COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This delicately balanced Strong Ale starts with dark copper color mixed with slight reddish hues and a light tan head. Big malty aroma with a Munich character give way to a slight caramel & toffee mixed with spicy noble hop aroma, all wrapped together with a medium-bodied mouth feel. German malt flavor profile with slight roasty notes give Pray for Snow a subtle toffee sweetness balanced with spicy hop bitterness and slight alcohol warming. Served appropriately in a classic snifter.

seymour (1924) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Shared at the Poles bonfire party, thanks David! Malty, burnt toast, plum and raisin notes. Nice roasty grain bitterness, fairly harsh hops, but thankfully not severely bitter. Medium body, strong carbonation, mushy mouthfeel, not-so-harmonious aftertaste. 7% alcohol wasnt well-concealed, a bit too fusely. Overall, not great.

Very nice deep copper pour. Aroma is sweet caramel and a little herbal hops. Malts dominate taste profile with some dates, caramel, hint of toffee, and some citrus. Medium creamy mouthfeel with some spice notes on aftertaste.

This has a winter warmer feel to it. A bit of spice with some malt sweetness, toffee maybe.

Pint at Dram and Draught Raleigh. Good aroma, sweet. Roasty hoppy. Chocolate, caramel, mild grapefruit. Clean orangy brown color, ok head and lace. Moderate sweet and bitter flavor. Medium body oily creamy mouthfeel sweet bitter finish. Huh. Makes some think of a less exciting Arrogant Bastard i

onceblind (7883) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Clear copper/dark amber under a thin off tan head. Rich dark plummy malts and biscuity tones fill the nose with a hint of raisin and earthy herbal bitterness. Full biscuity toast and plummy raisin flavor thats gently herbal and gently bitter with a semisweet candi sugar finish but its so biscuity and piney and herbal that its all thrown askew. Just kinda okay. Like a "winter" black IPA.

crossovert (11608) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2016
Draft. They have succeeded in making a pretty nondescript stong beer here. It has everything youd expect, booze, malt, caramel, slight herbs. Nothing stands out....

Solid winter concoction. Great maltiness balanced with a good hip kick. There's also a little spiciness that lends to a nice complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
