Bottle as part of party pack. Color was black with a medium tan head. Aroma was combo of hops and bitter chocolate. Flavor was the same with a black and tan type finish. djd07 (14354) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2007

Dark brown beer with decent mocha head. Caramel aroma. Malty flavor, minimal hops. A trifle watery, but not bad. Lubiere (13770) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2010
A brown ale with a thin moka head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with plums. In mouth, a boring chalky ale with light brunes, rather pedestrian. On tap at VT Brewers Fest, July 17 2010.

12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, Va. Pours a reddish black with a large head. Decent retention and lacing. Aroma is light roast, caramel and nutty notes, as well as some faint dark fruits. Taste is grassy hops, dark fruits, roasted malts, nuts, sunflower, caramel. Medium bodied. Pleasant brew.

Brown with a small tan head. Fruity and hoppy aroma that includes some pine and smoke notes. Bitter and a little sour to the taste. A little sweet but almost like a tart, dark chocolate. Creamy on the palate. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2003
(Bottle) Dark brown in color with a medium creamy head. Descent taste with hints of coffee, chocolate, and toffee. Dogbrick (12906) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2003
This was an interesting beer that pretty much defied description to me. At different points in my glass I would have guessed it was a Brown Ale, a Dunkel, or an Altbier. Points for being different. Pours a dark brown but clear, with a medium thick light beige head. Quick lacing. Aroma of malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied with flavors of coffee, nuts and malt, with a sweet malty aftertaste. A good session beer, and the best from Abita I have tried. crossovert (12613) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2011
It is a sweet, dark colored English brown ale that just doesn’t do much for me.
