LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Appearance: Pours a dark red with a little froth. Aroma: Light vanilla and booze. Taste: Vanilla beer flavored water. Mouthfeel: Watery. Overall: Really not impressed. The Espresso Maduro is off the charts good, so if given the choice, go with that.

Growler shared by the Tampa crew. Pours a lightish brown; small beige head. Aroma is sweet vanilla bean as well as some caramel and toffee... but mostly vanilla. Even more so on taste... like vanilla extract. If youíre looking for vanilla, this is your beer. Not so complex, though.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 11, 2010
One of a million CCB samples shared by the powerful Tampa Crew. Thanks for all the ratings Iím about to enter, Greg and Justin! Some of the Maduros Iíve had can be on the thinner, lighter side, and this is certainly one of them. Decent enough malty brown ale character at base, but the nose gives away a relative one-dimensionality here. The vanilla was just a bit too sharp, elbowing other things to the side rather than getting along with the malts.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Thanks to the Tampa crew for sharing! Brown pour with a thin beige head. Aroma is roasty with a big blast of vanilla. Light roast and chocoalte up front finish and aftertaste is ALL vanilla

emacgee (4404) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Pours a light brown with a thing light tan head. Nose is sweet, malty, caramel, super vanilla presence, tad one dimensional. Flavor shows lots of vanilla, sweet, some grain astringency. Sweet palate. Vanilla dominated overall.

Growler from CCB.This stuff is great, its my favorite flavored Maduro so far. The vanilla is definitely but its not over powering.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 23, 2010
So wonderful to find this one on draught at Cigar City Brewing (Tampa, FL): Pours amber brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of roasted vanilla bean, soft maple syrup rather than caramel, bitter coffee bean, oak wood, and lots of roasted bitters. Flavors are similar. You can really bite into that malt. Thin body, thick tastes. Alcohol hidden well. Drinkability: Simply put, itís the taste of swagger. Rebuy: Yes. #252 on 23012010, DG.

GROWLER COURTESY OF MAR. POURED DARK BROWN WITH WHITE HEAD. NICE LACE. AROMA WAS OF CHERRY, VANILLA, SPICE, AND COFFEE. FLAVOR WAS OF SOUR CHERRY AND MILD VANILLA. GOOD BEER.

DialSquare (3522) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Growler courtesy of Wilkes from the brewery. Deep red-brown pour a small light tan head that leaves a ring. Strong vanilla, caramel and nut aroma. Taste is a toasty version of the aroma with the vanilla dominating. Slick and creamy (if itís possible) medium texture. Havenít had the regular Maduro yet to compare it to - didnít knock my sock off, but good.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 2010-04-10, growler at PapsÝ, 6-4-6-3-12=31
Dark amber to brown color; clear. Aroma of caramel and vanilla candies. Vanilla chocolate flavor, some roasted malts, smooth mouthfeel. Not impressive.

2009-10-17, draught at New Beers Distributors, New York, 6-4-7-3-14=34
Hazy brown color. The aroma is quite dusty. Caramel flavor, dry initially, more full bodied later. Correct bitterness, no vanilla. Good Brown Ale, nothing special.
