look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Chilled 12 oz. bottle into a 12 oz tulip. Best before date 4.29.13

Look- Deep brown, finger and a half of dense off-white head, excellent retention, good lacing.

Smell- Nondescript, nutty, raisin. Mild but pleasant

Taste- Brown bread, light treacle, nutty, graham cracker, ginger. Light stone fruit, red delicious apple. As it warms, it takes on a rounder, toastier flavor that suits it nicely.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, light-medium carbonation. Smooth, juicy feel.

Overall- Does what it's aming to do and I'd certainly buy it again; not something I'd pick up all the time, but as a Winter seasonal it's a solid offering.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

12oz. bottle poured into a tumbler glass.

A- a very cloudy amber with a thin light tan head.

S- yeasty fruity esters, with some light candy sugar sweetness.

T- Certainly a belgian yeast here. Some yeasty funk, very light fruitiness, and sweetness.

M- light to medium, light but fizzy carbonation. A metallic dryness on the end.

O- Okay, but nothing special. Smutty certainly does better beers.

Creamy , warm, smooth with a suttle kick. Im thinking the ABV is a little over 6%. Went in for the OMB Dunkel , and after some prodding by the sales rep, i came out with the Smutty Winter. !st one straight from the bottle. Second one i poured , jus to get a better look, good aroma and nice red head. Really has body and hugs the glass. After #3 i had to rest my eyes
