A unique English ale with tons of toffee, dark toast and buttery vanilla flavor. But not sweet. Crisp and very drinkable with a soft carbonation that crescendos at the end to cleanse the palate. Pours up very pretty mahogany with a tight bubbled tan head. A rise in metallic hop bite gives a bit of zing to the finish. And again the olde schoole British masters take the American whelps to school.

11.2 oz. bottle poured to my sampler glass at the 8th WCD Trade Expo, showing a clear, amber color, with decent, tan froth, and spiraling foam as lacing. The nose was a little toast, toffee, caramel, sweetness, and chocolate. Light to medium bodied, the taste was similar but less expressive notes, with decent carbonation that was a bit seltzer-like, with a little salinity. After all of the previous samplings, a nice, dessert-like break in the action.

Bottle from Asda. Mahogany in colour, with a thin, off-white, head. Sweet toffee and red berry fruit aroma, with a touch of leafy hop. Flavour was also sweet, with some fudge upfront, fruit cake malts with a hint of staleness and a slightly boozy finish. An ok novelty, that I wouldn’t rush to drink again.

Toffee aroma with a coffee and swee brown sugar. Too sweet to be a satisfying beer.

I don't normally go for beers like this... usually pour out the bottle after a few swigs. I think this beer is done well. It's still not my thing, but that's just my taste. As far as these kinds of beers go, I'd pick this over many others. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fine tuned to almost a smooth Stout, but without the thickness that Stout’s tend to acquire. Think a chocolate/coffee Porter meets Heath bar.

vinivini (3307) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUN 16, 2017
Deep bronze to brown colour. Misty. Moderate capuccino head. Strong toffee and chocolate aroma. Feels hardly natural. Medium body. Lots of malts on taste. Toffee, caramel. Light bitterness. I’m not fond of it.

Pours dark amber, small and quickly disappearing head. Nice toffee aroma with an addition of bread-like aromas and slight hoppy notes. Very low bitterness, medium carbonation, light body. Nothing special but enjoyed it.

I used to like this before I trained my palate... now it’s a different story. Pours dark brown, with a medium beige head, lot of lacing. Smells good, of toffee and caramel, sweet, cake. Taste doesn’t go along though, mediocre roasted malts and artificial toffee pudding flavourings, loses the sweetness quickly and becomes dry. Light body, thin feel, average carbonation, astringent finish. Meh beer.
