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.

12 ounce bottle. Cherry red, brown liquid with a small beige head. Light nutty toasted malt nose. Tart toasted malt flavor hints at pecans and apples. Light body and flavor. Some butterscotch in mid-taste and finish.

Great brew, not too heavy, not too light. Just right. One of Duclaw’s best.

reggiedunlop (3218) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Pours a hazy brown/amber with a medium tan head. Aroma has some dark fruit, booziness, and an odd magic marker smell. Flavor is nutty with earthy/bitter hop notes and a mild metallic taste...some fruitiness...nothing like it is billed to be. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with an earthy/roasty finish.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep amber/gold with a big, foamy heady. Aroma is all sweetness. Taste is like...well, nut toffee. Super sweet but not cloying. Probably the most spot-on toffee taste i’ve ever had in a beer. Though even a 12oz makes me feel like i’m getting diabetes.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle. A candy brew that smells and tastes delightful, though it’s borderline cloying, and leaves the mouth feeling quite sticky. The maple, brown sugar, and nut (cashew?) notes play well together. For a sweet brown, it’s really enjoyable.

DrSilverworm (6946) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2012
12oz bottle, thanks to my parents for picking this up. Good toffee / hazelnut aroma. Light nuttiness. Nice sweet taste, in a good way. Good sweet toffee hazelnut aftertaste. Good crisp lighter carbonation, medium body. Clear light brown / amber color, nearly no head. Interesting, but merely OK brown

Poured this beer from a regular bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a light brown-dark copper color with an average, foamy tan head that had average retention and cling, but good lacing. It had a malty nut and caramel aroma with some earthy tones, a bit of sugar, and light toffee. The taste was a malty caramel and nut blend along with a slight grainy earth effect. The body was fairly thin and airy, and was somewhat dry, with low to average carbonation.
