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%

sweet undertones, some malt, bit thin for the style. spice - some spruce? maybe vanilla? bready flavors. lightly hopped. not bad - but I like my winter beers a bit more robust.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2003
A brown clear ale with an off white head. A caramel aroma and a touch sweet. The flavor is bitter up front with caramel and some nuttiness to follow. The bitter does linger a bit.

marcus (6349) - 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.

12 oz. Bottle. Can notice alcohol and a fairly stong sweet fruit aroma. Amber body with off white head. The flavor had a sugar candy and sweet fruit flavor with an alcohol warming effect. If you like sweet beer this may be for you.

Pours a copper color with a decent off-white head. Malty caramel aroma, slightly weak, nothing to get excited about. Decent sweetness and a light bitterness to finish.

Eh, just not that good!!! Sampled at the AZ Strong Beer Festival...but wish I would have used the ticket elsewhere. Thin, mild-mannered, and weak...kind of like the kid you used to pick on when you were younger!!! This beer had toffee, caramel, raisin, and brown sugar notes. Even "after a day on the ice or in the snow", I wouldn’t enjoy a Powder Hound Winter Ale. Maybe the taste dissipates in the sun???

yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Dark amber colour with thick light tan head that retains well. Nice lace. Nose is grassy, some citrus, and baked goods sweetness. On the palate the palate is some faint chocolate, malt sweetness, and semi-harsh alcohol to hops flavor. The flavors aren’t integrated very well. Finish has a metallic grassy characteristic.

Pours translucent copper with plenty of bubbles and a huge head that last a good, nice while. The nose is balanced for the most part but erring on the grainy malty side. The flavor kicks off with a lot of unfermented barley malt though. Ehhhh. This lingers in the finish. Brew it longer.
