[4739-20120818] 1pt9.4floz bottle. Herbal floral toasted aroma seems a little spicy. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Smoky tequila liquor flavour. Medium boozy body. Terrible. (4/3/2/1/7) 1.7

SlackerMads (1429) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle. Hazy amber with small white head. Aroma is sharp with notes of lime and cumin. My first thought was that it smells like the stuff I was my dishes in, but as it gets a bit warmer, the cumin becomes more dominant, and dish soap doesn’t smell like cumin. No sir. Taste is soft and smooth and much more balanced and easygoing than the aroma. Notes of cumin, caramel, lime. Smooth spicy finish. Soft carbonation, creamy texture. What? No. We can’t stop here. This is bat country.

Amber red colour, light white head. Aroma of red fruit, tequila, lime, cumin, wood and caramel. Quite spic. Rather sweet flavour. Cumin, lemon peel and wood. Finish nail polish remover, lime peel and cumin.
(From 75cL bottle @ ZZT V. Thanks for sharing, joes!)

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 7, 2012
Copper, clean body and pretty much no head. Herbal, spices, vegetable and only a light red berry sweetness. Herbal and spice but unusually I like it here. Enough balancing sweetness. Bit sharp but great richness. (At ZZT V)

The very definition of craft. The dominate flavor of cumin is quite definite. The beer looks and feels absolutely beautiful with a golden copper and creamy head. This beer would go perfect with chili. It's a winner ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle:   Peach colored amber, hazy, large frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Interestingly spiced nose, Tequila, and the aformentiond cumin and lime.   Whoa, spicy start, warming.   Definite Tequila, with quite a bit of lime.   Cumin is a bit more subtle on the tongue.   Double Cream Ale?   No way I would tell you what the underlying beer was.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Probably one of the more interesting beers I have tried.   Lingering Tequila and Lime.   By now it has some resemblence of a malty Cream Ale, but still the spices dominate.   Very unique, and warming @ 9.5%.

750mL bottle courtesy of markwise. It pours opaque copper with thick gold edges and a sixty second tan head of foam. The aroma is sweet with sugary double cream (double dream) sweetness flowing into sweet pear and apple esters as well as some tequila, spicy oak and vanilla. The taste has that thick double cream sweetness that moves into fig and apple esteriness as well as quickly moving into spiciness with oak and punchiness with a light degree of tequila pulses. To midway some booze shows up as well as a touch of vanilla, cinnamon and more booze taking this to the after taste.

Cumin!!!!!! Liquide sec et boisé sur un corps moyen. Tout ce que je me souviendrai c’est la présence brutale du cumin, très original et ça fonctionne.
