Horse with a very thick for my head looks like a root beer. Very slight bitter tastes like drinking bock a with a caramel in your mouth.

330ml bottle into pint. Sweet sweet caramel nose, like a hundred English desserts. Beautiful clear bronze/brown colour with cream head. Very fine carbonation. Clean crisp mouthfeel. Finish is burnt butter and pudding and sugar and magnificence. A gimmick beer but SO MUCH FUN!.

OK I know my rating won’t be popular with ratebeerians, but I like this one. Good sweet toffee flavor and nice smooth body.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Clear deep copper colour with a small one finger tan head. Aroma is very sweet with the toffee, some typical malt there as well. The aroma belies the flavour a bit in that the toffee notes are a lot more subtle, you get more malt, caramel flavours, maybe a bit of dark fruit too - the sort of stuff you’d associate with a typical bitter. Sticky and creamy but watered down mouthfeel. It is very sweet for the style, there’s a slight bitterness at the end but the sweetness overrides it, especially as you drink more of it. I liked it but not enough to buy it again.

Interesting and not overly sweet. Good aroma. Nice color. The toffee flavor is subtle but goes well (ish) with the ale.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Very sweet caramel/toffee nose, maybe some light spice, too. Deep reddish/brown color, 1-cm. tan head. Thick caramel initial flavor, sticky indeed, with some graham cracker, small dark fruit note, and minimal bittering. Thin-medium body (not sticky). Interesting aroma, fun at first, but gets annoying later. Flavors are a bit artificial and cloying A one-time thing. Not really a dessert beer -- but rather a beer dessert.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Small yellow head, rather dense over deep copper to chestnut beer. Toffee, caramelsyrup, treacle. Very sweet nose indeed, as toffees melted down. Taste is way less sweet - thankfully. Again the flavour of toffee, but without the excessive sweetness. Unfortunately, this seems to be achieved by diluting - watering down, let’s not have fear of words - the beer into homeopathic solutionmeasures. Utterly thin, and not very carbonated neither. Substandard.

The initial scent is pleasant, but the taste quickly outstays its welcome. Burnt, rather than toasted, flavours. Not terrible but wouldn’t drink again in a hurry.
