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.

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.

S: Toffee, hazelnut, bread crust, very slight roast.

L: Crystal clear, amber brown, some head that dissipates quickly.

T: Strong milk chocolate and toffee notes. Medium low bitterness leading to a sweet candy lik toffee flavor with a touch of roast. Finishes fairly clean with a touch of nuttiness.

M: Medium light body, medium carbonation, a little bite to it.

Meh, flavors taste a little artificial. Not bad overall, i guess i prefer more nuanced flavors.

This is a tumbler-glass serving of DuClaw's newest release, Euphoria, a toffee nut brown ale. It was served on Pint Club member's preview night.

Appearance: The ale has a nice deep brown color and a smallish ring of head that doesn't last too long.

Smell: Rich toffee and butterscotch malt aromas emerge from the beer.

Taste: The ale has some incredible flavors. There are toffee, butterscotch, chocolate. All of which layer together to make a very nice taste. I tried to place the taste and finally realized that it's flavors resemble Young's Double Chocolate Stout.

Mouthfeel: The nuttiness is quite tasty. I had two pints myself.

Drinkability: Good drinkability, although the flavors could get too intense. I brought home a growler, I liked it so much.
