loads of coffee on the nose. Clean light brown color. Really nice lacing,some roasty notes on the nose as well. Flavor is upfront and maple syrup smoked complexity. Coffee starts with a creamy mid-palate that transfers to a pleasant grainyness and a hint of peanut shells. Sweet come finish. Overall by far the best nut brown I ever had.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Clear, deep-copper colored, with only a half-finger of head (despite a semi-aggressive pour); lacing was minimal.

S: Toasted grain, fresh-cut grass, and a hint of vanilla (surprising for a brown ale); I also detect some caramel notes.

T: Malt is a perfect mix of toasted grain and sweetness. There are some mild, fruit flavors in the middle (Granny-Smith apple comes to mind, but it's fleeting). Nutty flavor and toffee come through next, tempering things a bit. There's mild bitterness in the finish, perhaps weak for a brown ale, but enough for balance.

M: Moist, with good carbonation (I've had better); the middle was smooth and creamy, while the finish had a hint of dryness.

O: Very easy to drink, and very tasty -- sessionable by any standard. This one can hold its own with any brown ale I've had. It may not be the pinnacle of the style, but it's very good, and I'll certainly be buying more for future consumption.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a clear amber-brown hue with a 2-finger white head that slowly dissipates leaving a nice trail down the glass.

S: Malty aroma with a sweet toffee background.

T: Very smooth flavor that is more sweet than bitter – with a great toffee and roasted malt backbone.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: This is an excellent toffee nut brown ale. Very smooth flavor and aftertaste.

Rich. Very rich. And oh so smooth. Looked great in the glass, dark amber (almost black) but with golden highlights. Small head that lasted awhile. The toffee scent hits you as you raise the glass, begging you to taste it. The flavor is coffee, carmel, and sweet. Fantastic flavor, but I couldn't drink it on a regular basis. Excellent after-dinner drink.

Got this in the Rep your region IF. Pours with short head with no lacing and only a bit of retention. Aroma is nutty, toasty, biscuit, with some coffee. Flavor has a bit more roast and coffee with.a nice mild caramel sweetness. Really enjoyable. Coffee is a really nice complement to a bit of a mild nuanced nutty brown ale. Mouthfeel is nice and smooth. Fine carbonation. Happy the Growler held up so well.

Gingerbread Euforia on cask at Victoria Gastro Pub

A - The beer came to the table with no head, but it was filled to the tippy-top...darker shade of brown but it had some clarity to it...not much lacing to speak of

S - Gingerbread...and lots of it...I mean this smells like Christmas and fresh baked gingerbread cookies...there's a touch of caramel sweetness and roasted malt

T - Not much different than the nose...this one is all about the gingerbread...it's a liquified cookie in a glass...the sweetness never becomes overpowering because there is some roasted malt that lends a balancing hand to the gingerbread and caramel...a spicy-sweet finish

M - Medium bodied...seems a little flat...spicy-sweet finish

O - Wow, this was a winner...I haven't had the base Euforia but this was awesome...the addition of the gingerbread really added something...like I said this was Christmas/cookie in a glass

Reddish-brown in color with an orange hue and excellent clarity. Poured with a short off-white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap. Toffee, nuts and dark sweet malt aromas with molasses and vanilla. Smooth, creamy feel with refreshing carbonation and a clean finish. Toffee and molasses flavors up front with a bit of metallic edge. Nut flavors come through the middle as the sweet dark caramel malt backbones continues from beginning to end. A touch of spicy floral hop flavor near the finish as this finishes clean and dry.

Euphoria pours a brown color with a small lacing head. There is a nutty and toffee enriched aroma. The taste is creamy, sweet lots of nut flavors, finished with a sweet candy like toffee flavors. Good medium body, like no flavors are overpowering. Overall its a very nice rich and flavor Brown. Much underrated.
