Overall, it is an great and balanced beer. Smell is nice and clean, mouthfeel is appropriately carbonated and adequately full. Not too sweet, bitter, or dark, but a good balance of all three. Fairly easy drinking and refreshing. Got a growler full of it.

A: Poured smooth. Small off white head that died really fast. Very little lacing. Amber to dark brown depending on the light.

S: Some toffee malt. Toasty chocolate notes. Certainly on the sweet side. Really liked how bright it is.

T: Holds really true to the smell with almost a smoky after taste.

M: Smooth but a little flat. But it sits well the more you have.

O: So far my favorite Abita. Low ABL % so it's kinda like a dark sweet session beer. Nice change up if you are getting hopped out. While there are better representations of this style this beer is typically a great value pick.
