Union Craft Brewing Snow Pants
Union Craft Brewing Snow Pants is an Oatmeal Stout, 8% ABV, canned on 11/23/16, opened on 01/01/17.
This pours with a dark chocolate brown color and has a good looking tan head that settles several minutes later. A typical but extremely pleasant aroma for the style, chocolate and mildly roasted malts, some sweet vanilla, a faint hint of coffee and a little earthy hop are all evident on the nose. Bittersweet chocolate dominates the taste, but there are some more subtle notes of cooked oatmeal and toasted marshmallows lingering in the background. The finish is a touch astringent and has an odd bitterness that mixes with little bite of alcohol; both increase as the beer warms. Earthy with a little bit of coffee in the aftertaste. The mouth-feel is nice and creamy with that little bit of extra heft you expect in an Oatmeal Stout.
There is a lot to like about this beer, I’d say it’s worth a shot if you like a solid dark brew.
