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.

Bottle pours a clear dark brown with a small root beer consistency brown head and decent lacing. Aroma is sweet alcohol vinegar coffee toffee bread. Taste is much simpler than the nose with a nice light coffee toffee beer flavor. Smooth and very easy drinking. Finishes with a bit more bitterness than you’d expect. I could see myself potentially having another one of these...someday.

500ml bottle . In a plastic cup I brought back from a party . I liked the gimmick suggested in the name and my jaded skepticism about this being a generic beer was cut down nicely by the rich and welcoming nose . Actually smells like soft love pudding. Icing sugar , toffee ice cream , and fanny juice . The beer resembles a creamflow pour . Flavours and nuances . Sweet toffee , light kinda dull malt bready chewiness , raisin and light floral bittersweet finish. It’s kinda novelty and the nose is better than the palate .

Bottle. Pours a clear brown colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, some bready malts, slight vanilla, a little dark fruits, a hint of molasses and subtle honey. Taste of toffee, caramel, some bready malts, slight dark fruits, a little vanilla, a hint of honey and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation and a slick texture. A soft, bittersweet, toffee, floral hop bitterness in the finish. Similar to banana bread beer it’s sweet yeah and more like a dessert beer but the flavours are there (maybe a little artificial) but tasty. A soft hop bitterness which doesn’t make it cloying. Well brewed.

Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale. Barwa brązowa. Zapach toffi. W smaku rozwodnione toffi. Piwo bez rewelacji.

Brown color. Quickly dissipating head. Smells like toffee candies, overpowering any subtlety the aroma may have. Thank god it didn’t taste like it smelled. Well balanced beer. Slight malty flavor. Balanced hoppiness, though does have some fake-seeming toffee notes. Ok.

Holy moly this is a dessert beer. Crazy amount of toffee, caramel, and general desserty sugariness. Pretty delicious in small amounts.

Bottle at home listening to records. Pours well and is quite drinkable. Toffee and caramel overtones and a nice accompaniment to stodgy puddings

Served in a tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours dark clear ruby-brown colour with a beige head. Aroma is toffee, molasses and caramel. Taste is toffee, caramel, bitter-sweet with a caramelised sugar-bitter finish. Medium body with lively carbonation. Great dessert beer without being sickly sweet and sticky. So unusual and fascinating to the point that I will be seeking more to re-drink the experience!

BBE 21/04/17. Ruskean punertava, niukkavaahtoinen. Makea kahvinen toffeen tuoksu täyttää huoneen. Suutuntuma kylmänä kahvikarkkilikööriä, vetisyyttä alapäässä, teollinen ja metallisen tylppä karvas yläpää. Lämmettyään lasissa pehmenee ja mietonee. Aika hirveää siltikin.
