The combination of Cherries, Honey, and Chocolate Malts delivers gentle fruits and subtle spices. Fermented and aged with a unique yeast , this ruby red beer has significant warming strength that underlies the character of this Ale.

Nice beer. Cherry aroma with dark brown pour. Taste is a nice, subtle fruity taste with the cherry standing out. The honey gives this a nice finish.

Smell is good, beer has a "weird" taste for beer. Not sure if it's because of the other items brewed in it. Beer is ok, taste doesn't interfere with overall enjoyment ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The Mad Elf never disappoints. This year's edition keeps up the strong tradition set by Troegs to produces the best Christmas seasonal. The Elf smacks your palate with honey and cherries. A fruit cornucopia leaving you satisfied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012, so aged a year. Brightly red color, zero head or lace. Lighter cherries, honey sweetness, pleasantly blended. Booze is somewhat hidden, yet not absent. Tasty.

I found this beverage staggeringly off, with which esters, vanillin, Cavendish bananas, nutritional yeast, honey, and crushed aspirin took the lead role. I’d be genuinely pleased if this winter spiced ale and myself never crossed paths again.

Dark amber pour at ChurckKey. A whisp of a head. Malty and spiced nose. Not much hint of cherry in the nose or the taste. Nice finish with some floral honey components.

tillmac62 (194) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Pours a beautiful ruby amber with a reasonable head and lacing. The nose is of cherries against a slight chocolate coupled with a typical Belgian yeast aroma. It also has hints of sweetness and alcohol. Almost medium body with good carbonation. Nice slick mouthfeel. A superbly balanced beer, with a flavor profile similar to the nose. Tart cherry over a nice sweetness with a chocolate background. For an 11% alcohol brew, this one hides it well - but you get the nice burn all the way through. Crisp finish with a burst of flavor from the carbonation that brings the spice flavor to the forefront. The finish is also where the alcohol becomes more evident as the beer nears room temperature.

At a tasting, thanks Yoav, no head, quite hazy rusty red colour, aroma of strawberries and raspberries, with a touch of malt in the back, strong jammy flavour with a strong and a bit coarse bitterness, some alcohol coming through. Heavy and unappealing.

Bottle from UDBeernut. Pours amber with nice white head. Aroma is all spice and cherry. Taste is sweet, bready, spicy. Aftertaste sticks around a bit, sweetness lingers.
