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.

Trying this out as a dessert beer after a hearty dinner of steak tacos, and it actually works as a one-and-done boozy brew. Cleverly named with the -ator suffix, this claims to be a Helles-doppelbock, and I see what they're getting at, although it's not exactly well executed. Starts off with a classic clean lager aroma with a little extra sugary sweetness, could be mistaken as an adjunct lager up front. Not much foam but a good bit of fresh lacing, interesting light Helles color. Flavor starts out as clean grain with faintly noble hoppiness, but then transitions to a yeasty and sugary boozy heavy bock flavor without the caramel. Aftertaste of booze, but not too harsh. An interesting combination of styles, although a bit schizophrenic in the flavor profile. Worth a try!

Ein deutscher Bock in Alligator-Haut, ich bin gespannt. Optisch schönes Bernstein. In der Nase Keks, Trauben. Im Trunk Feuerzangenbowle, ehrlich, süß, Weißwein, leicht alkoholisch, bisschen Karamell. Ganz okay, dürfte aber deutlich aromatischer sein.

Sugary bock malt body with a fizzy finish with a bit of honey. A pretty simple doppelbock.

Bottle at Royal House in New Orleans. Malt dominates the aroma with some yeast underneath.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2017 Poured from bottle into a pint glass. Clear golden/amber. Finger or so of head at pour, which quickly dissipates. Smells like beer. Haha. First beer I've had of this style, so I had no idea what to expect. Tastes malty and the higher alcohol content is noticeable, albeit only slightly. Solid beer. Might come back for a re-review in the future once I'm more familiar with this type of beer. Cheers.

Pours clear gold with a minor white head. Aroma is malt. Taste is... not the greatest. Sweet doppel malt. No depth. A little backend bitter. Slight funk. Middling. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle pours a clear golden/amber with small off-white head and hardly any lacing. Aroma is not strong, but mostly grainy and bready malts, with a touch of molasses. Taste is sweet and occasionally sickeningly sweet. Body is medium with slight carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. The name and the label are the best part of this beer. I found it in a New Orleans restaurant and won’t look for it again.

pours a clear rich gold with a medium creamy white head. Light malt aroma. Kind of a different, sweetish taste. A little bitter comes in on the finish and linger. Different, not a bock, but not bad.

12 fl.oz. bottle from BierPost. A clear golden beer with a huge good lasting off-white head. Strong pale malty aroma, hints of grainy malt, sweet malt. Taste of strong malt, pale malt, mild sweetness, sharp grainy, a bit dry.
