Got this on tap at World of Beer Tampa Westchase.

Pours a nice brown with red highlights. Not much head but that was because the pour was full.

Aroma was full of vanilla, brown sugar, caramel, roasted grain, nuts, cocoa, and maybe a hint of coffee.

Taste was sweet but not cloyingly so. Mostly reflected the complexity of the nose. This was good sipped and gulped.

Body was soft and medium which made it pretty good even in the heat of Florida summer.

Overall probably my favorite CCB beer yet.

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.
