Troegs Scratch #34

I’m going to skip reviews on the samples of Scratch #33 and #35, since I brought a six-pack of each home (as well as a bomber of the GABF Gold Medal Winner, Flying Mouflan). So, I can do full reviews of those. Since I didn’t buy a six-pack of this, you can probably already guess how this review is going to go. It was also difficult to find info on this beer at all.

ABV: 7%

Style: Dubbel

Trivia: I literally could not find any information on this brew at all, even on Troegs’s website. It looks like they went from Scratch 33 to 35. So, the only trivia I could find is that this beer is bottle conditioned.

Random: I couldn’t tell what this beer after I tasted it. I had to go up and ask. Not usually a good sign.

This poured with a barely there white head with a yellow, clear body. There was no visible carbonation on the body. On the nose, I got some golden fruit (which should have been a clue it was a Belgian dubbel, but I guess I’m not that smart). The fruit was definitely apricots though. There was also a hint of booze on the nose. The nose was much of the same. There was some booze evident and apricots, dates, maybe even a hint of apple. The finish lingers with some booze and not a lot of fruit. This isn’t bad, but it’s not great either. I wouldn’t search this out.

Untappd Rating: 2.0/5.0

    “white head with a yellow, clear body” You definitely are not describing Scratch 34, it pours a deep mahogany. From Troegs: “Scratch #34 packs a malty aroma suggesting raisins with hints of chocolate and caramel. On your taste buds, the raisin flavor continues along with traces of dark rum and subtle spice provided by the Westmalle yeast. It finishes with a slight hop bitterness.”

    34 was tapped on 10/15
