New Belgium Snow Day Winter ale: At a work social function there was a good selection of bottled beer for the sampling. I chose a New Belgium Snow Day, looking forward to something new. And it was an entirely different experience. I did not expect the nearly black color and thin off white head. This beer has the look of a black ale, rather than that of a winter warmer. Great aromas come off of this brew, lots of malty sweet smell and a big dose of coffee. Was it the look that made me smell the coffee? A roasty malt flavor greets you on the first sip, and there is some subtle bitterness to the finish. The Snow Day has a big body to it. Very good special or dessert beer, you will not down a six of these in an evening.
