COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They took a batch of Troegenator wort and fermented it with a peppery yeast (one of the two yeast strains in Mad Elf) to create a more complex, spicier Troegenator. At a bold 9% abv, this beer is "liquid bread" for sure, and maybe a Christmas cookie as well.

12 oz bottle labeled as Scratch 24. Poured a nice deep reddish amber with a smaller foamy off white head. Aroma was pepper yeast, dried cherry, slight hint of chocolate and grain. Medium bodied with some noticeable alcohol and a dry finish with some lingering heat. Flavor of yeast, dry fruit and grain and some chocolate towards the finish. Solid and reminds me more of Mad Elf then Troegenattor.

How the heck did I not rate this one yet? Good thing I kept my notes from the cooperstown fest. Apparently they wont make this beer anymore and it was just for that fest. Similar to the troegenator, deep amber almost brown color hazy with a good head. Aroma is very yeasty, somewhat spicy and very estery/fruity. Plum and dates with an additional sweetness coming from the added fermentation and higher abv. Good smooth finish. Never woudl have guessed this to be 9%. Great beer.

Lubiere (10439) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2004
Ommegang fest. Described as a double bock with belgian yeast. Hazy brown, with very little aroma (too cold). Rather sweet chemical cherry lollipop tatse. Body is more on the heavy side. soso.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Kennett Fest. Supposed to be Troegenator made with another Troegs yeast. I didn’t quite understand what they are going for here but this wasnt bad. Taste was more of a strong dopplebock than an abbey dubbel, but what do I know? The taste was a bit too sweet and the hops didnt have nice bite. Warming yeah, but not too tasty.

Poured a brownish maple color with a small and sticky off white head and light lacing on the glass. Aroma of banana, yeast, and dark fruits. Sweet candy sugar taste, fruity, yeasty, some maple syrup as well. Nice full and round mouthfeel.
