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.

Dark brown with a good dirty head. Smooth bitter malty aroma. Smooth malty bitter palate. Perfectly smooth. Medium body. Awesome beer sitting around the 19 barrel firepit. I wanna get snow!

12 oz. bottle. Pour is a nice deep brownish amber, clear, a nice 1 1/2 fingers of khaki head that sticks. Smell is very promising. Malty with big caramel and dark fruit notes, with a touch of citrus. Also some spicy hop character. Taste is just as good. Malty and complex with a good hop finish that doesn't overwhelm the malt. This reminds of a barley wine but much more sessionable. Good brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Draught. Poured dark brown with thick white head. Much lacing. Malty aroma, with something else, like the aroma of a fine unlit Havana cigar. Full bodied flavour, malt, cocoa, and ’n bietjie molasses. Malty finish. I loved this and hope they’ll bottle it.

Christmas/winter ales are some of my favorites, and this is a solid one. Nice malt base. The requisite spices are present, but I wouldn't mind them being more forward. Rather, this is a heavier version, with a solid caramel flavor. B/B+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bookseeb (130) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Appearance is a dark brown copper color supporting a thin dissipating head leaving patchy lace. Smell of dark specialty malts, dark fruits with a light sweetness. Taste has a rich flavor of the dark fruits, strong malt backbone with a touch of hops to offset the sweetness. Mouthfeel is full and slick. A very nice strong ale thats an easy sipper on the coldest days.

Deep brown body. Hearty malt backbone highlighted by a bevy of lightly toasted and somewhat roasted cereal malt complex. Sweet molasses accents. Very rich grain character.

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Out of the bottle from Fred Meyer. Pours extremely dar with a reddish hue. It has a full white head that is slightly creamy. Smells sweet and malty. Taste is very sweet without being overdone. Slightly nutty and roasted taste that I can’t quite place. Very unique and excellent winter beer. I am excited to add 10 Barrel to the list of great winter seasonals in Oregon!

Deep amber with a white fluffy head and good lacing. Malty nose with hints of toffee. Very balanced and drinkable beer with a nice hop bitterness at then end. A well crafted beer.

mcberko (9344) - 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.
