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.

Taster at the <a href=/events-detail.asp?eventID=3891>Balmoral Brewhaha. Got to this pretty late in the evening, while I was pouring. So my notes are a bit sketchy. Couldn’t gather too much of the smell, only that it was a fine "beer" character. Taste turned out to be rather yeasty, surprising for a beer that I would presume to have been pasteurized and carbonated… or is it? Still, some fine dark roasty malts and a contrasting German hop profile make this a solid example of the style.

Tmoney99 (11578) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2006

Strykzone (5337) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2006
This bock pours a medium brown color with almost no foam. Nor is there any carbonation visible. The aroma is not very pleasant. It has hints of a stagnant fish pond. Flavor is much better than the aroma. There is a nice mix of malt and hop as well as sweet and bitter. It also offers a nice tartness. Despite the aroma I liked this beer.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2006
Beer pours a clear medium orange-gold color with a small, off-white, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma isn’t very nice: malty with moderate notes of husky toasted grain, light notes of caramel; yeasty with a trace of dough; moderate-to-heavy miscellaneous notes of cooked corn/DMS, diacetyl, higher alcohols (smells like a bad mead) and a trace note of honey. The flavor is lightly sweet, moderately bitter with a long, unclean, warm, lightly bittersweet finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2006
Bottle. Head is initially small, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain, husks), with notes of DMS and chemicals. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Extremely poor. Blindly I would call this an American Dark, not a bock. It’s just swill lager with some color in its cheeks. Undrinkable.

Ratman197 (10672) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2006
Bottle poured a clear amber with a small dissapating off white head. Aromas of toasted malt, peaches and apples. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of sweet malt, apple, and a hint of peach with a sweet semi dry finish.
