Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Baltimore-based DuClaw Brewing Company has introduced ‘Carob-Mel Sutra,’ a clever caramel twist on a bière de garde, or ‘beer for keeping’ ale. Carob-Mel Sutra is 10% ABV, and 100% smooth and sultry. Its full flavor profile is rich with notes of carob, caramel, chocolate and coffee. Whether you crack it open now or cellar it for later, it’s a round, sweet and malt-focused brew to enjoy. Indulge in this fun “ale-phro desiac” with someone special.
