Davhgbrew (948) - 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.

Pours clear dark amber little nose. Sweet malt nose but medicinal notes. Medium mouthfeel, low carbonation. Cloyingly Sweet malt with medicinal aftertaste, like sweet cough medicine. Not sure I will drink this again

Clear light brown with zero head to speak of. Nutty aroma. Creamy texture with a taste that is, well, as describes.

Bov (10941) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 20, 2015
courtesy of Philipp Sigg - clear ruby-brown beer with a moderate foam left; strong and evident notes of toffee; sweetish, thin-bodied and with more strong toffee notes in the finish - one-dimensional and surprising, yet ok

UXO (1005) - CANADA - NOV 14, 2015
Appearance: clear brown with a short, short-lived light tan head, minimal patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: sweet toffee and butterscotch, very light coffee. (6/10) Taste: strong sweet, mild bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium sticky body, moderate carbonation, lightly bitter finish. (3/5) Take one unremarkable ESB and one bag of Werther’s Originals. Powder the toffees and mix them in the beer. Enjoy. (10/20)

It is a honest beer, some critics are hard but the taste of a beer is something personal. The taste is bitter with some coffee and we can taste in a discret way the puddind or toffee. The colour is dark like the double chocolate.

Bottle. deep amber with a beige head that’s soon a coat. Does indeed smell like the pudding. Medium bodied. Very sweet but it dries out a little at the end. There is some bitterness and there are some beer-like notes in it. But it’s mostly like the pudding - brown sugar cooked with cream, some dried fruit. Well done for what it is.
