Sturdy mahogany color with a head that gushed over the glass and left little trace behind.

Toasty and malty sweet nose with a spritely hop presence. Toffee, molasses, and scorched earth with the flair of floral British hops. Light notes of chocolate and herbs. Smells great.

Bolstered by a strong elixiry malt base, Mischievous carries sweetness past bitter roast and earthy hops with cocoa notes and brown sugar. Still has that English toffee nuance that works well with the rest of the beer pushing drier flavors of grain, toast, and herbal bitterness. Floral hops are boosted, more so, than typical of an English Brown Ale. Tasty.

Low carbonation, but a good bit of body to it. Soft and giving.

A very good beer for the style. Appreciating this very much on a languid Saturday afternoon, over lunch.

Appearance is a chocolate brown with about a finger of head that dissipated quickly. There is a malty and bready nose – exactly what I might expect in a standard brown ale. The flavor is hearty with a mild and slightly sour bitterness on the finish. The light roasted malt character is pleasant and makes for a solid, but not exceptional brown ale.

Had at the blue dog.
Came too me very much looking like a stout. Deepestbrown black with a tall mocha head dense and long lasting with plenty o' lacing.
Aroma was roasted malts fruits caramel sugars. Maybe some hops.
Taste was good. It was full bodied smooth and easy drinking. Lots of roasted goodness in there with hints of fruits and nuts.
My first from helltown and I'm happy to say not my last.
