32 ounce growler from tpd975, thanks again for our first trade Greg, poured into an oversized wine glass side by side with the cacao and espresso version, shared with Ben, Bob, and Danny last night, color is a medium to dark brown, one inch soapy off white head, some retention and lacing, aroma consists of
sweet vanilla, almost creamer in a coffee-like, roasted malts, brown sugar, caramel, and light molasses, starts off with sweeter caramel than the other two versions, vanilla domiantes the middle with almost a root beer or cream soda feel, pretty bubbly and sweet rounded, the finish has more vanilla mixed with nuts and caramel, it never gets overly sweet which is nice, instead it enhances what is already there is the brown ale and provides a creamier overall feel, slightly sweet, roasted, and malty mouthfeel, medium bodied, moderate to high carbonation and especially for a growler, taste lingers quite well without being overbearing, could have drank a lot of this, very smooth and light feeling, good drinkability for any kind of beer containing chocolate or vanilla, would drink again, worth trying

From 05/28/14 notes. 4 oz. poure of this on tap at Cigar City's Brewpub in Tampa, one of the better beers I tried there.
a - Pours a dark, reddish mahogany brown color with once inch of off white head and low carbonation evident.
s - Smells of vanilla, cream, coffee, milk chocolate, and roasted malts. Nose is nice, definitely more vanilla than the normal version, though I'm not sure I like the nose that much more than the base. Less coffee.
t - Tastes of vanilla, espresso, creamy coffee, sweet milk chocolate, roasted malts, caramel malts, toffee, and dark chocolate. More coffee than the nose and still a lot of vanilla, better taste than the nose and than the base beer.
m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is super smooth and creamy and insanely easy to drink. Amazing mouthfeel.
o - Overall a really good beer; I like the base beer but this is much better. Well worth trying if you see it on tap.

This maduro didn't do anything for me. I felt like if I was drinking a sweeter maduro.
Pour a dark beer. Little foam. Smells very light of vanilla, malts. Taste is just the same as a maduro. I felt a little bit of the vanilla, but this beer was more like a weak stout than a brown ale to me. I missed it, yet I drank it all.
Also tried the nitro version. Way better. Smoother and creamy. And hints of vanilla on this one.
