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. (413 characters)

Murky dark brown and not much light seeps through. There's a fingernail of light brown head around the rim and covering about a third of the middle. The aroma is light with caramel and a hint of chocolate. The flavor is more chocolate notes with some caramel at the back of the palate. The body is smooth and silky. (319 characters)

Appearance: Deep brilliant chestnut under a 2” off white foam cap that descends to a thick film. Smell: Light roast malt, chocolate aroma, dark fruit. Taste: Plum with traces of chocolate for support and hints of sour. Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium body and carbonation. (268 characters)

Chestnut brown with ruby highlights and a low wispy head. Low aroma of sweetish toffee malt. Wonderfully delicate flavor of biscuity malt, a little grainy, some subtle background notes of root beer and leather, faint hints of molasses. Moderate mouthfeel, perfect English style carbonation. Very well made beer showcasing talent in producing a beer that's very flavorful without having to be over the top. (409 characters)

Dark brown, semi opaque color. Nice big fluffy off white head that faded to a thick film and left some good lacing. The smell had a lot of coffee and some sweet malty aromas. The flavor was somewhat tart, rather surprising for a brown ale, with a lot of chocolate and coffee flavors as well. The mouthfeel was somewhat thin, but nicely carbonated. Overall, pretty tasty, nice beer. (381 characters)

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. (278 characters)
