Stine (1642) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Chocolate hued, heavily shaded appearance. The reposado barrel is imposing in the aroma, with its wood glue and alcohol soaked piney sweetness. Lacking in dimensions, reliant on overpowering barrel and alcohol components that are determinedly bathroom-like in affect. Toilet bowl plus plants and sugar. The flavor is much the same, though moments of delicate pear sweetness and agave greenness pair well with the calcified cheese notes of the base sour. Insect repellent and wood glue remain overwhelming. Though the palate is tolerable for the most part, and surprisingly reserved for heat, it is still difficult to get through; grossly funky is a strange term but it seems applicable here. Rotten fruit notes linger throughout, and coupled with the bizarre complications of the tequila barrel this profile is one of the most unfortunately unusual in my memory. Points for weirdness.

375ml shared by Brad. Massive new school rum cocktail style beer. Massive, sweet. Nice agave tone. Sugary, but very enjoyable.

DYCSoccer17 (3391) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 1, 2015
10 ounce sample on tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma is very sweet and sugary. Vanilla extracts are here. Caramel and toffee are also strong. Really don’t get much of the barrel in the nose. Super sweet. Rather transparent mahogany colored body with a small cream-colored head. Starts with significantly sweet chocolate and toffee flavors. Light roasts in the middle. Tequila flavors come through in the end. Warming. A big, decadent beer. A little too sweet, and just too much.

gunnar (5880) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours almost clear very dark ruby with a small creamy beige head. Aroma of dried fruits, red ripe fruits, raisins and alcohol with malty and coffee roast. Taste is deep red fruity with an sweet alcohol note, vinous body, with light roasted malts, lovely beer.

Flaska från Galatea/craftbeer. Tack för att jag fick hjälpa till Daniel! Ganska muggig smutsbrun vätska med lågt skum. Väldigt speciell doft som jag antar har att göra med agaven. Jag tänker kaktus, lite anis, fat. Smaken är söt men med en syrlighet tätt intill och mycket värmande alkohol som är väl integrerad. Tänker lite på cuvée de Tommes kvaliteer men där är bären och syrlighen mer framträdande. Känns som ett typiskt LA öl och även om det inte är deras bästa så det annorlunda, kul och väldigt gott.

Very good, for me all about the aroma and the finish. Both carry the extra funk delivered from the tequila barrels, although I can’t say it immediately makes me say, Tequila!, instead it just adds some playful complexity that’s hard to pin down. The finish is looooong.

SlackerMads (1835) - DENMARK - FEB 11, 2015
Bottle, 2014 vintage. Hazy/murky brown with a medium sized quickly diminishing beige head. Strong and peculiar nose; wood, alcohol, earth, forest. Quite tart and light bodied for the abv. Raisins, wood, glue, earth, alcohol, lime, pepper. Carbonation is a bit fizzy, but it works fine. Interesting. Gums tingle from the alcohol. It is an odd one, but I kind of like it.
