Abita 25th Anniversary Vanilla Doublebog: soda-like sound; Appearance: root beer-ish; Smell: malted chocolate cocoa-y; Taste/Mouthfeel: coffee, malt, faint cocoa; smooth taste; pretty good
Poured into a pint glass.

Nearly porter dark with a light beige head that dissipates pretty quickly. Very earthy, dry nose with a hint of chocolate/caramel sweetness. First sip gives rich nuttiness, later develops more caramel character. Malty, but not overly sweet. Some of the earthy character of the nose carries over to the palate. Medium to full bodied. I’m not usually an Abita fan and this won’t really win me over, but it’s better than some beers I’ve had from them in the past.

A: Very dark brown color, and a head forms on top for a time. Carbonation bubbles are very active on the pour, but settle down fairly quickly.
S: Yep, this one is oxidized. Dark fruit aroma and nothing else.
T: Dark fruit oxidization flavors and a hint of paper. Unsurprisingly, therr is no trace of vanilla.
M: Standard feel for a beer of this percentage. Slightly low on the bubbles maybe.
O: Clearly this beer did not hold up to aging. I'm sure it was decent fresh, but but fresh this was not.

Mahogany brown, nearly black and impenetrable to light. Just a wisp of foam. Just a hint of dark malt on the nose. Honestly there's not much aroma here. Caught a hint of vanilla on some later attempts. Dark malt on the forefront and a quick follow up of some vanilla in the aftertaste.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a snifter with a nice 2 in mocha colored head that subsided rather quickly. The beer is a rather dark brown and there appears to be yeast sediment (bottled conditioned beer?) Aroma was a bit of vanilla and caramel but not too strong. Mouth feel is pretty thin, this has been slightly oxidized it seems. Taste is good Nice roasted malt flavor with some chocolate flavor and vanilla undertone, not too sweet. Overall a tasty beer but nothing to write home about. It works good as a dessert beer
