Brewsday Tuesday: Abita Mardi Gras Bock
Name: Abita Mardi Gras Bock
Brewed by: Abita Brewing Company
Style/ABV: Bock / 6.5%
Appearance: Pours a rich amber color with a two finger cream head that slowly disappears.
Smell: Malts and caramel tones. Very enticing.
Taste: Sweet malts, caramels with some light hops duing the finish. The caramel is the real star and makes me wish I had more on hand.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I was looking for an American bock to redeem the style and this one came through. It is full of malty goodness and is a very easy drinking beer. I need to pick up some more before Abita ceases production for the year.
Final Grade: B+
