Way better than I expected.

Schell’s Snow Storm reminds me of a milkshake stout, but lighter, less creamy, and less sweet. Still a little sweet, though. I generally like my beer dark, heavy, and sweet. This is tasty enough but also light enough that I could drink a lot of this. With every sip I waited for a sour aftertaste, but I never got it. This ain’t no sippin’ beer.

I’m glad I didn’t read the label first, because while I like the beer, it’s not nearly as tasty as the label makes it sound – “complex malt flavor, with hints of raisins, dark fruit and rum.” What the heck is “dark fruit”?

I used to say I was a beer snob, but I'm actually just picky. I learned very little from my short homebrewing stint so while I know what I like and what I don't when I taste it, I couldn't tell you what hops or malt has to do with any of that. You can also find me at Metroblogging Minneapolis.

  1. dark fruit is basically anything not citrus-y or melon-y. Dark fruits include grapes (and rasisin, dates, etc), berries, cherries, etc.
