UPDATED: SEP 7, 2005 A clean tasting, dark brown ale with a richer aroma and smoother yet fizzier taste than most. Mild but nice roasted chocolate hints, caramel finish with light hopping. One of Abita’s better ones.DarkElf (3066) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 14, 2004

(12 oz bottle) More robust than a brown ale, but milder than an American porter, this watery, dark beer is sugary sweet, lightly toasty, and minimally bitter; The nose is sweet and sugary, with a mild chocolate candy aroma, and an odd toastiness that just doesn't smell good; Dark brown in color and somewhat translucent; Light tan head starts big and gradually settles to a thin layer, but leaves considerable lacing on the glass tony2times (23) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2004
Dark brown color with a lighter head. Tasted primarily of chocolate and toffee but fades fast. The beer had a thin, almost watery feel to it. It was good to taste, but not something I could drink a lot of. clong83 (285) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 6, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2004 Fantastic beer. Blackish color, nice tan head, and a full palate of coffee and chocolate flavors. FunkDaMan (38) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 31, 2004
nice little beer, good color and palate. A bit thin, but enjoyable when I want something a little less heavy than a stout.

wow i really love this brew. it pours a really dark brown with a light and airy tan head. Has a super roasted coffee with good hints of choclate in the after taste. This is one brew that i will be enjoying again real soon. gsteph (325) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Deep, dark brown with nice fluffy beige head with excellent retention and some sticky lace. Malty aroma with a little coffee and faint chocolate. Roasted coffee flavor with sweet milk chocolate and well balanced hops. More closely resembles a sweet stout in flavor. A little thin but great palate. Something to keep around the house. crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Nice dark coffe like color. Smell some chocolate and coffee. Flavor is chocolate and malts with a slight hop. Not bad. Kind of a stouty brown ale. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 17, 2004
there seemed to be bottles of this at every second pub i visited in the states so i finaly grabbed one. weird licorice allsorts aroms. nice shade of purple, strangely simultaneously seemed caramelly, light-bodied and quite dry. decent, i thought it was a lagery schwarzbier impression but it appears not NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2005 Aroma is malty and sweet with very slight roast notes. Dark brown to black with a decent head. Aroma is smooth chocolate and roasted malts. Nothing outstanding, but always a good beer to quaff.
