This is great tasting! I was worried they wouldn’t get the Toffee taste right, but they did. Definitely would recommend it.

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.

ContemplateBeer (1653) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 14, 2015
Aroma: I’ve never had "sticky toffee pudding," maybe some Jell-o in the 80s, but yeah, this kinda smells like that, or maybe like a caramel Dum-Dums sucker. Other than that, it’s a little nutty and has some light, woody spice. Appearance: Chestnut brown with a foamy tan head that settles into a lightly bubbly skin. Flavor: Nutty up front with woody spice; toffee/caramel comes in a little later, but never reaches the level of sweetness suggested by the nose; the finish is pretty dried out. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: This is totally a gimmick beer, but a really well done one, I think. Give it a shot!

Very good beer! This is not a sweet beer and The toffee flavor is not overdone. Gives you a taste of that flavor at first with a smooth beer finish. It is different and you have to be in the mood for it, but very good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scooterbub (901) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 5, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a thin beige head that fades. Taste is of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, toffee and bread. Similar aroma. Has a medium body with a sweet finish. Easy to drink and enjoyable, while not being heavy.

benpickens (425) - Camarillo, California, USA - APR 4, 2015
Pours medium brown with - not surprisingly - toffee aromas. Palate consistent with most brown ales with a coffee like finish.

EyeAmBaldman (363) - Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2015
Pours reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma is toffee and caramel. Taste is fairly metallic on the front end, kind of like watered down cream soda. The backend is sweet, like caramel toffee. Not bad but not great.

veceo (729) - CROATIA - MAR 21, 2015
Clear reddish brown color, average sized off white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of vanilla pudding, caramel, citrus, malty swetness. Taste is pretty much the same. Light to medium body, lively carbonation. Watery, so not really sticky. All in all, interesting stuff.

YigSvartka (169) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 12, 2015
Nearly opaque copper black. Minimal head. Dessert-like aroma consisting of caramel, toffee, chocolate, malt and dried fruit. Thin bodied and refreshing. Aforementioned aromatic qualities are present in the taste as well. Particularly milk chocolate and toffee during the finish, although not extremely potent. A lack of hop or bitterness as well. A richer body and flavour would elevate this one significantly.
