Troegs–Two new Chocolate Scratch Beers in the Tanks

TroegsScratchFrom Troegs Blog:
Two more scratch beers in the tanks in the last 2 days: a variation of last year’s popular chocolate stout (scratch #27) on Friday, and today, a variation of the dubbel that was to be Scratch #34. The stout’s looking to clock in at 6-7% abv and was brewed with Warrior and Simcoe hops. It also saw a whole lot of cacao nibs as it passed through the hopback and will most likely see more, as well as some vanilla beans during conditioning.

The dubbel was pretty traditional coming out of the kettle, but will see nibs and possibly some fruit during conditioning. A work in progress… stay tuned.
