COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This delicately balanced Strong Ale starts with dark copper color mixed with slight reddish hues and a light tan head. Big malty aroma with a Munich character give way to a slight caramel & toffee mixed with spicy noble hop aroma, all wrapped together with a medium-bodied mouth feel. German malt flavor profile with slight roasty notes give Pray for Snow a subtle toffee sweetness balanced with spicy hop bitterness and slight alcohol warming. Served appropriately in a classic snifter.

Bottle from QFC, Seattle
Nice dark amber color with red hue, clean, and with small compact head. Aroma and flavor are caramel based, the aroma is also a bit oxidized, there are enough residual sugars, and it ends with a strong component of roasted nuts; although in the final there is a bit of chicory-like bitterness.
Good beer.

Theydon_Bois (12869) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle at Chriso tasting (thanks initially to Bird) 18/11/12. Lightly hazed dark amber with a thin off white head that clears to the edges and forms a film. Mose is malts, toffee and a little spice. Tastes of toffee, malts, caramel - a little bland and muted in flavour. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, smooth on the palate. Ok.

bhensonb (12585) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours darkly ruddy with a slight tan head. Aroma is malty with a little spice. Med + body. Flavor is quite malty, but there’s some spicy hop. Malt is rather treacle. A little maltier and it might pass for a doppelbock. This one is drinking very nicely.

mcberko (9633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2013
12 oz. bottle, pours a murky dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma is certainly wintery, with notes of toffee, caramel, slight spicy hops, and vanilla. Flavour brings out wonderful toffee sweetness, with just enough spiciness to balance, along with a touch of vanilla. A big malty winter warmer here with everything in perfect balance, maintaining extremely high drinkability. Really well-executed here - excellent.
