Bottle: Rich, mahogany pour, deep brown with very slight ruby tones, topped with a timid, bubbly beige head. Aroma is actually quite lovely on this one. Smells like a caramel flan dessert, drizzled with vanilla cream... Heavy caramelized, residual sugar, some eggy bread & cake-y notes, whipped cream, finishing with toffee & nuts. Sweet, very dessert-like, & very nice. Taste leaves a bit to be desired, unfortunately. Not as sweet as the aroma would have you believe... Light caramel malt, faint cocoa dust, toasty biscuit notes, very timid vanilla, some dry nuts in the finish & the smallest inclusion of earthy hops. Touch of cola, toffee, & earth linger in the aftertaste. Light, soft mouth feel. The aroma trumps the taste in this beer... Smells great, tastes decent.

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.

crossovert (7309) - Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2014
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!

crazyvin (1933) - New York, USA - AUG 23, 2014
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.

Bottle. Very dark amber pour with a smaller beige head. Lots of vanilla in the aroma. Creamy and sweet. This is growing on me.

"Too low a percentile on rb and too high on here. I thought this was good and exactly as advertised, do some of the lowball scores make no sense, but to each his own. A nice looking mahogany pour. Aroma and flavor heavy with toffee but balanced with some earthy hops, with a lighter body that prevents it from being cloying. Wonít get a lot but Iíll have it again Iím sure."

Bif (1421) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a fair head. Aroma of toffee, malt, vanila and dark fruit. Taste of toffee, dark fruit and bit of malt. Mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Mediumbody, smooth with an interesting feel. Decent beer but a tad sweet.

Pours a three finger khaki head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. dark brown color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Toffee nose and flavor is toffee then some hop bitterness. Not bad but a one time good deal for me. $3.49 for a 330ml bottle from Julioís Liquors Westborough, Ma.
