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

Deep brown amber. Aroma is earthy, nutty, toasted malt, and a whiskey like oakiness. The flavor is of toast, malt, stale coffee, and tobacco. Dry finish. Body is light but smooth from the oats. Nice offering.

Bottle. So this is another strong offering from CCB. The body is a nice brown, plenty of head and carbonation and aromas of oats, chocolate and raisins or some kind of slightly fruity sweetness. Itís nice. Flavor is more of the same... itís almost more like a light porter rather than a brown ale. I donít think much of most brown ales, but this is darn fine stuff.

bottle poured a rich brown in color with a big fluffy tan head that had nice retention. aroma has deep brown malt, nuts, light sweetness, and some roast. mouth feel is good for a brown and there is plenty of carbonation. flavor has rich brown malt, less oats than hoped for, nuts, mild roast, chocolate pokes, and some caramel sweetness. solid beer at a very drinkable level.

12oz from zizzybalubba. Thanks! Pous deep brown with a tan head. Aromas of dark fruit and sweet malts. Flavors of nuts, coffee, and dark fruit. Creamy texture. Finishes clean. Overall a brown ale that even I could enjoy and I generally donít care much for them.

12 oz bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Pour is a hazed brown, along with a lighter tan head. Aroma is quite full, mildly sweet nutty, leafy tobacco, and a full rich earthiness. Taste is the earthy nut, full hazelnut along with a very mild sour note. The oats really soften the beer up and give it a nice body. The tobacco notes are more subdued in the flavor, but still present. Interesting and full flavored beer. Palate is on the heavier side of medium bodied, soft carbonation and a clean finish. Nice one, thanks for sharing Eugene.

Served from a 12 oz bottle thanks to awiseman01. The appearance is a deep rich wood brown. There is a huge deep brown head. Clear bodied. The flavors and aromas are some fruit forward malt tones. Some medium dark dried fruit with a slight sour edge. Very interesting. Will have to revisit next time I have access.

little head, dark brown [our, nutty rich flavor with a good hoppy bitter bite to it. I like it a lot, naturally a fan of brown ales, colored girls, and all other brown awesome stuff. Keep it up cigar city another winner!

The bottle only says "Maduro Brown Ale" and mentions nothing about Oatmeal so Iím a tad confused. Taste and everything is very solid for a brown ale, with a nice mild roasty quality coming through. If it is supposed to be an oatmeal then the boddy does seem a wee bit lacking, not that Iíd expect a stoutís body even with oatmeal, but the body does seem a bit light. Drinkable and tasty, go for it!

Appearance: Dark brown, mostly opaque but hazy ruby red if held up to the light. Forms a small, dark tan, foamy head which leaves minor lacing on the glass.

Smell: Mild caramel, toffee and roasted barley notes. Smells sweet.

Taste: Up front itís quite sweet - almost soda-like. Hints of caramel and toffee, but overall closer to a cola. The middle is mildly bitter and the finish delivers a strong taste of roasted barley. There is a noticeable iced coffee presence here. The finish is mostly clean with a slight coffee-like flavor, but it is very subtle. Overall, the palate is pleasing, but seems to be a little more mild than it should be.

Mouthfeel: Quite thin, totally tepid and borderline watery texture. Why is this so light bodied?

Drinkability: Very drinkable beer as the palate is flavorful but not intense and the thin mouthfeel leads to a very smooth finish and mostly clean aftertaste. The 5.5% ABV seems about right, if not even a little high, but definitely a session-like brew.

Overall, one of the best American brown ales Iíve ever had. I think with a tweak or two it could be even better but is definitely very good as is.
