Poured from bottle into tulip.
Pours a very dark brown, but has an amber hue when held up to th elight. Nice thick off-white head, with good lacing.
Smells of vanilla roasted malts. Taste is again, roasted vanilla malts, hints of toasty chocolate and slight bitter. Mouthfeel is a bit more carbonated than I like, but still pretty good. I was always intrigued with this brew because I really like vanilla anything, plus it was only $5 for the bomber. So for $5, this is a great brew. It lacks any real complexity and doesnt really compare to other Strong Ales, but on its own, its very drinkable and tasty. For $5, pick one up...well worth the price.

Had this on tap. Review from notes. Poured quite dark amber, with an off white foamy head. Big, sweet, vanilla, caramel, hint of toffee, pretty dark and tasty. The oak comes through more in the finish. Again, pretty sweet beer but not too cloying. I get a good earthy hop finish.

This is possibly the best Abita beer I've had so far. Dark chestnut, almost black, it has a creamy tan head slowly shrinking.
Aroma is rich darkyl toasty, caramelly barley, hints of vanilla, prunes, hint of coffee.
Taste is nice, rich dark toasted caramelised grain (strong), prunes, hint of coffee candy, vanilla, wood, balanced gently but firm bitterness and sweetness. It is highly enjoyable and easy to drink.
