Translucent dark brown with hardly no visual carbonation with a fast dissolving thin white head. Aroma of toffee and some vanilla. Medium body with some noticeable hop bitterness. The commercial description is lacking so I guess they used artificial extracts to get the aroma since malted grain canít produce anything like this. Sticky sweet filling finish.

This is great tasting! I was worried they wouldnít get the Toffee taste right, but they did. Definitely would recommend it.

Aroma is very pleasant and sweet, but the aftertaste leaves you a sour taste, that does not quite live up to the sweet expectation.

Wow really different. Burnt sweet caramel everywhere. Pour is really dark black ruby. A bit too sweet at times, but absolutely tastes like a sticky bun. Creamy, toffee, caramel. A good dessert beer. Never had anything like this before!

Bricktop86 (604) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Pours dark red with a tan head. Aroma is sweet butter toffee. Tastes like cream soda and toffee candy. On the verge of being too sweet

Sizzler80 (501) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 29, 2014
Nut brown pour with a thin beige head. Strong aromas of vanilla, toffee, nut, slight bread. This was initially very nice, however as soon as it warms up a to approx room temp, it becomes ever so slightly sickly sweet. I guess the moral of the story would be to drink it cold. Probably not best served in a pint glass.

gopherfan99 (766) - CROATIA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle, pours a chestnut brown with a beige head, the toffee aroma is noticeable but not over powering, sweet taste of toffee and vanilla, has a bit of a nutty finish to it, pretty good but I donít think I could have more than one at a time

Maris (1103) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2014
From a 500ml bottle 0n 27/4/2014. Pours a clear dark amber with quite a big light brown head. Has a strong and quite pleasant aroma of toffee and vanilla. The flavour is primarily, toffee caramel and vanilla, with the vanilla being even more pronounced in the mouth. Itís sweet but is quite well balanced by a sharp, tangy bitterness. The body is a touch thin and the carbonation lively. A little bit uneven but pretty good none the less.
