see in darker colored beers. Not really a sweet beer, just kind of bland. Sorry guys.

12 oz bottle from Total Wine
A - Mahogany with a bit of a chocolaty head. Dissipates quickly.
S - Cinnamon, clove, all-spice, and grass.
T - Anise, grass, and earth.
M - Bitter and dry. Very disappointing. :(
D - The smell and color are nice, but the taste and mouthfeel make this beer undrinkable.
