Astringent hops at first, followed by very pleasant notes of toffee and butterscotch. A transparent brown ale? Id say its a red/amber in appearance. Solid head and good retention, minimal lacing. The sole thing keeping this from being a drainpour is a nice taste. Not sickly sweet and not bitter, with an enjoyable toffee and butterscotch flavor. A ridiculously thin beer, with a name like "sticky, toffee pudding" you expect an smooth solid mouthfeel. Also, there is a very strange out of place dryness. A decent beer. I wouldnt recommend towards it, but wouldnt try hard to dissuade someone from it.

Enjoyable beer, with a lovely toffee aroma and taste. Dark amber in colour.

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.

BeerViking (4296) - 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, its a novelty act, but its a pretty good one!

tanobicho (9) - Montevideo, URUGUAY - NOV 7, 2016 does not count
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.

Aroma of caramel, toffee and malt. Sweet, simple, like toffee mixed with light beer. No bitterness or anything in counter for sweetness.

Piwo tylko o jedym profilu. Budyniowo czekoladowe,, czekolada na goraco, mnostwo toffe i krowki mlecznej oraz cukierki Werters Orginal. Slodycz wnet zalepia usta, pachnie typowo puddingiem i creme Brulie. Na zakonczenie adwokat jajeczny z truflami. Bardzo deserowe piwo i tylko takie. Zero goryczy i innych kontrujacych cech

Pours a rich red brown with a thin tan head. Rich toffee and caramel aroma. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Burnt toffee and caramel taste that doesnt quite live up to the aroma.
