Pours a clear brown red with a lively off-white foamy head. Aroma is roasted malt and honey. Taste is sweet with notes of burnt caramel, which is probably really the toffee. Nicely smooth with a bit of darkness. Not very hoppy at all. I could enjoy a sixer of this

This has some very sweet flavors and is almost like a sweet stout. If you are into that kind of thing this beer is for you.

Damico (2612) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2013
The brown ale pours hazy amber with a decent creamy white head. The aroma has pleasant sweet nutty malts, almost like fresh made fudge. The flavor starts out with a regular malty profile but delicious flavors of toffee fudgy and nutty malts come in nicely to settle on the palate. Body is carbonated well.

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Draft at brewpub. Pours dark brown with minimal tan head. Nose was earthy toffee, nuts, caramel malt. Tastes as it smells, with an overall pepped up nut brown ale profile.

12oz bottle courtesy of GT2/CaptCougar toffee and hazelnut almost dominate this beer, a bit of carmel sweetness shines through.. cool idea,

My favorite of DuClaw’s offerings. Nice nutty toffee flavor, touch of caramel makes it very sweet with just the right touch of bitterness. Goes down nice and smooth.

12oz bottle shared by Anndiesel. Filtered tan-brown body, steady thin off-white head. An OK brown at first..but it seems like it has some vanilla added, giving it that cream corn, cream ale taste too. Too candy sweet, not enough depth, hop balance, robustness ect. If they didn’t add anything I’m surprised. Does have some pleasant nutty tones.

jgb9348 (4771) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Nice clear strong ruby-tinted light amber coloured body with a deeper glow and a thick, four centimetre thick light brown head - nice. Aroma of light earth, nuts, malt, caramel and a hint of lactic scents. Medium-bodied; Assertive earthy and nutty malt with a lot of caramel, some light spices and a ton more nut flavours. Aftertaste quite complex with malt, caramel, toffee and then the nuts - peanuts, walnuts, cashews and a lot of earthy bite. Overall, a very pungent and relatively complex nut brown - this is what this style should be judged against - quite good and very nice to sample. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 24-October-2012 for US$1.79 sampled at home in Washington on 29-November-2012.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Toasted malty flavor with a quick finish.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a little bit of head. Aroma is sweet nuts and toffee with a very sugary taste. Not bad but not good.
