kansascityCW (136) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours medium to dark brown, half finger of head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, burnt sugar. Smells great but isn’t as strong as I thought it would be. Taste is the same as aroma. Body is a little thin. Very tasty dessert beer but a little underwhelming.

Uma sobremesa em forma de cerveja. É boa para determinadas ocasiões, mas não é para o meu paladar diário.

Bottle from the parents. Sweet - like toffee, Funnily enough. Although without the burnt edge I'd expect from the actual pus. Dark treacle brown. Think frothy off-white head. Initial sweetness before bitterness kicks in. Has the burnt toffee edge I was expecting in the aroma. Light bodied. Slick. Flat carbonation. Long astringent finish. Perfectly drinkable but basic and tastes like additives as opposed to the real thing.

33cl bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a light beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, toffee, caramel. Taste follows nose. Cloying. Maybe some butterscotch. Artificial flavoring? Not very good.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2017 500ml bottle - thanks Marduk! (5:4:6:2:11=2.8)
Sweet toffee and artificial E-number sweetener aroma. Taste similar. Watery palate, a bit of fizziness cuts through the sweetness. So many E numbers with that I think I'm gonna get tongue cancer.

One of the beers in my beer chsitmas calendar, I have seen it in supermarkets before but never tried. It was alright although a little cloying and artificial tasting. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for it but I wasn't overly impressed

Toffee sweetness clashes slightly with the mild roast aroma on the first sip. I would have preferred the sweetness to linger. Otherwise well balanced and original beer.

HighlanderOne (1396) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - NOV 23, 2017
AROMA - burnt toffee APPEARANCE - cream soda TASTE - burnt toffee, caramel, coffee, vanilla, floral notes PALATE - big carbonation, and slightly medicinal OVERALL - I would buy again, but there are better choices.
