New Belgium Snow Day Winter Ale

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.
