Bomber poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass
A: Poured a very dark brown, almost black. Good 2 fingers worth of head that settles to a thin layer with fantastic lacing from start to finish.
S: Well it is not surprising I'm getting a big hit of Vanilla, followed by a mix coffee, toffee and some roasted malt.
T: A lot like the smell here. .. Starts with a hit of vanilla then the next coffee really kicks in with a little hint of roasted malt. It gets a little weak in the middle but finished with a very nice vanilla aftertaste.
M: Sadly it started and a little watered down with little carbonation but got creamier as it warmed up. In the end I liked it.
O: I pretty good little beer, I like the mix of coffee and vanilla. Pretty easy to drink with a hearty ABV. One bomber will do you, worth looking for if you can find 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.
