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.

This rich coppery brown colored beer had a sweet fruity fig like aroma. It has a strong oaky flavor with notes if chocolate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOLTZ7555 (2799) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Clear mahogany pour with a razor thin chestnut head. Syrupy and sweet. Molasses, cocoa powder, dark fruit, and vanilla bean. Needs more carbonation to ignite the palate. Instead, this one was a tad cloying and marginal at best.

Gold pour with creamy off white head and lace. Large dried fruitiness (raisiny), brown sugar and some abv. Sweet raisiny, sweet malt, and a nice abv warmth. Medium bodied but fizzy.

SpringsLicker (3132) - Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2013
Clear dark brown body. Not much head at all. Sweet malt aroma, Slightly fruity. The flavor is very sweet, verging on cloying. The sweetness needs more malt and toasty notes to balance it out.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a clear, rust orange appearance with a creamy, brown head. Hazelnutty, caramel, toffee, somewhat fruity, banana bread aroma. Soft carbonation. Slightly weird herbal/organic/woody, apple/banana, burnt black bread, caramel, toasty flavor with a bit of chocolate and vanilla. The oak kind of adds a strange flavor to the beer. Not sure I like its addition.

Enjoyed on tap @ Honeypie in Milwaukee, WI prior to assembling records and playing a show. Appearance a dark cough syrup like ruby red with a thin white head. Aroma is malty, light plum, light bit of oak. Taste is good but has a cough syrup like mouthfeel which freaks me out a bit. Definite plum/dark fruit notes, malty, not too carbonated, I can tell its a high ABV brew. This stuff is just ok.

Bomber pours a clear dark reddish-brown with vanishing off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is full of toffee, bread, molasses, and brown sugar. with some oak and vanilla. There’s a lot going on here. Taste is sweet and malty all the way through. A bit of alcohol on the finish, as expected for 10.5%. Medium to full body without too much carbonation. This one got better as it warmed up, and is the only "triple bock" I’ve really enjoyed, despite a few bad cheap ones. Well worth a try.
