3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour was a dark murky brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light brown head that receded into a few puddles of residue that produced some good spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a dark roasted malt, a mild resin hop and an earthy yeast with notes of chocolate, coffee, molasses and a hint of toffee.
The taste was lightly sweet and superbly malty with notes of chocolate and molasses from the start with the finish having a mild hoppy taste and a nice dose of coffee at the end. The flavor lasted a nice long time letting the malty coffee flavor which had a hint of hoppiness, settle in.
Mouthfeel was medium in body with the texture being rather creamy and having a mild carbonation.
Overall a bold, robust, full tasting brew that had just a light hint of hops which offset everything rather nicely.

Bottle at a salamander party. Cocoa, malty, sweet, brown sugar, slight nutty aromas and flavors. Passable brown, but probably wouldn’t get again.

Draft @ Crowne Plaza. Slightly sweet aroma. Clear, dark brown color (like root beer) with off white head that fades. Sweet flavor, kind of thin body. Not a bad brown ale, but could have a little more complexity.

Just not at all appealing. Bad taste and even a worst aftertaste. Won’t be having again.

Picked this up in Dresden a few months ago. I can’t recall having seen any Abita beer since New Orleans 2005 so I jumped at the chance. Wish they would have had the full range. This was a pretty decent Broon ale. Better than e RB scores would suggest but probably worse than I remember it being. Dark fruity malt. treacly. I enjoyed it.

Bottiglia 35 cl. Colore marrone scura con schiuma beige, poco allaccio al bicchiere. Aroma di malto e leggermente nocciole. Idem in bocca, anche se poco incisiva. Molto "watery", corpo leggero. Gradevole, anche se da Abita mi aspettavo di più.

From a 355ml bottle on 16/4/2016. Pours a deep brown with a big head. the nose is very, malty, with caramel, toffee and nuts. The flavour follows suit. More caramel, toffee and nuts, with molasses and treacle. Has a very mild bitterness, fullish body and modest carbonation. This a nice , quite sweet brown ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Saturday Shirt and poured into a pint glass. Brown in color with tannish head. Aroma has some nuttiness and malty notes. Taste is very mild with some minor raisin sweetness, slight roasted malt, and a little bitterness. Mouthfeel is thin with a quick finish. Nothing too interesting going on but drinkable. Turbodog sounds like a ballpark food which is appropriate for the Twins home opener today.
