3.55/5 rDev -7.6%
Poured into a pint glass pitch black, with a creamy off-white head.
Smells of sweet toasty malts, and dark caramel.
The taste is of burnt and roasted barley with a peppery bite of carbonic acid. The backbone of this brew is a sweet an syrupy flavor with similar caramel notes to the aroma. Medium-thick body with a viscous and silky mouthfel.
Good, but lacks depth.

Served at the Half Shell Oyster House, Gulfport, MS
A: Black with a half finger tan head that settled nicely. Significant lacing.
S: Nothing right away. As it warmed, I picked up smokey chocolate malts.
T: Follows nose with a dash of salt on the end. Let this one warm up for maximum taste. The smokey malts really shine. Smooth. Sweet. Robust. A dash of caramel. More regular than imperial.
M: Medium with chewy carbonation.
O: One of Abita's better offerings. And a great deal at $2 a glass during happy hour. Went well with my shrimp and oyster po-boy.
