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.

Fantastic at proper temperature. Aroma is caramel, with brown sugar overtones. Flavor is a good balance of dark toffee, caramel, with a hint of vanilla. Not overtly sweet; has a nice crisp finish, with a final hint of mild bitterness that lingers deliciously.

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!

Almost heaven in a bottle. Rich brown. Caramel and toffee blast not to sweet or sugary. A delicious treat on a good desert beer. Fairly smooth in drinking this beer.

Very tasty beer. Toffee is very dominant. Sweet flavor. Smooth and fairly light feel.

I'll be generous: nice aroma, interesting taste, drank in bath tab with nice girl and salami. I can't give it bad mark)

A bit too sweet, but tasty. I might drink it again. It's a basic ale with flavor. At first taste it is pretty good, but the aftertaste does linger.

Sticky Toffee Pudding Addle has a butterscotch pudding aroma and taste with a malty ending and very lightly carbonated mouthfeel. It's quite nice, though I think I like Wells' Banana Bread a little bit more.

Had from the bottle, Madison's Hoboken, NJ

A: the weakest area here, it's a watery looking brown ale, not ugly but you may get worried without tasting it. S: amazing. Burnt brown sugar, smells like the classic dessert. T: love it! It really tastes like a toffee brown ale. Sweet but so good. Didn't feel too artificial to me. F: velvety, so crushable. Deadly in a way, it was almost too easy to drink. O: for you sweet tooths, like me, this is a dream come true. It's an awesome dessert beer that qualifies as a real treat. I recommend it.

Nice body with a beautiful caramel color. Not overwhelmingly sweet-with hints of butterscotch. Essence of caramel and hunts of banana with a tiny hop finish. Delicious-would drink more than one.
