This is a big bad boy from the bayou. Abita has produced some lack luster brews in the past, but this one is really good. As far as bocks go this follows all the rules. Nice carbonation, good yeast back, clean finish. Strong ABV but well hidden. Had mine in a 22 oz bottle, uhm take two and call me in the morning. Had mine with a couple nice roasted chicken breast the wife had waiting on me when I got home from work.

Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some biscuit, a touch of sweetness. Taste is no so mild, biscuits, alcohol, malts, some sweetness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid and enjoyable beer.
