This big bodied, blonde, doppelbock is brewed in celebration of that festival of all festivals, Mardi Gras. Generous amounts of malts are added to this beer to give it a sweet taste.

Bottled 11/14/12, as ’Imperial Maibock’, appropriately named choice for a Superbowl Sunday pick this year, I guess. Some sunny pils malt and noble hops in the nose, with a hint of some alcohol. Hazy orange-golden body with a creamy off-white head. Taste is somewhat sweet, thinnish malt with light noble hops, bready-yeasty finish and a little sunshine before that, but there’s a bigger dedication to booze and white grape/honey, even if both are dulled. Little spicy, not bitter or astringent, medium-full body and a smidgen of depression.

This is just OK. Hits the style on looks, golden, clear, dense white head, but the nose is muted with slight wheat and the malty body is not all that well integrated. Better as it warmed slightly but a bit sweet, a little estery, and when cold faintly metallic. Drinkable but was hoping for better.

12 oz bottle bottled in Nov. or Dec. of 2012 -- very fresh. Pours a lightly hazy amber with a good sized but fragile off-white head. Rather sweet and slightly boozy, as expected for style. Well done but not one of my favorite styles.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 Tastes like pumpkin, tea, cinnamon, molasses. Low carbonation, few hops. Decent bock, though light.

Amber. Minimal head. Some spices. Faint sourness. Malty. Not alot to it really. Decent body.

Dark copper color, low amounts of carbonation, acidic and sweet aroma like an Oktoberfest. Medium bodied, yet a tad flat and wishy-washy in delivery...it sorta sits there without fizz nor creamy smoothness. Still it’s a pleasant beer and not bad in a 1-bottle dose. The taste is sweet and moderately floral. I may not buy it again, but I would definitely choose it over most lagers.

I love Maibocks but this is just ok. Malty and spivey. But too soft. Too light. Light to medium bodied. Not great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma didnt impress me. Weak so I figured it was watered down. It actually wasnt too bad. Malty rich taste, light but not watery.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Dark amber color with a very thin head. Aroma is mostly malty with a subtle hint of honey. Flavor is somewhat of a malty mess, very unbalanced. Not my favorite, thats for sure.

(Currently named Big Easy Imperial Maibock) Almost no aroma, I was able to pick up a bit of mild wheat. Pours a clear orangish, with a thin white head. Very much on the sweet side, with no hop bitterness that I can pick up. The sweetness lingers on the palate, just short of becoming cloying. Not that big of a fan of this beer, and would probably not be picking it up again.
