330 ml bottle into pint glass, best before 12/14/2014. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toffee, vanilla, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness, light chocolate, raisin, pear, apple, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, vanilla, brown bread, light nuttiness, light chocolate, herbal, grass, light fruitiness, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Light earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, vanilla, brown bread, light nuttiness, light chocolate, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good English brown ale. All around good robustness and balance of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

i don't know, man.

it really does smell like toffee pudding. but it seems a little too gimmicky to me, maybe.

i taste the toffee and that's cool and all, but it quickly seems like a watery beer in your mouth and you're over the novelty of the idea by the time you're halfway through the glass.

i wouldn't buy it again.

12oz bottle, best by 22/03/15, poured into a pint glass

A- pours a dark and clear ruby-brown color with a tiny fizzy white head that dissipates almost instantly, leaving nothing behind

S- butter toffee aroma is definitely noticeable up front with aromas of salty butter and melted toffee/caramel. Nutty english malt aroma from the base beer mixes with butterscotch candy

T- the toffee isn't as prominent in the taste, there is a sweetness with gives flavors of butterscotch candy and creamy butter. The base brown ale is a little thin, there are some nutty traces but more malty notes would help compliment the sweetness.

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy and sticky mouthfeel with a slightly viscous finish

O- a nice concept, but the base beer needs to be a little bit maltier to hold up to the sweetness. Still pretty drinkable though

A. Average poor 2 inch of head. The color is dark amber but the head is white/tan like a pilsner. I suspect food coloring.
S. Sweet, soy sauce, artificial chocolate, Very sweet.
T. Watered down, artificial sweetener. Taste like a weak Bud Light with the fake chocolate flavoring they put in chocolate yogurt. I suspect the main ingredient is rice. With an after taste of cigarette butts.
M. Watered down and over carbonated. I can still taste the cigarette butts.
O. Not very good, not worth trying for $11 a 4 pack. And the cigarette butt stays with you for a while.

Amazing reddish-brown clear color, wow!!!. Aroma of caramel cream, nice !!!. Ok head and average lacing. Tastes of coffee, toffee and whipped cream, pretty awesome balance and I think this is my dessert. Feels ok on the palate and finishes with a touch of burnt caramel.
