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

Warming, mellow & pleasantly complex, Smuttynose Winter Ale is your perfect cold weather companion.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2007 bottle. Slightly hazy orange/copper with a medium head. Aroma of yeast, pears, oranges and spice. Tastes sweet with brown sugar, ripe fruit and citrus. Medium body. Leaves a tang at the finish.

waveman352 (178) - Saratoga Springs, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2006
12 oz. bottle 11/13/06. Pours a dark cloudy orange color with a sweet malty, fruity nose. Thin tan head that quickly diminishes. Spicy flavors, reminds me of a more fruit and flavor filled spice beer like that of anchor christmas. Hints of citrus, possibly lemon with a hint of alcohol to finish off the taste. Quite frankly a very weak unimpressive palate to end a real solid beer. Flavors are pretty weak when you let it sit in your mouth and after taste is not there. Other than the ending a pretty impressive brew in my opinion.

tastes rich with a roasted chocolaty malt, a little hoppy for added sexiness, a bit spiced, just some how not put together well

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Pours murky amber/brown with a small tan head. Aroma has notes of dark fruit, yeast, mild hops, spice, and sweet malts. Flavor is very similar to the aroma, but with a little more bitterness than expected. Palate is medium, a bit oily, slightly bitter, and some mild spice. Not the best Abbey I’ve had, and a little unbalanced, but still fairly pleasant.

I had this after a weyerbacher prophecy and the transition was not smooth. in the end this come out to be a pretty nice tasting beer. Surprisingly hoppy. smoky and sweet. A tasty little dubbel.
