New Beer Friday 9/6/13

Portland brewing Noble Scot: Nice caramel nose with some chestnut notes. The taste begins with toffee & caramel that transitions to a mold grassy bitterness.  The end is slightly ashy with hints of smoke. Surprisingly nice Scottish Ale. @Liquor Stores. 

LTD 07 Oktoberfest Lager: The nose is malty and nutty with a mild earthy hop aroma. The malt dominates the flavor, with a dark roasted, nutty, carmel maltiness. The hops add a bit of spice in the middle. Finishes sweet malty. @Liquor Stores

Meantime Weizen Bock: I've not had this, but Weizenbocks are generally sweet, fruity & full of spicy esters. @Bayou

Meantime Old Smoked Bock: Haven't had this one yet either. A smoked bock sounds delicious, I guess we'll find out this afternoon. @Bayou. 

St. Feuillien Amitie: Again, me no try. If this is the beer that I think it is - it's a collaboration between St. Feuillien & Green Flash Brewing out of San Diego. Look for a Duvel-ish style beer, with a lot Amarillo hop smack. I'm really excited to try this one. @Bayou. 

Anderson Valley Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Stout: The nose has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, licorice and wood. Taste is medium sweet and & similar to the aroma with a light bitterness, vanilla, milk and chocolate finish. Medium body with a soft & oily creaminess. @Bayou. 

Did I miss anything?

Cheers!
