Poured from bottle into English pub glass.

Dark amber brown color with a fast defuzing head.

Smell is largely of roasted malt

Taste has a small sweet roasted malt flavor with a large taste of bitter hops.

Feeling is unique, on the lower side of carbonation, which allows the alpha acids of the hops to create a citrus like tingle.

Overall This beer is easy drinking brown ale, but there is not to much the make it stand out about this brew.

Pours a beautiful caramel color with a finger of tight laced head.

Smells of slight burnt sugar and caramel sweetness.

Taste is not good. Bitter, acrid sugar. Like caramel burnt on the bottom of the pan. Not much going on, but whatever is going on, I'm not a fan of it.

Mouthfeel is a little thin for the style, on the watery side.

Overall, I'd never reach for this again.

Got this in a trade. I had trouble finding it on beer advocate, since it is really spelled
Eufor!a. Geez.

Anyway, poured nice int my pint glass. Big ass frothy head that you could float a bottle cap on it, as the dude from Sam Adams would say. I couldn't really smell much, but no offense, I don't smell very well. It lacks body, which I think really hurts this beer. I expected a little more malt balance in this on, but it's just not there. I pick up the toffee, a little coffee, vanilla, and then it just fades to nothing.

Smells very heavy, a malt scent with strong coffee, burnt nut flavor. It is a very cherry wood like color.

The head is pretty light with almost no lacing.

At first it has nutty, almost hazelnut flavor, that is complimented by a sweetness and then goes into light-roast coffee flavor. As it sits the burnt nuttiness takes over, and mellows out. Almost no spiciness, it is a dry, nutty beer. Probably suitable to pair with a meaty dinner with some salty potatoes or such.

It is pretty light, not too heavy, though not sweet and has a load of dry, roasted nuttiness.

A: A slightly muddy dark amber color, minimal head when poured normally.

S: Very sweet malt aroma, some slight hints of oak similar to a whiskey but almost no alcohol on the nose.

T: Sweet initially with definite hints of caramel and toffee, hence the name. Not really any darker malt flavors which is typical of a nut brown but this is confirmed by the beer’s lighter color.

M: Very light mouth feel, smooth. The beer also leaves a residual sweet taste in the mouth.

O: A unique twist on a nut brown. Color and malt body certainly trend more on the amber side which make the beer easy to drink and not too filling. It’s good to see smaller beers like DuClaw trying different offerings and trying to find their niche in the market.

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.
