Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with a large foamy tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was very strong vanilla cream, toffee and was very sweet. The flavor was strong vanilla cream, toffee and artificial vanilla. long finish. Medium body. Reminded me of vanilla cream soda.

11.2 oz bottle- Pours dark ruby red to brown with a small off white head that reduces to a collar. Aroma is minerals, like in a Sam Smith kind of way, vanilla, toffee, better than expected. The taste is strong vanilla and caramel, toffee, it tastes like a piece of candy, like a hard chewy caramel chunk, medium dry finish, some hops. I think this beer is underrated actually, i liked this more than i was expecting, dessert in a glass.

What the what? This is like candy. Extremely sweet. Lots of toffee. Burnt marshmallows. I can enjoy half of this and then it’s simply overkill.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. A novelty and enjoyable for the same. Would have been a lot better with a sweeter and heavier taste of toffee.

330ml bottle. This tastes a lot like the dessert, huge toffee flavor, sweet, like a dessert. Good if you like "food" beers.

Wow! Aroma of chocolates and pudding. Very robust flavour of toffee pudding. Wells does a great job with desert beers!

An opaque brown body with a thin tan head that had mild retention. Sweet toffee notes and butter in the aroma. Flavor was mostly of sweet toffee there was some butter notes but not in a negative way. Full mouth feel. Although it was mostly one dimensional it was good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330 ml bottle. Dark amber brown color. Small creamy beige head. Rich toasted malt nose has notes of toffee and nuts. Flavor is a creamy toffee malt with a slight tannic background. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Notes of brewed tea and sweet caramel. Finish is dry.

I bought this because I love toffee but it just didnt do it for me. Amber pour but somewhat watery...notes of toffee aroma, but not a great finish.
