COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Although itís named after our most famous weather event, this beer has nothing in common with the harsh bite of winter. In fact itís smooth slightly chocolaty flavor helps you forget Jack Frost altogether. German pale and Munich malts form the base flavors with hints of chocolate and caramel. Very soft, floral German hops ease the finish into dryness. Available on draft and in bottles from November to March.

Trade from Ron. Thanks! Sweet, malty, caramel nose. Palate is smokey, a bit of gritty depth, more malty notes, with some butterscotch. This is really well done. Complex and enjoyable.

On tap at the Brewery. Poured a nice dark amber with decent head and good lacing. Good nose of chocolate malt and licorice, taste is of toasted malt. Smooth easy drink, malted but not cloying. Good stuff.

A: Dark Brown/light Reddish hue, mild Brown Head, no lacing S: Dark Roasted Chocolate Malt, mild Nutty and Coffee on back end T: Dark Chocolate Malt, mild Nuttiness M: Medicore Carbonation, Medium to Full Bodied, Malty Finish Overall, I have always been a fan of the Blizzard Bock (aka Hoops) but this years offering seem to lacked in carbonation, which really enhances the flavor.

A dark ruby-red with a white head. Roasted chocolates with ruby-red fruits, yet not sweet. Good sized body, with a simple linger.

Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with a frothy brown head. Head fades pretty quickly. Definite chocolate-hazelnut vibe to it, with a very creamy mouthfeel. Good beer for sure, one of the best Iíve had from Flying Bison, I think. Almost a little too sweet, though.

(bottle - 12 oz) Reddish brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is lightly sweet with some roasted and smoked malts along with some caramel. Flavor is much the same. Begins with some caramel malts, some smoke, roasted malts, and a light bitter coffee finish. Smooth and sweet. Not bad.

2009-01-24. Dark red brown body is near headless. Flavour has a tangy quality to it, sweetish overall with light bitterness. (6+) Mild aroma, tangy malt, lightly nutty,vague hint at smoke/roast. (6+) Average palate. Meh, okay. Thanks to Mabel for pointing out I had not entered this! Bottle. Coles Rare Beer Fest, Buffalo.
