It is a honest beer, some critics are hard but the taste of a beer is something personal. The taste is bitter with some coffee and we can taste in a discret way the puddind or toffee. The colour is dark like the double chocolate.

Bottle. deep amber with a beige head that’s soon a coat. Does indeed smell like the pudding. Medium bodied. Very sweet but it dries out a little at the end. There is some bitterness and there are some beer-like notes in it. But it’s mostly like the pudding - brown sugar cooked with cream, some dried fruit. Well done for what it is.

RobBestwick (733) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle. Sweet toffee aroma. Pours a very dark reddish brown with frothy off white head. Very sweet toffee flavour with some nutty and roasted coffee notes. Syrupy in texture and a hint of bitterness in the finish.

Poured from a bottle, as a Halloween gift. First of all, my wife tried a sip and aids "ewwww!!!!" The aroma is delicious, sweet like candy corn. Not nearly as sweet to the taste. yummy.

Pours dark hazy brown. A strong caramel aroma. A very strong sweet caramel, toffee, and malt taste. Too sweet for my liking.
