4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Mini-growler from the 16th St Albertsons... Pours chestnut brown with a nice khaki head.. Dry dark toast and nice cocoa essence.. hints of fruity dark cherries are in the background.. Good medium/light thick body.. Good bubble.. Light hints of EtOH.. Textbook piney hops with well rounded maltiness for a PNW Winter Warmer.
Is this really the "super" version? It is remarkably similar to the standard bottle version that I buy a couple every year.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

Figs cinnamon and brown sugar are dominating. A little caramel to round things out. It's an average beer. Somehow I remember this being so much better as a small batch from
