Aroma is caramel, hay and grassy hops. Taste is biscuit, caramel, grassy hops, spices and a little roasted. It is mild but becomes more complex as you drink it. Palate is slightly thick. Not too bad, just lacking strength of flavor, but bottle is 3 days past best by date.

Haven’t tried anything from Abita after the past bad examples. Would have passed this one by if it wasn’t for finding it at a decent price in the singles section. OK one bottle won’t kill me I guess. Poured up a clear amber with no head. Smells of caramel and rust. Was expecting the signature dirt back taste that previous Abita brews had but luckily and surprisingly this one did not have that. It is actually not too bad to drink. Not sure if the brewery got a new filter to clean up that swamp water or what but this one is actually good.

shrubber85 (8323) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle. Lactic caramel malt and alcohol aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet caramel malt and moderately bitter/astringent herbal alcohol flavor. At least it tries to be a bock (unlike Shiner Bock).

12 ounce single bottle from the local Harris Teeter, as part of a create your own six-pack. Pours a nice copper color with a thin head. Light aroma of caramel and some malt. Taste is sweet with caramel and malt with a clean finish. Very drinkable.

TBone (13359) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle at Stop&Go, San Juan. As Mardi Gras Bock. Amber color, small off-white head, some lace. Caramel, bready notes, some spicey hops in the nose. Light to medium-bodied, even a bit watery for this ABV. Caramel, bread, light spicey hoppyness. Quite close to German dunkler bocks.

kdm1984 (762) - Missouri, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Fruit and straw aroma with hint of something almost bubblegummy or spicy. Flavor: booze, malt, some caramel, and slight fruit. Mouthfeel has a nice light coating that helps blend what are otherwise not especially impressive flavors. Kind of an odd beer that I would never be able to categorize on my own, but it has its moments. Drinkable.
