Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Aromas of grain, chocolate, brown sugar and molasses. Taste is fairly sweet on the palate. Great balance. Rich and full-bodied flavor with average carbonation. Solid brown ale with a nice malty finish.

Bottle - 355ml. Very dark brown body with a thin beige foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with roasty and woody hints. Its good malty/hoppy taste carries woody, roasted cereals, and some subtle liquorice notes. Ends with a decent bitter/roasty finish. Enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear dark brown with auburn hues and a small light-brown head. Aroma of nuts, roasted malt, caramel and a touch of chocolate. Flavour pretty much follows the aroma but is milder then the aroma leads you to believe. It has quite a dry finish. Body’s a little flat and light.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12 ounce bottle purchased as part of an Abita variety 12 pack from Jeff’s Marathon, tasted on April 5, 2015. Dark brown hue, strong malty aroma, moderate malt flavor with chocolate, coffee and toffee elements. Some chemical notes keep this from getting a higher score. Still, better than I remember it from the mid 90’s at Abita’s brewpub.

This shit brown. Got head, not like a BJ but foam. Smells like some swwwweeet lousiannnnn sugahcane and a little bit uh mohlahsis. Smells finer than miss Louise’s sweet tea, who eee. Roll tide. Tastes like somebody done toasted something tasty and made it a beer, but with caramehl. Uh huh. Caramehl. When this gets in mah mouth, it makes me wanna dance a jig. I reckon this would be great with squirrel and dumplins. Or maybe during a date with mah sister. Roll tide.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Dark brown with ruby highlights, almost cola in colour. Light brown head is dense and has cling. Gobs of lacing down the sides.
S: Sweet malts in the aroma. Fruit cake, chocolate, coffee.
T: Flavor is the same as the aroma. Rich and smooth, full bodied with moderate carbonation. Gives you the impression of a dense loaf of bread with touches of chocolate and coffee.
AT: Dark Chocolate and Coffee at the end.
