Peddler Brewing Company // Snow Beer'd Winter Ale // Seattle, WA 8.00% ABV // 52 IBU
Color: Deep brown, almost black. Medium thickness head.
Mouthfeel: Average carbonation but still slightly heavy on the tongue.
Taste: Up front hops! Which is surprising for a dark winter ale, but it helps cut through the heaviness and makes it more refreshing (especially for the amount of rich chocolate follows). Here's a quick diagram to show how the flavor profile goes: Hops-->Espresso-->Chocolate.
Overall: Awesome winter beer! I love stouts and the usual dark ales that have chocolate and coffee flavors, but they can get tiresome throughout the season. Snow Beer'd is the perfect beer for those flavors you want in winter without the post-porter sleep coma.
