3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy dark reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, chocolate, light roast, light nuttiness, herbal, and slight raisin. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark malts. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, chocolate, brown sugar, light nuttiness, roast, herbal, and slight raisin. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, chocolate, light nuttiness, and brown sugar on the finish for a short bit. Very nice malt flavor balance that is fairly robust, with good complexity; and zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good brown ale. Nice balance and robustness of malt flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to shaker glass, pours reddish brown, two finger beige head, some lace and decent retention. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is mainly sweet with just a touch of bitterness. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, mouth feel is a little thin. Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of toffee, roasted chocolate malt, nuts and brown sugar. It’s alright, nothing out of the ordinary.

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.
