Another, big-bomber pour....slightly hazy, rust / mahogany hue. Thin, creamy tan head, tiny bubbles. Aroma of nut breads, mellow roast pecans, bourbon, yeast, slight vanilla, warm syrup on hot pancakes....yes, I just said that. Definitely a brew that is on the sweet side. If bourbon always tasted like this, I would be a bourbon drinker, for sure. It has a sweet taste to it, but it is very well tamed and subdued. I am guessing that the sweetness is calmed by the barrel aging process. This brew has a great mouthfeel, and is easy on the palate. Great body, slightly creamy, soft carbonation, goes down way too easy....sound familiar? Well, getting back on track here....This is a great beer! I could drink this for breakfast! Makes me think that this is a type of beer they brewed way back in the ages....satisfying, filling and a slight kick at 8.5% abv. Definitely a wonderful after-holiday-dinner brew. Let it warm up a bit, share with your friends and family! Merry Christmas! Cybercat (6341) - Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2017
Pours clear mahogany with a thick buff head. Aroma delivers bourbon, maple syrup, woody, toasted malt, and subtle vanilla and nutty notes. Flavor presents bourbon, maple, vanilla, toasted malt, woody and shy nutty character, an enjoyable ale that is to be sipped and savored. Mouthfeel offers fairly firm and smooth body with jazzy fizz and a woody maple finish. Makes you want to visit New Orleans - better hurry, because what with global warming, Bourbon Street will be underwater in a few decades, and the Saints and Pelicans will have to relocate. crossovert (14135) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2017
Draft. Hazed amber pour. This one is missing some body but otherwise it is a sweet and pecan-forward brew, sugary and bourbonny but strangely drinkable. BHMarc (12) - - NOV 23, 2017
Well balanced light brown ale. Prominent pecan favor. Nice whiskey undertones. Maple is not as noticeable, but overall very tasty and distinct.

Oak, bourbon, and caramel nose. Cloudy rust, thick orange head, nice lace. Caramel, oak, bourbon. Pecan finish. Medium body, easy carbonation. Quite drinkable, a bit more bourbon than I like, but nice nutty base beer.

Tallahassee, Fl - Momo's Pizza - Northside - on tap. Murky, light brown pour. Medium thick, bone-colored aroma, light lace. Aroma has some essence of bourbon, a touch of maple syrup. Bourbon and maple carry over to the flavor, some nuttiness thrown in there for good measure, Kind of candied, slightly boozy. Thick enough mouthfeel.

Inviting, nutty sweet aroma. Fairly dark, hazy brown. Sweet, fruity, gave me the impression of a fizzy barleywine, A woody trailing bitterness. Thinnish body, high octane. On tap, Momos. Alpha10 (863) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
2016/04/23 - Pours a translucent amber brown colour with a foamy, off white head the quickly reduces and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is oak, vanilla, bourbon, toffee, light nutty notes and sweet bread. Taste is oaky-vanilla, light bourbon, sweet bread, caramel and biscuit. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly watery with average carbonation and a long, slightly sweet, lightly warming finish. I was really excited for this one, but found it a little bland.

Bottle from I can’t remember where. Pours a hazy brown with a white head. Nose is big nuts- pecans, mild peanut, and some woody notes, I get some sweet malt and some oaky barrel notes, but almost no bourbon. Flavor is similar--big and nutty, not really barrel or booze, but a sweet pecan flavor throughout, much more so than any other Abita beer. The best Abita beer I have tried to date, make no mistake.

Poured into a snifter.
3.0 A: Nearly clear deep amber mahogany color. One finger of frothy/fizzy beige head. Retention is poor and a short ring of lacing is left.
4.5 S: This smells delicious. It has all kinds of things I love. Pecans with added nuttiness from the base beer. Maple syrup is quite potent. Bourbon is on the fruitier side - melon, apple, honeydew, but also has earthy leather, raisin, vanilla, and oak. Toasty malts underneath.
3.0 T: The taste just doesn’t live up to the nose. The aromas so powerful in the nose just muddle together. I suppose the bourbon is the strongest component of the taste. Leather, apple, and raisin. The pecans are subtle, as is the maple syrup. Toasty malts underneath. It’s not bad, but it’s disappointing given what I was expecting. Somewhat dry, could use a stronger, sweeter malt base.
3.0 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. This needs a lot more body.
3.0 D: The concept is balling. The execution isn’t.
