Tröegs Scratch 115
After what seems like a lengthy streak of hoppy Scratch beer offerings, we’ve decided to brew something on the opposite side of the spectrum. Scratch #115 is an enticing Imperial Stout fermented with Westmalle yeast and brewed with 2lbs. of dark Belgian chocolate and 12lbs. of tart raspberry purée per barrel. The result is a vibrant Imperial Stout brimming with optimism and infinite merriment. Each passing sip of Scratch #115 reveals its enduring charm. It’s a celebration of two flavors that go hand-in-hand. Chocolate and raspberry… it’s the new peanut butter and jelly!
Many stouts do not fit the classic "Irish" definition as exemplified by Guinness, either due to their hop or roast rates, or higher gravity (in the case of many American stouts). They are still basic stouts, however, not falling into any of the subclasses.
