3.7/5  rDev +3.6%

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a pint glass. The beer pours a clear chestnut hue with multiple streams of carbonation rise to the surface.
An eggshell white head of 5 cm foams up into a huge fluffy mushroom top of foam even with the gentlest of pours.
Aroma is some grainy malt and a bit of cocoa powder plus some rich nutty notes with hints of earthy hops in the background. Fairly mild nose overall, but not offensive in anyway.
First sip reveals an average body with mild spacious carbonation and a smooth texture.
The beer is easy to drink and would be great for sessioning. I get the same grainy malt and mild cocoa on the flavor with some toffee and with a bit of earthy and slightly bitey hops.

This is a well crafted example of a difficult style to brew. SImple yet interesting, quite a nice beer that I would enjoy again with friends.

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.

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...
