Astringent hops at first, followed by very pleasant notes of toffee and butterscotch. A transparent brown ale? I’d say it’s a red/amber in appearance. Solid head and good retention, minimal lacing. The sole thing keeping this from being a drainpour is a nice taste. Not sickly sweet and not bitter, with an enjoyable toffee and butterscotch flavor. A ridiculously thin beer, with a name like "sticky, toffee pudding" you expect an smooth solid mouthfeel. Also, there is a very strange out of place dryness. A decent beer. I wouldn’t recommend towards it, but wouldn’t try hard to dissuade someone from it.

Pours clear brown with slight white head. Somewhat nutty aroma with a hint of molasses. Flavor could be a bit bolder for my taste. Somewhat lacking.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear brown color with a small white head. A super sweet nose of chocolate...dare I say pudding. Light vanilla flavors, chocolate, certainly tastes like pudding, a bit of fruit. Very light but flavorful. Good for what it is.

Water and foam on the tongue. Horrible after taste. Nice toffee aroma. No head. Overall crummy beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, shared at game night. Tawny amber, clear, with a rapidly fading off white head. Extract-laden buttery toffee flavour (like Starbucks ToffeeNut syrup) with a thin malt structure. Not for me.

(bottle - 330 ml) Dark brown pour with a tan head. Mildly roast aroma with some good toffee and caramel hints. Flavor is roasty and not too sweet at the start but has a very delicious caramel aftertaste.

Almost black pour. Small off white head. Little lacing. Aroma of caramel and dark fruit. Taste like caramel and vanilla.

500ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is big on caramel with some grassy and spicy notes. Taste is a bold caramel malty sweetness with a grassy and spicy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Surprising good brew and I recommend this beer for others to try.

Look: pours a dark brown with thick off white or light tan head. Smell: super sweet. Smells like toffee. Vanilla. Brown sugar. Taste: sweet toffee. Caramel. Vanilla. Brown sugar. Feel: much lighter than I thought. Medium carbonation. Leaves a sticky feel on the mouth. Overall: too sweet for me. But definitely what I would call a desert beer, if there is such a thing.

Pours a dark amber color. Aroma is toffee and sweet malts. Taste is watered down toffee and candy. More like drinking soda than beer.
