COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Doppelbock Ale Aged On Oak Chips
Alaskan Troppelbock is a tawny, copper-colored ale with thick, ivory lacing. Toasty, biscuit, and caramel malt notes dominate the aroma but do not overwhelm the delicate undertones of freshly hewn oak and pecan pie-like nuttiness. The flavor is similarly complex; a huge, toasted malt profile melds with subtle fig, dark fruit, milk chocolate, and vanilla notes. The mouthfeel is warming, soft, and full, with moderately low carbonation and a slightly dry finish.

Bottle from Total Wine Glendale. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. Massive oak on the nose. Lots of malty sweetness on the tongue. You can tell this is a 10.5 percenter. Solid but not amazing.

Reddish brown amber with small minimally lasting off-white head. Malty, caramel, vanilla, toffee, molasses, a little fruity, some alcohol - fairly sweet with some nice complexity. Medium to full body. Syrupy and sweet. Alcohol is very present but doesnt get in the way. Manages to stay pretty smooth Finish is balanced malty sweet, toasty, light woody and vanilla touches. I kept it off to the side for about half a year, maybe more which I think was to its benefit,.

22oz bottle pours a brown color without any head. Overly sweet and a little alcohol harshness.

All around great beverage. Pours a bronze colour with tan head. Gorgeous. Aromas are caramel and corn syrup, Vanilla and bubblegum. Very inviting. Sweet vanilla and syrupy flavours with some nutty bitterness to balance of all the sweetness. Exceptional.

First foray into this style. I'm not certain that the brewers succeeded in their mission. Syrupy sweet, with quite strong toffee notes. Some woodiness from the aging, but not enough to match the sweetness. B- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Caramel abounds in the nose and palate. Thick mouth feel, slightly sweet, delicious. Must pick up more.

beerbill (3538) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2013
22 oz. bottle that I picked up in Jackson Hole, WY during my recent vsisit and shared with my wife. Pours a deep but clear reddish amber with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first two sips and left little lace. Very pleasant aroma of sweet malt, oak, vanilla, and biscuit. The flavor is equally enjoyable with sweet malt, oak, vanilla, biscuit, and a bit of overripe orange. Not a heavy beer, but more than medium bodied. Not at all cloying despite its sweetness. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Very solid.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Burgundy, thin to moderate frothy tannish head, little lacing.   Sweet bready and biscuity nose.   Very sweet, bready, and biscuity on the tongue.   On the verge of being cloying.   Very sweet.   Whats odd is that this one is very sweet, bready, biscuity, but its not heavy whatsoever.   Hard to believe its 10.5% too.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Huge maltiness on the finish, nutty, bready, biscuity.   Luckily I shared this 22oz, otherwise it may be a little too difficult.   Still surprised its as big in ABV as it is.   Respectable.

Aromatics are mild at best, lots of raisin’s and the like. Appearance is deep ruby, and light on head. Taste is heavy with oak, plum, and rasin’s. Palate is overly carbonated. Overall, its not bad. I wish it was more rounded.

This initially is quite malty, but after the shock change from the IPA I had before it it’s quite good. The flavor is sweet but not overly so, with a good chewy body and nice toffee notes. Actually quite excellent. The alcohol is very well hidden. Fantastic even on a 100+ degree day in Vegas.
