Scratch Beer 10 – 2008

12 oz bottle as a single.
Pour is very dark for a Belgian Pale of any description. Has a copper hue with (obviously) limited lace, head and retention. Film forms on the surface white a white collar.
Nose has some serious sherry and liquor notes alongside the alcohol. It seems quite aggressive.
Tastes come on strong with loads of alcohol. It’s hot and unbalanced. Drinks a little Quad-like and has plenty of solvent like character. Thin in the mouth which adds to the obvious alcohol. Some organic (chemistry) aromas with some more solvent esters to the fore.
Rough and edgy. Seems a little too much like Moonshine or everclear to me. Hot and fairly unapproachable. Good decision not to brew this by Troegs! Not good.
