A hearty brown ale that benefits from the silky mouthfeel provided by oatmeal, pairs great with Cigars.

SPDickerman (1194) - Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2012 Pours brown with a large, fluffy tan head. Smells strongly of malts, hints of chocolate and coffee, with a nice oatmeal smell. Tastes malty, chocolate, hints of coffee, and some roasted characteristics are thrown in, with a hint of smokiness; sweet, but not super sweet. Medium-bodied with a smooth, gummy, almost wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Cigar City Maduro Brown Ale finishes with almost a stout-like sweetness.

Avnjöts med Emmelie och Niklas. Mycket bra doft av kaffe, choklad (mjölk). Smaken inte riktigt lika bra, men helt ok. Maltig och söt, mycket kaffe och lite för diskret beska!

olio (9378) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2011
75 cl bottle.
Pours deep ruby red colour with medium head. Aroma of stomach acid, roasted, malts, milky chocolate, light ripe fruits and bread. Flavour of smooth oat, milk chocolate, roasted malts, light fruits, nuts, bread and mild coffee. Mouth-drying and smooth with a mild bitter finish. Despite the somewhat repulsive aroma, this would be a highly drinkable brew.

75 cl bottle @ home as ”Cigar City Maduro Brown Ale”, no BBE info
Beautiful ruby red colour. The aroma reminds me of vomit. It is slightly sour with roasted malt and some milk chocolate. Flavour is very nutty with some chocolate and hints of coffee. Rather dry, rich and nutty finish. Good.

lusikka (7700) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2011
750 ml bottle.
Pours a deep amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, wood, stomach acid and some chocolate. Flavour of toasted malts, dry fruits, strong nuts, grassy hops, caramel with some acidity. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonation and a finish of toasted malts with fruitiness. The acidic notes ruin this.

MPosey (134) - , Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Pours a deep dark brown with an offwhite head that disappates quickly. Malty aromas. A toasty character which fades to an almost mocha like middle and a grainy finish. A little thin in the palate, but it is decent.

ChainGangGuy (4809) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2011
12 ounce bottle - $1.69 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia. "SEPT2011" marked on the bottle label.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown body with a moderate-sized, ecru-hued head. Scant lace on the descent.

Smell: Toasted, roasted malts with light notes hinting at semi-sweet chocolate and caramel with, perhaps, a perceived hint of cured brightleaf tobacco.

Taste: Toasty, heartily roasted maltiness with hints of dry chocolate and coffee. Modest amount of dark caramel sweetness. Slight oatmeal nuttiness. Very low fruitiness. Herbaceous, leafy, earthy hops with enough bitterness to keep things balanced. Finishes smooth, fairly dry with a final touch of roast and dehydrated leaves.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth, creamyish mouthfeel.

Overall: A nice, competent, malty brown ale. It’s no wonder they use it as the base for seemingly hundreds of varieties of alternations, tweaks, and add-ons.
