A: Pours a cola color, brown with red highlights. Finger of tan head recedes, leaving nice lacing and foamy cap.
S: I'm getting hardly any vanilla out of this. In fact, if you sat this in front of me and said it was normal Turbodog, I would never know. Nutty, caramel/toffee, just a slight bit of vanilla.
T: Same as with the nose, almost indistinguishable from Turbodog. Nutty, caramel..maybe a little chocolate. Oh yeah... the faint vanilla that if I didn't know was there , I'd never notice. With all that said, this isn't a bad tasting beer.
M: Medium bodied, good carbonation..almost creamy.
O: This isn't a bad beer, but I had hoped for something a little more special for their 25th...then again, for $5/bomber, you can't bitch.

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.
