Pours dark amber with thick creamy head. Roasted malt smell.... difficult to smell at suggested serving temperature. Roasted taste, very malt forward. Overall.. fairly good winter beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark with an off white head. Aroma is malty, roasty with some slight coffee notes. Taste is full of caramel notes and a hint of coffee and chocolate elements. The finish is smooth and a little chalky; although, it seems to be almost slightly watery in a strange way. This one just begs for more oomph.

Snow Day is an incredible beer. It tasted like an amber to me, but creamier.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. I have had this beer a few times and really enjoyed it, but never gave it a review. Pours a ruby-tinted dark brownish black with good clarity. Small sheet of lace atop. The nose is full of fruity aromatics and freshly-ground up hops. Zing! Thatíll do. Fresh, potent, if not sinus-clearing.
Good clean feel with ample carbonation. Easy to sip, easier to gulp. The hoppy quality carries over to the flavor, but it doesnít take over as a nice dry graham cracker sweetness forces its way through. Bitterness isnít cutting at all, as the singe left on the palate, fleets away quickly, ready to be bombarded again.
A good beer. I wasnít even sure of what this style was, but thatís okay. I approached this one with no misconceptions or prejudices. Iíd gladly have this again.

A lovely and somewhat grassy dark pale ale that hints at the first days of spring. Flavorful and robust, it'll keep you warm through winter's darkest days.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nose is a bit hoppy and balances to a delicious toasted caramel, toffee flavor and some earthy citrus flavors. Fairly sweet, malty flavor with a decent addition of hoppy bitterness and medium body and malty finish. Very drinkable and full of flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice dark pour with a little citrus, floral & fruit aroma. Very good initial hoppy bite and overall balanced hop proflie thats hard to describe exactly. Really is good for a snow day but I could see myself drinking this in almost any season, good beer and great brewery.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of cocoa, toffee, dark earth, citrus fruit, especially orange peel, and subtle cola. Very dark brown, almost black, with a fading khaki head. Dry, bitter, and roasty, with flavors of cocoa, spruce, and orange peel. Medium body, lively carbonation, with a bitter finish containing some lingering, dark roast coffee flavors.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown colour with big creamy beige head. Aroma is a bit like old smoke, lots of roastiness, bit of hops poking through. Little bit of chocolate and spice. Touch of funk too. Interesting but a bit strange. Taste is nice. Biscuity maltiness, quite dry roastiness, touch of the usual chocolate and bit of coffee too. Very very biscuity! Not as bitter as I would expect but maybe this has lost something on the way over to Japan. Slight lingering hoppiness though, citrussy maybe. Tastes really good actually, even if it is not exactly how it was when it started.

Citrus and spice wafts from this deep brown beer. Foamy head and light body. Nice toasted flavor with orange bitterness. Finish is light and refreshing.
