3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Oct. 7, 2012 (purchased at BevMo in La Mesa (San Diego, Calif.) as part of a winter variety 12-pack for $15.99 (with card) on Oct. 5, 2012). Dark, mahogany with two fingers of khaki tan head. Below average retention all-around.
Smelled roasty nuts, toffee, caramel and chocolate. Really comes together nicely.
Tasted a bit darker overall than the smell. A lot more bitter as well. Got roasty nuts, dark chocolate, smoky fire, wood, ash, toffee, coffee, coffee beans and caramel.
Full body. Slick texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish.
I was a bit disappointed with this beer after liking the Chai Wheat so much. It just didnít really do anything for me. Iíve had some better winter warmer styles.

Brown in color with a decent after taste. Though there is a prodominant bitter flavor. good body/mouthfeel raise it above a "6/10".

The aroma is spices and complex, hard to describe. The flavor is spices, fruit tartness and a dry finish. Hard to describe, very good overall.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark mahogany with a small yellowish tan head. Smells like toasted bread, hints of caramel and toffee, and maybe caramelized or candied raisins. Taste is bitter up front and then moves to what is almost like a candied, rum soaked raisin and hints of toffee. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Pyramid Snow Cap Ale finishes with a bit of lingering bitterness.
