Abita Andygator®, a creature of the swamp, is a unique, high-gravity brew made with pale malt, German lager yeast, and German Perle hops. Unlike other high-gravity brews, Andygator® is fermented to a dry finish with a slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma. Reaching an alcohol strength of 8% by volume, it is a Helles Doppelbock.

eaglefan538 (2983) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Poured a pale to clear golden color, weak initial white head, no lacing the entire way down. The aroma was off smelling grass, dirt, sweet candy elements, and did I say something off, almost like an unbathed dog. The flavor sorta followed in a rather disappointing and unimaginable way. Sweet candy foul grass at the fore, semi-metallic aspects, just a mess. Mouthfeel was light and thin, yet it had some sticky sweet elements too. Felt like I was on a plane to Germany that crashed into the Atlantic along the way. Actually, that would have been worse.

Sharing the same name (not gator) and looking for something new to sample, I picked up a bomber. Pours a pale gold/amber with a substantial white head that laces the glass. Sweet corn aroma with some hoppy flower notes. Slightly off sweet malt, corn, hard candy and hop bitterness flavor. Pleasant, but not overly well balanced. Some inferior alcohol notes, but not bad by any means. This was not bad, but definitely not great. I am still learning all the subtle differences, but this does not seem like any doppelbock that I have had.

Pretty harsh corn nose. Floral in the mouth and medicinal. Pretty poor offering.

Skyview (5411) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Sampled via 22-oz bomber during Dark Lord Day 09 at Table 3. Pours a clear golden blonde colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of golden grain malt, a hint of corn grits, Kelloggs frosted flakes, a hint of caramel and some light fruit. Taste is light to medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, corn grits, light flowery hops and a touch of caramel. Finish has a light fruity aftertaste with no bitterness and a touch of white pepper. Light for a doppelbock.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Uhh, not my bag baby. Poured clear gold with a frothy white head. Nice lacing. Sweet, perfume aroma laden with spun sugar, lemon, and malt. Sparkling mouthfeel, kept the feel light. Taste started off good, but got sickening towards the end of the glass. Lots of corn and crystal malt int he beginning, very nice. Light fruitiness, light sweetness that kept in check. Somehow, it seemed to build up in your mouth, though. Soon, the taste turned into a grape-candy and straw disaster. Its was like the Sam Adams Longshot Grape beer on steroids. The finish was long and sticky, and very unpleasant. If it remained constant in the beginning, I would have really liked this beer. But as it is, no way.

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of light yeast, corn, grains, slight fruit, slight herbs, and slight spices. Poured golden/apple juice in color with a large, fluffy, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Not sparkling. Small lacing. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of yeast, spices, slight alcohol, pale malts, and corn. Medium body. Slightly syrupy, slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, corn, pale malt, and yeast finish. Another disappointment from Abita.

Sampled on 5/7/2009. This dopplebock pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal, malt, slightly fruity. A medium bodied dopplebock. The malts are fruity and sweet, with a touch of caramel. The hops are earthy. A little sweet tasting and it gets sweeter as it warms. Decent carbonation. It needs more of a malt backbone. There was a very weird and somewhat unpleasant aftertaste in this beer that went away after the first couple of sips. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2009
interest color for a proclaimed doppelbock, more a golden straw orange color. On tap at New Orleans the aroma was a cloying bitter somewhat peppery sense with an overall sweet taste.

Ratman197 (12166) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Bomber poured a clear gold with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of bread dough, light straw and light fruittiness. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, graininess apple and a hint of spice with a smooth lingering bittersweet finish.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2009
A nice find at Simone’s In Lakewood. 22oz. The pour is a boring murky orange with a thick white head. The aroma a musky malt with some fruity citrus. The flavor is a slightly funky bock flavor. This is a little sweeter than I would prefer. It could be a bit heartier.
