3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle pours a dark with small but lasting light brown head. Aroma is mostly roasted malts, with some vanilla, oak, chocolate and bourbon. Taste is sweet with a boozy finish. It became easier to drink as it warmed up, but the first sip . Body is full with a slightly sticky mouthfeel and perhaps too much carbonation. I expected more from a barrel aged Imperial Stout, having tried so many great ones.

Abita Bourbon Street Barrel Aged Imperial Stout is a brownish black beer with a thin head of small tan bubbles. Nose is vanilla, oak, caramel, and a little creme brulee. Taste is sweet caramel and vanilla with a bit of the oak and the alcohol on the back end . body is luscious and creamy. a very fine example of the best of blending imperial stouts and bourbon aging.

22 ounce bottle. The beer is a dark brown to black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has wood, oats, bourbon, caramel, nuts, toffee. The taste is mostly sweet and boozy, and has a nice bready oaty character. Bigger body and lower carbonation. Pretty nice.

Thought I’d had this but I have no evidence .. . Pours a dark brown black .. Really happy foam .. Mild bourbon, burnt wood, and ink .. Mouth is, as expected, mild .. Nice and simple finish .. A step in the right direction once again for Abita .. . . Please don’t feed the monkeys!
