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

Pours a decent beige head that quickly fades to a thin remnant. Brew is a brilliant copper-caramel color, dark but very clear.
Tons of toffee and caramel in the aroma, plus dark fruits: figs and grapes.
Flavor follows the nose: sweet raisins and grapes, chewy bready malts, tons of caramel and brown sugar. A bit of rum raisin meets fruitcake.
Long, long sticky finish from a light but creamy body. Extremely easy drinking, with no hint of the high ABV, and little sting.
Very tasty dopplebock.
