-it poured a dark brown with a tan head on top that was a bit home brew looking
-there wasn't a big smell here. some malt sweetness that leaned towards a dark bread type of smell and a hint of vanilla in the background
-the vanilla taste comes in nicely through the middle and it is more prominent than i would have expected. around this is an english brown type of malty sweetness with a bit of roast in there as well
-mouthfeel was a bit light in the body, and the carbonation gave the right kind of tingle...on my palate
-this beer ended up being a lot more flavorful than i was imagining. it was a great price at 3.99, so i thought i would give it a shot and it was worth it

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.
