Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2008
On tap at Big Pour Mesa. Pours a hazy gold with minimal white head. Nose is sweet malts and light earthy hops. Taste is pretty much the same with some citrus in the finish. Lighter mouth feel. Best offering I’ve had from Abita to-date.

On tap @ 1702 - Pours a light golden color with a very slight hazy and a small white head. Light lacing. Aroma and flavor is esters and light grain. Medium body with a fairly smooth finish. Alcohol wasn’t overbearing. A nice beer.

JustinFromAL (123) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Draft. Pours a golden color with a soft white head. Minimal lacing. Tasted like some kind of Belgian/golden hybrid. This beer would make a good session beer.

DragonsHead (140) - Erie, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2008
The site was down so long, I’ll have to do this from a rough memory... I didn’t know what to expect from this beer. Had on draft at Beerfest on Bourbon St. New Orleans. Decent head, not too heavy. Has a bit of an abbey aroma, spiced and fruity. Drinks a bit like a barleywine, so I can’t put this in a category. Overall, I really enjoyed it. I haven’t had too much great stuff from abita, but this trip changed my perception.

On tap at Beerfest in NoLa. Nose is bananas, with notes of clove and sugar in there. Flavor was sweet and fruity. Pours amber brown with white head.

GodOfThunder (1244) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Draft at the brew pub. There just isnt much sense in making a high gravity brew if you cant make it taste good. I thought this was awful. Slightly bitter, strong Euro hops. Very strong flavor, but not balanced and just not very good.

ClarkVV (3863) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Draught at Sunset Grill, early 2008. Wasnt sure what this was at the time of drinking it, but thought it was some Belgian Strong Golden, though I suppose a heller doppel bock is reasonable. It says fermented to a dry finish, and while I wont call it overly dry, by any means, its not obnoxiously sweet and the alcohol isnt overbearing. Warming allowed for some DMS like flavors and the hops never really made an appearance, but for some floral, lightly dusty notes upon opening. Not offensive, though Im rating it more of a Belgian ale than a doppel bock, which it dosent really resemble in the least bit.

puzzl (3240) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Tap at Barcade.Very sweet, corny malt liquor-like aroma. Similar flavor, harsh, sweet, and gross. Near undrinkable.

BOLTZ7555 (2710) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 7, 2008
On tap at Big Pour Mesa, AZ. 14 karat hazy pour with a whispy white head. Fruity, grassy, hoppy. Have no idea how this can be categorized as a Doppelbock. I enjoyed this beer but the best thing about the brew is its name.
