After a very recent tour of the Troegs Brewery, I decided to age the Mad Elf and enjoy a 22oz Troegenator tonight, served in my trusty "Samuel Adams" glass.
Appearance: Pours a light ruby color (when held to the light). Two fingers of a cream-colored head with small, tight CO2 bubbles.
Smell: Strong malty/bready scent with some hint of sweetness.
Taste: A Toasty/nutty flavor to start, with some spice to follow. I can taste the alcohol in the finish, but it certainly doesn't dominate the flavor (Labeled 8.2% ABV).
Mouthfeel: Medium-to-Full bodied and pretty damn smooth.
Drinkability: This is quite drinkable considering the strength. This is an easy drinking 22oz-er, but I wouldn't order too many of these in one sitting.
Overall: You can tell that the Bros at Troegs brew the beers that they enjoy - to the benefit of their customers! If you are fortunate to be able to venture to Harrisburg, you should definitely stop in for a Saturday tour. I also recommend picking up the locally, hand-crafted Trogenator ceramic drinking horns. It holds the full 22oz and the only downside is that you can't put it down once it's filled! :-D

A - one inch creamy, off-white head, very deep red coloring, mahogany, beautiful
S - alcohol, toffee, molasses, caramel, lots of malt, faint apples
T - roasted/toasted grains, malt, lots of caramel, can taste the alcohol but in a good way, sweet but has nice balancing with the ever faint hops in the background
M - creamy, dry, full bodied
O - This is a fantastic beer. From the appearance to the aroma to the taste - delicious, Beautiful coloring, the taste and smell of the malt and the caramel is great. I would recommend this beer to anyone regardless of their taste preferences.
