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.

Long finish, kind of sticky. Overall: Good golly miss molly I did not expect that. What a fantastic, fantastic beer.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle... Poured deep ruby/red with a thin head. Nose had worty malt. Quite malty and worty. So much sweetness on this and no bitterness or hop presence to balance it. Warming alcohol which added even more sweetness. Didn’t necessarily taste bad, just really hard to get through a whole pour.

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 (9007) - 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 (1601) - 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 (364) - 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 (1014) - 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.
