New Belgium Snow Day Winter Ale


It’s supposed to be 27 degrees here tonight (Fahrenheit) which means it’s time to start reviewing the winter seasonals.  Snow Day Winter Ale from New Belgium brewing is a black ale that’s custom made for a cold night.  It’s got a roasty nose, a full body, and you can taste the roasted malt in the middle with a healthy dose of bitter piney hops to balance it.   It’s a hoppier beer than I expected. It’s got a creamy smooth and somewhat bitter finish.   If you’re a fan of hop-heavy beers, this is a good one to use to welcome the first days of winter.

I give it a 4.2 out of 5.
