Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.
Hey, I'm older than Abita. It's official. ... Now that no one cares, this stuff pours a dark black-brown topped by a finger of tan foam. The nose comprises mild roasted malts, light cocoa powder, vanilla, and sweet caramel. The taste brings in more of the same, with a darker sense of roast, a bit of coffee, a weaker strain of vanilla, and a bit of flowers tossed in for good measure. There's a vague breadiness pervading the background, as well. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a nice enough sweet thing of a beer, nothing special, but one of the better beers I've had from Abita thus far.

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.
