Nate (4171) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2016
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.

Pours a clear, yet very dark brown with a little reddish color and khaki colored head. Vanilla, roast, and some raw cocoa on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied, very smooth and creamy. Finishes with vanilla and a chocolate linger.

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.

Growler at home while visiting jacksonville. Pours a lightish coke colour with an off white head. Lightly milk chocolaty, light vanilla, caramel aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Light caramel, vanilla ice cream, light choc, hint of coffee... Smooth, sweet, easy drinking. Nice.

Nitro tap at Cigar City. Aroma is vanilla, nuts, cream, cocoa, light toffee. Tastes similar. Super creamy from the nitro. Very nice and the vanilla doesn’t overpower.

Cloudy brown with no head at all. Vanilla aroma is quite pleasant. Great balance in flavor and finish. Light toast, bread, and cereal. Very nice.
