Second to rate again... I hate you Danny :). There really is nothing I can say about this other than it is delicious and amazing and I wish I could bath in it. It is very sweet to the mouth, caramel and maybe a bit nutty. The taste just keeps going and going. An absolute dream.

Nice brown pour. Aroma is insane. Tea, coffee, tons of sticky caramel, coconut and more. Flavor, wow...just wow. A ridiculous mix of mate, caramel, cocoa, coconut and a perfectly light bitter finish. What a flavor. Incredible!

11/18/10. First to rate! On tap. Cloudy brown pour with a small khaki head. AMAZING spiced caramel aroma with hints of chocolate. Sweet fresh caramel flavor with a bitter herbal aspect on top of light chocolate and coffee. This. Is. Amazing.

Draft at RnH for the Cigar City Smokes NYC event. Pours dark, hazy brown body with reddish tint, no head, and no lacing. Light aroma. Explosion of flavor packed tightly into a ver thin palate. Notes of caramel, chocolate, and coffee.

Poured up on tap at the Cigar City Tasting room with mahogany body and garnet like hues and holding up a tan head. The aroma is sweet malts, sweet nuttiness and caramel and then it begins to emit a thin layer of burnt malts and a sense of vanilla. The taste hits first with caramel followed by sweet malts and a firm sweet nuttiness. Around midway I get a bit of drying malt roastiness then a sense of slightly burnt malts as well as chocolate malts. This beer has big flavor and maintains a sessionable heft.

Tap at Rattle n Hum Cigar City. Pours a deep brown pour with a red hue. Great aroma of dark chocolate, oak, and butterscotch. Flavor is coffee, Werther’s Original, walnuts, and dirt. Sticky sweet caramel lingers in the background. One of the better treatments of an already awesome Maduro Brown.

PhillyCraft (2845) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2012
On draught at Cigar City day RNH. Pour was a murky brown color with tiny head and lacing. Aromas is oak, molasses, butterscotch, and bitter cocoa. Taste is malty with notes of vanilla, nuts, and caramel. Smooth as can be. Nice addition to the other maduros.

gkost (1714) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Pours brown with no head. Nose is big caramel and toasted grains. Flavor is huge sweet thick carmel with hints of roast and earthiness. Very nice. Not too sweet, but enough to get the caramel across without it being cloying.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Draft. Pours a bruin body with an off white head. Cream soda sweetness, light and silky body. Vanilla and caramel with a light candy soda finish. A decent spin on the maduro just a tad sweeter then i’d like it.

BrewBoxer (1764) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Draft at rattle n hum. Pours a deep blackk color. Thin head. Smells of coffee, toffee and sugar. Taste is flat with carmel and malt. Almost like a stout but not quite. Pretty good
