look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz undated bottle served in a snifter.

Pours dark brown; clear with ruby highlights. Thin head soon reduces to a partial top coat and ring.

Aroma: roasted nuts and toffee with dark bread, but something like a tartness too and not nearly as pleasant as it should be.

Flavor: lots of toffee but about equally bitter and sweet.

Feel: Medium body and medium-light carbonation.

This is a cloudy dark brown with some translucency. The head (white) dissipates quickly. The flavour, though advertised as a toffee nut, there seems to be a whole lot more nut than toffee. The flavour is a whole lot of almonds, which is not really unpleasant but doesn't quite fit what I was looking for. The body is pleasant and the beer overall has a high drinkability.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

OVERALL a nice and nutty English Brown Ale that's drinkable, enjoyable, and a little sweet.

LOOKS a deep ruby dark tea brown.
SMELLS like sweet leather, milky hazelnuts, caramel, and malts. A chocolate toffee smell.
TASTE follows the nose with an emphasis on the caramel notes and the introduction of a toffee middle and a toasted marshmallow finish.
MOUTHFEEL is fairly smooth with a medium body and lively carbonation at the swallow.

On tap at Bel Air location. Not sure where its coming from, but Iā€™m getting hazelnuts in both the aroma and taste, on top of some caramel and toffee.. The whole thing comes off very sweet

Pours a light reddish brown with copious, off white head and solid lacing. Smells strongly of toffee, caramel, hazelnut and sweet roasted malts. Sweet malts forward, hint of hazelnut, caramel, mid to end not with well balanced introduction of hops and clean finish. Medium bodied with fair amount of carbonation to add astringency.
Well balanced brown ale with hints of nut and toffee, sweet without being saccharine ā€“ not a novelty beer ā€“ smooth and balanced ā€“ almost sessionable in its drinkability and pleasant qualities.

A- dark red with mahogany colors. @ finger fluffy head that leaves a nice valley lacing on the pint. somewhat opaque but light does get through.

S- sweet toffee malts with brown sugar and a nutty hop.

F- sweet nutty and toffee flavors come through. caramel and smokey flavor on the end.

M- chewy but smooth and easy to put down. The flavors complement each other well in this beer.

O- a good nut brown ale...they are hard to come by but this one is worth it.

On a roll w a few sweet and winter warming beers...

Could be DuClaw's best? Try 1.

A Too small, an off white head on a clear mahogany-with walnut stain colored body. A ring of retention and slight lace.

S Bright, nutty, candy shop, sweet toffee and rich caramel. Confectionary. A bit of char / smoke.

T Starts sweet malt up front, follows smell, with a slight grassy /char / smokey flavor in the middle. Finishes with more caramel sweet malt and a bit of spicy hops. Too sweet for my palate.

M Medium body moderate carbonation and a sweet finish. Too sweet again.

D Great aroma with a slightly too sweet flavor, levened with a grassy character

Single 12 ounce bottle bought in Virginia, on to the beer:

This light amber brown beer rests below a rocky head which whips its foam around the glass, but still retains very well. I smell something sweet, and it's not the brownies that I baked. I smell toffee, dry roasty goodness, and hazelnut. While the aroma is upfront, the taste is a little milder in comparison. Still, I get the appetizing toffee and hazelnut notes, and a slightly sweet and dry aftertaste. It's medium bodied, soft and easy going down.

Euforia is just that when I drink it. Oh, spell check tells me it's euphoria.....

12 oz bottle

Pours a lighter shade of tan, minor khaki cap leaving some strands of lacing.

Nutty and toffee notes on the sniff.

Light nuts and toffee again. Also milk chocolate and vanilla.

On the thinner side body wise

Decent enough, but nothing overly impressive....drinkable and enjoyable brown ale

Pours a brown color with copper edges and a finger of off-white head. The nose is sweet and nutty. The flavor profile is bready with a touch of sweetness. The body is spot on for the style.
