Cloudy with a reddish tinge, a fruity smelly, malty(ish), can really taste the spices and that’s OK, kind of a course heavy mouth feel. Overall a nice beer.

marked here as retired, but clearly resurrected by Troegs, as it was available in the tasting room this afternoon. This i a stripped down version of their Mad Elf, without the honey and cherries. As a disclaimer, I do not care for Mad Elf.

Looks pretty good, slightly hazy red/brown body, small off white head, some lacing.

Not much on the nose, except a hint of belgian yeast and spices

i can detect the mad elf base, the yeast is prominent. a little on the sweet side, alcohol well hidden.

mouth is medium, finish is slightly sweet and yeasty.

Overall, i guess i should avoid beers with the word elf in it, as this did not hit my palate well. on the other hand, they have a wild elf fermenting away for release in 2018, so........

Very malty. Pours a dark amber. Not too much head on the pour. Smells and tastes like a triple with a lot of flavor. Glad they left the cherry out from the mad elf, gives this one a spicier taste. Would definitely grab again

zero carbonation. tastes like watered-down whiskey. aroma seriously smells like fish. a supreme disappointment, and i'm wondering if the whole batch was actually contained an error. worst i've ever had from this usually excellent PA brewery.
