2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured as taster at regular Friday tasting. Smell and taste are very similar. It is sweet and does taste like toffee, so if you want a dessert beer, this would work. As that, it is fine, but I prefer Southern Tier’s Creme Brûlée.

Oh, this beer is hard to stomach. I like their Banana Nut Brown, but this is a fake saccharine mess. Toffee flavor is their, but with a bad aftertaste. The sugars are just too much to deal with. It’s like a bad homebrew all liquid extract batch gone wrong.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle into English pint. Pours a dark brown/garnet red with sparse head. Nose of vanilla, butterscotch, with a flavour kind of close to a bland cream soda. Light bodied, some carbonation. Not as horrifying as I feared, but once is enough.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark brown, ruby tints. Butterscotch and alcohol aroma. The taste falls short of the aroma big time. Bland and thin with a hint of butterscotch on the finish. The mouthfeel seriously lacks body. This one is not what I was expecting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: opaque brown color, little head poured from bottle at bat, slight lacing on glass
Aroma: sweet candy toffee caramel
Taste: tasted like a liquefied toffee candy, caramel flavor at end not much flavor at beginning
Palette: slight bitter at end, light
Overall: this is not as flavorful or what I expected, kind of a weird flavor for beer

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear brown color with light tan head. Toffee and pudding notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some light sweetness and a little bitterness. A nice balance between the two.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Schöner feinporiger Schaum auf nussbaumfarbenem Bier. Dann wird es komplex, Schokolade, Karamel, Kakao, Nougat, ein Hauch Zimt. Im Antrunk dann etwas dezenter, erst im Abgang öffnen sich lang anhaltende Aromen von Schokolade und Kakao. Tolles Bier, prima Nachspeise.)

Bottle in fl. Extremely sweet aroma. Tastes like a piece of toffee candy. Over the top. Easy to drink but simply too much.
