Fun try. Cola, not much head, less lace. Sweet nose. Taste is best part, sweet, but not too cloying. Mouth thin, not very balanced and a one off try.

Body has a nice dark walnut color, pale head lacks froth. Smell is subdued, although toffee definitely appears above the bitter English style hops as it warms. Flavor is very good from the start, much like an English brown ale. Solid mouth feel with a good balance of carbonation and viscosity. This was my first. I'm actually heading to the fridge for another as we speak. Good beer.

Was leery about trying this....The name sounds disgusting enough. Received in a mix n match 6 pack for Christmas and thought I would give it a try. Was pleasantly surprised. Low marks for appearance because I couldn't coax a head out of this with the hardest of pours. Mouth feel was rather thin and disappointing as well. Smell was excellent ...lots of vanilla but kind of one dimensional. Taste of sweet vanilla...no bitterness and very drinkable. Wish I had a few more of these. This thing had an awful label tho...lol.

Another great offering from Wells! I am in love with their Banana Bread Beer and now this as well. It pours a deep but brown color and immediately you catch the aroma of toffee and caramel. The taste gives off a sweet nutty character, but a dry finish makes it perfect... Not too sweet, just enough. I really enjoy the refreshment of this beer. This should be a desert beer after any good meal. I highly suggest trying this one!

Bottle. Body of the beer is brown but clear. Head is tan and readily and steadily laces the glass. The nose is very sweet and brimming with sugars, caramel, breads and toffee, of course. I decide that one hefty sniff is enough to know what I am getting into and dive right it. Toffee, caramel, butterscotch, mild chocolate. Sweet breads. Generic sugar candy. All sweet. Body isn't very heavy but it feels a bit sticky and sugar-grainy. Splitting a 12 oz. was the right choice here as this is not the type of beer that tends to impress me (that being beer intended to solely taste like a food or another liquid). Hopefully won't be drinking this again.

A little thin, as others have noted, but surprisingly not-too-sweet. In fact, there is an overriding bitterness that makes it all the more drinkable. The toffee smell hits immediately, but taste-wise is not too cloying. Nice carbonation, good cling on the glass. Mighty impressive for a UK beer attempting the "craft" market. I'd drink this more than I should!

Pours a clear brown color with light tan head. Toffee and pudding notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some light sweetness and a little bitterness. A nice balance between the two.

A pedophiles dream come true. Candy in a bottle. we'd all get in the van for this except David, he is holding out for Ryan's buckeye.

A: This poured a clear dark crimson with some tan head.
S: It smelled like cooking vanilla, with some molasses and sweet bready malt.
T: It tasted like cooking vanilla and cream soda, with some sour lager yeast. It had an artificially sweet aftertaste.
M: It was watery with a little carbonation. Thin body.
D: This was an odd brew, with a scent and taste that didn't fit the target character. The body was weak, and the finish wasn't very smooth, so it wasn't so easy to drink. This seemed like the sort of beer that an American brewery like Southern Tier could have nailed, but Wells really missed the mark.

Appearance: Pours a dark, almost cola color.

Overall: Not a prominent toffee taste, there is a sweetness with gives flavors of butterscotch candy and creamy butter. Also a little bitter. Okay to try for a novelty beer but not something that I would get again.

Not one i would want to drink all the time, but not bad for a novelty dessert beer.
