Poured into a pint glass from a bomber.
A - Pours a medium brown with ruby highlights. Fluffy mocha sodapop like head that fades quickly. Not much in the way of lacing.
S - Very sweet malt aroma with a noticeable alcohol presence. A more nutty aroma develops as the beer warms.
T - Light nutty flavor with a hint of caramel, maybe some toffee, and some light vanilla to finish it off. The vanilla is very faint at first but comes out a bit more once the beer warms up.
M - Medium bodied, but a little thin for the style IMO. Medium carbonation and very smooth and clean.
D - Not a bad beer and definitely different than just another brown ale. Unique flavor but the body could use a little boost. Again, this beer is much better once it warms up a bit.

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.
