COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The third time just might be the charm—Scratch #10-2008 is our third triple in the Scratch Beer series.

This grand cru has been lovingly aged since late-February, yet still unleashes the slightest hint of alcohol heat.

Scratch #10-2008 also has a triple flavor inspiration combining the caramel/toffee notes of dememera sugar and molasses, with citrus and licorice flavors created by the orange peel and star anise; lastly we create a peppery/spicy finish with the same trappist yeast has been used in each Scratch Beer Triple. <UL> <li>O.G.: 22 Plato <li>I.B.U.’s: 18 <li>Malt: Pils, Crystal <li>Adjuncts: Molasses, Dememera Sugar <li>Juju: Orange Peel, Star Anise, Molasses <li>Yeast: Trappist <li>Hops: Nugget, German Northern Brewers</ul>

BBB63 (6013) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Bottle and served in my Chimay chalice: Murky amber orange hue with a small fading head, some lace. The aroma has notes of Belgium candi sugar and yeast, juju, peppermint and anise, orange peel and apricot, some heavy soggy malty grains, and a hint of medicinal iodine. The taste starts, well sweet and fruity and pretty much never changes. Minimal depth of palate honestly,Some spice comes about during the interesting finish. The mouth feel is slick and oily with a metallic finish. U know what they say about too many cooks in the kitchen, same thing here, too many components and none make a clear and pronounced arrival. I hoped some aging would help but alas it did not. There are some nice qualities buried under the muddled mess.

Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Bottled. Poured translucent medium golden with just a little white head on it. The aroma was very resonant with the anise, which gave a very strange twist on the tripel style.. the caramel and molasses backing was also strange, but it worked fairly well.. good in the fact that it makes you think. The flavor also had a whole bunch of anise and molasses along with orange zest, blackened sugar cane, mild floral bitterness, and alcohol amplification on the edges.. this really grew on me with warmth. Heavier-than-medium-bodied on the palate with low overall carbonation but some tight bubbles on the edges.. well-balanced throughout. This was a bizarre example of a tripel, but I kinda dug it.

kramer (4903) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a very turbid amber body with lots of chunkies churning about. Not a very appetizing looking beer. The nose is very spicy with a good bit of anise. Lots of yeast, some orange peel, and just a touch of noticeable alcohol. The flavor is very fruity and spicy, there’s a very strong anise character and a bit of a cough syrup like medicinal note on the finish. Moderate fizzy prickly carbonation. This was pretty tough at first, but it turned out OK in the end.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2009
Bottle: Pours a hazy bright golden with a well-lacing wispy white head. Aroma of sweet biscuity Belgian malt and lots of orange, clove and coriander spice. Body starts with good fullness and sweetness balanced with lots of orange and peppery spices with some licorice and lavender notes. Finishes slightly more bitter and the spices help to conceal the alcohol. A pretty authentic beer that should age well.

checkmatei1 (765) - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2009
Bottle: Poured a orange color with not much head. This grand cru was sweet, fruity, spice, and caramel. The flavor was the same, which made this a pleasure to drink. They could brew this one yearly.
