(Wells Brewing is out of England Added my Mike)
The second beer of Christmas is Wells Brewing’s Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale.
This beer has a great black-brown colour, hold it up to a light and light barely makes it through. The head is a nice tan colour though not very stable, it disappears very quickly and does not release the aroma of the beer very well.
The nose on the beer is a little weak but there is a pleasant tinge of sticky toffee bread pudding with a nice hint of prune.
The carbonation on this beer is incredibly fine, giving it almost a champagne texture. This is a very well balanced beer, a pleasant bitterness with nice fruitiness to balance. The toffee pudding flavour mixes well with the mealtimes that comes out as the beer sits on the tongue and the hops come out again on the end.
A very nice beer, perfect to slowly sip on a relaxing winter evening. I probably would not session it, the richness would be too much but this might be my beer on Christmas Day.
