Troegs Mad Elf 2009

I met up with some friends at the Kite & Key on Monday and while they still had a few Allagash left from their Craft Beer Express Event, I saw they had a Mad Elf from 2009 and had to get it.
Not much of a smell to this one.  First sip, I got lots of sugary notes.  A little bit of caramel comes out but it doesn't stray too far from my first impression of sugar flavors.  The cherries were basically non-existent after a year.  I've heard from people that have had many different ages of Mad Elf and they all agreed that the cherry flavor comes and goes each year.  I'm excited to try the 2008 and the 2010 I have to compare them to this one.
