Mardi Gras Bock

The Beer Stats:
  • Beer Name: Mardi Gras Bock
  • Brewery: Abita Brewing Company (Louisiana)
  • Style: MaiBock 
  • ABV: 6.5%
  • IBU: 25
  • Pour Color: A copper golden color

      You get both the yeast and the malts in the scent off the top. The head hung out rather low for a good portion of the glass. Slight traces of lacing on the sides. The color was a copperish golden color. It could easily be seen thru. The malt and yeast though tell this beers story. You got a nice mix of sweet malt and bread tones. The hops just helps add a little contrast that doesn't over take the beer. The yeast and the malts also echo long after the sip! Not really ballenced but actually very easy for a mustache to swim in frequently.
      Abita makes some good products. Another seasonal from them and another I would have again and again. Malty and hearty while not being to think to drink a whole night. Although the 6.5% ABV may be a little high to have all night. It's just a beer that any whiskers should be pleased with!

Rating: ****1/2
