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.

riversideAK (6160) - 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.

joeneugs (5814) - 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.

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.

stevoj (4015) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Growler rom Albertsons. Dark brown pour with nice medium fluffy head. Heads lasts and leaves curtains of lacing. Aroma is dark malt, nuts and bit of prunes. Taste brings more malt, with the bitterness coming from the roast, not the hops. The malt masks the ABV well, not even catching any warmth. Smooth and silky with a small bite.

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.
