Commercial Description
Cigar City's Maduro Oatmeal Brown Ale is a Northern English-style brown ale with some American affectations. It is unlike the typical American Brown Ale, as it doesn’t have the big hop character common in American-brewed Brown Ales. And Maduro is higher in alcohol than the common English brown ale. Maduro also has oats, in the malt bill which imparts a silky body and aids in making the roasted, toasted and chocolate components mesh together in Maduro's complex malt profile. The end result is a remarkably full flavored yet approachable and sessionable brown ale that pairs well with cigars. 5.5% ABV

Tasting Notes – Big caramel and toffee in the aroma with moderate notes of roasted nuts and hints of chocolate. The flavor opens with toasted bread and moves into a prominent caramel sweetness and then notes of roasted peanuts and finally fudgey, chocolatey, coffee notes linger into the finish.

    [Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

    The pour was a hazy dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown creamy head that lasted a very long time, finally reducing to a thin cap and a medium collar which in turn did produce some good sticky lacing.

    The aroma was of a toasted cereal malt and a leathery yeast with notes of milk chocolate, roasted coffee, caramel, molasses and a bit of oats.

    The taste was extremely malty and a tad sweet with hints of caramel and molasses early on, and then became rather creamy and a little bitter with notes of chocolate and coffee towards the end. The flavor hung on for a good long duration letting an espresso mocha taste settle in wonderfully on the taste buds.

    Mouthfeel was medium in body with a light creamy robust texture and a mild to medium carbonation.

    Overall a brew that is an exquisite representation of this style, with the oats giving it a nice smooth, creamy feel and a great drinkability. Most definitely one of the best Brown Ale's I have tasted to date...

    Once again not the first time having this beer, but first time having it to review. This is Cerveza Chica’s favorite Brown Ale, and I can see where she is coming from. This is a very drinkable brown ale, that is smooth and light bodied. It has a bit of a nutty taste to it, but nothing over powering to it. I personally had a hint of alcohol burn at the very end of the taste, but nothing that was crazy. I personally can not wait to try the Vanilla Maduro which I was able to snag a growler of. Overall solid beer!
