Based on the Great British pudding, full of rich sticky toffee-ness.

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

Pours dark copper with a fading head. Nose shows golden syrup, bready malt, caramel, raisins and toffee. Very sweet-smelling. Flavours are not as sweet with some caramel and toffee but also a harsh roasted note that doesn’t quite fit in. Also some brown sugar. Body is too light for the flavours

Only got 1.4 as give 9 for aroma, smells amazing, tastes vile! Tastes like water with a horrible favouring added :(

500ml dark bottle, filtered. Great fun. Sticky toffee pudding aroma. A little bit chemically, but attractive enough. Kinda like drinking treacle or something. Some licorice stick notes add interest. Not really a beer I’d like to have again, tastes a bit false, but it’s good fun.

Smells and tastes just like sticky toffee pudding. Lots of vanilla and toffee flavours. Nice in small batches but certainly not a session beer.

jredmond (7402) - 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 (198) - 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.
