look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Very dark brown to the point of being black and only showing brown hues when light passes through. Good thumb of a light-tan head. It leaves foamy lacing on the glass.

S: It smells like butter toffee. There's no other way to put it. It has a very nice sweet caramel scent to it, with vanilla and butter. It's strong enough to notice it as soon as I put my nose near the glass.

T: At first I notice a roasted bitterness, followed by a sweet caramel flavor. It doesn't taste as rich as it smells. The roasted bitterness is not overly strong but it does seem to outshine any other flavors that might be in there. It's a bit disappointing to come from the scent to a flavor that is lacking quite a bit.

M: The mouthfeel is a bit thin but not dry...just thin. It has good carbonation but it just needs more body.

O: Overall it's an alright beer, but it's very misleading. When I read "Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale" I want something that tastes like caramel and is sweet, low on bitterness, with a thick mouthfeel that sticks to the tongue. This delivers none of that.

I picked up two of these beers at a local beer shop; I wish I bought more.

The color was a dark brown with a dark beige head. Nice mix of big and small bubbles.

The toffee aroma comes out and grabs you by the nose hairs. It was a very enjoyable sweet character with plenty of malt in the background. The same goes with the flavor. There was definitely a lot of toffee in this beer but it didn't make it cloyingly sweet. It was just right.

I can't imagine drinking bottle after bottle of this, all night, but it's definitely worth having one or two of.

It smelled delicious, had an initial taste that was kind of bitter, then a really sweet aftertaste that was exactly like toffee. It was really weird. I wish I tasted more toffee when it was still in my mouth, the difference between that and the aftertaste was too extreme.

Pours out a dark brown, with a small head. Aroma is -- sweet. Very sweet. Like unwrapping a toffee candy, and sniffing it. Flavor is packed with toffeeness, but fortunately it's not cloyingly sweet. It's rather one-dimensional though. It's all toffee all the time. Ok, I've tried it, I can pour this out now.

(Given to me a few months ago, it's sat in my fridge ever since, until now. Very odd beer. I guess it's aimed at toffee fans)
