Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Stone Imperial pint glass.
A: Pours a solid brown color with cherry color edges. Nice light khaki 1 finger head that recedes quickly leaving a nice bubbly film.
S: Light chocolate up front with a nice sweet oat middle. I'm getting hints of tobacco leaves mixed with a little fruitiness. Very diverse profile, I'm excited to see what happens when it touches the tongue.
T: Dried oats with the light tobacco leaves come up right at the beginning. This dies down to a semi-sweet chocolate profile that smooths out with some nice oats.
M: Nice solid carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. Nice light chocolate stays with me until the end.
O: I don't drink to many brown ales, but I really enjoyed this brew. You can tell there are some great complexities in this off the shelf beer, and that's great to see. Wish I could get CCB up here!

"Maduro Brown Ale. Hints of caramel, toffee, chocolate and espresso are all on display in this complex, but approachable brown ale. A great 'food beer', Maduro pairs equally well with sweet chocolate based desserts as it does with roasted meat." Brewed in the style of an English Brown Ale.
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a snifter. Served north of 61º Fahrenheit.
(Appearance) Pours a thick crispy chocolate cream head over a deep burgundy brown body with ample carbonation. Retention is average at best, lacing is light and spotty. 3.25
(Smell) Aroma is sweet, roasty and creamy altogether. Medium roasted brown malts, creamy molasses, caramel and toffee build a complex, moist and sweet body. Hints of chocolate, dark roasted coffee linger in the back. Nutty, sweet malt character. Potency is medium-high. 4.25
(Taste) Upfront, sweet molasses malts, a pinch of smoke, some mild earthy sweetness for a deep, complex malt body. The finish is accentuated by an earthy hop blend with a subdued bitterness. This has quite an enjoyable and complex flavor for a Brown Ale. 4.25
(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, mildly chewy, roasty. Carbonation generates a smooth silkiness for a complimentary mouthfeel. Body is medium+ for the style and medium+ overall. Alcohol presence is low. 3.75
(Overall) One of Cigar City's finest year round offerings, with just about everything a Brown Ale could offer. Great flavor, balance and drinkability makes Maduro a return beverage for anybody who can get their hands on a can or two. Most certainly worth a try for those who haven't found a winner Brown Ale. 4
