Troegs Scratch # 34

TroegsScratch From Troegs:

At Tröegs Brewery we love beers that tell a story and beers with surprise endings. Dubbed TBB, Scratch #34 is brewer Tim Mayhew’s take on his favorite beer style.The story behind TBB gets to the foundation of the Scratch Series – experiment..., educate, have fun and beware of pitfalls. We chose to bottle condition TBB as Tim wanted a near-champagne carbonation for this beer. However, yeast does what it does, and in this case, it crapped out before finishing. Even after Tim spent one evening reinvigorating the yeast (that means he shook the hell out of 180 cases of beer for 30 seconds each), the beer still would not finish and a decision had to be made. Always innovating, Tim and the brewers dumped as many bottles as possible into a wood barrel, and we will await the surprise ending. For now, enjoy Scratch #34 on draft and stay tuned for the complete story.

Scratch #34 packs a malty aroma suggesting raisins with hints of chocolate and caramel. On your taste buds, the raisin flavor continues along with traces of dark rum and subtle spice provided by the Westmalle yeast. It finishes with a slight hop bitterness.
