COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 21 year tradition, Snow Cap is a proud tribute to the potent winter ales traditional to Great Britain. This heroic beer takes our full-bodied winter warmer to a whole new level. not by adding extra spices or exotic ingredients, nor by subtracting any of the magic. Instead, our brewers took the same flurry of roasted dark chocolate and caramel malts, and generous hops, and powered it all into a more concentrated experience.

Draft at the brewery. Pours really dark. Tan cream head. Sweet plum aroma. Dark fruit taste with some plum and raisin. Finishes with bold, dark fruit with a slight hop finish. Pretty good.

On tap at Pyramid Alehouse in Walnut Creek, CA. Pours a dark brown with a tan head and aroma of fruits, hops, and malt. Taste is of fruits, toasty malt, caramel, and light chocolate with a medium, malty finish.

ACHops (687) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Growler from Beer Junction. Pours medium reddish brown with thin creamy mocha head. Aroma is roasty malts with sweetish fig notes. Taste is big caramel malts followed by equal parts sticky sweetness and earthy bitter hops. Could stand to be a little less watery. Fig and raisin notes as this warms. I wouldn’t call this a double Snow Cap, but close. Definitely richer, bigger, and hoppier. Pretty hard to find too, which of course makes it more appealing.

poisoneddwarf (1711) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Sample on draft. Pours cloudy burgandy with a large beige head that lasts forever; leaves nice lace. Aroma is caramel, raisins, boozy...inviting. Taste is malty sweet but not cloying and a little tart; leaves a somewhat bitter taste in the mouth after swallow. This was really good. I don’t know if it’s because I was on the job and got a free sample--free beer always seems to raise anyone’s spirits--or what, but this seems to be underrated on here. I was very much pleased with it.

From tap dark brown small head. Aroma is malty with floral peachy hops. Flavor has malt with a lot of peachy floral hops which kind of over-powers all else. Not a favorite of mine,prefer regular snowcap

Dark reddish amber in color, clear with a thin head. Big alcohol and malt aroma. Caramel, light chocolate and strong hops flavor. Light pine and a super dry finish. This was terrific strong ale.
