3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Now that the weather is getting milder, stop what your doing and pick up a 6 pack of this ale. Very dark appearance, with a taste that would complement any bold cigar, as the name states. Just delicious. P.S. Dangit I rated the wrong one, this was for the regular maduro brown.

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

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.

Re-entering older ratings. Base reste la Maduro qui a déjà été détaillée dans mon autre revue pour cette dernière.
Rajout de myrtille est parfois délicat dans la bière, surtout selon le style utilisé. Cette baie se donne parfaitement dans cette bière brune rajoutant un aspect fruité sauvage où l’on reconnait de suite la myrtille. Facile à boire comme l’est en général la Maduro.

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.

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.

Draft. Pours a bruin body with a tan head and light head retention. Bitter sweet up front, hints of coffee, oats, malty caramel and light sweetness. I was really looking for the blueberries they were very faint and light in the finish. I was surprised because a lot of other CCB treatments are much more prevalent. Still a good beer.
