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.

The aroma of cocoa. The flavor is wonderful. It also consists of cocoa. Okay bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth briefly. The beer drops towards the end. Mediocre beer anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours nearly black. Small white ywt stable hwad. Smell is vanilla, sweet, clear but no overkill. Taste is thin. Vanilla, but again clear yet no overkill, slight coffee / roasty undertone with hints of chocolate. Really low carbo, i’d even say this is borderline cask. Together with the thin mouthfeel, it is like flavored water... Ok I guess, but not what i prefer.
