Dark pour with ruby highlights. Aroma has chocolate, nuts, some light fruit and raisins with a touch of sugar cookie. Flavor is sweet and roasted malts, balanced but light. Not a punch of blueberry but it is noticable. Pretty good but I would have liked to see more blueberry pancake type flavor, for me. But for what it is, great effort. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Brown pour, tan head. Blueberries, roasted nuts, hints of light chocolate, wheat crackers, slightly sweet. hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2010 Growler… CCB Fruit in the Room 2010... Clear, dark, dirty orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. The nose offers chocolate, light espresso and a hint of blueberry. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with relaxed carbonation. The flavor provides chocolate, coffee and a dab of blueberry. Nods a touch toward the bitter side of balance with a rumor of tartness. Crisp, roasty, moderately bitter finish. italarican (1550) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. I was convinced this was just regular Maduro. Delicious oatmeal brown with plenty of chocolate malt and no blueberry to be found. Tons of roast and no blueberry. I mean, it’s very good, but the treatment itself didn’t add anything. Cigar City is still the king of oatmeal browns! sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2011
Re-entering older ratings. Base reste la Maduro qui a déjà été détaillée dans mon autre revue pour cette dernière.
Rajout de myrtille est parfois délicat dans la bière, surtout selon le style utilisé. Cette baie se donne parfaitement dans cette bière brune rajoutant un aspect fruité sauvage où l’on reconnait de suite la myrtille. Facile à boire comme l’est en général la Maduro.

Poured from a can, this is a great brown ale with lingering notes of coffee, malts and chocolate. Easily enjoyable in any setting where caramelized malts that are roundeed out with hints of tobacco and leather are desired. This is a fantastic session beer.

Growler, courtesy SoLan. Pours a clear chestnut brown color with reddish highlights. A small, frothy, bubbly tan head leaves wet micro-spots of lacing on the glass. The nose is not too far off from the base Maduro, showing notes of rich cocoa and caramel malt, with hints of flaked oats and hints of nuts. Blueberry comes across as a faint, generic, fruity sweetness, not very prominent at all. Flavors follow suit, again based in coco-caramel malt, showing soft roast and smooth, soothing oats. The berries lend a softly tangy, mainly sweet fruit element. Medium bodied, with a silky, moderately carbonated mouthfeel, the palate lends itself to sessioning. I found this one to be tasty, but the added sweetness detracts a bit from the rock solid base beer. juiceisloose (1492) - Windermere, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Growler from the brewery. Pours a chestnut brown color with some reddish hue and topped by a small, foamy tan colored head that leaves tiny spots of lace behind. The aroma is pretty typical for the base Maduro with roasted cocoa and caramel malt to with hints of flaked oats, and some subtle blueberry sweetness in the back. The flavor follows suit with the roasted cocoa and caramel malt base with hints of nuts and smooth oats. The blueberries are noticeable on the backend lending an earthy tartness to everything. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel that leads to an earthy, crisp finish. The blueberries were subtle, but added some nice flavor and earthiness to this treatment. Nice, tasty session brown ale. murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger.
Almost identical to the normal Maduro. Nice nutty aroma with roasty malts and chocolate, medium bodied and very smooth. We left the beer out for quite a bit to warm up and eventually picked up some very faint blueberry notes.
