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.

Kind of an ugly muddy brown pour with minimal head. Watery vanilla with light malty notes. Had this after a HF Twilight so the use of vanilla did not seem right in this one. A bit too vanilly and the base beer was masked.

Draft to tulip. Looks good; a foggy brown with off-white lacing. Smells solid; vanilla and sweet malt. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Growler, heavy on the vanilla flavors, really kinda overwhelms the brown ale, oh well

Draft. Deep brown pour, tiny off-white head, no retention/lace. Aroma of chocolate, nuts, vanilla, light roast. Taste is lightly sweet, chocolate, vanilla extract, light brown sugar. Palate is soft, creamy, chocolate finish.

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the Cajun Cafe Fall Fest. Pours a hazy amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has an intense vanilla note with a bit of a cookie and dark grain backing. Flavor has some dark grain up front but has an overwhelming note of vanilla through out. Too sweet for me.

On tap @ProofBrewing. Aroma is remarkably similar to the original maduro, very little vanilla present. Taste is light mix of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, with a roasted taste present as well. Still a remarkably light beer given the dark aray of flavors, and overall very pleasant. Not typically a fan of brown ales but this one was quite nice.

jbruner (2296) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Pours a clear, light brown on tap with minimal tan head and light lacing. Aroma of vanilla and coffee, not a while lot else. Taste is the roasted oats, slight coffee, but mostly the synthetic vanilla. Meh.
