Tap. Pours a slightly hazy brown with amber highlights. Vanilla is huge in the nose with roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Taste is chocolate, light roasted malt, coffee, and just a hint of vanilla in the finish. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Very good but if Cigar City combined the Vanilla Maduro and Espresso Maduro it would be a match made in heaven.
Nitro draft @ Uno’s Neshaminy. Pours semi-opaque nut brown with a creamy, bone-colored head. Nutty aroma mixed with a pleasant vanilla note. Medium body with a bit of creaminess and a dry finish. Nutty malt flavor mixed with a note of vanilla. Maybe a touch of tobacco at the base. RRistow12 (898) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Tasted from can. Pours a clear brown with off white head. Aroma of cocoa, vanilla and some coffee. Flavors of vanilla up front with more muted chocolate and coffee notes. Very well done sessionable brown.

Draft at Whole Foods PM. Poured hazy dark brown with tan head. Earthy brown malts and vanilla in the nose. Tasted like a maduro brown ale, with the earthy, malty notes, mild tobacco, nuts, and well integrated vanilla. AirForceHops (7334) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 5, 2017
12 oz. can shared by Chalumeaux, much thanks! Deeper brown in color, lasting head retention. Nice smooth, easy vanilla aroma. The flavor is mostly vanilla bean with a nutty malt base. The texture and mouthfeel is correct for the style. Carbonation is correct with a average mouthfeel. Lots of lingering vanilla on the finish. Nice.
