3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. painted bottle. Popped after the Saints won their 1st Super Bowl. Nice brown, cloudy body, fizzy head. Smell of fruit leather, a little clove, and touch of pipe tobacco. Taste is a little sugary, but not as much as the North Coast Cru d"Or I had last night. Solid maltiness with caramel and toffee. Just a touch of horse blanket, but a slight tobacco aftertaste. Fleeting impressions of cherry, Beeman’s gum and broiled steak. This is barely a year old, but tonight seemed best reason to open it. But this shows some rough spots that would smooth to a complex brew if it were to lay down a while longer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nutty flavored beer with a strong almost smokey-like aroma. Deep auburn caramel color with limited clarity. Very cloudy appearance but not as deep colored as a Guinness. Medium carbonation with zero head at the top of the beer. Deliciously smooth finish that invites a second sip. Abita Abbey Ale is worth a try!

This ones pretty good. NIce sweet aroma and taste. The color is really nice as well. I’ve had this a bunch of times on tap and in the bottle and it’s aways been pretty solid. It has a really good bready sweet taste which makes it easy to drink. Overall good stuff.

Aromas of dried fruit, bread and toffee. It gets a little lost in the carbonation. Copper with off white head. Same notes in the taste. Some spice as well.

its quite possible that my bottle is well past it’s prime. Nice doughy bread like aroma and flavor, with hints of dig and plumb, but not much else to it, and lacking in finish. Ok, but average at best."

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sipping this beer bought from a kitschy bodega on the ground floor of the fabulous hotel I’m staying in at the corner of Canal and Bourbon streets in NOLA. pours a dark scotch-like amber with a minimal white head. Aroma is sweet with notes of over-ripe fruit, apricots, figs and apples. medium body with a slightly off bitterness, notes of caramel and over-ripe banana. finish is slightly boozy. enjoyable but not overly so.
