DuClaw's sweet beers are very popular, but I've only thought they were OK. Tonight I tried Dirty Little Freak, their brown ale brewed with coconut, caramel, and chocolate. I like this beer a lot more than I thought I would. It pours caramel brown, the head leaves a persistent, creamy lace. The aroma is nutmeg and cinnamon over top of that coconut and chocolate mentioned on the label. The coconut comes through in the flavor, strong, sweet, and toasted. There is something like oak in the background, too.
