Birch Bock (Alaskan Brewing Company)

8.5% ABV
Purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe ($7.99/22 oz. bottle) and poured into pilsner  glasses.

His Notes:

This Pilot Series release from Alaskan Brewing Company pours a beautiful burnt orange with a tight, off-white head.  The rich nose mixes strong and syrupy malt with mild wood and toffee aromas, and the eye-opening taste offers dessert-style fruit syrup, caramel, and toffee, along with a woody texture that is noticeable without dominating the palette. Brewed with real Alaskan birch syrup, Birch Bock is a strong and distinctive beer with a lingering, malt-heavy aftertaste, but it remains fairly balanced throughout.  Birch Bock doesn’t overdose on the saccharine malt like many bock beers, and the wood flavor is crisper and lighter than most beers of this type due to the use of birch instead of the typical oak or alder
