3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black pour with thin tan head. Roasted malt aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste similar to nose, coffee with some chocolate. Rather sweet overall. Quite thin mouthfeel. Ok, but nothing extra.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Pours pretty damn black with a thin foamy tan head. Nose is medium roast with some light char. A light milky/caramel/hazelnut note too. Touch of coffee. Hmm...better than I had expected. Taste falls a bit flat. Itís got a mineral dryness to it, with light roast and chocolate notes. Coffee comes on strong in the finish along with some sweet honey notes. But thatís the only flavor that has any boldness to it at all. I get that this isnít supposed to in-your-face, but this is dialed back a bit too much. Mouthfeel is milkshake-thick, but the carbonation bites a little too much--otherwise thatíd be a 5. Pretty decent beer, but this could have been great with a couple tweaks.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
poured a very dark brown, with a light brown head. Not much to the aroma, tastes a bit like black licorice and has a very light mouthfeel. Not the best stout I have had... but its ok.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle pours an opaque black with a very small tan head and no lacing. Aroma is roasted malt with a bit of coffee and caramel. Slightly bitter taste with a slick texture and warm lingering finish. Made for Minnesota winters. One of my favorites from Schellís (with a very different label than shown here, and no mention of Snow Storm). I consider this more like a porter than a sweet stout.

Appearance: Extremely dark, opaque brown with thin tan head.
