Re-entering older ratings. Base reste la Maduro qui a déjà été détaillée dans mon autre revue pour cette dernière.
Le tout est agrémenté des noix de pécan qui rajoute un palais agréable de noisette et caramel, la levure quant à elle donne un profile restant sur le côté belge et qui donne à cette bière une bonne finition entre une inspiration belgo-américaine.

The aroma is light, a little smoky and malty. Growler from Chaps, it is dark ruby amber with a small head. The brown ale flavor hjas smoke from the pecans and malts. douglas88 (9624) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2010
Handbottle thanks to David. Pours a dark ruby color with a medium white head. The aroma is vinous, some nuts and Belgian yeast. The flavor is similar; certainly tart and fruity like a Flemish sour, I’m not sure if this is intentional or not, but it’s not bad at all, Belgian yeast, nutty and obvious pecan flavors. Some chocolate. Very fruity and rich almost like a quad without the heat. juiceisloose (1543) - Windermere, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Growler, courtesy hopscotch. Pours a light chestnut brown color and topped by a small head of tan colored foam that recedes quickly to a thin film. The aroma is really nice showing notes of cocoa, toasted caramel, sweet pecans, brown sugar, and a nice yeast component. This stuff smells great. The flavor follows the same showing cocoa, roasted coffee, candied pecans, and sweet coconut. The yeast adds a nice creaminess and some spices to the flavor profile. The belgian yeast really ties everything together nicely in this one. Medium bodied with a smooth, and creamy mouthfeel with balanced carbonation that lends this to being a really easy drinker. This is a great treatment of the base beer, and one that I hope they do again. Beerlando (3343) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Growler, courtesy hopscotch. The pour yields a dark, lightly hazy, chestnut brown body. A small, smooth head of tan foam holds steadfast, leaving behind minimal, spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma is flat-out great, showing a base of toasted cocoa, caramel, sweet Georgia pecans, and creamy, toasted coconut. What really sets it apart from the base beer, however, is the ethereal, creamy, fruity yeast profile that serves to smooth everything together beautifully. Flavors follow the same delicious path, showing creamy and nutty, with notes of coffee, cocoa, and fatty coconut. Belgian yeast meets American roast, and the result is a home run. The body resembles melted ice cream, with a soft, pillowy, whipped carbonation that couldn’t be any smoother. This stuff is awesome. I know, I know.....ANOTHER Maduro treatment.....but this one might just be the best yet. Great beer.

Growler courtesy of askofficerfriendly. Poured a dark amber with a small beige head. Nose is malt, brown sugar, nuts, and mild spice. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor has big caramel and sweet malt notes also notes of nuts, molasses, and very mild spice. Finishes sweet. kiefdog (1827) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Growler courtesy of askofficerfriendly (I think). Pours a reddish brown color with an off-white to tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty with tons of goodness: chocolate, brown sugar, candied pecans, toffee, some hints of molasses. Flavor is also sweet and malty with even more goodness: brown sugar, chocolate, yeast, toffee, caramel. Almost chewy and sweet. Medium body with a malty sweet finish. Really nice beer--wish I had more! hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Growler… Murky prune-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Wonderfully nutty aroma. Smells like Waffle House’s maple syrup slathered pecan waffles. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with modest carbonation. Sweet, nutty, dark fruit flavor. Malty, robust finish. emacgee (4705) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Pours a dark brown with a one finger head. Nose is tart and yeasty, some acetaldehyde, off characters, not good. Flavor is sweet and nutty, yeasty, some esters, meh. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Call me a homer, but I freaking loved this beer. A very interesting, sweet twist on Maduro-- this would be amazing with Bolita. Pours Maduro brown with a slight, off-white head. Nose is belgian yeast, brown sugar, nuts, pecans, and a twinge of bitterness. Flavor is very similar with a pleasing nutty, brown sugary, belgian yeasty finish that just leaves the palate feeling great. Very enjoyable, the best Maduro treatment yet!
