2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear roast red,smallfirm head. Sweet with clean, hard mouthfeel. Evident nutty/woody flavour that I assume is derived from the pecans, Low bitterness. A bit one-dimensional, and the malt profile is well simplistic.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A: The pour is a nice amber/copper color with a thin layer of slightly off-white foam.
S: I found the nose to be fairly enjoyable. A lot of toasted biscuit aromas and a nice nuttiness (presumably pecans) which I was not expecting to be so powerful. There’s a touch of butter/diacetyl as well, however.
T: After a fairly robust nose, the flavors were really a let down. This is very watery and quite mild in terms of flavor. The only thing I pick up is a slight toasted malt flavor.
M: The beer is thin on the tongue with moderate carbonation.
D: I can’t say I was let down, because I’ve never been impressed by Abita, but this started out with some promise and then crashed and burned.

Strongly nutty aroma over caramel malt. Coppery amber color with a white/beige head. Near medium body with mild creamy carbonation. Body thins a lot as the carbonation leaves. Flavor is caramel sweetness with something like nut skin bitter. The finish is a bit watery with nut skin bitterness. Washes prosciutto down nicely. Might be a little rough without the meat.
