UPDATED: MAY 13, 2015 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 just okay.

”Wells Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale é uma cerveja artesanal inglesa baseada na tradicional sobremesa britânica de mesmo nome, desenvolvida pelos mestres-cervejeiros que criaram os sucessos Wells Banana Bread e Young's Double Chocolate Stout. A nova cerveja se inspira no pudim de calda de caramelo bem pegajosa, perfeita para finalizar a refeição e harmonizar com sobremesa. É escura, muito complexa, mas de grande suavidade, destacando todos os aromas de uma sobremesa a base de caramelo, mas sem ser excessivamente doce.” ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ehh. The description fits. Huge toffee aroma. Pours clear brown with a quickly disappearing head. Thin bodied, sweet medicinal finish.

Aroma erinnert wirklich total an Karamellpudding. Geschmack auch sehr karamellig und süß, allerdings auch etwas alkoholisch und im Nachgeschmack etwas kratzig. Der Karamellgeschmack wirkt von Schluck zu Schluck etwas künstlicher...

Geruch nach alkoholischem Karamellpudding. Im Geschmack dann sehr wässrig mit Puddingaroma, aber ohne Mundgefühl. Kaum Bitter. Mumpf.

330ml bottle from Market Place by Jasons in Hong Kong. Pours clear dark brown with a dissipating white head. Aroma of malt, toffee and vanilla. Bittersweet finish, certainly not over sweet.

Tognetta (218) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 29, 2015
Marrom escura, espuma bege irregular de longa duração. Aroma doce intenso de pudim de leite, levemente maltada. Paladar leve adocicado e maltado menos do que o esperado, mas bem balanceado, com um pouco de amargor. Paladar agradável, boa drinkability sem excessos. Aftertaste evidencia bastante o toffe e caramelo.

Of course it's tasty, it's a dessert! Fits the name - if you really want something that tastes like beer, just say no ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Against my better judgement, I ordered this at the bar. I took 2 sips (the second to confirm that the first sip was awful), then requested that it be taken away.

330ml US-by-UK import, Maruhn. Oozing with natural enough crème brûlée and caramel pannacotta aroma, becoming more infantile sickly sweet in taste, on an easygoing, cleanly liquid-watery palate. You can almost taste the faceless ESB sweating underneath the dessert aroma overload like a middle-aged man in a furry animal costume on a crowded children’s birthday party. Fun & tasty ma non troppo.

Poured an.amber color with a white head. Aroma was straight worthers candies. Flavor similar but didn’t translate into.something I really wanted to drink. Way too sweet.
