The beer comes in a dark brown color with a big tan head.

The aroma has a huge punch of bittersweet chocolate as well as roasty malt, bready sweetness, caramel, toffee, some nuttiness.

The flavor follows with again a good amount of sweet chocolate, some caramel and toffee notes. There's a good amount of sticky sweetness, but then it cleans up on this drying bitterness. The strong earthy hops on the end really clean up the beer well.

Easily one of the best brown ales I've had. Definitely the best example of the beer I've had.

A: Pours a deep ruby/mahogany color with 2 fingers of light brown head that fades to a thin cap after a few minutes

S: Very malt-forward with a hint of sweetness and a good bit of caramel and nuttiness

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a light sweetness and works its way through a light roastiness, some caramel and finally the nuttiness come through for the finish. Almost no hop presence

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and almost creamy

O: A very nice English brown ale. Not the most complex, but that's not what most English or English-style ales are. Very easy to drink and quite quaffable. Pretty Things also never disappoints with their price point. Recommended if you're into the style
