Review from notes. Thanks to Bo for bringing this one.
A: Pours a murky brown color with a small tan colored head on top. Not much retention with minimal lacing down the sides.
S: Very sweet aroma. A good bit of vanilla, toffee, caramel, and a little bit of chocolate.
T: Similarly sweet, almost a reminds me of cream soda from the vanilla. Underneath there is a little bit of caramel and chocolate, but the vanilla is rather strong throughout.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A little too sweet for my liking.
O: Decent beer, but if I want an overly sweet beer, I will reach for something from Southern Tier, which, despite being incredibly sweet, has a bit more to it in terms of mouthfeel and backbone.

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.
