90pointsAlaskan Pilot Series Troppelbock

This “imperial doppelbock” is not for the faint of heart. Aged on oak chips, it boasts assertive aromas of caramel malt, vanilla, pecan pie and sweet toasted oak, with a warm, alcohol presence. Flavors of dark red plum, cherry and fig counter the otherwise rich and malt-driven flavors. The palate is big and warm, the round, lush mouthfeel coupled with low carbonation. Flavors of vanilla bean, brown sugar and toasted oak linger on the long finish. Lauren Buzzeo
