Tis the season for a nice full flavor beer. Troegs Mad Elf has a wonderful taste combination of Cherries, Honey, Dark Chocolate, and spice. This beer has a nice red appearance, and should be enjoyed responsibly. (I've sampled more then one on a occasion or two.) Another beer that is limited supply, and can run out faster then it comes in. Most distributors and bottle shops are kept in the loop to how much, and when they can receive it. (So make good friends with your local beer guy!)
