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

arminjewell (8620) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Pours reddish brown with white head. Aroma has notes of nut, earth, touch of cherry. Taste is nut and earth, some crystal malt, and a touch of sweet roast at the end. Not bad, but nothing too great about it.

WolfsBlood84 (172) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2011
12 oz Bottle - Pours light brown with creamy of white head. Aroma of malt, wood, earth, and distinctly smells a little lightly sweet and sour - like a wild ale or a lambic. Tastes lightly nutty, malty, not overly sweet, really complex - on the thinner side palate-wise. A bit gritty and on the drier side in the aftertaste.

popery (1666) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 10, 2011
This is an excellent brown ale with an incredibly creamy feel. Itís a slightly reddish shade of brown with a creamy light tan head. The liquid appears thick and murky. Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth and creamy. For a 5.5% abv beer, Maduro has a very rich, full feel. The aroma is maple syrup, walnuts, earth, caramel and a hint of lime. The beer is relatively sweet with a lightly bitter roast finish. This seems a bit like a cross between a brown ale and a porter with that roasty note, but itís a delicious beer and a pleasure to drink.

Thanks Tina! Wasnít expecting to enjoy this as much as I did, but itís a substantial, very flavorful brown that - perhaps no surprise given the main ingredient - compares very favorably to a sessionable oatmeal stout. Malts are grainy and earthy rather than slickly sweet. And thereís just enough hops in there to give this one a nice bitter kiss on the finish.

Dfonorow (1721) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Cloudy brown with a slight red tint and a very thin white head. The aroma is a bit stronger than I expected for a brown ale and has quite a bit of alcohol in it. The alcohol mixes with a roast and sweet backbone. The flavor is very smooth and not quite as sharp as the nose, with a touch of roasted coffee and oatmeal, this is quite an interesting beer. Fairly light bodied with a bitter finish and a tad watery than I would have hoped for.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a smallish tan head. Aroma is sweet malt with some nuttiness and coffee. The flavor is bigger -- malty, sweet, nutty, quite a bit of coffee, some lactic notes, and a good hit of sourness. Middle and finish is full roast malt bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and slightly creamy. A big brown.

FudgeSociety2 (311) - Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2011 Smell of light chocolate and coffee malt. Pours a reddish brown with minimal head. Taste is reminiscent of a doppelbock with an extremely subtle vanilla back. Pretty good, but Iíll take the dogfishhead indian brown any day.

12oz bottle from my Secret Santa. Pours dark chocolate brown with a 2 finger creamy beige head. The nose is chocolate and light roast. The taste is chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and toasted nuts. Medium bodied. Tasty brown.
