3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this on-tap at the Abita Brew Pub in Abita Springs, LA. This is the latest in the Abita Select Series. Poured a brownish/amber color with decent head that dissipated fairly quickly. Aroma was malty and taste had a bready, yeasty quality that I found pleasing. Mouthfeel was good and drinkability was reasonably high.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Was featured as a "Select" at the Abita Brew Pub recently. Lovely rich crimson/black color promises goodness. Flavor is malty and slightly chocolate. Mouthfeel is on the thin and wattery side. Better to wash food down with than to drink by itself. Goes good with pork or beef.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at The Chimes East, Baton Rouge, La. - bright copper pour, little to no head. Neutral aroma - some freash lake water perhaps. Flavor has a slighlty bitter profile, nice and subtle. Some caramel makes its way in there as well. Detect a bit of citrusiness. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Decent.

Strange brew, in that is so clearly tastes like a dry-hopped mix of the amber (thin andflat) and turbo dog (roasted and light. The only advantage this beer has is the larger hop profile,and surprising warmth.
