On Thursday (1/23), Troeg’s Brewing (Hershey, PA) will release Scratch #131 – Belgian-style Brown Ale.
Its flavor originates in the Abbey Ale yeast strain, which produces a distinctive fruity character akin to dried dark fruit. On your palate, traces of toffee, chocolate, caramel, and dark rum appear as well as delicate spices, roasted nuts, and lightly toasted grains. The addition of Belgian Candi sugar and cane sugar bolsters the ale’s sweetness.
Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale (w/ Candi Sugar)
Availability: Draft only. One-time release.
8.3% ABV, 19 IBUs
