Can to glass. Pours a medium to deep brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is absolutely fantastic! Filled with coffee, chocolate, touch of vanilla, with a nice toasty backbone. Flavor is a bit less potent, and has more focus on the brown ale toastiness with a slight vanilla finish. Over a very well balanced and delicious beer. Thanks Eric!

Awful beer, if you can call it that. Taste is overpowering vanilla, sugar, really filthy. Not more than a cheap novelty, this should be given a wide, wide berth. Ugly artwork completes the job.

Deep mahogany color out of the can with a thin beige head. Nose of chocolate covered coffee beans. Big coffee flavor with lots of chocolate notes, vanilla and a bit of ash in the finish. This is a big, sweet coffee beer.

Looks like black coffee, has the taste of coffee, but with a fuller richer body. I love the Maduro from CC, and flavor wise it’s that with intense coffee flavor, which was delicious, but why not just drink a cup of Joe? Worth a try, but I preferred the Maduro. On tap at House of Brews Ft. Myers Beach, FL.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can (12 oz). Extra from Joe(?), thanks!
Appearance: Reddish brown with a medium easy to revive than head and little lacing.
Aroma: Vanilla, espresso coffee, vegetal notes and caramel notes.
Taste: Medium sweetness (borderline cloying). Espresso beans with vanilla, vegetal notes, caramel and light coffee bitterness.
Palate: Light to medium body, but borderline watery at times. Medium carbonation. Espresso beans and vegetal lingering finish.
Overall: Decent Brown Ale, but too much on the sweet side. The base beer lacks character and is almost completely hidden by the adjuncts. Low to moderate drinkability.

If you have not had this beer and you like brown ales... Go find or trade for it because you are missing out. Perfect amount of coffee in this beer and it is delicious. Coffee, Cocoa, Vanilla.

Tasted on 1/13/12 from a bottle. Pours cloudy dark brown with an orange tint and an average tan head that leaves decent lace. The nose is burnt bitter coffee, peanut butter, and dark chocolate. The flavor is peanut butter and chocolate up front, moving to the dark roasted, burnt coffee bitterness. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter coffee and peanut butter finish.

The aroma was not as big as the taste as far as the coffee goes. Delicious beer! Nice refreshing lighter body.
