2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
What is there to say about this beer. Nothing ordinary or extraordinary. It kinda just exists on its own. Doesnít really have a head. A caramel taste but with no kick or modest wash down. Simple beer. I drank one in NOLA and if I ran into it again it would not be on my mind. An easily forgettable beer. Yawn!!!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Pours a nice brown color with small cream colored head. Aroma was roasted malt, sweetness and a little hop spice. Taste is darker then you think with coffee, roasted malt and toffee. Good balance with a nice clean bitter finish.

Very good beer. Poured out of the bottle with a little head. The aroma was very good and you could smell it was a dark beer. Really enjoyed the taste. Good finish and very smooth and itís not a heavy beer at all.

Nutty caramel roast smell, taste with coffee, chocolate, with balanced bitterness, somewhat slimy and bland, easy drink, no complex.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear ruby dark brown with a caramel colored head. The head retains well. Nice looking beer. Aromas of fudge and fig. Mouthfeel is full, but not thick. After being a little cottony, it becomes wet and slick. The flavor is comprised of chocolate fudge and a bit of blueberry and fig. Iíve seen this beer in the fridge of beer stores all over the country. I was so upset with Abita that they never produced (at least distributed) their Pecan Ale again that I just never gave buying this beer a second thought. Iím really pleased I saw it in singles today and picked one up. It is very nice. Reminds me of a British stout.

Pours a dark reddish brown. Tasted a little flat but might have been the tap. Nothing special

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a thin looking brown. Pretty malty in the nose, no real hops detected. Pounds pretty good, but still shitty overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hard to believe I hadnít rated this. Had it several times over the years, but guess I hadnít picked it up to rate because Iím not a brown fan. Anyway - brown pour with thin light tan head. Aroma is muted brown sugar and roasted malts. Tastes are sweet toffee, grain, cocoa. Pretty drinkable. Finishes hoppy/chalky. Nice enough.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle - pours dark amber with khaki head and good lacing. Nose is caramel and roast. Favor adds dark chocolate and nuttiness. Medium body. Moderately sweet and bitter for a balanced finish, but still on sweet side for the style. Slight coffee aftertaste. Label says 5.6% ABV. Something tells me the water for this beer was subpar.
