G: Poured into a pint glass.
A: Dark brown with some copper/red color mixed in. Plenty of head.
S: Mostly typical of the style, although there are more toasty/roasted flavors than would be typical.
T: Too much chocolate, and not enough of the classic "brown" flavor--quite different than what I was expecting.
M: Medium body with plenty of carbonation.
D: This is where this one really suffers. Just not something Iíd like to have more than one of, although it does have some fine points.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours dark brown but clear, quick dissipating head. Aroma is a bit medicinal and somewhat toasty. Tastes roasted with a bit of medium caramel. Aftertaste hints at dark chocolate and also a bit astringent. An example of a Brown ale that should be in the lower 50%.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a deep black/brown color with a medium light tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and nuts. Taste is chocolate, nutty, coffee, and a sweet finish. Could use some more body because, like most of their beers, itís a bit watery.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location/Date:Bottle on April 23rd, 2013.
Appearance: Pours a dark opaque with brown head.
Aroma: Aroma of chocolate, some caramel.
Taste: Light bitterness, nutty, faint caramel.
Palate:Light body, as it must be the Abita water.
Summary: A decent brown ale. Iím always amazed at the lightness of Abitaís brews, probably due to their water. Makes for an interesting variance.
