Surprisingly good. Aged on vanilla beans instead of jus vanilla added and you can tell. The vanilla flavor is infused throughout the beer. It's not subtle but its not nearly as overpowering as I expected. Not a huge maduro fan, but this was good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (5446) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Fermentation Lounge - on tap. Dark brown pour, nice active nitro induced pour, thick khaki colored head. Aroma has some nice toffee notes, a hint of chocolate. Flavor is nice and mellow with some definite vanilla sweetness, some bittersweet chocolate mixed in and a hint of biscuit-like sweetness. Mouthfeel is a bit thinner than expected.

Tap at CCB. Smell a great amount of vanilla. Pours nice brown with some head that is off white. Taste vanilla, oak, hops, and mild wood. This is a smooth beer because of the nitro and it is very drinkable.

Maduro is good but needs a kick to amp up the flavors. Vanilla is a good choice, adding a creamy flavor and a milky effect on the tongue. Nice one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mixmasterob (883) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Hunahpus day. Brown pour with an off white head. Aroma was big time vanilla sweetness with light roasty notes. Flavors were on the sweet side with lots of vanilla and roasted malt. Light body with average carbonation. Just ok.

Aniela (2313) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2013
Draught at the Pony Bars Cigar City Event NYC sept 2012. Dark brown beer with a small offwhite head. Vanilla aroma. Vanilla, malty, sweet flavour. I love the clean vanilla flavour.

jordinc (104) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2013
On tap. Not much head, but good lacing. Aroma was rich with notes of vanilla and maple. Creamy on the palate, drinks very smooth. The hints of vanilla are enough to taste, but not overpowering. Finishes clean, with hops just discernible. A very well balanced beer, and one that I will return to as often as I can find.

rougeau13 (1987) - Richmond, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Tap at World of Beer Dr. Phillips Orlando. Dark brown with a slight head. Smooth bodied with light carbonation. Aroma of roast, chocolate, nuts, and light vanilla. Slightly sweet taste; a tad weak. Better than the standard version.

Draft sample. Cloudy brown pour, thin head, no lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, malts, a little vanilla extract but not much. Taste is odd - the vanilla isn’t overwhelming at all, but changes the Maduro profile complely. Tastes like the CCB Double Cream Ale, really. Fairly watery too. Just okay.
