4.22/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

rich looking brown, with nice clarity and some reddish tints to the sides and bottom of the glass. Light carbonation could be seen trickling up from the bottom. There was a decent sized, maybe three quarters of an inch of off white foam that came across the top and hung for the remainder of the session, creating some nice ripples of side glass lace.

The aroma was light, lots of nuttiness and light grain in there. Faint hint of vanilla and some light cocoa as well. Maybe a touch of figs way in the back mixed in with an earthy roasted malt. The flavor was very smooth with a nice medium bodied brown ale that still served up very well in the carbonation department. Initial flavor was of caramel and hazelnut, with a touch of oak and bourbon. Nothing really overblown here at all which led to it still being amazingly session able. Light aftertaste of roasted nuts and caramel with hints of vanilla and a very slight bitterness to it

Serving type: growler

On draft at Jimmy's 43. $9 for a 200mL pour, c'mon guys.

Pours dark brown (nearly black) and totally opaque. Minimal tan head that disappears quickly. Sweet malts, lactose, caramel, bready; smells like delicious tiramisu! Aromas are a little too faint, though.

Sweetly roasted malts, vanilla, candied sugar, lactose again. Smooth and oily body. Really does taste like tiramisu, not sure how they did that.

Goes down smooth, low ABV makes it seem sessionable. A touch too sweet for a real session beer, and far too expensive too, but I'd certainly entertain the thought. A delicious brew, but not worth $9 for a tiny 200mL pour.

4/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - This looks like regular Maduro, perhaps a tad thinner: radiant mahogany brown, tan head, wispy.

S - Compared to normal Maduro, this is a bit weaker and does not add anything discernible. It is still nice and roasty, with chocolate, nuttiness and vague dark fruity yeast notes.

T - Same as nose, not an improvement on base. The flavor I expect is there, just seems to be underdeveloped. I am not getting any Tiramasu in this one.

M - A bit thinner and less creamy than normal? Maybe I am just being overly critical. It has a nice feel.

D - I prefer the base. Next!

3.78/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a dark brown, cream-colored head, spotty lacing, and a few whisps here and there.

S - Sweet roasted malts, slight hops, coffee.

T - Similar to the nose. Coffee, dark roasted malts, touch of hops, some woody notes.

M - Light to medium, rich but still light, creamy finish.

D - Good, but I think I prefer the regular Maduro a little better.
