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.

Growler at home while visiting jacksonville. Pours a lightish coke colour with an off white head. Lightly milk chocolaty, light vanilla, caramel aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Light caramel, vanilla ice cream, light choc, hint of coffee... Smooth, sweet, easy drinking. Nice.

Nitro tap at Cigar City. Aroma is vanilla, nuts, cream, cocoa, light toffee. Tastes similar. Super creamy from the nitro. Very nice and the vanilla doesn’t overpower.

Cloudy brown with no head at all. Vanilla aroma is quite pleasant. Great balance in flavor and finish. Light toast, bread, and cereal. Very nice.

I've had vanilla beers that I like. Now I've had one that I don't particularly enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dr_Fellini (1018) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Draft at Mekong. Huge vanilla character on top of a nice toasty malts. Flavor more on the brown ale, toasty malts. Vanilla fades out. Smooth and creamy. Nice.

DiarmaidBHK (3951) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Draft at Mekong. Pours dark brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Nice vanilla and roasted nut notes on the nose. The vanilla hits first on the tongue with the malt coming through next. Finished clean. Solid example of style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (4438) - Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Growler. Pours opaque cola brown with a thick and frothy pale buff head; a peep of daylight gets through at the bottom. Aroma has notes of roast malt, caramel and - yes - vanilla. Toasty malt dominates the flavor but lets vanilla, caramel, and a snip of hops share the gustatory stage. Body is average, fizz is lacking; but finish is flavorful with toasty malt and vanilla notes. Try this vanilla and see if it’s a thrilla.

Huge vanilla here with good background of roast and light grain. Some chocolate. Dark cloudy brown pour. Light bitter finish. Thick consistency. Nice stuff. Tap at World of Beer.

Gachupines (1185) - USA - JUL 12, 2015
Brown with a large tan head. Aroma is vanilla, roasted malt and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is strong vanilla and roasted cocoa with just a touch of coffee. Incredibly smooth and flavorful. Wife: 3.9
