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.

Poured an amber brown with a thick light brown, creamy head that lasts a while and leaves no lacing. Smells warm and of toffee, malt and some roasted nuts. Taste is great with the toffee coming through at first then the roasted nuts and some hint of hops to a finish that doesn't linger. Very smooth and light feel. Overall great beer.

DuClaw "Euforia" Toffee Nut Brown Ale
12 oz. brown glass bottle, "BOTTLED 09/03/14"
$1.79 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

I'm glad to see that some brewers are still trying to keep the brown ale style alive; and this one is actually slightly unique.

It's a standard nut brown ale, although perhaps slightly darker than you might expect. It offers a nutty, very lightly chocolatey malt; and in this case, and actual toffee (slightly buttery, nutty and caramelish) component. It's got a median bitterness; and a smooth body. Some caramel lingers in the finish at first, but it eventually dries and some very low-level hops appear.

Even for those who normally avoid dark beers, I think they might still find this accessible. It's remarkably easy to drink, and for those who are looking for a little more flavor in their beer, it's still here. Nicely done.

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.

A: Pours a clear medium brownish amber in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation and hints of ruby red highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy light beige head that reduces to a large patch of medium thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of toasted + roasted malts, toffee, and nuts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of toasted and roasted malts with light to moderate amounts of toffee sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of nuts and just a hint of earthy hops. Minimal amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades quickly.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Overall this beer is flavored as advertised but is not overly sweet, which I was worried about. Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and pretty enjoyable.
