3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler, courtesy SoLan. Pours a clear chestnut brown color with reddish highlights. A small, frothy, bubbly tan head leaves wet micro-spots of lacing on the glass. The nose is not too far off from the base Maduro, showing notes of rich cocoa and caramel malt, with hints of flaked oats and hints of nuts. Blueberry comes across as a faint, generic, fruity sweetness, not very prominent at all. Flavors follow suit, again based in coco-caramel malt, showing soft roast and smooth, soothing oats. The berries lend a softly tangy, mainly sweet fruit element. Medium bodied, with a silky, moderately carbonated mouthfeel, the palate lends itself to sessioning. I found this one to be tasty, but the added sweetness detracts a bit from the rock solid base beer.

Tap at BT. Pours a nice deep woody brown with a nice white head. Aroma is blueberry muffins/pancake, slight syrupy fakeness to it with some nutty chocolate hints. Flavor is dusty chocolate, nutty, berry fruitiness, mineral, blueberry, light earthy note, dry finish with leather mineral and paper on the tongue. Ok.

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.

Poured at Fruit in the Room, a brown ale that has coffee, oats, chocolate, nuts, and blueberry aromas. Taste mimics aromas, but not as much blueberry I was hoping for.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

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.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
