inviting nose, some chocolate. very dark amber color with dissipating head. sweat taste up front with a slightly bitter finish. very easy to drink but also not very complex. EnderKiller (26) - Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2004
Had this on draft in New Orleans while on Spring Break. Full head and thick bodied with vanilla-chocolate smell. Darn this is good! Syrupy sweet with a slight bitter sting that mixes well with the malt and fresh water taste. a bit nutty as well. Great chilled in a bottle, too.

Found this beer at Gomer’s Kanasas. Very nice chocolately, hoppy, malty Brown Ale. Very rich and full bodied. Smooth and Drinkable. Abita Beer’s impresses me very much with this fine beer. Metalhead (644) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2004
WTF is this?It looked and great and smelled ok,but it taste like a watered down stout with no character. BLAH! spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2004
Didn’t think was good at all. Nothing really like a brown ale. Very dark appearance with a medium dark head. Skunked aroma. Taste was sorta sweet, didn’t really have any roasted flavor. Not good.

Aroma of alcohol and dark maltiness. Brown head, nice, dark color. Medium body. Taste is dark, some plum. Fades away to a bitter zing. Ok. r464 (2360) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2004
Wow! I am not a huge fan of brown ales, but this one was very good. Deep brown in color, sweet and tempered with chocolate and coffee, though not as strong as a good stout. jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Bottle. Pours brown with off-white head. Malt and caramel to the nose. Coffee and caramel flavor with a little raisin. Finishes clean. Overall very good. CapFlu (5127) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2004
(Draught) Sampled at the Empire State Brewing Festival 2004. Medium, cloudy beige head with a deep mahogany colour. Nose of roasted malt, cocoa with mild coffee undertones. Flavour is full-on coffee and malt. Above average. TChrome (1472) - North Richland Hills, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2004
Ruby red in color with a big, fluffy beige colored head. I really like the aroma of this brown ale. Aromas of roasted peanuts and a hint of chocolate encourage the user to quaff. Flavor is quite pleasent and seems to me to be a bit stoutish. Flavors include coffee, dark chocolate and some hoppiness. This exceeded my expectations significantly.
