11.2 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours dark brown, clear, small off white head that left a couple of spots of lacing. Aroma is definitely toffee and some malts. Flavor is malts, caramel, some vanilla maybe, and a touch of bitterness towards the end. Not bad, drinkable and enjoyable.

Tessic (1041) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2014
This ale poured a nice dark amber colour with a nice tan coloured, frothy head. Scents include caramel, butterscotch, rum and butter, wine, just to name a few. First swig was expectingly sweet but it wasn't as syrupy as thought. Flavors of coffee, rum and caramel with a little bitter aftertaste. Rum flavours on the palate.

Another very unique and tasty beer from the makers of the Banana Bread Beer. Pours a a deep reddish brown with a grey head. Smells incredible, toffee and vanilla and nutmeg. Creamier taste then the banana, but maybe not quite as consistent. Upfront there isn't much to it, All the taste comes in at the finish, mostly toffee and pudding, with spices and exact toffee aftertaste. Had in the bottle.

Ericular (965) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Pours a nice deep amber brown with lasting beige head and decent lacing. Aroma is buttery toffee and lots of butterscotch. Pretty fitting, but gets a bit tiresome by the end. Taste is a watered down version of the aroma, with a fleeting, watery toffee taste. Middle is vacant, and the palate is watery with a toffee malt aftertaste.

SamP01 (658) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Pours a dark ruby brownish clear. with a medium beige head, light lacing. A pleasant aroma of toffee pudding, butterscotch and caramel fill the senses. The aroma carries over to the taste with a flavorful sweet toffee, butterscotch upfront that slowly mellows out on the end with some caramel malt and mild bitter notes for balance on the end. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation, some stickiness on the lips. The finish same as taste with some lingering toffee and butterscotch flavor. This is a good flavorful brew that actually follows thru with its namesake. Overall a tasty and enjoyable brew

Transfer from BA review on 4-14-14- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours dark brown color with huge billowy tan colored foam of a head. The head has a decent level of retention fading over time to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is massive of sweet sugary smells. The sweet are mainly of a toffee and caramel nature as may have been expected from the name. Other sweet smells are there as well however with a milk chocolate, light vanilla, and moderately strong maple syrup smell all that as well. A bready and lighter roasted malt smell mixes with the rest to produce an almost toffee-griddle cake like smell on this one. It is quite inviting overall. Taste – The taste begins with a somewhat watery roasted malt and sweeter toffee flavor. These two flavors create a base for the brew remaining relatively constant throughout the taste. A lighter vanilla and maple syrup flavor join the taste more toward the middle to the end of the flavor profile. A light level of an earthy and grassy hop come to the tongue at the very end of the taste, leaving a watery and sweeter maple-toffee flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thin and watery with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. A higher carbonation would have matched well all the sweet flavors and lower abv. of the brew, all while a thicker body would have given it more of a “pudding” like taste. Overall the feel was a bit disappointing in light of a brew that is mimicking a dessert. Overall – Nothing too fantastic here. Sweet and sugary, but way too weak overall in body and feel. Not really one I would likely go to again unless on nitro, which I think may really fit this beer rather nicely.

12oz brown bottle from Cost Plus World Market. "Rich sticky toffy-ness" is right! The gimmick works, but it’s kinda a "one and done" for me. Not a delicious, easy-drinking beer in its own right. Opaque dark reddish brown colour, persistent beige foam and lace. Intense caramel sweetness, reminiscent of root beer soda and of course actual sticky toffee pudding. Aroma much better than the taste. Lots of residual sweetness but lighter than expected body, strong carbonation, acidic bite. In the same vein as Southern Tier Crème Brûlée stout, but not nearly as well-crafted. I get what they’re doing here, but still didn’t care to finish the whole bottle.
