Very toffee forward. Nice sweet and malty and certainly something I would get again if I was in the area. That said of all the DuClaw beers, I had on my trip, this is the one that did not blow me away. (203 characters)

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, cloudy brown color, with some reddish highlights that sparkles in the light. The head pours two fingers of oatmeal colored foam that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of wispy clouds that barely covered the entire top of the beer.

Aroma: Very complex. Malty and bready up front, followed by tons of spice: cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, burnt orange peel, toffee. Finally, there are floral notes of clover and honey.

Taste: Not as strong as the aroma, but very good nonetheless. Very malty, yet very nutty too. The beer isn’t as sweet as its aroma, but there’s a looong finish of caramelized sugar and toffee, as well as some very subtle hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Effervescent with a lot of carbonation. With an ABV of 5.0%, there is there’s virtually no alcohol presence on the palate.

Overall: This is a very good brown ale, and unlike any other brown ale that I’ve had. Instead of being either malt of hop forward, it’s very nutty and toffee-like, even more than some nut brown ales that I’ve had. Very, very good. I’ll certainly be getting this again. (1,141 characters)

DuClaw "Euforia" Toffee Nut Brown Ale
12 oz. brown glass bottle, "BOTTLED 09/03/14"

I'm glad to see that some brewers are still trying to keep the brown ale style alive; and this one is actually slightly unique.

It's a standard nut brown ale, although perhaps slightly darker than you might expect. It offers a nutty, very lightly chocolatey malt; and in this case, and actual toffee (slightly buttery, nutty and caramelish) component. It's got a median bitterness; and a smooth body. Some caramel lingers in the finish at first, but it eventually dries and some very low-level hops appear.

Even for those who normally avoid dark beers, I think they might still find this accessible. It's remarkably easy to drink, and for those who are looking for a little more flavor in their beer, it's still here. Nicely done. (817 characters)
