Available for:
Category Strong Dark Ale
Origin United States, Pennsylvania
Brand Tröegs
Alcohol/vol 11%
With its nuanced blend of sweet and tart cherries, Pennsylvania honey, chocolate malt and a hint of mischief. The essence of this legendary holiday ale, along with its ruby red glow, is born from five varieties of tree-ripened cherries. Local wildflower honey sweetens the celebration, and a spicy Belgian yeast adds subtle notes of cinnamon, clove and allspice. It's not the holidays until you've had your first Mad Elf.

Pours a gorgeous rust-tinged ruby red color with a tiny head. You can't smell the alcohol, per se, but it smells like a strong beer with aromas of honey, banana and clove-like phenols. Soft pepper and hints of cherry appear as the beer warms. The mouth offers more cherry notes along with subtle cinnamon, honey and hop florals. Medium-full, complex and well-balanced despite the high alcohol. The finish is long with great evolution, starting sweet and then moving to a roasty close with a hint of bitterness.
