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%

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 26, 2005
This amber ale poured with a modest off-white head. The initial taste was fairly sweet and malty, with a slightly acidic finish. This was a satisfying, but unremarkable beer.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2004
Bottle pours brownish amber, slightly hazy, large frothy tannish colored head, very sticky lacing, with light carbonation.   Malty aroma, slightly sweet and biscuity.   Soft hop bitterness, amidst a grainy maltiness.   Mild overripened fruit flavor as well.   Nice body, but mediocre mouthfeel.   Finishes with a slightly syrupy sweet cloying feeling, if that makes sense.   A bit heavier than yer normal English Pale Ale, but not bad.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, roasted nuts), lightly hoppy (apricot), with a light note of wort. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Not a whole lot going on with this one, and there is a bit of a raw/unfermented worty character to it...homebrewers may dig that smell more than me.

Bottle. Pours clear medium amber. Thin off white filmy head. Neutral nose. A little funky. Crisp, forward attack. Active carb. Resiny c-hop comes through at the end.

arminjewell (5995) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Pours dark red with off white head, aroma is full of caramel and bread malt. Taste up front is sweet caramel and spice with some bready malt that finishes sweet. Not bad.

BVery (5937) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle. Clear orange pour with a smaller head. Aroma is toasted bread, caramel, and kinda funky. Medium palate. Taste is burnt caramel and very hoppy - a bit unbalanced.

blipp (5857) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweet toffee malts and old herbal hops. Tastes like a shitty amber ale. Not awful, but definitely not good.

douglas88 (5797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle from the Utah State Store. Pours a bright copper color with a nice thick beige head, and lots of lacing. The aroma is sweet caramel and lots of toasted malts. A nice fruity and malty flavor; some toasted malts, light hops, a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. A decent winter beer. Not bad.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Aroma is toasty, roasty, a little sweet, with a touch of aspirin. Pours amber ish. Flavors of toasted malts, caramel, toffee. Some roast all with a almost unpleasant medicinal finish. Not my favorite.
