3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
32 oz. growler poured at CCB via trade with smith4498- thanks, Jason! Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a finger-thick tan head that dissipates and leaves almost nothing. Aroma starts with a big hit of vanilla, a whole lot of it, with notes of roasted malts, brown sugar, and caramel. Very sweet smell that mellows as the glass goes down. I loved it. The flavor is no surprise after the aroma, plenty of vanilla, with roasted malts, brown sugar, and caramel, as well as some of the tobacco, nutty, and earthy notes that are much more noticeable in the regular Maduro. The body on this is way too thin and watery, though; with some carbonation and a thicker body, this could have been awesome. As it stands, the flavor starts with a punch of vanilla, gets progressively roastier, and then dies quickly and weakly because of the thin body. This could be because I had a growler shipped to me and it lost a little, but I drank it as quickly as I could after receiving it. Still a pretty cool beer, and I love vanilla and barrel-aged beers, so it’s right up my alley.

from a 32 oz growler.....pours dark brown some red specks and a medium frothy beige head. Aroma is full of oats and chocolate malt with a nice backbone of vanilla. Rich roasty coffee and chocolate, thin vanilla, and a burnt sugar finish. I enjoy the vanilla being more refined and not overpowering. Lots of creamyness and medium to thick mouthfeel.
