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.

Copper/mahogany pour with an off-white head. Nose is sweet caramel, oak, vanilla, and cola. Some dark fruit, chocolate, and molasses. Sweet flavors of molasses, dark fruit, caramel, and vanilla. A heavy oak note, chocolate, cola, and light roast. Maybe a touch of nuts.

marcus (6365) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours dark copper with a disappearing beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a very oaky slightly sweet toffee flavor with sort of a hoppy finish. Pretty tasty.

Beerenberger (1384) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Aroma of caramel, toast, with meaty notes. Pours a dark amber with no head or lacing. The taste is sweet. Caramel, dark pitted fruit, raisins, figs, with hints of toasted malts. A slight bitter finish is present. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, sweeter than I expected. While enjoyable, I wouldn’t want to drink more than one at a time.

swesson (187) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2013
This is what a triple should be! It bit on the sour side, which is nice. Good lacing. The head is a bit weak. Beautiful dark amber color. Hint of caramel. A bit of a woodsy, mossy aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scooterbub (815) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JUN 5, 2013
651ml bottle. Pours a red amber with a half inch beige head that lasts. Taste is of oak, cocoa, vanilla, brown sugar, caramel, fruit and malt. Rather clean, oak aroma. Has a nice full body with a warming, clean finish. Very easy to drink and enjoyable. Reminds me of a good liquor. Good, but something that needs to be split with others or sipped on.

Dogbrick (7682) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Sample at the Memorial Day Deck Beers tasting on 05/27/2013: Pours a clear dark mahogany color with a medium thick off-white head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, oak and plum. Full, syrupy body with flavors of earthy malt, figs and oak. The finish is rich and malty with a dark fruit aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

k9coug (101) - USA - MAY 30, 2013
Pours a crystal clear rubied medium amber with a scant, loose light tan head. Intermittent stringy lace. Big sweet nose, lots of plums, maybe too many. Sickly sweet caramel in high concentrations as well. Sticky thick body but very smooth, almost slick. Lots of nucleation columns in the glass but relatively few bubbles on the tongue. Intensely sugary sweet, lots of residuals, gooey coating plums and caramel on the mid palate. Relatively moderate finish, a little sweet but not too lingering.
