3.56/5 rDev -0.3%
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.

2.75/5 rDev -23%
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.

A - Two fingers worth rich airy light khaki colored head that start perfectly level before turning a bit rocky... Solid retention ultimately yields to a rich creamy head... The color is a light to medium brown with a slight reddish hue... Loaded with small bubbled sluggish to moderate paced carbonation... A very inviting English Brown Ale...
S - Lightly roasted malts... Fuggle hops... A bit nutty... A slightly burnt / charred aroma... Some slight sweetness in the form of caramel and toffee... Solid text book aroma for the style...
T - Barley... Nutty... Caramel... Toffee... Not overly sophisticated...
M - On the lighter side of medium bodied... Perhaps a bit thin... A slightly chalky texture... Solid carbonation... A bit creamy...
D - A very solid respectable English Brown Ale... Lots of flavor and character for 4.8% ABV... I could enjoy a couple of these in a sitting even if it is a slightly above average English Brown Ale...

poured into a 23-ounce pilsner glass at DuClaws at BWI airport. Also had previously in growlers.
A: nice coffee brown color with two-finger foamy head that lasts a long time. Lacing lasts a long time also.
S: heavy sweet maple and toffee tones
T: smooth strong toffee, malt and roasted coffee flavors. No bitterness at all.
M: heavy, thick, sweet, very little carbonation - good mouthfeel
O: an outstanding beer that I strongly recommend. Go out of my way to grab one at BWI whenever I have time.
