The Abita Brewing Company is in Abita Springs, Louisiana. This 5.6% ABV beer is a dark brown ale brewed with pale, caramel and chocolate malts, and Willamette hops. The beer pours a very dark brown, nearly black, with ruby tints. There is a short, creamy head that is off-white in color. The aroma is dark roasted malt, nutty, caramel, sweet, yet tangy. The taste follows the aromas, with enough hop bitterness to prevent any over-sweetness and to finish dry. A very nice and sessionable brown ale.
