jredmond (7241) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Vi. Pours a deep brown body. Nose is a touch fecal - a bit off maybe. Mouthfeel is light bodied with notes of vanilla bean, caramel pudding and raisin bread. Decent.

gildnerk (197) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2016
Pours deep brown with a pale head that disappears very quickly. Aromas of dates and toffee with roasted malts. Taste is primarily bitter at first with some sweeter caramel notes at the end, slightly artificial toffee-like aftertaste. Not as good as I'd expected.

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle 500 ml from Amstein - St-Légier (CH). Red-brown Ale with a short fleeting head. Surprising and unequivocal sents of fresh toffy, cream. The mouth is smooth, soft, on caramel but less than in aroma, sweetened malt, vanilla, acidulity and the whole is temperated by hops. Easy beer, a curiosity, we like or we do not like. Not for great purists.

mR_fr0g (8289) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle shared with sarah picked up at ASDA. Reddy brown coloured pour with a thin off white head. Aroma is sweet, nice toffee caramel and fudge. Does smell like sticky toffee pudding. Light apple. Flavour is composed of semi sweet toffee, caramel, fudge, dry nutty malts, powdery, cakey malts. Palate is sweet, then dry and powdery, highish carbonation. A lot better than I thought it would be.

Clear deep red - amber beer, good pale tan head. Nose of sweet caramel. Palate is light and semi dry with a good fine minerally crispness. Taste follows the nose and yes a little toffee in there as well. Modest fruits underneath. Light crisp finish. There is an artificiality to this beer that eventually starts to grate but in the short term it’s good fun.

zacgillbanks (4156) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle from Aldi, Washington. Dark copper coloured with a thin white head. It has a rich, sweet malty and toffee flavour followed by caramel and red fruit on the sweet finish. A bit sickly sweet but pretty much spot-on for the name of the beer.

shrubber85 (10243) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Bottle. Nutty toffee malt aroma. Dark amber with moderate head. Sweet lightly nutty toffee malt and very mildly bitter hay flavor. Body a bit light. Pleasant.

geologyguy (1250) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Sweet toffee smell that is pretty strong! Taste isn’t as sweet or heavy as I expected, toffee is still there with a touch of bitterness, more watery than I expected it to be. Wish it was heavier and a bit sweeter like I thought...
