New Beer Friday! – Wells Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale

Wells Sticky Toffee Pudding

It’s kind of the 11th hour for sampling a new brew, so for this latest New Beer Friday I decided to go for a dessert beer. I’m already a huge fan of malty, caramel noted beers like marzens but Wells Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale takes it to the next level. It was a completely random selection but I seem to have stumbled on some kind of liquid gold

This offering from Wells pours a dark brown with about a finger or so of head. The scent is a very sweet caramel and you can pick it up from the moment the bottle is opened.

It has a rich and buttery mouth feel and from the first pull to the back-end, the caramel and toffee notes are solid and consistent. It leaves a slightly sweet aftertaste somewhat reminiscent of a Heath Bar.

Perfect when poured into a chilled Scandinavian quaffing mug, this is the epitome of a dessert beer.
