from a bottle nice and dark. smells like metallic toffee candy fer sure. taste is toffee like with some bitterness. not sure how this overall, not really sticky, but a tad cloying. could not drink much of these. some slight creamy carbonation. again, not sure what to think of this, its a little messy in attitude. hides alky but somehow a little too strong for my taste. how can this be a bitter? yes, quite odd overall. not impressed. never tasted a bitter like this, probably should be styles a spice veggie beer.

Doesn't hold a candle to the Bananna Bread by Wells! Definitely can taste the toffee, but my amateur palate couldn't pick up on much more! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great session beer. Not much of an aroma, the pour was a nice clear medium brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was pretty weak up front but there was a nice toffee backbone that came out mid swallow and followed through to the finish. The pudding flavor came out more as it warmed. Nothing exciting but a solid all day beer and delicious for an ESB. Nice strong carbonation which I’m sure the Brits don’t like

The aroma hits you first then the first sip is very sweet. But after that it balances out quite nicely. The toffee is there but does not over power.

Astringent hops at first, followed by very pleasant notes of toffee and butterscotch. A transparent brown ale? I’d say it’s a red/amber in appearance. Solid head and good retention, minimal lacing. The sole thing keeping this from being a drainpour is a nice taste. Not sickly sweet and not bitter, with an enjoyable toffee and butterscotch flavor. A ridiculously thin beer, with a name like "sticky, toffee pudding" you expect an smooth solid mouthfeel. Also, there is a very strange out of place dryness. A decent beer. I wouldn’t recommend towards it, but wouldn’t try hard to dissuade someone from it.

Cybercat (3516) - Georgia, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Pours a dark, translucent chestnut with a fairly thick and somewhat persistent light tan head. Caramel and toffee dominate the aroma, but let through a hint of malt - a little cloying, more like a candy bar than a beer. Flavor is again heavy on the caramel and toffee, but not as sweet as the aroma; more roast malt gets through, as well as some hops and a hint of hay. Texture is smooth, viscous and somewhat fizzy. Finish is a bit on the sweet side, but not off-putting. Makes a good dessert beer. Have it instead of a transfat-laden cake or banana split!

Lagerboy (1335) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
500 ml bottle. Clear deep auburn copper, tan foam settles quick and fades. Toasty sweet toffee malty aroma and taste, caramel, vanilla and burnt sugar. Soft carbonation, medium body, low hopped. Below average novelty dessert beer. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Dark copper/light brown color. Aroma of vanilla and creamy caramel. Huge sweet caramel flavor upon first sip. Middle is moderately bitter, body is slightly creamy medium. Low to moderate carbonation. Finish has big vanilla and caramel/toffee as well in the final breath. This brew is pretty nicely balanced and not nearly as sweet or syrupy like I was expecting. Just a solid low alc Sessionable brew.
