tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2015 Bottle: Rich, mahogany pour, deep brown with very slight ruby tones, topped with a timid, bubbly beige head. Aroma is actually quite lovely on this one. Smells like a caramel flan dessert, drizzled with vanilla cream... Heavy caramelized, residual sugar, some eggy bread & cake-y notes, whipped cream, finishing with toffee & nuts. Sweet, very dessert-like, & very nice. Taste leaves a bit to be desired, unfortunately. Not as sweet as the aroma would have you believe... Light caramel malt, faint cocoa dust, toasty biscuit notes, very timid vanilla, some dry nuts in the finish & the smallest inclusion of earthy hops. Touch of cola, toffee, & earth linger in the aftertaste. Light, soft mouth feel. The aroma trumps the taste in this beer... Smells great, tastes just okay.

Deep chestnut brown beer with a medium foamy light tan head. Sweet nose of toffee, butterscotch, and candied nuts. Flavor is also quite sweet with toffee, caramel, and butterscotch finished with a mild bitterness that barely cuts the sweetness. Good beer, but would get cloying after a short while.

The aroma is of caramel. The appearance is a dark brown with a medium cream head. A little weak overall, but smelled good.

Very sweet with vanilla, caramel and obviously toffee. Quite a thick texture - enjoyable, somewhat novel beer.

The most intriguing thing about this beer is the aroma, which is malty, heavy vanilla and toffee and maybe some milk. Overall i think it doesnt smell that great. Less sweet than expected, the flavor is caramel malt mostly. Okay.

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 doesnt 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 Id say its worth a try.

northropfrye (3358) - 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

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.
