COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abita Bock is brewed with Perle hops and British pale and caramel malts. Our Bock is similar to a German Maibock in its high malt content, full body and slightly higher alcohol content. Available January-March.

Pours a golden amber with a large white head, mostly lasting. Aroma is malty. Nice and creamy on the palate. Malt profile is forward on first tasting with a hint of caramel. Lightly hopped with no bitterness. A decent bock but not top tier. Pairs well with burgers and brats off the grill.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Feel kinda strange having this during Lent. Labeled "Mardi Gras Bock" Aroma: Definitely bready, like it’s German counterparts, but not purely so; a little more grain and pronounced caramel adulterates things a bit. There’s something here that reminds me of peanut butter. Sweet, no doubt, but with a spicy hop presence that isn’t negligible. Appearance: Poured a well carbonated copper with a foamy khaki head that settles into a sticky film. Flavor: Bready up front, and more bready overall than the nose suggests (and a little less sweet); spicy hops do emerge about halfway through; hops pull through to the finish, which is semi-dry. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A bit of a poor man’s take on the style (well, kinda like Bavaria meets Gumbo country), but it comes together respectably. Wouldn’t turn it down if offered again.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear orange pour with white foam. Slight caramel malt nose with a vegetal undertone. Slightly sweet and malty at the start that moves to a dry grass finish. Clean finish without much punch.

Erzengel (1907) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2014
Rated as "Mardi Gras Bock".
Great copper in the glass, malty nose. The beer starts smooth, malty with hints of red fruit. The mainpart is malty, easy to drink, slightly dry but still fruity. The aftertaste is medium, malty-dry with hints of bitterness.
A "normal" Bock. Nothing really special…. --> 10/11/9/10

dogfish120love (880) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Pours copper in dark lighting with a thick white head. Diacytel, cereal aroma with a slippery palate. A poor beer all around

NikkTwist (1387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Draft at Khyber Pass. Mostly a standard Heller Black. Maybe a bit cleaner and fuller than most. Honey bread. Shimmering toasted wheat notes. Ok.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent lighter orangish gold with thin white lacing. Smells of lager yeast and malt with mild notes of caramel. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad, but forgettable.
