My favorite DuClaw. I use to think Sweet Baby Jesus was their best but I think this is more enjoyable to more people. Great in every way.

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.

Pours much darker than I expected. Beautiful reddish highlights when held up to light. Very smooth mouth feel with tastes of toffee, carmel and nuts. Dries to a very light hops finish. Very easy to drink and one of the great brown ales.

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.
