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.

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.

Mora2000 (5780) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2013
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.

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

TwinBeer (58) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 8, 2013
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.

Ratman197 (9948) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bomber poured a clkear reddish amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of carmel, toffee, brown sugar, oak, banana, vanilla and light spice. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth. Flavors of oak, toffee, brown sugar, vanilla and light fruittiness with a smooth lingering oak finish.

hayduke (3385) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 6, 2013
This pouerd dark red with a beige head and thick lacing. The nose was ripe fruit and alcohol, with the hint of the oak. Medium plus in body and with a mouthfeel with alcoholic burn. Flavor is rich sweet malts with some pepper spice, pus vanilla, and again the alcohol is clearly present. The oak in in the sweet finish. This is a rich brew, and would be better if the alcohol was not so present so as to interfere with the flavors.
