Abita Mardi Gras Bock

The Abita Brewing Company is in Abita Springs, Louisiana.  If I recall correctly, their brewery was damaged during Hurricane Katrina.

This 6.5% ABV beer pours copper in color, with orange and amber.  There is a half-inch of foamy and creamy head that is off-white in color.  The aroma is malty, caramel, with some fruit and herbal spice from the hops.  This smells like a good Oktoberfest beer would.  The taste is richly and satisfyingly malty, just a touch of sweet potato, and the exact right amount of hops so that it finishes lightly bitter and not overly sweet.  This is really nice.
