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.

joeneugs (3324) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 28, 2010
On tap at Petes brass rail. It pours a muddy red/brown color with an orange/ brown head. The aroma is very fruity with hints of plums, raisins, and peaches. The flavor is rich and malty with sweet peaches, prunes, caramel, and a little bit of a spicy finish. Mild bitterness. Kind of simple for a barleywine.

marcus (6578) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 14, 2010
On tap at Pacific Coast Brewing. Pours dark brown with a thin beige head and a sour spicy aroma. There is a thick chocolate and treacle flavor with some kind of spice. Very dry finish.

bhensonb (11234) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 14, 2010
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.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2010
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.
