New Beer Friday 11/22/19
Saltfire - Putin on the Fritz: The aroma is dark charred malt and a little bakers dark chocolate. The taste is roasty malts up front, then some dark fruits and molasses. Finishes with a good amount of semisweet chocolate. Nice round mouthfeel with a hint of booze. 9.4% - Available at Saltfire
Toasted Barrel Strawberry Stout: There's a good amount of chocolate happening here, it's not overpowering, more like dry cocoa. The strawberry is noticable and pleasant and gives the beer an almost holiday like feel. 9.0% - Available at Toasted Barrel.
Kiitos - Egyptian Honey Wit: This beer with made with Egyptian purple barely from local Solstice Malt and local honey. It starts with bubblegum and clove. Clover comes next with a smidgen of lemon peel which drags you into a thankful dry finish. This one is pretty yeast driven with a lot of phenolic pepperiness.Very limited batch size. 5.0% - Available at Kiitos
Salt Flats Barrel Aged Kilted Harley: Right off the bat this Scotch Ale offers great toffee and fruity esters from the yeast. From there you get a bit of dark fruit and rum soaked cake. The barrel adds more dark rum & bourbon - rounding out the sweet maltiness of the beer. Quite tasty. 9.0% - Available starting today at Salt Flats.
Roadhouse - Mountain Jam Vol 5: Missed out on this new NEIPA. 6.5% - found at DABC
