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.

Bottled 500ml. -from Pivoljub Ljubljana. Dark amber coloured, small off-white head, toffee in the nose. Sweet malty, toffee, caramel and mild nutty notes in the finish. Pretty sweet and artificial. Not my type.

Caramel dominates with this novelty beer but it's surprisingly drinkable as a dessert beer with a decent aroma and taste if sticky toffee pudding and not overdone with some hops coming through in the finish.

Toffee tastes very clear and the aroma mixed with the beer bottom. Not so bitter on the mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mmmbeer (1334) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2015
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent brown with heavy maroon shading when held to a light source, thin white ring about the vessel for a head with minimal lacing. Aroma of caramel that could have used two more minutes on heat, cream, and desperation with the best of intentions. Hits the mouth with a light medium body, sweetness throughout that kills the malt sensation and feel, middle has some cream, finish is light and has a toffee feel. Not bad, just a little too sweet for me.

King_Alex_II (671) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Fast decaying foam in top of a beautiful clear brownish ruby colored beer. The smell is very toffeeish and super smooth, while it promises a wonderful sugar shock. The taste is a completely as awesome. Solid carbonation, which is a bit working against the round creamy sweet toffee pudding part. The taste sadly isn’t that intense. The slight bitter touch isn’t beneficial either. However still a very nice beer that deserves its name.

BeerRenter76 (303) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Originally rated on 10/23/14. Aroma smell exactly like A & W’s Cream Soda, nice start.. Deep brown colored body, with a thin light beige cap that leaves the occasional spot or two of lace. Flavor was a bit of a let down from the aroma, faint cream soda, toffee and caramel. All were rather faint. Overall it didnt taste bad its just that the flavors never really stood out.

Aroma is sweet, toffee. Clear maroon pour with a one finger head. Taste is also sweet, toffee also present. Palate is a little watery. Overall, an interesting beer. May get again.

Bottle, 500 ml from Pivoljub. Courtesy of and shared with JFK10000. Pours brown with off-white head. Toffee caramel aroma. Malty caramel but lacks body and tastes bit empty.
