Possibly my new favorite brewery. Had this one previously, thought I'd actually review it this time. Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Labeled as Batch Four, bottled December of 2009.
A - Poured a thick, creamy beige colored three finger head. Lots of lacing around the glass. Head subsided slowly after I took my first sip. Very dark reddish brown; almost mahogany in some areas where the light is able to shine through the glass.
S - Roasted barley and nuts. Sweet at times. Scents of caramel. Dark chocolate is also there.
T - Roasted barely, nuts and coffee are present. The taste of dark chocolate is there, really delicious and this is from someone who doesn't like dark chocolate. It seems to mix well with the other flavors, creating a sort of roasted chocolaty, coffee goodness with a nutty undertone, if that even makes sense by anyone else's logic. It ends with a nice hoppy bitterness that adds to its complexity, rounding out the great flavor.
M - Very smooth and clean, one of the bests I've had in terms of the style. It knows how to stay on the pallet just long enough to keep you wanting more without becoming too present.
D - Definitely something thats great to sip on a chilly Autumn night. The rich, malty flavors made for a real treat, almost warming in fact. The bottle was easily finished. Another great from Pretty Things.

1 PT. 6 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in an imperial nonic pint glass
A - This beer pours dark brown with ruby highlights when held to the light. A semi aggressive pours yields about three inches of tan head.
S - I smell some cocoa, along with earthy, nutty aromas.
T - The taste has those earthy, nutty flavors that make English browns great. With hints of cocoa it is a nice representation of the flavors of this style.
M - Medium towards full.
O - I like the comforting earthy qualities of this beer. While I find it a good example of the style, I still think I would pick a Sam Smith's Nut Brown over this. But, this will definitely slake my thirst of the style.
