0,5 l bottle shared.Appearance: Headless dark brown beer. Aroma:Sweet butterscotch and caramel pudding., toffee. Taste: Very sweet, butterscoth, toffee, cream,caramel, dried fruit. medium body,average carbonation, sticky texture Perfect execution in the aroma, and taste, as it 100% delivers. THe only problem is that caramel pudding doesn’t make a good beer imho.

From a half litre bottle. The sweet smell hits you the second you open the bottle. Pours dark brown with a creamy, frothy, dirty white head. Smells of brown sugar, dates and dried fruit and it actually lives up to the name because the taste is quite puddingy but not too overwhelming. I think Wells did a good job with this beer. Some people might find it a bit gimmicky or too sweet but I’d say it’s worth a try.

northropfrye (3482) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 8, 2016
Dark reddish brown body, off-white head, some lacing. Sweet caramel, dried fruit and vanilla aroma, which I rather liked. Taste has the same sweetness with also a dry bitterness and dry finish. Tastes fake and weird but okay.

Has a very noticeable toffee-caramel richness. And it is in fact cleanly brewed for the most part. However, the body is far too thin, the malt body doesn't back the added flavours. Bottle in sk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thengling (48) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 11, 2016
500 ml bottle. Chestnut brown pour. Thin head. Lots of toffee in the aroma. Taste is spicy, less toffee, some nutmeg, saccharine sweetness. Fairly dry. Metallic aftertaste. Not my thing.

BeerViking (4615) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2016
Bottle, pours a rich red-brown with a fine tan head. Aroma is indeed steamed pudding, with notes of toffee caramel and cocoa which carry through onto the palate, where they are joined by an underlying dry and earthy bitterness set against an almost sugary sweetness. OK, it’s a novelty act, but it’s a pretty good one!

tanobicho (16) - Düsseldorf, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2016
Such a good one! Pours clear red to brown with a small head, some lacing. Smells like toffee, biscuit, caramel, packaged sweet, very intense. Highly sweet drinkable and a short little bitter finish.

hajsman (317) - Gdańsk, POLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Aroma of caramel, toffee and malt. Sweet, simple, like toffee mixed with light beer. No bitterness or anything in counter for sweetness.
