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.

COD grading - Dale. Bottle from Safeway Redmond Oregon. Foamy pour, deep red. Carmel, with plenty of hops. a little thick. pretty good for a winter beer... I’d take it over a jubal ale.

Again, 10 Barrel offers a fairly accurate commercial deScription here, lending to me not having to say much. Booze is light for a strong ale, good balance, solid beer.

Guess I've never rated this. Well tick tick tick. Darker toasted malt, toffee, and some darker fruit plus earthy notes in the nose. Auburn pour not much head hazy little lace. Flavored lean more towards dark fruit with underlying residual sugar darker toast and mild earth. Lingering sweet residuals. Medium carb.

12 oz bottle. Bottled 13 Oct. Winter 2015. Pours a medium, well retained light beige head, with extensive lacing, over a clear dark brown (SRM 27) body.......nose is dark toasted malts, with treacle, toffee/caramel notes, mild dried fruits with raisin, plum tones, moderate herbal hop spice......taste is slightly sweet with dried fruits, raisin, plum, toffee/caramel, all from the malts, finishing with a spicy, moderately bitter hop addition.......mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, minimal alcohol, carbonation adds a pleasant creaminess. The ABV is a bit low for the style. However, the malts are rich, nourishing, satisfying, and just balanced back by the moderate hop spice and bitterness. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

22 oz bottle poured. Pours a reddish brown color with a lasting fizz ring head. I hesitated on this for a couple years now, because I hate snow, and I’m quite superstitious. A little snow for good beer can’t hurt I suppose. Rich caramel malt aroma and flavor. Ideal beer for standing outside in 10 degree temperature, around a fire. Which is exactly what I was doing during my first and only visit to 10 barrel. Hope to be back soon! Good beer.

This is a robust, sweet ale. It is a little like a hearty brown ale crossed with a light stout. I tasted some tobacco, molasses, and a sharp, astringent finish. The aroma is sweet and chocolatey. Very good.

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.
