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>

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Bottle sampled with Mad_Indian. Pours light amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of spices, belgian yeast, citrus, and fruit. The flavor is sweet, biscuit, spices, citrus, and alcohol is noticeable. Boring brew for such a good style.

My wonderful husband brought a growler of this home fresh from the brewery. Belgian yeast and spices dominate both the aroma and the flavor. Sweet, but not overly so. I quite enjoy this scratch.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Loose, sudsy white head. Cloudy brown banana toned body with matching unripened banana peel and orange citrus aromas. Smells grassy green and rubbery. Some alluring caramel sugar and vanilla tones improve the staging of this beer somewhat. Sharp, pungent, yeasty flavor. The yeast seems tired out here. Lots of raw herbal character and indelicate spicing. I’m a big fan of Troegs but the Scratch beers have me scratching my head and I’ve pretty much had them all.

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.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Pours a lightly hazy golden with amber notes and a smaller bubbly white head head. Aroma of ginger, lots of other Belgian yeast esters, licorice, star anise and some citrus notes. Flavor was bready, lots of spicy notes, ginger, anise and a few others I can’t pinpoint. Light alcohol. Wasn’t a huge fan of the spices.

nimbleprop (7851) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Sampled at Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore. Pours a transparent copper orange with a ringing, soft white head and tight bubbles. Mild aroma that’s a little boozy, grassy and yeasty. Flavor is similar to the aroma with more candy sweetness and just a little sour. Medium thickness on the palate.

from a 12 oz bottle. nicely sweet, but a little over the top on spices. That said, they still make a nice beer as they don’t completely overpower the beer. I liked it. Not likely to win any medals, but this is my type of beer.
