The site was down so long, I’ll have to do this from a rough memory... I didn’t know what to expect from this beer. Had on draft at Beerfest on Bourbon St. New Orleans. Decent head, not too heavy. Has a bit of an abbey aroma, spiced and fruity. Drinks a bit like a barleywine, so I can’t put this in a category. Overall, I really enjoyed it. I haven’t had too much great stuff from abita, but this trip changed my perception.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Orange-amber and clear appearance with a lacy white head. Malty aroma and flavor with notes of caramel and toffee. Medium to full body with a thick mouth feel and a smooth and creamy finish. OK.

"This is not really representative of how much i like the style. This example is just a little overly sweet and grainy, without that distinct liquid bread aspect I so love. Below average for the style. Still ok overall."

roxtersoxter (307) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Pours clear golden with medium tan head out of bottle. Very strong yeast aroma with hints of brandy. Sweet flavor of honey with hint of wheat. Good beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maris (989) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2014
From a 650ml bottle on 17/8/2014 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours a clear olden with a medium head. The aroma features some bready malt and honeyish notes. In the mouth, it’s quite sweet with more honey and some bready malt, finishing with a decent bitter kick and just a hint of alcohol. That said, it’s pretty easy drinking for 8%. Quite good.

Andygator is nice. This Helles Doppelbock is a nice amber color with no head. Has a smooth full mouth feel with a good balance and nice non bitter finish. Like it but watch out like the bottle says sip don't gulp, it has a way of sneaking up

Evolutionary (282) - Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle at tradewinds. Nose is yeast and toffee sweetness. Smooth big mouthfeel and a bit of alcohol bite. Notes of yeast malt raisins and mild hop acridity. Not bad but not great. Fits the genre nicely. ---Rated via my mouth

wmubronco1992 (614) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a medium straw color. White head. Sweet aroma. Flavor is malty and sweet.. Decent body. I may be at odds with some of the other raters, but I found this to be surprisingly good. I wasn’t expecting much but I liked it and would drink it again.

Pours light golden with a off white thick head. The aroma of dough, yeast, and bit of bread. There is a small bit of lacing. It has toffee flavors, yeast, with a dry finish
