Tried this beer tonight poured into a regular pint glass. Beer was served fairly cold out of the fridge.
A – The beer poured a dark brown with a decent 1 finger off-white head. Head retention was pretty good with decent lacing. Finished with a fine ring of lingering bubbles.
S – Light hint of chocolate, some sweet maltiness, a little toffee and caramel. I was surprised by the lack of vanilla.
T – Very malty brew. Lite hints of toffee and chocolate. The chocolate flavor lingered the longest with no hop bitterness to be found. The vanilla is non-existent.
M – It was smooth but a bit watery for such a dark beer. Medium carbonation.
O – I expected more from this beer. Not that impressive. It really reminded me of an average Brown Ale. I really wanted more vanilla in the flavor profile and it just didn’t get there.

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.
