Tröegs Mad Elf

I’m not at all sure that I would classify this as a Belgian Strong Dark, in as much as its characteristics seem much more like an Old Ale or an American Barleywine.
As expected, very little carbonation on the pour and a quick to form (and to disappear) head. It’s very sweet, with lots of honey, but not much of the advertised cherries.
The alcohol content means it’s pretty warming on the way down. Full in the mouth without being overpowering, this is a beer that needs to be treated with respect and then you’ll enjoy it more.
Very smooth, with only a little bit of that slick oily feeling of such high ABV’s at the very end.
Thanks to meathookjones for this sample.
