Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- this has a strong malt aroma Appearance- – A dark brown color with a large head. . Taste- – A malt overload, this has a strong flavor Palate-– this is a medium bodied beer with a creamy texture Overall-– not a horrible example of an English Brown Ale but it was just okay in my book Comments – Thanks to BigLove for sending this one cross-country. This is the sleeper of the Abita line.

This beer really surprised me. When I first tasted it I thought, whoa I made a mistake. But after the first few sips it seemed to do the opposite of what most beers do. It got better, not worse. It is an interesting unique beer with a distinct almost toffee or bubble gum lollipop flavor, which does not sound appealing for a beer. But in its own way it is really good. Head minimal mouthfeel meh, but taste a pleasant surprise. To top it off it is almost as smooth and easy to drink as a big box american lager beer (water).

Nice deep copper brown color, head quickly dissipated. Kind of bland flavor but still not a bad brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Birra ordinaria, marrone intensa Con schiuma color caffellatte. Odore di orzo, liquirizia e poche noci, che si susseguono nello stesso modo anche in bocca. Corpo snello e tessitura acquosa. Birra bevibile

Bottle; Love the dark color, but the taste doesn’t match the rich dark look. After taste is flat. Head disappeared too quickly.

ARH (558) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a plastic cup. The aroma is quite damp with notes of caramel, fig, and a distinct dirt / earthiness to it. There’s chocolate lingering as a secondary aroma with some grains late. About midway through the glass a distinct aroma that I could only relate to a "wet dog smell" came through. It poured a dark mahogany color with a medium tan ring that had a soapy quality to it with a light, dusty surface layer. A light lacing is left on the cup. The taste is a medium bitter and light sweet. Creamy carbonation give the beer a smooth texture with it’s medium-light body. The flavors are mostly fig, toast, and caramel with a burnt and sugary note in there at the finish. It’s kinda woody, too. The aftertaste is a syrupy and cloying taste which turns to burnt coffee late.
