COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Powder Hound is our Winter Ale, and since it is our own creation we call it a Northern Rockies Strong Ale. Powder Hound satisfies, with the fine hand selected British hops fully complimenting the smooth malt notes. After a day on the ice or in the snow, enjoy a Powder Hound Winter Ale. Available November through March. ABV varies from 6.0% to 7.5%

Light-copper colored, with a slight amount of haze and a nice frothy off-white head that lingers. Bold malty aroma with notes of spice and a floral bouquet. Medium-full bodied, average carbonation, and a lingering finish. Emphasis on sweet and malty with nice balancing hop flavor. Doesn’t finish dry, but dry and bitter enough to balance the sweetness of the malt and invite another sip. Warm and inviting beer. Unique.

Pours golden amber; good, lingering head; nice lacing. Surprisingly pleasant mouthfeel despite the overall dominant maltiness. Subtle hint of weed, dirty finish. Solid ABV helps make this a solid winter beer.

Call it the clash of aromas: you get both a hoppy citrus and a malty bread plus some sort of spice. Taste is equally well balanced though the hops win out by just a little on the finish. Pours to a beautiful head. My bottle stated the alcohol content at 7.2%, but it was not at all boozy. I realize I drank this a little out of season, but I enjoyed it on the home patio with an early evening chill in the air, so I’m going to say it all balanced out.

COMRADEJOSH (291) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2013
floral aroma with a carmely taste that uniquely has a hop bite. very warming on the palate better than the rest of other brands winter hop bombs.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Sweet, spicy and floral nose. Tases about the same, a bit grainy and sweet up front, but the weird spicy/floral hops do a good job of balancing the overall impression.

lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 19, 2009
Copper pour, low head, medium lacing. Spicy alcoholic aroma. Nicely carbed with a dry spicy flavor. Piney fruitiness reminiscent of an IPA. Some unpleasant bitterness. Not very complex, an average Winter brew.

DMLINAZ (286) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Nice hoppy aroma. Flavor starts with hops but instead of a hoppy punch finishes with a certain maltiness, breadiness. Enjoyable.

waltersrj (280) - Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Dark, deep amber pour with a small off white head. Mild carbonation and no lacing. The nose is grass, citrus, malty, and light fruits. The taste is deep malt, nutty, and light bitterness from the hops. The palate is medium bodies, and somewhat oily.

Bottle. Light brown beer with zippo head. Aroma of sweet malt and jelly toast. Really. Stawberry jam I think. Taste is sweet and mouthfeel is average. Does not taste very strong. Fruitiness, including strawberries, is present and no hop flavors detected. While I am not a hophead, there needs to be more in this beer. Not so much for flavor, just needs a little more balancing bitterness. Like I’ve said before, this brewery seems to make lighter bodied beers than is normal for each style.

bottle pours a reddish brown with little to no head. aroma is nutty and malty. taste is light hops, nutty, and malty. a mediocre beer.
