Smuttynose Winter Ale is a full-bodied, amber beer brewed with a special Trappist ale yeast. Stylistically reminiscent of a Belgian Abbey Double, it features fruity aromas and flavor, balanced by soft Crystal hops. Warming, mellow & pleasantly complex, Smuttynose Winter Ale is your perfect cold weather companion.

Nobody gave this beer a narrative review. Not a good sign. Smuttynose can make good beer, I've had many of them. However, if their winter offering is a 5.83% "Trappist Ale" that nobody will take the time to write anything about, that tells you something. This may be due to Smutty fans not wanting to badmouth their brewery, which is admirable and understandable. However, a belgian dubbel for the cold season at 5.83% was a mistake. They would have been more honest to make a diet cola instead. What a waste of kettle space. Yes, session beers are in, but not for the winter, and certainly not belgian dubs. The caption shows "warming, mellow,pleasantly complex." Yeah, warming. Should have been released as a brown ale, a bad one at that. You have to nail holiday/winter beers. Did you really think that this would stand out, or didn't you care? The Monks are crying tonight. Sorry.
