Beer Review #10: Troegs Mad Elf

10 Dec

I finished my night off with this fine beer. I first had it last November and it really caught my attention. Earlier in the year I had tried Sam Adams Double Chocolate Cherry, a beer that I can only describe as transcendent. Since then, I was looking for a beer with a similar cherry or chocolate flavor. This beer really nailed the cherry flavor.

Menu description: Cherry notes, brown sugar, mix of sweet spices.

ABV: 11%

My thoughts: A Belgian strong dark ale. This is quite good! It’s got a strong cherry taste and the spices really add to the character of the beer. It’s got an aroma reminiscent of bananas, oddly enough. It doesn’t taste like it’s a strong beer, which can be dangerous. Simply delightful!

Number of times I’ve had it: I’ve tried this on 3 separate occasions, most recently tonight, and it’s fantastic each time. This definitely gets a recommendation from me.

Rating: 4/5
