Nice deep brown in color with an off-white head. Aroma is very much like a tootsie roll. Chocolatey taste (tootsie roll-esque) with some vanilla in the finish. A niceroasty ale but not my preference.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; cola with foamy light beige head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and roasted malt. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer.

RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Pours a slightly misty brown/burnt orange, with fingers of off-white head. Smell is of grainy dough, well defined caramel malts, with slight notes of vanilla and even some red fruits. Taste starts with grainy wheat, and unsweetened vanilla, with light notes of bitter toffee on the finish - very subtle English hops (although the hops therein are technically American). Mouthfeel is medium.

22oz bomber pours mahogany colored body that supports a mocha head of foam. The mild aroma has light notes of dark roasted malts, vanilla and then a touch of earthiness. The taste has some roasted malts mixing with vanilla and then earthy to slight pine hop like notes. Underneath those I get a light sweet dark fruity ester like quality.

Wow, very sessionable for an "american strong." The mouthfeel is actually pretty creamy and enjoyable. A decent bit of vanilla but certaintly not a slap in the face. For a beer thats basically an imperial abita turbodog with a hint of vanilla.

Another great beer from Abita. Bit to much vanilla; well balanced. A favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Murky reddish brown pour. Vanilla comes pouring out of this one - aroma and flavor. Very tasty. Medium density palate.

Pours a dark,almost black ruby red color with a dark khaki head with little retention. Aromas of toffee,chocolate & vanilla. Mouthfeel and taste is like it smells....with a very nice smooth vanilla finish. Reminds me of a vanilla porter. Very nice,quite enjoyed this one alot.
