thanks to solan for sharing! Chocolatey nose, caramel malts with hints of coffee. Pours a brown amber with a thin white head. Chocolate and caramel with coffee notes, dark fruits, with just a hint of blueberry in the finish.

Draft. Pours a murky brown with minimal off white head. Aroma is literally a straight up blueberry muffin. Bready, doughy with a residual sweetness in the nose. Taste is freaking awesomeness. Wow. I can taste the passion. Literally can taste the slightly crusty top if a muffin.

Dark pour with ruby highlights. Aroma has chocolate, nuts, some light fruit and raisins with a touch of sugar cookie. Flavor is sweet and roasted malts, balanced but light. Not a punch of blueberry but it is noticable. Pretty good but I would have liked to see more blueberry pancake type flavor, for me. But for what it is, great effort.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2010
On tap at CCB. Pours a hazy dark brown with reddish highlights and a tan head that settles slowly. Aroma is lightly roasted and malty with light notes of blueberry and familiar maduro aromas -- caramel, toffee, honey, chocolate, and light coffee. Flavor is also lightly roasted and malty with notes of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and toffee along with more subtle notes of nuts, cream, grain and smoke. Very faint berry and bluberry notes. Generally medium body with a pleasing lightly roasted malty finish. Nice beer, but the blueberries didnt come through as strong as I imagined they would.

tap at blind tiger - oatmeal raisin cookie, doughy malts, hint of fruits.. not much of blueberry though. pretty sweet, some nuttiness, aromatic but not all that fruity, IMO.

gkost (1710) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Pours hazy brown with hints of red. Nose is roasted grain, sweet malts and vinous and sweet hints of ripe and unripe blueberry hidden away in the back end. Flavor is pretty much maduro, toasty grain, bold roast with very little trace of the fruit. Although it does come through in the end as a subtle tartness.

Tap at Blind Tiger. I was convinced this was just regular Maduro. Delicious oatmeal brown with plenty of chocolate malt and no blueberry to be found. Tons of roast and no blueberry. I mean, itís very good, but the treatment itself didnít add anything. Cigar City is still the king of oatmeal browns!

MeadMe (1309) - Riverview, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2010
On tap at the brewery. A: Pours a dark blackish brown hue with a nice tall creamy head. Nice retention and some lace. S: Just the aromas of regular maduro. Chocolate and coffee mostly with hints of malty sweetness. T: Flavor mostly regular maduro. There is a hint of earthy sweetness not found in regular maduro which must be the result of the berries. No real blueberry flavor though. M: Medium in body, smooth slick mouthfeel. D: Pretty good, not much different than the regular maduro.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a chestnut brown color with some reddish hue and topped by a small, foamy tan colored head that leaves tiny spots of lace behind. The aroma is pretty typical for the base Maduro with roasted cocoa and caramel malt to with hints of flaked oats, and some subtle blueberry sweetness in the back. The flavor follows suit with the roasted cocoa and caramel malt base with hints of nuts and smooth oats. The blueberries are noticeable on the backend lending an earthy tartness to everything. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel that leads to an earthy, crisp finish. The blueberries were subtle, but added some nice flavor and earthiness to this treatment. Nice, tasty session brown ale.
