White Stout with fresh Ethiopia Harrar coffee beans from J.P. Licks added right before bottling When the warm weather hits, we bring out the Snow. Confusing? Indeed, and so is this beer. With zero chocolate malts in the mash, Snow looks like a pilsner. With heaps of wheat and oatmeal, it sips like a creamy stout. With fresh coffee beans added, it smells like a cup of espresso. And with a fairly low ABV, it drinks like a session beer. Youíll be totally perplexed by this beer, and youíll like it. Look for Snow to hit Boston in late April/early May 2013 Note: With no dark malts, this beer is definately not a stout. It is a mix of styles and ingredients. It does not seem to fit any known styles.

Corked and caged bottle from Julios. Pours out a hazy golden color with little to no head. Much cloudier at the bottom. Aroma of coffee and wheat. Flavor of coffee and wheat, but generally quite bland. Very low hopping and alcohol. Lingering sour coffee notes. This beer could benefit from a better yeast or hop profile. If it had Belgian yeast, I might call this a saison. Itís so hard to pin this into one category. Except for the coffee, itís far from a stout IMO.

kramer (4684) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with a one finger fizzy white head that had nice retention. The nose is mostly a mix of malt varieties, wheat, oatmeal, and bready pale malt. The coffee is pretty intense for what youíd expect from a beer of such light color. The flavor is rather unusual, primarily wheat and bready malt under a fairly strong layer of coffee. Lingering light roast coffee on the finish. Lighter bodied with lots of fizzy prickly carbonation. Pretty easy drinking, but the coffee gains intensity the more you have of this and it does get a bit tiring.

Bottle bomb. Pours a hazy golden color with a massive white lacing. Aroma consists of cat food, coffee and some form of infection. High effervescent palate.

Light easy drinker, highly drinkable at 3.4% and yet brings more flavor to the table than I expected. A beer worth trying for sure.

Bottle shared courtesy of Jay at Paulís July 2013 tasting. Pours a milky white body with nice haze and white lacing. Aroma is peppery, spices and tangy wheat. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of peppery wheat, tangy funk, spice and vegetable flavors. Ok, but very strange overall.

I really liked this beer Pours hazy yellow with a thick white head. Smells like coffee. It was bizarre to get such a coffee taste from a beer that wasnít really a stout. Taste- Coffee but with a hint of wheat. I was expecting more bitterness but the beer is really balanced. MF-Carbonated and smooth at the same time. Loved the mouthfeel of this beer. Overall- I have had 4-5 beers from this brewery and this has been my favorite by far. I would be nice if the ABV was a little higher but a great beer.
