Wow this is agressive. Aroma of prune juice, honey, pumpernickle loaf soaked in grape juice. Taste is very sweet mild tartness and really heavy on raisins. Overwhelming and aggressive but does get smoother as it warms.

Bottle 375ml. Thx Fred82.
Pours dark brown with low beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of vegetal stuff, alcohol. Taste is of acidity, vegetal stuff, alcohol. Weird. Palate: Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Alcohol warmth. Overall: Well. OK I guess. Boozy.

12.7 ounce bottle thanks to Alen. Pours a dark red brown color with a medium white head. A really unique nose of wood and sour strawberry. Rich malty base, chocolate, caramel, big oak, the tequila is really big but there is no heat, more fleshy slightly sour cactus, tastes a bit like sour berries. I’m gonna see our Lady on the label as a reverential cheers- Salve Regina Mater misericordiae. Very sticky sweet beer, but very drinkable. Dangerously so.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a two-finger light tan head leaving some lace. Very dark color, no highlights, yeast left in bottle. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Sour ale nose, flavor is almost like a sour ale but more a sweet & sour ale. Clean finish. No alcohol burn - the very high (13.5%) ABV is hidden. Seriously expensive at $18.99 for a caged & corked 375ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, MA.

On tap at the Beer Baron. It pours a dark amber color with a khaki head. The aroma is nice with dark over ripe fruit basket, hints of cocoa and nuts. Super rich and inviting. The flavor is the same. Lots of rich syrupy fig, dates and molasses. Nuts and cocoa. Smooth on the palate and thankfully, not nearly as much booze as some of the other Lost Abbey barrel beers. Would recommend.

Really unique. Sweet and sour like a candy. Grassy but the sugary flavors really set it apart. Heavy hitting abv, but you wouldn’t really know it from the taste. You taste Tequila and in fact (take a sip out of the bottle) you taste salt when you lick your lips. Pretty neat. Bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ the brewpub, San Marcos. Aroma has licorice and tequila. Feels sweet. Flavour has strong tequila notes, sweet malt and licorice. Too sweet and sticky, drinkability suffers.
