look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Look: Pours a viscous, deep brown that is quite close to opaque. A respectable amount of head for a 12% beer.

Smell: A barrage of tootsie roll type chocolate, slightly roasted malts, and creme brulee. Invites the drinker with hardly any hint of alcohol.

Taste: A crisp, relieving taste that is deceivingly light. Notes of chocolate still prevail, as well as toasted caramel and amaretto. Brief hints of coffee sneak into the aftertaste.

Feel: A delightful, fizzy body reminiscent of cream soda or root beer. Thick and sugary without burgeoning upon syrupy.

Overall: My favorite offering from Pretty Things. Trumps Baby Tree Quad, Field Mouse Farewell, and Barbapapa. An all-star offering for sure.

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!
