3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
aroma is standard maduro with perhaps a hint of fruit. quite subtle if at all existent. appearance is cloudy near opaque, no blue hue present if you were wondering. flavor is long sticky chocolate finish, ultra fleeting fruit makes an appearance briefly. not alot here beyond the base beer which is a bit soured with tartness, a pointless endevour.

Tap at Blind Tiger.
Almost identical to the normal Maduro. Nice nutty aroma with roasty malts and chocolate, medium bodied and very smooth. We left the beer out for quite a bit to warm up and eventually picked up some very faint blueberry notes.

Growler courtesy of Ibrew2or3. Thought I missed this one then found it in my back log...score! Poured a hazy amber color with an average sized egg shell head. Nose is malty with touches of roast, chocolate, nuts, maybe a mild frutiness but Iím not sure if I would be able to distinguish this from the base beer by smell. Medium body with ample carbonation. Flavor is Maduro, I really donít get any blueberry maybe a faint tartness.

Pours a lite brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is coffee beans and roasted malts. Taste is regular maduro with blueberry notes. Palate is light mouthfeel. Overall another solid brew

Draft at cigar city brewing. pours a dark brown. has the good nutty normal maduro aroma. perhaps a hint of blueberry in there but it isnít strong. The flavor on the other hand was disappointing, the first time iíve been disappointed by one of cigar cities brews. it begins as well as the regular maduro, but the sweet, fruity blueberry finish is just not for me. blueberry fans will probably enjoy it, but i did not.

Aroma is heavy with tobacco, a little spicy hops and bready malts. Appearance: auburn body and thin white head. Taste: smoky tobacco that is smooth all the way through, but makes it a little too one note. Palate. Thin with clean finish.
Had this at hops and pie during GABF special tap takeover by Cigar City

Thanks to SoLan for sharing. Nice brown color with a beige head. Nose is full of dark coffee and roasty malts with a slight blueberry aroma. Flavors are sweet, full of coffee and chocolate. Get the blueberry on the finish and it does over power the beer. Mouthfeel is creamy, medium bodied. Very nice beer.

Poured from a can, this is a great brown ale with lingering notes of coffee, malts and chocolate. Easily enjoyable in any setting where caramelized malts that are roundeed out with hints of tobacco and leather are desired. This is a fantastic session beer.

Buttery toffee and caramel on the nose. Short on the finish, but it is clean. For being malt forward, it isnít too sweet.
