Bottle. Slightly cloudy dark burgundy. The small, thin head becomes nothing quickly. Intense nose. Sharp, funky agave like in blanco tequila, brown sugar, vanilla, maple.Tequila is more muted in the flavor, though I still get some funk -- this is fresh agave. Woody, sharp notes are subdued at the swallow by mild toast, sugar cane, brown sugar, caramel and cedar. Syrupy, thick, medium-full body has very little carbonation. Sugars linger on the tongue, but boozy heat does not. Not bad.

Nice and interesting.

tmrmwel (1201) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 29, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown, with a small creamy offwhite head. Aroma is dark roasted malts, with dried dark fruits and prunes. Flavour is roasted malts, and a sour sting of what presumably is tequila barrels, as well as berries, oak, vanilla and an alcohol sting lingering through the finish.

DuffMan (7624) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Medium amber, golden highlights. Aroma is equally malty and vinous in character. Sweet malty palate, sweet bread with sherry-like nuances, woody undertones. Interesting, tasty.

JorisPPattyn (8335) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2015
Small, if stable fine yellow head on top of deep ruby-brown beer. Alcoholic nose, heavy but with strange side aromas: cheese, stale water, desinfectant, wood, aldehydes. Sharpish, bit vegetable -sourish flavours added to a not meritfree Oud bruin. Again slightly cheesy and less disturbing side flavours. Alcoholburn, thick & viscous, rich oily feel; good carbonation. Say ten Hail Mary’s with a double tongue. In Spanish.

Christian (11656) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 20, 2015
Dark chestnut colour with a small white head. Malty aroma of bread and toffee, with fruity notes and obvious agave/tequila and a faint dusty oxidised note. The flavour is tart and fruity with lots of tequila I like tequila and I like this beer. Your relationship with tequila will matter a lot...

chinchill (2771) - South Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2015
500ml{?} shared bottle. High ABV is quite evident in the aroma which suggests a mix of sherry and brown ale. Slight woody aspect with plenty of dark and over-ripe fruit notes. Lovely red-brown body.

TET (1998) - FINLAND - APR 6, 2015
A dark brown beer with a slightly yellow and almost medium head. Aroma has dried fruits and some red currants, weird sweetness that is probably agave nectar. Taste has dark and dried fruits, lots of agave nectar. Medium+ bodied, medium carbonation, quite fresh. Weird beer, maybe too weird. Agave is dominating.

Homer321 (2551) - Melboring, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2015
bottle from a store while I was in cali. pours damn still. no head. no carbonation. dammit. Nose is vinous, moderately oxidized, papery, with some sherry notes. deep red in color. Taste is fucken tequila. ugh, lightly tart, oxidized. this is bad. I feel violated. like a bad tequiza with too much malt and sticky sweet, awkwardly cloying. just terrible.

SinH4 (746) - SWITZERLAND - APR 2, 2015
Brown color with small beige head. Malts and berries, sweet, but also refreshing. Taste is intense but still kinda light. Fruity. Dangerous! It’s got a very special burn in the end. Interesting, to say the least. Incredible that this is 13.5 ABV.
