Pours dark ruby with virtually no head. Smells surprisingly fruity with hints of malt. Taste is incredibly sweet. Full-bodied with a slick texture and no mouth-carbonation, Alaskan Pilot Series: Troppelbock finishes excessively sweet, fruity, a little boozy, and dry.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick amber-brown, dark crystal malt colored,with a nice toasted caramel cream lather on top. Wonderful nose, quite subdued for oak so perhaps it is French oak vs American Oak. The oak is there, but does not hit you over the head. Lovely nuances of vanilla and sasparilla and malt. The body likewise is of complex, refined oakyness that exudes vanilla, sassafrass, and some mint amidst a sturdy amber malt backbone. Body is viscous and mellifluous. While this hardly falls into the doppelbock category stylistically, this is a fabulous specialty brew in its own right.
