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.

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 (17284) - 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 (8697) - 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.

Bottle. Creamy caramel nose, vanilla. Sweet toffee flavor. Coying and way too sweet but not horrible.

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.

ordybill (1313) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Douglasville, GA. The appearance is a dark brown with a small off-white head. The aroma is full of toffee, caramel and some vanilla extract. The taste matches the aroma and is rather thick for the palate.

From BnC. So I was so surpised that this wasn’t a mess that I’m going to side in it’s favor. Very very toffee puddingy. Very desert beer. Not very complex but there you go. Serving: Bottle

I worried about this from the label( this was given to me as a gift) and therefore avoided trying this for a number of months. Opened tonight and unsurprisingly this lived up to all my reservations. Nose is comedy caramel and nothing else. To drink, chemical caramel taste with absolutely nothing behind it. Pretty much undrinkable although cannot imagine this is any surprise to any beer lover
