Dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor explodes with chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and caramel. Creamy mouth feel. Excellent beer!

Taste at PilsnerPeter’s 2nd Annual Gathering
Transparent tan, white head. Largely ashy roast, unpleasant in the nose, also light pepper and caramel malt. The strong, sweet flavor definitely improves on the nose, heavy malt in the flavor, some coconut, chocolate, and more malt. Larger profile than most browns, sweeter than most browns, but also more hefty, the body really helping keep the elements together. Enjoyable once i got past the nose.

Tsotsi (178) - Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Pours brown with a tan head. Nose is full of coffee, vanilla, and some caramel as well. Flavor is full of dark coffee, nutty, and caramel and bitterness at the end. Great twist to the original Maduro and absolutely love this beer. Wish they would bottle it on a constant basis.

This one totally blew me away. It reminded me more of an espresso shot then a beer. The aroma was all coffee bean and nut. The flavor was smooth with chocolate notes. Cigar City can do no wrong.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2011 slightly lucent mahogany, thin and short-lived tan head, med-body, med- high co2.

aroma and taste are all coffee, stale medium-roast drip coffee. there are subtle notes of malt and hops submerged in the background, otherwise i would think this is a coffee soda like Manhattan Special. I will say that it is better than most beers i’ve had with real coffee in them.

Tap at Capone’s. Pours out a clear moderate brown color with no real head. Heavy coffee notes on the aroma with a touch of some cream and light vanilla. Taste is straight up like a cup of strong, good coffee, some nutty roasty notes play in there also with a light touch of cream. If this were readily available, I’d be hard pressed to not have one of these with breakfast often.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2010
Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of chocolate, malt, roasting, and a hint of vanilla. Poured very deep amber/brown in color with a small, creamy, dense, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of coffee, piney hops, cream, and light malt. Medium body. Thin texture becomes slightly dry. Average carbonation. Coffee and chocolate finish. Tastes like a very good cup of coffee.

hopdog (8777) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2010
On tap. Poured a deeper brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of vanilla, light roast and lighter coffee. Tastes of vanilla, caramel, lighter roast and lighter coffee. Thinner body. I want more coffee out of my coffee beers!

Growler tasting at home. Wow, what a great brown ale. The coffee addition to their base beer really makes a world of difference. I had the chance to try the espresso right next to the base (maduro brown) beer due to two great traders, thanks guys! The base beer is good, but this bad boy is great. My only complain was the thin palate... I would have preferred a creamier, more full bodied experience. But the flavor profile, head, (nose especially!) were all very good. If you like coffee and like beer, you’ll love CC’s espresso.
