3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

22FL OZ ($4.99) pretty cool beer, masks that 8% very well. a pretty beasty beer for low cost. its not a huge character beer but a strong delivery with a hidden hit. not all beers of a breed need to be the same.

I had this one in New Orleans. It’s crisp, light and sweet. I thought it was very undermalted for for a Doppelbock.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Was hesitant on getting this since all other Abita brews was a major let down but it was a single bottle on sale. Dark gold, small and fast dying head, malty aroma with hints of alcohol. Taste was caramel, sweet, slight alcohol, little bit of hop bitterness, overall not too bad. Not the best brew but the best one I have had from Abita. Didn’t have that muddy water taste so many of their brews have or maybe the extra malts and hops helped to mask it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: Bready, yeasty, caramel, floral, slight apple and possibly citrus
A: Straw colored, little head that dissipates quickly, very little lacing
T: sweet and malty with a strong caramel presence. Some spice and cherry skins
P: Light body, light carbonation
O: Though it is a Helles Doppelbock the beer seems not to have the signature qualities of either style varieties and becomes sort of lost in its mix. The flavors are not too complex which make it too drinkable for an 8% A.B.V.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bit hazy golden color. Lots and lots of malt. Malty party. Aroma and taste. Also lots of sweetness. Finish is extremely long and again extremely sweet. Medium body, soft carbonation. Interesting stuff, not too great and not for everyone. //stellabeershop

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden with an average, short lived, off-white head that laces. Sweet malty aroma with fruit and grain. Sweet, bready malt flavour with caramel, grain and a hint of alcohol in a lightly bitter, dry finish. Medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Not bad, but nothing special.
