Enjoyed the Cigar City Maduro while visiting The Porch in Key West. So perhaps the atmosphere contributes to my posite rating, but nevertheless its a great beer.

Appearance: slightly cloudy the color of weak diner coffee.
Smell: a little chocolate, a little coffee but not a whole lot of fragrance.
Taste: amazing. Makes up for all that is lacking in color and smell.
Mouthful: light, not a lot of after taste.

Smells chocolate hazelnut... dark pour

Chocolate aftertaste. Toffee as well

Surprised how much a light body feel it has to it considering the super dark color. Not much head. Carmel on the front end.

Would go great with dessert after dinner. Would definitely try this again.

Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a surprisingly dark brown with a great deal of ruby highlights. Has almost a finger of head to it, although I'm sure you could get more with a more aggressive pour. Head dissipates quickly and no lacing visible. Even so, love the color of this one. (3.75)

S- HUGE caramel/toffee with a nice nuttiness and chocolate/coffee notes as well. No hops that I can detect, but just a beautiful malty aroma. (4.25)

T- Pretty much follows the nose exactly. Big caramel and toffee, with distinct chocolate and roasted notes, particularly a roasted coffee flavor. The nuttiness is a little more subdued here, and that's probably the only thing I wish was a bit more noticeable. A very smooth and balanced bitterness keeps it from being to sweet. (4.25)

M- Very silky thanks to the use of flaked oats. Has a richness and creaminess to it as well, and has a medium body to me. (4.25)

O- Keep sending Cigar City Brewing to Upstate New York! For the first time I found their stuff in my area tonight, and I sincerely hope more is on the way. I had heard great things about these brews, and they do not disappoint. If you are a fan of brown ales, this needs to be on your list. (4.16)
