Cigar City Vanilla Maduro just doesn’t seem to measure up to the quality of the original. Pours a thin dark brown with no head. Only light vanilla notes in the aroma. Taste is overly vanilla flavored with a watery body. Not sure what is going on with this Vanilla Maduro, but I am hoping it was a bad pour. Niall73 (2434) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
Growler at home while visiting jacksonville. Pours a lightish coke colour with an off white head. Lightly milk chocolaty, light vanilla, caramel aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Light caramel, vanilla ice cream, light choc, hint of coffee... Smooth, sweet, easy drinking. Nice. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Brown black pour with frothy tan head and lace. Aroma is vanilla and light chocolate. Flavor is semi sweet chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of roast malt. Medium body with smooth carbonation. nice umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Nitro tap at Cigar City. Aroma is vanilla, nuts, cream, cocoa, light toffee. Tastes similar. Super creamy from the nitro. Very nice and the vanilla doesn’t overpower. kathouse (1930) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Cloudy brown with no head at all. Vanilla aroma is quite pleasant. Great balance in flavor and finish. Light toast, bread, and cereal. Very nice.

I've had vanilla beers that I like. Now I've had one that I don't particularly enjoy.

Draft at Mekong. Huge vanilla character on top of a nice toasty malts. Flavor more on the brown ale, toasty malts. Vanilla fades out. Smooth and creamy. Nice. DiarmaidBHK (5649) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Draft at Mekong. Pours dark brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Nice vanilla and roasted nut notes on the nose. The vanilla hits first on the tongue with the malt coming through next. Finished clean. Solid example of style.

Growler. Pours opaque cola brown with a thick and frothy pale buff head; a peep of daylight gets through at the bottom. Aroma has notes of roast malt, caramel and - yes - vanilla. Toasty malt dominates the flavor but lets vanilla, caramel, and a snip of hops share the gustatory stage. Body is average, fizz is lacking; but finish is flavorful with toasty malt and vanilla notes. Try this vanilla and see if it’s a thrilla. solidfunk (9363) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Huge vanilla here with good background of roast and light grain. Some chocolate. Dark cloudy brown pour. Light bitter finish. Thick consistency. Nice stuff. Tap at World of Beer.
