Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

One of the best winter ales I've tried in a long time. Smooth mellow taste, very drinkable, no weird flavors like many winter ales these days. The only problem is it is disappearing fast along with the winter but this beer could work all year long. I hope they can repeat.

Pours a dark ruby, with a nice sudsy head of off-white bubbles. Lovely lattice-like lacing.

Nose is caramel malts, with a hint of fruit and some light spice. Subtle and pleasing to the olfactory unit.

Taste is pleasant as well, and complex to boot. I get some fruity malts and yeasts that collide with cinnamon and nutmeg touches. This is an easy to enjoy ale that works perfectly on a wintry, snowy morning! Prost!
