3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle.
Pours golden color with a small head. Tequila on the nose, dark fruits, some faint plums and wood. Sweet ripe fruit on the flavor, alcohol, dark berries, wood and some sour malty notes too. Very interesting, on the edge of being offensive but somehow stays on the good side. Extremely interesting brew.

Flavour of strong bready malts, sourness, salt, tart wooden notes, strong agave notes and tequila, licorice, red berries and some chocolate. Full bodied and thick mouthfeel. Agave is strong here. Alcohol warms nicely. If you like tequila, you are going to love this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pouts a very murky brown with no head. Aromas of sour dark fruit, tobacco. Taste is sweet and sour. Intentionally sour? Not sure. It is quite hot, and has a very expressive chewing tobacco note along with sour dark fruit. Tequila is noticeable as well. Pretty thick, very low carb. Moderately tart. Very high boost. Finishes sweet and tart with an alcohol burn. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Murky brown color, minimal head/lace/retention. Aroma is vegetal with other notes of oak, vanilla, caramel, darker fruit, alcohol. Full bodied, alcoholic, tequila barrels seem to be pretty bad for BA beers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ SBWF 2014: tydlig torr fatdoft. Smaken är också den ganska torr men fyllig, het och med tydlig ton av tequila.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Almost headless, hazy brown pour. Intense tequila perfume with green vegetal notes, booze, stewed fruits, caramelly cookie-like maltiness. Quite citric flavour, stewed fruits (figs, dates) blended with lemon juice. A unique flavour profile, the acidity level is high yet it’s massive enough that it feels sticky and sweet despite being thin, potentially a function of body-enhancing oak wood tannins and the sheer sweetening alcohol content. At 15.99 for 375 ml, this certainly delivered in terms of original experience, but to my heart, was no conqueror.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky brown with very little head. Interesting and unusual aroma, definitely noticing some oak and tequila. Slightly sour flavor that’s smooth but a bit heavy. Good sipping brew.
