3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle to sampler and this was a strange tasting but understood the flow of flavors. immediately I got the agave not like the liquid but sinking your teeth into the plant. you get the tequila flavor and the plant flavor and some earth. then it flows to the oak and then the booze. strong flavors all the way through. different but very good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes. Gus cracked this 375 mL bottle at his house for a tasting to sort out the Bruery beers we have to get. The pour is a dark reddish brown color with a small light tan colored cap of head that falls flat pretty quicky. The aroma is really different wit hthis one. There is a definite presence of agave. Less tequila, but the plant is definitely present. There is a good bit of spice to it and a booze for sure. There is a light vanilla that comes in about half way through and just seems a little out of place. The flavor follows suit. There is a heavy agave right at the front. The caramel and tequila roll through a strong woodiness and finish up with a light vanilla, and a little confusion. This is a little messy, especially if you don’t like tequila. The mouth feel is thin and slick with a big time lack of body and a brighter carbonation that feels weird in the mouth. The aftertaste is lingeringly tequila and just not good. This one is something else, that’s for sure.

Big syrupy meltingpot of sensastions here. Pours dark brown with good head and lacing. Caramelized malt is big, naturally, but booze is well hidden. Agave probably does this some good. Sweet finish. Tap at Sovereign Savor event.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2016 37,5cl bottle at home. Very dark brown colour, beige foamy head that leaves a nice lacing. Ripe, alcoholic agave, pineapple, mango in the nose, slightly milky sour note (off note, imho). Taste is more balanced, fruity sweet, nice sour edge, can?t really get the tequila though. Not too balanced. Big body, medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, dark reddish brown in color and topped by a small, smooth head of tan colored foam that settles quickly to a thin film and leaves sticky lines of lace on the glass. The aroma is big and bold with notes of sweet agave, wood, tequila, burnt caramel, some earthy spices, booze, and vanilla from the oak. The flavor follows with sticky Agave syrup, burnt caramel, boozy oak, tequila, spice, and a touch of vanilla to try and balance things out. Big, sticky, and lots of Agave and tequila flavors. Medium bodied with subtle carbonation that leads to a lengthy Agave and oaky finish. Nice use of the Tequila barrel and added a lot of flavor, but I found it a bit too much for me. Still an interesting beer.

Flaske 355ml spandert av Rune under romjulslunsj i WC-veien 30 Des 15. Ultradyp mørk amber. Lett syrlig bæraroma. Filmskum. Smaken balansert. Plommer. Syrligheten holder seg men er ikke påtrengende. Svakt tørr avslutning. Er det alkoholen som skinner gjennom? Ellers merkes den ikke.
