Smuttynose Brewing makes some really nice beers, but their Winter Ale isn’t one of my favorites. It’s chocolately, fruity, and sweet from the scent to the flavor, and through to the finish. Cloyingly sweet, to my palate. It’s a medium bodied beer, and if your taste runs to the sweet, by all means give it a try, but it’s a bit much for me.
I give it a 3.4 out of 5.
