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>

auerbrau (3157) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 20, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Pours a lightly hazed pale gold, with a tall rim of white head. Aroma is a slightly biting alcohol, muddled spice and yeast phenol. Flavor develops similar profile, with a real grainy texture from the phenols that are rather harsh. Sweetness sticks some spice notes to the roof of my mouth. This beer is a bit confused. The high gravity and high sugars don’t make it particularly quaffable, but the grain and spice notes are decent. The yeast comes on a little too strong, even for this style. Not much hop presence. Finishes on those wax-like yeast phenols. Not my favorite tripel.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Pours a medium peach amber with a thinning white head fades to a film- little lace. Aroma is peppery, anise/licorice almost cardamon like, sweet and syrupy. Very sweet flavor- sgary, carramel syrup, toffee, fruity- pear and apricots, candi sugar-like, spicy peppery, citrus- orange rind and zest- and a sweet finish with some more orange in the aftertaste dna back of the throat. Too cloying especially for a tripel. Carbonation is low- not dry, wierd spiciness, and just off.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2008
12oz bottle, from Capone’s (Norristown, PA). Pours medium amber, capped with a small white head. Aroma of spice, white pepper, citrus, and some candi sugar. Flavor is on the sweet side with candi sugar and honey, with a hefty dose of spice. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy. Long, spicy finish, mainly anise. A bit heavy on the spice for me.

Snoop59 (105) - Penn Run, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Growler from the Brewery. Pours a hazy, golden amber color with a small slightly off-white head that diminishes quickly but lasts throughout as a thin coating. Minimal lacing. Aroma is of cloves, anise, and bubble gum. Initial flavor is malty sweet with the spices of cloves and anise coming through. Finish is somewhat dry, warming and short. Medium bodied, soft carbonation.

Sammy (8405) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2008
Thanks Dr. Jay for saving me one of these little gems. Virtually no carbonation and light golden yellow with no head. Yet tasty for sure. Alcohol knocked me over for the rest of the aft, nice spiciness(clove, orange peel, bannana yeast, licorice, corriander), medium mouthfeel.No question that over time these bottles lost carbonation.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2008
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of new vinyl (plastic), yeast, peaches, and spices. Pretty terrible scent. Poured orange/amber in color with a tiny, golden head that disappeared immediately. Cloudy. Full of tiny particles. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of honey, lavender, yeast, anise, and plastic. Medium body. Chalky texture. Soft to average carbonation. Sweet, fruity, spiced finish. By far the WORST in the Scratch series so far.

bp (785) - Queens, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Bottle: orangeish with a foamy white head, aroma of yeast, banana, nice sweet smell, taste is a bit of a surprise in that it is fairly spicy, also has yeast and honey flavors, a bit of a warming feeling in the throat as well. Pretty decent beer.

dmac (3919) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2008
12 oz bottle purchased from Capones. Pours a slightly thin bodied orange with an average size quickly dissipating white bubbly head. Aroma has lots going on with lots of sugar, molasses, bread, alcohol, mint and grains. Full bodied with average carbonation and only slight alcohol warming from the 10.2%. Flavor of pepper, bread, alcohol and slight balck licorice. A pleasant abbey and I might have bumped the score up slightly since this is a style I have really been enjoying lately.
