Troegs “Mad Elf”

      ‘Tis the season for Holiday and Winter brews! There are a myriad of spiced and traditional seasonal beers to choose from! This month I’ll highlight four of my favorite beers that are perfect for helping spread Holiday Cheer!
      TroegsMad ElfAmerican Strong Ale is brewed with cherries, honey and chocolate malts. It pours a festive reddish brown color with a one finger thick tan head. The aroma is incredible, with the delightful smells of honey, cherries, brown sugar, candied fruits, malt and alcohol. the taste is fruity and tart cherry at first, as it warms up there are notes of chocolate and spices. Towards the end the 11% abv makes itself known at times with sweet cough syrup moments, but nothing off-putting. The mouthfeel is full and a little syrupy. The finish is sweet, boozy and spicy. Not only does this beer look festive in a glass, the taste translates well to accompany the holiday season! A little pricey at around $16 per 6-pack, but who doesn’t splurge a little on great holiday brews? Here’s to Good Beers!
