500ml bottle: BBD 7th Apr 2015 drank at home for ’pudding’ on 15th Sep 2014. This worked, the Brentwood brewed ’Chockwork Orange’ I had with it did not. I really liked the sweetness of this caramel and toffee flavoured beer it really does remind you of the dessert it is named in honour of. Rich, smooth and almost sickly, but my sweet tooth lapped it up.

11.2 oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Date on bottle reads 22/03/15. Clear dark red brown color. Thin khaki head. Some short ropes of lace. Pretty awesome toffee pudding nose, and flavor. Some toastiness. Moderate sweet taste. Light to moderate bitter. Not bad. Pretty fun, enjoyable stuff. Like the Banana Bread beer, this delivers on bringing that unique, specific flavor. ESB was a nice choice for the base... Not as sweet as expected, a nice bitter balance to the taste. Artificial-tasting flavoring, but it’s a pretty enjoyable flavor at the moment. A little more body would have been nice, though.

mansquito (5031) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 13, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC 11.2 ounce: Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sugar, toffee, and caramel. Taste is not quite as sweet and sticky as the aroma, but still is rather much on the sweet side. Body is light than expected. More drinkable than expected as well. I don’t think I would want to have more than one in any case.

I thought this was a good beer. Caramel, toffee, chocolate flavors. This beer did not feel too synthetic. Smooth and malty.

stevoj (3701) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Beautiful sweet, sticky, dessert aroma, but doesn’t live up to the expectations of the nose. Pours a clear dark brown with a ring of airy head, taste is sweet but flat, with some burnt sugar flavor. Finishes fast, mild sticky coating on the tongue.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6457) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with a large foamy tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was very strong vanilla cream, toffee and was very sweet. The flavor was strong vanilla cream, toffee and artificial vanilla. long finish. Medium body. Reminded me of vanilla cream soda.

11.2 oz bottle- Pours dark ruby red to brown with a small off white head that reduces to a collar. Aroma is minerals, like in a Sam Smith kind of way, vanilla, toffee, better than expected. The taste is strong vanilla and caramel, toffee, it tastes like a piece of candy, like a hard chewy caramel chunk, medium dry finish, some hops. I think this beer is underrated actually, i liked this more than i was expecting, dessert in a glass.
