Bock-style ales were adapted by Munich brewers from a 14th century recipe from the town of “Einbeck” and traditionally feature a toasted malt flavor, low hop bitterness and a dry, lager-like finish. Brewed to highlight flavors and aromas from specialty malts and toasted French oak, Alaskan’s Troppelbock is a much bigger, complex, and slightly sweeter take on the classic Doppelbock style. 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.

    A big thick beer, well made if not all that exciting. This was almost too heavy and sweet, but it wasslow sipped with friends so it wasn't too hard to finish this 22 oz beast. Deffinitely had typical bock notes.

    A deep amber colored body, nice cap that faded at a quick pace, some spotty lace left behind. Aromas and flavors are all about the malts. Lots of caramel, and biscut, the oak is in the backgound with a vanilla presence. Some dark fruit notes are scattered throughout. The alcohol is hidden fairly well, mouthfeel is full and chewy. Overall it was pretty decent, a little sweet but not bad.
