look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark coppery pour with a dark beige, thin, whispy head that was opaque in the vessel. No lacing, some signs of carbonation around the edges.

S: Aroma of dry scotch and caramel, spicy with some fruity sultanas and strong indications of rootbeer candy. Some sugar-rum coffee additions.

T: Deep caramelized sweetness, peat with a light smokiness, originally mistook this for a scotch ale at first. Sweet figs and raisins with a touch of honey-munich sweetness. Toasty buttered oak, hazelnut coffee with some butterscotch sweetness. Lastly there is some sweet cola and rootbeer twang on the finish.

M: Buttery creamy, mid-heavy thickness, that was softly carbonated.

O: Overall a sweetly caramelized malting similar to a scotch ale, a sweet brown ale that may be a bit much in multiples but is interesting for a take.

12 oz bottle poured into a Savor tulip.

Pours nearly pitch black with a half finger of mocha foam that barely fits into the glass. Aroma is an artificial sweet vanilla and caramel flavor with maybe a touch of coconut.

The first sip is surprisingly thin bodied with a harsh fake sweetner flavor. There is a bit of a metallic twinge on the finish with a lingering aftertaste. I would have really preferred this beer to have delivered the sweetness with a higher finishing gravity rather than whatever they did here. The coconut flavor is very dominant, but there really isn't much else to balance things out.

I'm usually a pretty big fan of the bottled Duclaw beers, but this one misses the mark for me.

Pours a handsome deep amber with an off white head. Good clarity to the beer and the head sticks nicely to the edges of the glass.
Aroma of hops, malt sweetness, dark bread and vanilla. As it warms more cocoa comes out. A very dessert like nose.

The taste is like a cream soda in beer form, but more. Chocolate, molasses, caramel, hazlenut and coconut flavors make for one delicious beer. Just enough piney hops to keep this boat out of cloying bay. With that being said this is a sweeter beer. Kind of a novelty beer, but also, kind of delicious.

Medium bodied, smooth feel. There is a medium-high level of carbonation. Dessert type flavors linger on with a small bitterness.
Overall, this is another interesting beer from DuClaw. Brewed with roasted malt, chocolate, coconut and caramel, how they worked together was pretty impressive. This is another winner from this brewer from Baltimore,MD and definitely a good craft gateway beer.
