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

Bottle thanks to Solan. Poured a dark body with nice head. Aroma is slightly sweet. Nice and robust tone to it and a smooth finish.

An OK brown ale. Aroma was kind of weak. Slightly alcoholic with roasted malt and earth coming through. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was decent but not spectacular. Roasted caramel malt mostly with just a slight chocolate-ness and earthy hops. The flavor is not very full and doesn’t break through the carbonation very well (which is nice and strong). Run of the mill brown.

Skvader (124) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2011
Aroma of butter fudge. Taste is more like a fudge flavoured with hazelnut on bottle but on draught more like pure hazelnut. In both cases this flavvour is balanced by a clear aciduous bitterness from the hops, but on the bottle there is a less pleasant aftertaste than on draught.

arminjewell (8673) - 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 (1677) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 10, 2011
This is an excellent brown ale with an incredibly creamy feel. It’s 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 it’s a delicious beer and a pleasure to drink.

Thanks Tina! Wasn’t expecting to enjoy this as much as I did, but it’s 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 there’s 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.
