This is my first beer review (yay, right?)
My friend brought over a bunch of beers in big bottles and insisted that I had to like at least one or he'd be heartbroken. So, I loved this label! So cute! And so I had to try it.
It was lovely, poured lovely, smelled lovely and tasted lovely. Like the best toffee custard and toasted biscotti in a bottle and it was so very smooth.
Loved it! More Pretty Things please!
Best thing? My friend smiled and I think he's planning on bringing me more beer.

This beer poured a thick mahogany body with a nice size off-white head.

Nose isn't crazy in your face, but has a nice caramel and grain sort of smell.

Body is extremely thick and full bodied with an immediate big chewy, very fresh grain and caramel malt taste. Wow, really hits you with this big syrupy sweet caramel and almost a buttery toffee sort of flavor. You can really taste how big this beer is right off the bat. Very warm alcohol, but doesn't feel boozy at all. It sits very nicely against the malt. Big big big malt base. Hops are not overly present, and almost have a grassy English sort of hop flavor and it really feels more like a traditional English type Barleywine than a big hoppy American version, but it no where as muted as some English versions. Bitterness is also very small, although it feels extremely well balanced and at no point does the malt ever feel like it's overpowering. Ends with a nice lingering mild bitterness.

This may be one the best big malt monsters I've had in a while. Absolutely perfect for sitting around the fire on a cold winters night. This is a sipper for sure. Great beer!

Pours a deep amber copper colour with a light brown 2 inch head that sticks around for quite awhile. As the beer goes down the lace sticks to the side of the glass.

The aroma is filled with malty goodness and is light on the hops. Raisin, cinnamon and figs comprise most of the aroma and a hint of the warm alcohol to come.

The taste is wonderful as the hops lay down a nice layer of pine and citrus that balances out the malt flavor. The heat from the alcohol is not overwhelming even though it does makes its presence known. The piney hops actually do begin to linger on the tastebuds as the beer goes down.

This is one heck of a beer that is really balanced and warms the core on a cold winter night.
