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>

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of spices - espeically cinnamon, combined with medium notes of malt. The alcohol leaves a burn in the mouth. Thanks CaptainCougar for coming to Denmark and sharing this.

brokensail (10738) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
A: The beer pours a slightly hazed orange color with a thin and short lived white head, though there are plenty of carbonation bubbles on the glass. S: Smells like pure candy. Intensely sugary with lots and lots of banana notes. A bit of a floral honey note and some other sweet/overripe fruits, perhaps some pears. Strong herbal aroma, especially anise and perhaps sage. T: Lots of sweet sugar, caramel, and brown sugar flavor. A bit of a white grape flavor and some other intensely sweet fruit flavors. The anise character is a bit more subdued, but it comes through more and more as the beer warms up. M: Medium in body with a somewhat low carbonation. O: I wasn’t a huge fan of the anise flavor in this beer. It seems to just take over. Luckily there wasn’t any booze presence, which is surprising for an 11% beer.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2010 Hazy amber with a tiny white head. Sweet peachy aroma with mild hoppy and yeasty notes. Flavour was sweet and malty with caramel and anise notes.

12oz bottle shared courtesy of TomDecapolis. Poured a medium and hazy amberish/orange color with a very small sized off white head. Aromas of spices, anise, fruity, and yeast. Tastes of breadiness, spices, and candi sugar. On the sweeter side with light alcohol in the finish.

Sammy (8527) - 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.
