Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 03-17-2002

Bock (January – March) is the first of our seasonal brews. It is brewed with Perle hops and pale and caramel malts. Our Bock is similar to a German Maibock in its high malt content, full body and slightly higher alcohol content. Abita Bock is a very popular brew, especially during our Mardi Gras season.

Aroma of malts, grains, slight vegetal note, faint caramel. Taste slight sweet malt, grains, grassy, hoppy bitter finish.

Pours a clear amber producing 2+ fingers of beige, foamy, moderately lasting head that leaves streaks & splotches of lace. Aroma is malty toast & toffee with a hint of crackers, nuts & herbal hops. Taste is deeply malty: toast, toffee, cracker, roasted nuts & pepper finishing with pepper & hints of honey, molasses, herbal hops & a roasty bitterness that dominates the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied with moderate carbonation, a little syrupy on the tongue & quite smooth despite a light prickle throughout most of the sip.

Very surprised on how well this beer tasted. Complex flavors make it feel and taste almost like a pilsner but has a more full body. Very good smell too.

An easy drinking beer - it has a slight hint of hops on the nose and in the taste. Bread and malt dominate the taste. One of those rare smooth, tasty, easy to drink beers. Not very complex or hoppy though.
