A : pours a dark brown with the slightest ruby highlights. Thin tan head of tiny bubbles, dissipates almost immediately. Frothy lacing that clears slowly.
S : aromas of chocolate. Dark bread, bubblegum and sweet dark Belgian candied sugar. A faint hop bitterness is present with some faint roasted malts. There is a noticeable alcohol aroma that is pleasant and brings everything together.
T : starts sweet with some brown sugar, caramel and toasted oats. A slight pink bubblegum flavor and finishes with a tiny bit of sharp pine hop bitterness. There's a roasty middle that comes out as it warms. The bubblegum flavor turns to a very nice vanilla as it warns as well.
M : full body that hides the alcohol that is present in the nose. Nice smoothness with a crisp finish.
A really nice beer that is much better after it warms a bit in the glass.

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.
