Poured a dark brown color with aromas of oak, vanilla and a touch of earth. Flavors are the same with an oaky vanilla flavor light popcorn aftertaste, a nice beer overall.

Pours dark brown with a paper thin head. Aroma of vanilla, oak and maduro brown. Not bad. A little artificial. But crazy drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUN 7, 2012
On tap at the Black Squirrel in DC. Brown pour. Thin tan head. Aroma is heavy vanilla and caramel sweetness but not cloying. Flavor gives a nice vanilla kick up front but is balanced by some toasty bready notes and a good caramel presence. Nice beer.

dresden (848) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 22, 2012
On tap at rattle n hum cigar city tasting. Terrific vanilla, and cocoa aroma. First taste is a heavy Madagascar vanilla but then a wordiness takes in. Also a lot of roast malt, chocolate and coffee. Really rally nice, I prefer this quite a bit to the original.

Sample split with Pat in NYC. Pour was a dark brown, small tan head. Aromas of cinnamon raisin, vanilla, oak. Taste was chocolaty, french vanilla, cashews, clove spice, ultra sweet malts. Silky mouth that went down like water.

Think this was on tap at RNH as "vanilla porter". Poured dark brown, malty with vanilla and caramel, some light bitterness, a bit of sweetness, pretty good.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Draft. Pours a bruin body with a tan head and great retention. Very faint vanilla and mineral notes, light chocolate and roasted malt body. Dry and bitter with a very faint vanilla. I like that the vanilla is not sweet and cloying like i expected. My notes here are rather lacking but this was very quaffable and i ended up having seconds. Very nice.

I didnít take any notes on this because I assumed this was the Vanilla Aged Maduro. Iím still not convinced itís any different. For the time being, Iíll give it the same rating I gave the Vanilla Aged but dock it a few points on the overall for a lack of originality. I love most of the Maduro Browns, but the vanilla treatment for me is in a class of its own.

interesting French style authentic vanilla flavor yet still beery with a hop profile and malt. a moderate body and balance of cocoa the brew is a little syrup like and somewhat flat in the carbonation. a bit of a toasted wheatiness that seems almost nutty.
