Saint Botolph's Town ~ Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project

Appearance: myriad shades of brown under a tan head of fluff and mousse. Lingers with some minute bubbles and lots of cream.

Nose: roasty and nutty with black root skirting along the edges. Chocolate powder and roasted coffee beans. Earth, twigs, and sticks. Toasted almonds.

Palate: toasted and roasted as nose promised. Chocolate bark along the edges with roasted coffee beans rounding out the edges and finish. Chocolate covered roasted almonds. Rustic and earthen – of olden times. Chocolate lasts longest, like fudgy bark and brittle bits.

Final Thoughts: not really all that complex but a pleasant quaffer nonetheless. Brings to mind old Belgian abbeys and cloisters, halls silent with monkish contemplation, while beer brews somewhere nearby.
