Davhgbrew (947) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Dark copper/light brown color. Aroma of vanilla and creamy caramel. Huge sweet caramel flavor upon first sip. Middle is moderately bitter, body is slightly creamy medium. Low to moderate carbonation. Finish has big vanilla and caramel/toffee as well in the final breath. This brew is pretty nicely balanced and not nearly as sweet or syrupy like I was expecting. Just a solid low alc Sessionable brew.

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.

GuideDogSaint (713) - Xiamen, CHINA - MAY 4, 2015
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.

Tognetta (209) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 29, 2015
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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

bartlebier (2459) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 21, 2015
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.

ContemplateBeer (1676) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 14, 2015
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!

Very good beer! This is not a sweet beer and The toffee flavor is not overdone. Gives you a taste of that flavor at first with a smooth beer finish. It is different and you have to be in the mood for it, but very good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
