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 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.

pityu (622) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle - Clear deep amber colour, medium off-white head, good durablity. Intense caramel aroma which supresses everythin else. Taste is sticky sweet with a lot of caramel, some breadcrust, herbal hops and some honey. Medium body, average carbonation smooth and sticky mouthfeel. Not my favourite, but its quite drinkable.

Bottle. Dark red brown with a thin head. Sweet nutty dark toffee malts. Raisins with cake. The name is a decent description. Some unpleasant bitterness. OK.

Nice toffee aroma. Smooth with a strong caramel flavor that stays with you. Maybe not for everyone, but if you have it, drink it very cold.

Butelka z datą: 21/04/17
WYGLĄD: Barwa brązowa, klarowne. Piana średniej wysokości, drobna.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Słodki zapach...toffi. Pachnie jak polewa do lodów.
SMAK: Ciężko jest wyrazić jaki smak właśnie poczułem. Zaryzykuję hipotezę, że smakuje to jak...woda gazowana o smaku toffi. Goryczka niska. Wysokie nasycenie.
OGÓLNIE: Spróbowałem raz, wystarczy!
