Union Craft Snow Pants
Deep dark reddish-brown beer with a medium foamy beige head that lasts a while. Nose of Mexican chocolate, medium sweet coffee, and vanilla. Flavor is balanced between sweet and bitter with cocoa, vanilla, and mocha followed quickly by charred brown bread and smoke. The after-taste retains more of the bitterness which lasts quite some time. Solid oatmeal stout.

Opaque black with a medium tan head. Oatmeal nose with some sweet chocolate notes...fresh. Cardboard and chocolate, overwhelming bittering hops. Too bitter for the style. Creamy head, but strong carbonation. The bitterness lingers. Not a favorite.
