Dark copper/light brown color. Aroma of vanilla and creamy caramel. Huge sweet caramel flavor upon first sip. Middle is moderately bitter, body is slightly creamy medium. Low to moderate carbonation. Finish has big vanilla and caramel/toffee as well in the final breath. This brew is pretty nicely balanced and not nearly as sweet or syrupy like I was expecting. Just a solid low alc Sessionable brew.

Butelka. Ciemnobrązowe, lekko opalizujące. Piana biała, pokaźna, opada, ale zostawia cienką, drobnopęcherzykową warstewkę. W aromacie tofi i wanilia (rzeczywiście kojarzy się z budyniem), karmel i delikatna czekolada. W smaku już gorzej, bo głwnie karmel, ze specyficzną, lekko alkoholową goryczką. Bardzo intensywne smaki, a jednak piwo dość wodniste. Wysycenie średnie, dla mnie za wysokie. Zaskakujące piwo i może dlatego tak wysoka ocena.

Yikes! This tasted like a root beer float. It looks good in the glass, dark brown, with a medium head. That first sip is surprising. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
