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.

(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

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.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2004 Fantastic beer. Blackish color, nice tan head, and a full palate of coffee and chocolate flavors.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
