Pours medium to dark brown, half finger of head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, burnt sugar. Smells great but isn’t as strong as I thought it would be. Taste is the same as aroma. Body is a little thin. Very tasty dessert beer but a little underwhelming.

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 (159) - 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.

Bottle 0.5l bought at Pivoljub Ljubljana. Clear mahogany liquid with beige fluffy foam. Medium body and carbonation. Strong taste of caramel, bitterness of baked sugar. Smells like Toffifee candy. Toffee aftertaste. Interesting.

digopossobon (319) - MACAE, BRAZIL - FEB 20, 2015
A: Strong butterscotch aroma, but that’s the point of this beer.caramel. A: red, amber, cloudy, minimal head, tan foam. T: medium sourness, heavy bitterness, medium sweetness P: medium body, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter, long finish. O: O aroma é bom, o amargo é bom. Mas realmente parece artificial. É uma experiência diferente e vale por isso.

Exactly what it claims. The toffee comes out late but sticks on the tongue and goes iNto the nose.

God this is awful artificial. Best part is the aroma hints of vanilla and toffee. Taste you get a quick hit of vanilla and toffee than it turns into a watered down thin bodied metallic nightmare. If this was done right it could be really interesting. A contender for worst beer of the year.

Wells&Youngs è un birrificio inglese di livello molto buono con alcune eccellenze prodotte. Incuriosito da questa birra al toffee, non ho potuto mancare l’assaggio. Ha un colore quasi marrone e una schiuma pannosa di decente persistenza. L’aroma è spettacolare: toffee e caramello inebrianti. L’aspettativa si conferma pienamente alla bevuta, con la dolcezza di caramello toffee e vaniglia a farla da padrone. Il gusto è pronunciato ma non diventa mai stucchevole, ben bilanciato da una corretta amarezza. Ovviamente molto bevibile come tutte le birre di questa tipologia, consistenza acquosa e media frizzantezza. Una birra molto particolare, perfetta su un dolce, al cioccolato per esempio.

Bottle from App. Vintner - pours clear brown like cola. Aroma of fake vanilla, slightly off putting. Mmm artificial flavoring... Not so much.

drowland (6577) - Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle at Brent’s going away tasting, summer 2014. Brown pour with a small khaki head. Not a good aroma, tons of fake vanilla, bready, burnt caramel, toffee, fake flavorings, floral, bitter. Equally gross flavor, Too sweet, and doesn’t even remind of sticky pudding. Gross bitter burnt caramel, too much vanilla, fake toffee flavoring. Not good.
