COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Maduro Porter is a dark chocolatey ale in the tradition of robust porters. The malt bill includes 2-row pale malt, crystal malts, chocolate malts, and a small portion of black malt for deep black color. This porter is generously hopped with Willamette and Spalter for floral/spicy notes to complement the malty undertones.

Ungstrup (29168) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2005
[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A very dark brown beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet roasted with a good deal of coffe as well as some wood - I think it is Cedartree. The flavor is sweet roasted and very smooth, with a dry bitter coffee end, but the body is thin.

(Bottle 65 cl) Clear, dark brown with a reddish hue and a small, beige head. Lightly burned malt nose. Medium body, lightly burned and ashy accents while the finish is dry with a vague malt astringency. Ends a bit thin and timid. 160607

oh6gdx (20247) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2005
Bottled. Black coloured, small brown head. Roasted malt in faroma. Veautiful flavour of smoke, roasted malt, coffee and caramel. Long aftertaste if roasted malt and caramel. Very smooth and easy-to-drink, though being kind of complex.

omhper (19230) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2005 Bottled. Near black. Coffee aroma. Medium bodied, well hopped and really roasty. Strong citric hops interplay with the coffeeish malt flavours and it works just fine. A great porter!

TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottled
Very dark ruby color, small mocha head. Roasted, cold coffee nose. Medium-bodied, balanced malt profile. Some brandy notes in the otherwise typical porter taste: coffee, roasted malts. Nicely balanced.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2006
Dark brown colour. Fairly rich, chocolatey aroma with light toffeeish accents. Chewy - a little toffeeish and fudgey. A malty, but not roasty, sweet but rounded ball-first porter. Just the way it should be.

bhensonb (10803) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Aromas of chocolate, coffee and dark roasted malt. Three finger tan head. Thin to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Flavors of coffee and dark malt. Floral notes. Hint of chocolate. The chocolate is hard to find, but I think it’s there. Nice toasted malt finish with a decent hop balance. Relatively dry. Good stuff.
