Smuttynose’s Winter Ale to be precise. It’s getting cold, my wife’s already done with her Christmas shopping (!), and that last bottle of Pumking’s not going anywhere until Christmas dessert, so time to check out a few winter ales. It’s got a nice smokiness to it to go along with some spices and maybe caramel or molasses. I think I’m picking up some fruit in there too like raisins or plum. Not much head to speak of. Solid, but I think the flavors that are here could all be a bit stronger. There’s not much of a finish on this beer either.
