AntonyWilson (114) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 6, 2016
500ml bottle: Pours a dark amber with red highlights. A persistent, creamy tan head. Aromas of vanilla and some fruit. Also some caramel as well. Tastes of caramel, slight coffee and vanilla. Bitterness is good. Not overly sweet, as one would expect. Medium body with a medium carbonation. Dryish finish. Overall an interesting ale.

Dark golden or caramel creamy head good retention. I really dig the unique characters in the aromas. Reminds me of cream soda with extra toffee. The flavors are like a light toffee candy but less sweet. Very over the top toffeeish. Kinda has an espresso thing in there to. Medium bodied light to medium sweet. Taste a little artificial.

dlihcsnatas (607) - Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Dirty dark amber brew with small head. Smells very toffee and wonderful but the specs all floating about in the brew just takes away from me wanting to drink it. Beginning to wonder if this bottle is old. Finally took a drink and it tastes of toffee as expected with some hints of vanilla. Would put a higher score on taste but the looking at the specs of whatever in the brew has just put my taste buds in auto dislike. Could be a very enjoyable brew if not for the crud floating around in it. Thought after glass had sat on counter for some time the trash would settle but nope it seems to be suspended just where it is forever.

HenrikSoegaard (13087) - Randers, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark red amber colour. Moderate malty and hoppy and spicey aroma. Light sweet and moderate bitter flavor. Pudding-notes? Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate. Strange but I like it.

Bottle. Sweet aroma. Prominent sweet toffee flavor. Overall, innocuous ale with no off-flavors, but not a standout beer. Drinkable, but lots of other more flavorful options are available.

harrisoni (17162) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle at Firkin Ale House Folkestone, Clear mahogany colour lasting beige head. Toffee on aroma no doubt. Flavour doesn’t live up to the aroma. Pasteurised and dead fizzy toffee. Good aroma then fades.

ManVsBeer (8494) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle from ASDA, Queensferry. Copper brown with a very thin head. Rich in both its aroma and taste with its toffee, it’s a winter warmer with a surprisingly easy-drinking texture.

KyotoLefty (9125) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 6, 2016
Bottle. Creamy caramel nose, vanilla. Sweet toffee flavor. Coying and way too sweet but not horrible.

MarcoDL (3980) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle. Dark pour. Nice aroma of sweet toffee caramel, rozijn and cream. Nice creamy taste of caramel, crème brûlée, toffee, chocolate and cream. Surprisingly nice.
