3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
It is what it is, and that’s a sticky toffee flavored beer. It’s toasty, very sweet, a lot of vanilla, and despite the low ABV, I’d call it a desert beer worth trying. Categorizing it as an ESB is downright weird because it’snot traditional in any sense. My wife loves it for what that’s worth, and it seems to go well with peanut butter..or so I was told.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Copper pour with a medium, foamy tan head. Lots of toffee in the nose. Smells like dessert. Very appealing aroma. Taste is toffee, malt notes, faint caramel, chalky dried dairy-like notes, floral notes and tea leaves. Body is light-medium and has a chalky feel amidst a light carbonation feel. Ends with more toffee, soft caramel, sweet malt notes, floral notes and light candy notes.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Color is nice and dark, inviting. Aroma is crazy sweetness, with burnt sugar, butterscotch, and caramel all working together nicely. The taste is where this falls short. Much like previous reviews, the taste doesn’t match the richness of the aroma. It’s actually kind of tangy, with a metallic note and even some faint hoppy bitterness in the finish. Thin. As it warms it mellows a little bit, but overall falls short of what it could have been. They needed to dial up the sweetness in this way higher.

Pours deep clear brown with a small beige head. Smells of cola, toffee, and sugar. Tastes of cola, coffee, toffee, and black tea. Interesting.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured red-brown, clear with a small tan head that mostly went. Well, yep, aroma is very sweet sticky toffee maybe with a touch of vanilla. Was expecting horrid sweetness but taste is more ale-like and touch drier than expected, bit bready. Bit thin and watery on the palate, soft carbonation, but with a moderate finish.

500ml bottle. Pours dark brown with medium beige head. Intense aroma of toffee, caramel and vanilla. The taste is similar but less intensive, very sweet, full of toffee and caramel. Watery mouthfeel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared at the Foothills Sexual Chocolate pre-release party. Dark copper pour. Aroma has plenty of toffee sweetness with slight burnt sugar. Sticky sweet of toffee, as advertised. More successful than their banana bread beer.
