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.

Bomber. Poured clear, fiery reddish-orange with a short cap of smoky beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted fruits, molasses, and bready notes with leafy and black peppery accents.. warm and sugary, but I kind of dug it. The flavor found syrupy caramel and molasses, with toasty, tangy oak and darker fruits around.. finished sweet and warm, with nice yeast and oaky complements. Medium-plus bodied and fairly thick across the middle.. smooth, consistent carbonation.. a couple too many residual sugars in the end, but overall a very good beer.

Nice clear pour with a fast dissipating head. Crisp sweet German malts are abound in this sweet malty brew. Nose of the wood and caramel. Finish is sweet and a light bit of oAk. Went down way too fast and I don’t even like bocks.

mbgrayson (560) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pours a dark amber, with ample tan head. Aroma of sweet malts. Taste is sweet and malty, with notes of wood. You can taste the 10.5% alcohol in there too! Thumbs up.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 21, 2013
22oz bottle. Clear amber with a thick, dense, khaki head. Aroma of toffee, wood, fruity esters and vanilla. Flavor is sweet caramel/toffee malt, fruity ale yeast esters, vanilla oak and a slight alcohol warming. Medium to full body with a sticky, syrupy mouth feel. In the style of a Doppelbock this thing is horrible, call it an American strong ale and it’s decent. Way too much ale yeast character and sweetness to be a Doppelbock.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2013
22oz bomber split with Anndiesel. Filtered stained-glass ruby red. Thin beige head. Sweet, fruit tinged aroma. Quite an interesting beer. Mellows as it approaches room temp. Has a touch of a malt extract/ added sugar feel, though, which makes a lot of sense for a 10.5% Doppelbock. Pretty drinkable clean feel with the filtering. A respectable enough offering, a nice oaky, sweet taste over a big fruity malt undertone.

Bottle. Copper beer with a cream head. Smoke and light sweet malt aroma with a little vanilla. Nice smoke flavor with caramel and vanilla. Medium bodied. Caramel and vanilla linger with smoke and light dark fruit.
