I am a major fan of Cigar City's Jai Alai IPA (terrific IPA!), and decided to try their Maduro Brown Ale (can).

Fluffy head which diminishes relatively quickly and leaves little in the way of lacing behind, color is dark brown with hints of amber. Nose is mild, consistent with toasted brown bread and mild coffee. Palate feel is smooth, with low carbonation. Taste is mild and agreeable, with flavors of mildly sweet roasted malt, gentle hints of coffee and molasses. An agreeable malt-centric brown ale, with a pleasantly smooth mouth feel (due to the additional of oatmeal).
