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.

adnielsen (8963) - 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.

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Sample at the Memorial Day Deck Beers tasting on 05/27/2013: Pours a clear dark mahogany color with a medium thick off-white head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, oak and plum. Full, syrupy body with flavors of earthy malt, figs and oak. The finish is rich and malty with a dark fruit aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

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

Ughsmash (7121) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2013
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.

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.

deyholla (6569) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a clear deep sappy amber with a gray head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has a nice sweet grain, biscuit and toffee note with a bit of fruits and some backing oak and vanilla notes. Flavor starts with biscuit and toffee and has more oak, roasted malts and vanilla in the finish with a touch of dark fruits.
