Tröegs Scratch 61


Formerly brewed at Tröegs Brewing Company
Hershey, Pennsylvania USA
Style: Imperial Stout | Ratings: 4 | Alcohol: 9.1%
Scratch #61-2012 is brewer Jeff Campbell’s recreation of his wedding beer. When Jeff first homebrewed this barrel-aged imperial stout he shared some bottles with the brewing team and it was immediately tagged for a future Scratch beer. Scratch #61 was aged on oak chips for three weeks following fermentation adding a bourbon-esque note. Dominated by rich toffee, toasted coconut and vanilla flavors with enough hops to cut through the sweetness this 9.1% ABV and 42 IBU brew is incredibly drinkable with minimal alcohol burn. On tap at the brewery only.
