Growler from the brewery. Pours brown color with red highlights and a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with vanilla and chocolate. Similar flavor with some nuttiness also. Medium body with moderate carbonation. BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2010 On tap at Cigar City Brewery, vanilla and chocolate on the nose. Dark brown color with nice lacing on the glass, smooth full bodied with a nice sweet finish. Overall impression leaves me wanting another, I enjoy the sweeter side of this beer. potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Draught. I’m a sucker for a brown, I must admit. same color as the regular Maduro and not so murky like the Humidor one. Aroma is hazelnut coffee, chocolate, roasted almonds, light cigar still (yes I know the cedar is gone but I’m getting a little wacky Tobaccy anyways, vanilla, and a touch of molasses. Really awesome nose and not so in your face like Humidor (although I loved that too). Flavor is similar starting sweet and ending bitter wet and long. koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Appearance: Pours a fairly translucent dark brown with garnet red corners. The head is a minimal 1 finger off white crown that rapidly dissipates and shows little lace.
Smell: Wow this is a nice complex one....vanilla, coffee, roast malt, caramel, a hint of spicy hops.
Taste: Take the nose and simply amplify it! Really well put together flavor profile hear. The slight touch of hops and the coffee note keep the vanilla and the caramel malt from being too sweet. They simply blend SEEMLESSLY!!!!
Mouthfeel: Fairly standard medium body with just enough carbonation. A touch thin if anything but I’m being really nit picky when I say that.
Drinkability: Low abv + medium body + delicious flavor = really drinkable brew!
Serving type: growler

Thanks again to HOPSHUNTER. Growler. Third one this week from that trade. Excellent carbonation. Intense vanilla aroma and taste. A brown ale kicked up as many notches as you want. Really fantastic and tasty.

Draft. Brown pour with some tan head. Vanilla, some other sugary malts, slight chocolate tones. Overall a sweetened brown ale that could be a great dessert beer. JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - APR 26, 2010

[ Courtesy of plovmand ]. Clear medium to dark brown color with a small, virtually none lacing, fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, chocolate, nutty notes, a danish candy called "laberlaver og de orange stykke i en pose lakridskonfekt". Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, a danish candy called "laberlaver og de orange stykke i en pose lakridskonfekt". Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. 
Huge thanks to AskDrTodd and his dad for arranging this for me. The aroma is vanilla, chocolate, nuts, and more - it reminds me of a chocolate brownie! The flavor is chocolate, vanilla, and obvious roasted malts as well. The flavor is a bit harsher than the aroma via the roast, but it’s really not bad!

32oz growler provided by DuffManSW. Rating #89. Dark brown with a red hue to it and a light brown head that spread out fairly quickly. Aroma of chocolate and vanilla very nice. More sweet chocolate and a touch of vanilla are well represented in this one , very tasty stuff. (1197)
