Draft. nitro. Pour is dark brown. Small off white head. Some chocolate and roast, vanilla, in the nose. Taste is lightly roasty, creamy, some chocolate, slight vanilla flavor. Ok. Vanilla is a nice addition but seems to thin out the beer just a touch.

Aurelius (4121) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Big stiff head on a clearish chestnut beer. Sweet, choconilla, earthy malt aroma. Woody, sweet, tannic, strong vanilla tones. Woody aftertaste, but the vanilla starts to cling. Usual Maduro body. On tap, Proof Production Facility w/PorterPounder.

chinchill (1799) - South Carolina, USA - APR 18, 2014
On tap at Kickbacks in Jacksonville. (from May 2011 notes) A - essentially opaque with mahogany highlights. Has a thin bubbly tan head. S - Sweet aroma with a clear but not too strong vanilla note; hint of milk chocolate. T - Largely follows the aroma, but the vanilla is too dominant and the beer is too sweet. Roasted malt and oatmeal are detectable. M - Near medium body but too thin for style. Would also be better with a slight increase in carbonation. O - Disappointing: I prefer the regular Madura.
