A beer sounds good right about now. A dessert sounds sound right about now. Why not mix the two together? Wells may have the answer with Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale. Coming out of a 330 ml bottle, onto the beer:

Amber brown colored with hues of toasted orange. Its body is translucent, the head semi-creamy and half an inch thick, and a few spots of lace which cling to the glass. I get the smell of a pleasing dessert from this beer. The caramel accents are sweet and succulent, a note of milk chocolate, and butterscotch. If it tastes like it smells, I have a winner.

The taste doesn't hit the crescendo of the aroma, though it still is a pleaser. The base beer tastes like a bitter-style, while above hit strong caramel and butterscotch flavors. A wave of bittering hops and minerals cleans up the sweet flavor and leaves a vague bitterness and musty aftertaste. Despite being inspired after a pudding, the beer is light bodied and has a gentle buzz of carbonation bubbles.

Wells does dessert, and it's a modest example. It's refreshing to see a change from the common chocolate infused dessert beers on the market.
