Tröegs Scratch 87


Brewed by Tröegs Brewing Company
Hershey, Pennsylvania USA
Style: Doppelbock | Ratings: 0 | Alcohol: 11.5%
It’s been quite some time since our last barrel-aged release. Well, we were so excited about this bourbon barrel-aged version of our flagship year-round Double Bock, Troegenator, that instead of bottling it, we decided to make it available exclusively in our Tasting Room! Everything you love about Troegenator is present – the strong malt aroma, rich chewy body, and warm, tingly spiciness. With that said, it was time well-spent in the bourbon barrel for this already dense, delicious treat. The Nator returns after more than five months from its holiday inside Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. The result is a lush Double Bock with undertones of vanilla, oak, toasted coconut, and tangy bourbon warmth. Given the recent Arctic temperatures in Central PA recently, this is one beer that’s sure to warm you up from the inside out!
