Gravitation Ale
First released in January, 2009, Gravitation Belgian Quad is the newest offering in the Smuttynose Big Beer Series.  This big, dark ale is brewed using a variety of Belgian specialty malts along with 200 pounds of raisin puree per batch.  The resulting flavor is a viscous mix of dark fruit, rum, toffee and raisins balanced with aromatic fruitiness of the Belgian yeast.  This beer has a starting gravity of 23 degrees Plato.

Winter Ale
Smuttynose Winter Ale is a full-bodied, amber beer brewed with a special Trappist ale yeast. Stylistically reminiscent of a Belgian Abbey Double, it features fruity aromas and flavor, balanced by soft Crystal hops. Warming, mellow & pleasantly complex, Smuttynose Winter Ale is your perfect cold weather companion.
Available in six-packs and on draft from late October through February.
ABV 5.1%
Pairing Suggestion:
½ Pound Certified Angus Beef Burger with American cheese and Seasoned Fries.

Robust Porter
This hearty, mahogany colored ale is brewed to evoke the dark, full-bodied ales that were a favorite of dockworkers and warehousemen (hence the name “Porter”) in 19th century London. It is a good bet that when Dickens’ Mr. Pickwick sat down for a pint, we would have been drinking an ale much like our Robust Porter.This is a smooth and very drinkable beer, characterized by its well-balanced malt and hops, plus subtle notes of coffee and chocolate.
 “Full-bodied and malty with undertones of coffee and chocolate and a bright, hoppy finish, in style it’s like Cary Grant's accent: the best of British and American.” - The Boston Globe, November, 2005
ABV 5.7%
