Notes / Commercial Description:
Two of the things Britain is renowned for across the globe are traditional ale and puddings. Following the success of Wells Banana Bread Beer comes the latest addition to the exquisitely crafted Wells ales range – Wells Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale.

Wells has been using age-old traditional brewing methods to perfect its ales since 1876 and Wells Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale is made to those same exacting standards. It is brewed with our own accredited Natural Mineral Water and the choicest English ingredients. As a result, it delivers all the satisfying, complex taste you’d expect from a true beer but with a unique, indulgent twist.

Using traditional British desserts as our source of inspiration, we discovered that the natural, rich flavours of Sticky Toffee Pudding could be exquisitely combined with darker malts to create a truly distinctive ale. With toffee and caramel hints and rich fruit aromas, Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale is an intensely satisfying beer.

From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter. This decent English brown ale pours a
medium dark murky brown with a very nice head of off white foam that
settles to a thick ring, thin pooling layer, and displays some excellent lacing.
nose of nutty malts and toffee with touches of brown sugar. Flavors are
pretty much a let down from the nose with muted toffee and subtle cream
with touches of weak brown sugars and a more assertive hop that was
not detectable on the nose which is odd for an English ale from such a
great brewery. Very effervescent mouth feel; medium light body, medium
high carbonation that is bubbly, and a seltzer water like finish.

Overall, a decent brown but outside the norm for the style.

A - Medium raisin colored pour with toffee colored lacing.

S - Sugary candied toffee and caramel cream aroma.

T - Starts with a quick hit of candied caramel toffee cream which quickly gives way to some delicate roast bitterness that carries through until the end. Ends with mild bitterness, some dark fruit, and a hint of caramel toffee and some sugary cloying on the very back of the tongue. Some light earthiness.

M - Medium body.

O - Glad to have tried once.

Poured from just over room temp. Pours a nice brown with good head. Nose is pretty spot on - toffee pudding! That's pretty much all I get, other than chocolate. Taste is not quite what I expected. A bit bitter up front, with a weak toffee pudding flavor. Kind of like a weak burnt brown sugar, but bitter. Could definitely be sweeter and thicker. Higher ABV would have done wonders. Mouthfeel is light and a bit watery. Overall, not horrible.

Nice color, no head or retention to speak of. Taste is fair. Toffee flavor is there, but not balanced at all. Slightly sharp finish, which I would not have expected. Should have seen maltier and sweeter. Overall, only fair.

Pours a nice dark brown with mild head and sticky lacing. Nose is toffee, caramel, brown sugar. The taste follows the nose, my only issue is I am getting a real harsh bitterness that lasts and is killing the beer. The flavors seem ok but I am getting a terrible burnt overtone that sort of ruined this one.

Charles Wells "Wells Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale"
330ml brown glass bottle, "Best before... 20/04/18..."
$2 @ Weis, Conshohocken, PA

Look: Clear dark russet brown and orange body beneath a two finger thick head of densely creamy khaki colored foam. Excellent head retention and very good lacing.

Smell: Clean. Caramel sugars. Sweet bread. Yeasty character with a touch of fruit.

Taste: As the aroma suggests but fuller. Not too rich though, although bit sweet. Some vanilla that wasn't found in the nose. Moderate bitterness. Surprisingly dry in the finish given the sweetness that's there upfront.

Feel: Medium-light in body and smooth with a moderate, fine-bubbled carbonation.

Overall: Going beyond a dessert beer, where it would clearly work, it's a bit sweetish but you could enjoy one at any time. Two in a row might be stretch unless you've got a bit of a sweet tooth, but at the very least it's interesting.
