Poured into a pint glass. A very dark brown with a thin head. Looks beautiful. Smell is nutty with hints of malt. Taste is same but I feel the alcohol burn. Not easy to drink. A sipping beer that improves as it warms.

Light brown and appears to be clear. Moderate beige head which leaves a ring of lace after each sip.

First, I smell rusting iron then I get light cream. Some darker malt elements in the background.

Quite dry to start, this is probably closer to a highly hopped brown ale. The malt has a darker caramelized crystal malt and perhaps some chocolate malt as well. The finish comes across a bit watery with the hop bite kicking in.

It pours brilliant chestnut brown with ruby highlights. Streams of slowly rising bubbles support a 1" cream to light tan foam cap with moderate retention. The nose features an interplay between rich malt aromas that evoke dark fruits and a moist fruit cake and spicy herbal hop aromas. Malt and hop aromas are medium and fermentation aromas are medium to medium low. Pray for Snow has a very creamy texture and rolls across the tongue bringing traces of chocolate, figs, pear, grains, and nuts seasoned with spicy, floral, earthy, citrusy hop flavors. This is a subtle beer with medium to medium low hop flavors, medium medium to medium high malt flavors and medium low bitterness. Pray for Snow has medium low, very soft carbonation and a body just shy of medium. It is a good beer but for a winter ale, I prefer a little less subtlety.

Poured from the tap into a 20 OZ mug at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a dark brown amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is heavy malt with some biscuit and caramel thrown in for good measure. The taste is similar to the nose and has a nice sweet malt taste with some noticeable alcohol. An Outstanding beer
