In this winter beer blog, we are going to get into the winter seasonal, which is Snow Daze, from Rochester Mills. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Michigan craft brewery. Let us get into this beer.
It has a dark amber to brown color with a nice white color. The smell has a malty to alcohol notes. The taste has a sweet malty to alcohol notes with a heavy alcohol aftertaste. The aftertaste has a nice burn down the throat but it is slight. It is pretty drinkable for the beer style and it will get some craft beer drinkers in trouble.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, this beer has a ton going on in it. There is some nice complex notes that will keep the beer drinker sipping it until he or she figures it out. This is a great beer and I love the alcohol notes. It gives something different with the nice sweet malty notes. This beer does not taste like 10.2% beer. It is drinks like a 5% brew. There is some nice malty notes that will get the malt head going crazy over this beer. I do not see anyone drinking more than one. This is a beer that you have one and have to move onto to another one. I highly recommend this beer. Draft only for this year but next year it will be in draft and package in 2015. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
