Tap at Pacific Coast Brewing. Pours dark ruddy brown with a slight creamy tanhead. Aroma is "xmas spice". Near full body. Seems to have juniper. Mild roast malt.Pretty well balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose of over ripe dark fruit, dark chocolate, toffee, earthy bitterness, and a hint of tang. Muddy dark brown, some foam. Lots of over ripe fruit, chocolate and bitter chocolate. A light roast comes through. Sweetness lingers. A touch of dryness hangs out too. Alcohol is masked nicely.

(draft at brewery). Cloudy sludge of a brew with extremely little head. Zero aroma. Flavor profile certainly sweeter than the standard Snow Cap. Closer to the aged Snow Cap than the current year’s version. Honestly, nothing "super" in my view.
