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.

12 oz bottle, brought home especially for my wife (who likes dark beers, and the sticky toffee pudding we had while in England).
Pours clear, brown orange color with a foamy, tan head. Foam settles to a thin film, webbing of lace.
Smells quite sweet, caramel and toffee.
Taste is much the same, caramel, toffee, toasted malt. Mild amount of hop bitterness that keeps it from being overly sweet or cloying.
Lower level of carbonation gives a smooth mouth feel, medium body.
A unique concept, nice for an after dinner drink with (or instead of) a desset

Clear brown colored ale with a small tan colored head.

Smells very sweet the toffee and caramel are strong scents. Smelling this makes me think Brach's caramel candy. There is a little chocolate and vanilla in the scent. Little bit of a butterscotch scent.

Starts out bittersweet, toffee lingers on the tongue. Lots of toffee and butterscotch flavor along with a stout bitterness. That's about it.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall a try it once to see what it tastes like beer. It probably IS the #1 Bitter Toffee and Butterscotch flavored ale from Britain!

The toffee taste is not over the top, but it is rather strong. Enough to make you consider it after the first taste. If expecting a darker and heavier brew it may feel a little light. It is smooth and very drinkable. If you like a sweet toffee flavor, this is yours. For me, it was too much sweet-like flavor.

L: Brown amber, some head which leaves as quick as it comes.

S: Toffee, Caramel, Cream

T/F: Caramel and toffee, butterscotch?. Light feel thought would be heavy wish it was

O: I could see myself buying again, smells better then it taste which is not a bad thing though I expected more. More flavor, more feel to accompany the amazing aroma this had.
