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.

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.

rougeau13 (2307) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2013
Dark clear brown with a fairly resilient tan head. Aroma of caramel, wood and toast. Taste is mostly sweet caramel and booze with a little dry woodiness. A little dry, oily, and medium-full bodied. Decent.

Red-tinted clear amber, looks like brandy in the glass with an off-white head. Gingerbread spice nose with some alcohol. Flavor is dark.grassy malt followed by a dry finish. Very nice and agreeable for a beer perceived to be thick and malty sweet... its not. I like these good doppelbocks.

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Amber pour with a tan head. I get a lot of toffee notes and a hint of dark fruit, as well as a good bit of oak and some light vanilla character. There is also a touch of chocolate malt in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice beer.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark red brown color. It’s transparent and appears filtered though I could be wrong. The aroma is surprisingly mild for such a big beer. Some fruit and vanilla. The taste has some chocolate and taste of grains almost like cereal. It has a fruity aspect almost like berries. This is highly drinkable and the alcohol is not very noticeable. This would be easy to drink in the cold. An OK beer and I’m not sure what the brewer was trying to achieve.

This one jsut didn’t work. I think the base doppelbock is a bit weak. It is sugary and boozy.

drjay44 (3164) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2013
651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, over a very slightly hazy amber (SRM 13) body.....nose is rich malts, with toffee/caramel, plum, raisin, brown sugar vanilla.....taste is sweet with toffee/caramel, vanilla, plum, raisin, finishing with a light bitterness and slight wood bite....mouth feel medium, sticky, slightly astringent, alcohol warmth present, with slight fusel bite, carbonation low. This is quite obviously a Dopplebock. It does not have the depth of fruit aromas and flavors found in the best in this style and is slightly harsh from the oak. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

Pours dark reddish amber with thin white head. Aroma of sweet malt caramel and light oak. Taste of great german malt with dark stone fruit and carmel. Very nice doppelbock that was smooth going down and hid the 10.5% nicely.
