2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

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.

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!
