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.

Oh dear. Strong caramel smells and taste, but it tastes like a fake beer. Like a panda cola used to taste like a fake coca cola. Its like a bottle of 5% alcohol water with a caramel flavoured cordial poured into it. Really horrible beer.

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.

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
