I have had decent ones and some that showed that they donít hold up long in the stores. Bad filtering? Pasteurization? When it is good I enjoy it to a fair degree, otherwise Iím sure you might guess what I think.

Slight toffee, sugary sweet malt flavor, but thin and bland in the finish.

Medium dark color, with average head. Nice malty aroma. To me it taste more like a heavy carbinated porter. Little lacking on the finish.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - NOV 29, 2002
Translucent brown in coloor with a small, quickly dissapating head. AAroma was Sweet and malty, roasty, with a chocolate Back. Flavor was SWEET and malty(too much so even for a stout lover) Something about this beer is wrong, itís tacky and Fake, Like the Flavorings used in cooking, this beer is an immitation.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - NOV 26, 2002
Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. Not much aroma, but I do detect a slight, malty sweetness. Medium bodied with hints of chocolate and toffee in the flavor. A very smooth, easy drinking brown ale with good malty flavors.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 I've seen this in some stores and if i knew it was a brown ale I would have tried it long ago, but nothing on the bottle gives a hint of what the hell this beer is, pours a dark maroonish brown with a thin tan head...slight cocoa/nutty aroma...fizzy, unsweet cocoa bitterness, tad bit too fizzy, thicker than a northern english brown ale but much less hoppy than an american brown..a slight bitterly nutty finish

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2003 The flagship Abita brew, IMO, and the one I keep comin' back to after all these years! I'm never sure quite how to describe this beer. It's certainly no porter, but neither is it a 'nut brown' ale. Hmmm, 'brown ale'...well, it's definitely brown (black, perhaps), and it's an ale. Super roasty, fairly thin body. Appropriately hopped and very drinkable. I think of this as a beer that a college student would brew on a dare. Extreme chocolate malt! Fun beer. I give it a half a point for the name and the ballsy style breaking they've done.
