COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Snowshoe Grizzly Brown Ale is the darkest beer available at the brewery, with a distinct, roasted malt character, dark color and medium hop finish. It pours out a deep brown color with ruby highlights, the head Bunyanesque in size, semi-creamy in texture. The aroma is of lightly toasted grain, caramel, and black walnut sweetness. Grizzly Brown Ale is brewed with five different malts giving it a rich roasted flavor and a smooth finish.

Medium tan head that quickly dissipates, atop a clear dark brown body. Aroma is mild, medium sweet, chocolate, nutty, light caramel, coffee. Taste is medium sweet, cola, light caramel, faint coffee, light astringency. Watery light-medium body.

Very dark brown, very small head, can't find the aroma. Flavor contains a roasted coffee/cocoa, almost stout like character, is a bit too acidic or over roasted. Drinkable I suppose, but frankley needs a re-design.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2004 Believe it or not, brown color with a tan head, whoa. Nothing in the aroma to speak of as well as the taste. Well, I've tried two of their beers and they are both uninspiring. Worth finishing though, so they have that going for them. Worth taking any more of my time to rate this swill? Probably not. Adios.

Toasted coffee bean flavor. Clear amber brown color. No head and poor aroma.

beerguy101 (5278) - Newark, California, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Dark brown color. Medium white foamy head. Aroma is nutty with a touch of caramel and fruit. A medium to lighter bodied brown ale. Malts are nutty and sweet. Hops are mild and slightly spicy. The balance is good, but it really reminds me of every other brown ale out there. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2003
The beer pours out a deep brown color with ruby highlights, the head Bunyanesque in size, semi-creamy in texture, the color a light tan and the lace a fine sealing sheet to hide the glass. The aroma of lightly toasted grain, caramel, and black walnut sweetness pervades the nose, crisp, fresh and delightful this nose, start is quite sweet, rich in malt with the top light to moderate in feel. Finish has a stinging acidity, the hops appetizing in their spiciness, droughty aftertaste that is pleasing to the palate, a nice change of pace and a quaffable brew tis’ true.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAR 10, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2004 Dark ruby red appearance, moderate head formation. Malty, chocolate, fruity red wine aroma. Sweet fruity palate, fairly mild, dry cocoa finish.

Bottle. A nut and malt flavor but somewhat weak.

MrTapeworm99 (13) - Sonora, California, USA - JUL 18, 2002
Sweet roasted malt flavor, kinda syrupy. Goes great with vanilla ice cream. Not much of a head so I give it a 3 just because I think any dark beer looks good in a glass.

Clean and I want more organic feel, deeply roasty, good but a bit over-raosted, very deep in color.
