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.

Very sweet and sticky as it should be. Easier to drink than I expected. Rather good.

Poured a deep dark brown with a slight off color head.....aroma of caramel, candy......taste up front is toffee, burnt sugars, caramel, quite amazing but then disappears and near nothing in the back end. Not sure if it was an old bottle but vey disappointing as it started so well.

2014-12-12. Dark brown small quick beige head. Aroma o sweet sugary malt and treacle. Flavour is similar, sweet malty core sugary toffee and caramel. Average plus body has light carbonation. Okay, too sweet for me right now. Bottle from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo.

It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roast with some toffee and caramel hints. The taste was roasty and had a very nice delicious caramel aftertaste. Nice.

AgentAle (796) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Aroma is very rich dark sugars, molasses, caramel and creamy toffee. Taste is a bit more subtle that the aroma alludes to. Light roasted malts, caramel and a deep toffee presence.light basic bitterness on finish. Some unpleasant metallic aftertaste. Appearance is a clear copper body with a creamy white head that retains fairly poorly.

Yeah sure there are a lot of caramel notes in this, but it has a bit of metallic back bite I wasn't fond of. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NikkTwist (1747) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle at Moriartys. Clear dark caramel pour. Expectedly full of toffee flavor. Pulls in the pudding element. Dark caramel chocolate cake. Some mild ascetic notes towards the top. Basically a boozy plum pudding. Some earthy floral hops underneath. Maybe a bit too much like a dessert to take seriously, but in balance, not bad at all.

Bottle. Dark ruby/cola with almost no head. Aroma is butterscotch, toffee and creme brûlée. Taste follows and adds a healthy dose of cream soda. Thin wispy mouthfeel. I shouldn't like this because it's too sweet and a little muddled, but it encompasses a lot of different flavors that I enjoy.
