Dark brown pour with a nose of chocolate, vanilla and coffee. Taste follows with a nice vanilla note. Not too sweet which is nice. Little hop bite on the finish. Great drinking beer.

Draft @ Brewery. Nitro. Pours a very dark brown, blackish beer with a creamy, nitro off white head on top. Aroma has hints of coffee and vanilla, some roasted malts and molasses. Flavor is sweet, loads of vanilla in there but the base beer is also noticeable in the palate. Nicely balanced, longlasting flavor, nice beer.

Thanks Dchmela! Pours a dark brown with tan head. Beautiful vanilla, nut, and brown sugar aromas. Flavours are crème brulee, marshmallow, vanilla, burnt sugar, toasted malts. Up there with the best brown ales I’ve had.

12oz can. 8/23/16 can date. Appearance: Deep brown, nearly opaque, with some ruby hints of clarity under light. Moderate khaki head.
Aroma: Toasted, nutty malt with a strong vanilla bean. Very nice.
Taste: Rich toasty malt sweetness with some nutty, almost toffee character, with a moderate creamy vanilla bean character from start to finish. Sorry end the roasty edge of the malt with a low perceived bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy bodied with a distinct creaminess and low carbonation. Velvety.
Finish: Warm toasted and light roast maltiness with a creamy vanilla lingers after the swallow.
Overall: Remarkably smooth, creamy, balanced beer. The vanilla smoothed any edges on the toasty, roasted malt, producing a smooth experience throughout. Great take on an already great Brown Ale

On nitro at the Knick (4/11/15). Nice vanilla-Tootsie Roll aroma, woody with lactose. Dark black-brown with creamy off-white to tannish lacing nitro head. Medium body with nitro carbonation. Sweet but not cloying with vanilla and oatmeal, Tootsie Roll. No bitterness. Good sweet finish with lactose lingering and a mild nutty sweet after.

Cigar City Vanilla Maduro just doesn’t seem to measure up to the quality of the original. Pours a thin dark brown with no head. Only light vanilla notes in the aroma. Taste is overly vanilla flavored with a watery body. Not sure what is going on with this Vanilla Maduro, but I am hoping it was a bad pour.
