There is this Arab gas station in town that sells quality beers for well under the retail price (I’m pretty sure something illegal is involved, but I can’t prove it and I don’t want to know). I went there today to get a pint of this Chocolate Stout that has a relatively high alcohol content (but won’t get one drunk) and a rich taste. They were out of that. There was the Abita Andy Gator, which is an okay brew, but I wanted something more.
I saw they had an Abita Abbey Ale. While I was initially wary, it did promise a “liquid bread” experience, and I love thick beers. That’s what I left with.
Opening: Strong, bold opening taste. Very fresh and clean. It promises a caramel taste but I didn’t notice it.
Finish: Have you ever tasted an overipe fruit or strong tart taste? That’s what it reminds me of, yet it wasn’t unpleasant.
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars. Will purchase again if there isn’t the chocolate stout available. Not the best beer I’ve ever had (still partial to Nevada Stout) but superior to the Samuel Adams’ varieties.
