HighWine (955) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Tap flight at the brewery. Light brown pour with minimal head. Heavy vanilla aroma. Taste is vanilla extract with softly roasted malts and enough bittering hops to balance it a bit. Still fairly sweet from the vanilla. More mouthfeel would make this a real winner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the source. Murky brown color, small tan head. Aroma of - you guessed it. Taste is - you guessed it again.

GT2 (9312) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Tap at CCB. Complete sheets of off white lacing atop hazy ruby. Nose is sticky vanilla cookie. Taste is super slick and oily with a thinner finish. A bit like diet cola. Soapy end. Odd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

When this beer is on, it really is some kind of thing. Heavy tones of vanilla but not in that "Southern Tier syrup" kind of way, sort of like an adults vanilla. Rich but not too sweet, its definitely hard to believe this is just Maduro with some vanilla beans, it tastes almost more like a porter.

On tap at CCB. Aroma was strong malty and vanilla. Appearance was brown with minimal head. Taste was sweet with the vanilla shining through. Finish was sweet with vanilla aftertaste. Overall a great beer from a great brewer.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 I finally got to try this beer! The body was the usual maduro; a merky brown brew with a soft white head. Aromas were pure vanilla with some nuttiness and slight roasted notes. Sip after sip reveals fresh vanilla among bready tones and a malty finish. As it warmed up the vanilla became fairly potent, and it was fantastic.

Firkin @ cigar city. Aroma of hazelnut, cream, and a slight pot funk. Pours pale brown with a good fast head. Tastes of vanilla bean, dark nuts and a thin finish. A little overbearing for its actual substance.

Really good beer. As most of the cigar city beers are just delicious!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
