On tap at BX Beer Depot’s CCB Tap Takeover. Maduro treatment. Light in flavor but packed with apples and tons of cinnamon. Not really balanced but a great novelty! Good job CCB

Tap at Cigar City. Pours like Maduro, but a big aroma and taste of apple pie and cinnamon. This is terrific.

On draft at CCB, pours a murky brown color with aromas of dried apples and a decent amount of cinnamon. This beer tasted likke the maduro beer with some light apple, and a decent dose of cinnamon thrown in. Interesting beer, just not the best treatment for the maduro.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Cigar City. Brown/dark amber pour, creamy tan head. nose is baked apple pie. Taste is spiced apple pie, caramel apple, with a better than average mouthfeel for a brown ale. I think this would hold up really well next to Funky Buddha’s Bonita Applebum.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Such an interesting brew. Nose is cinnamon apple jacks with tons of cinnamon spice and sweet apple aroma. Pour is marsh water brown. Off white head. The aroma would lead to a sweeter brown ale, but this one is spices up front, dry apples and oats, and a long dry finish. Not bad at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was a festive brew. Lots of spices in the nose - it smelled like apple cinnamon rice cakes. Apples were in the taste as well, but not as sweet. Finishing with light cinnamon and a silky, nutty body it is sure to please. If the taste was as intense as the nose though, it would be phenomenal.

Nose is fantastic. Huge apple pie, cinnamon, sweet malt, sugar, caramel apple. Flavor is hints of apple, big cinnamon melded with all the wonders of Maduro.

pours a hazy brown with a thin mocha head. Aroma is applesauce, this smells just like applesauce with cinnamon on top, very cool. Taste is more spice forward, spicy cinnamon with a finish of apples. Pretty light and easy to drink. I wouldn’t drink this every day but its very cool to try!
