Smuttynose Winter Ale is a full-bodied, amber beer brewed with a special Trappist ale yeast.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Dark amber with a thin, but lasting head.

Surprisingly creamy, but still carbonated/effervescent.

Slightly sweet and lightly spiced in the holiday sort of way, namely nutmeg. Grows in complexity as it warms, including a grape/raisin layer similar to Raison d’ Etre, probably attributable to the Belgian yeast. Well balanced with cool light hop presence. Smooth and very drinkable.

A good solid representation of the holiday/winter ale class, but not mind-blowing.

this beer has a great brown color. the smell is malty with some wafts of caramel and vanilla. the taste is bitter and there is almost a blackened quality. there is a slight sweetness there but not much as the smell promises. i havnt had many beers from smutty nose, but this isnt bad at all and i may be inclined to buy some other of their beers.
