The color was dark brown and resembled a cola but the head was weak and had little retention.

The scent is spectacular with a sticky toffee pudding aroma, then again that does make sense.

The taste is sweet with a toffee and molasses flavor. There's a bit of bready, I guess you could call it a pudding like malt. Rather one dimensional but really good for dessert.

The feel is so thin and carbonated, almost abrasive, that it actually detracts from the dessert qualities.

Wow, what a wierd experience. Highs and lows and a feel that actually ruins the flavor. I love this whole craft thing!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: dark brown in color, 1/3 inch head, medium carbonation, clear

Smell: caramel and bread--not as strong smelling as I would have thought

Taste: toffee, sugar, raisins, breadiness

Mouthfeel: medium bodied and carbonation, sweet

Drinkability: This one is interesting. I do get toffee and light pudding, but maybe not the stickiness. The taste is very much front-forward and is not as strong as the beer lingers. I would get this again if it was offered, but prefer the banana bread beer

This beer is a fail. It smells a bit like the pudding it's supposed to evoke, but the taste is of burnt sugar with a watery aftertaste. Very thin and one dimensional, and a disappointment. I wasn't expecting this to be earth-shaking, but I did at least hope it would have some body and substance. Oh well.

Dark colour, mild head, medium carbonation. Pleasant toffee fragrance. Smooth creamy mouthfeel, yet peppy. Good ale flavour. Sweet at the front, more bitter at the back. Notes of toffee, caramel.

BBD of 11/20/14, so I'm thinking this at least 4 months old, but I could be wrong...

Pours a super effervescent scarlet with 2 fingers of tan head. Nice lacing & head retention

S: Huge toffee presence, a little bit of woody hops.

T: Toffee, dryness, a bit of boozeyness, weird. Caramel & woody dryness as this warms. Finishes dry, boozey &

MF: Light/medium bodied, fairly assertive carbonation, turns prickly as this warms

A nice dessert beer, crank up the ABV a point or two & dial back the fakey caramel& this would've been much better. Was hoping for so much more....
