Bomber. Why do people want to clone this if gets such low ratings? Pours yellowish with 2 finger puffy tan head. Nose is uriney. Taste is sweet and slightly hoppy. This is all wrong stylewise, but all in all not horid.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2009 The aroma is sweet and fruity with yeast and malt. The appearance is copper/gold with a large head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is average for the style. Overall itís alright but thatís all.

On tap at beerfest in new Orleans. Pours a cloudy copper with a medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is a spicy fruit malt. Good sticky lacing on the glass. The taste is a dry malt with yeast and light spice. A decent doppelbock from abita.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 5, 2009
I canít believe the score on this. This is a great beer for itís style. Pours with a tall frothy head that lasts. Aromas have a freshness about it. Like a cool breeze in a candy store. Theres a slight haze to the golden/copperish color beast. Full nectar with mild carbonation. The flavor profile is fresh like the aromatics. A defined sweetness is not cloying. Itís a pretty nice beer folks despite the dreary ratings.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2009
22oz bottle, my first Abita 22. Way more of a Heller-Bock appearance than a Doppelbock, as the bottle (Helles Doppelbock) would indicate I suppose. Highly filtered golden orange color with little head but plenty of carbonation bubbles. Mild sweet bocky aroma. Pretty decent mouthfeel, not far from the real thing. Sweet with the unique bocky yeast/malt lagered taste. Some hop crispness which quickly fades into malty sweetness. Pretty good, certainly better than most Abita beers

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Bottle. Golden beer with a cream colored head. Sweet malt aroma with light spice. Sweet malt flavor with light orange citrus and light spice. Medium bodied. Easy drinking. Sweet malt lingers with light orange.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours golden, with a medium white head, some lacing, fairly quick dispersion. Aroma is toasted malts, cereal, bread. Flavor is similar. Faint caramel taste. This is not a doppelbock, and although it does have some helles characteristics, it is pretty awful.

alexanderj (3318) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Bottle. I am continually underwhelmed by Abita, but I figured if they took the time to put this in a bomber, it might not be half bad. When I saw the rating on here, I figured that it was going to be more of the same. Poured a clear, almost piss color gold. Not bad looking, especially if you like that. Aroma was heavy on sweet malt and yeast, with something that made it not very appealing. A bit sweeter than I expected, even when you take the aroma into account. Alot of cornbread like qualities as well. Some earthy, grass like hops in the finish. Flavor wasnít quite as bad as the aroma, but it still just was not too great. Why do I still buy their beers? And why are they so widely distrubed?

The first thing I noticed about this beer is that it shone like a jewel. It is crystal clear; no doubt due to being finely filtered. It has a flower nose and youíre ready for the taste of sweetness but it barely comes. This is the right time of year for high alcohol beers and Andygator does not disappoint. The taste is on the lightish side with a nice hoppish finish.
