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 (1833) - 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.

1/7/15. 375mL bottle thanks to Carl! Murky amber brown pour with a small khaki head, mild lacing. Strong aroma, a touch boozy, malty, caramel, dark fruits, a whiff of honey, a hint at tartness? Nice flavor, complex mix of dark fruits, maltiness, caramel, agave, and a hint at tartness, actually reminds me of a margarita in a weird way. Not bad!

Mycket druvig lite spontanjäst känsla i aromen. Smaken likaså, känsla av tequilan

Något sur doft. Vitt skum, mörkbrun i färgen. Maltig sötma meden viss syrlighet. Sjukt väl balanserad! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

375cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours a thin translucent brown/garnet colour which strangely gives an almost stout like appearance once in the glass. Aroma is powerful malt, smoke and tequila with a hint of oakiness and maybe some straw/hay. Mouthfeel is quite full but not thick in any way. Head retention is exceptional for a beer of this potency and remains well after an hour - this is a sipper and possibly the most "meal-like" of all beers. Taste is so very different when let to breathe. Initial taste is hot with quite a peppery alcoholic burn. Once let to breathe and warm up a little the harshness subsides and the massive complexity of the beer shines through. Initial sweetness from the agave syrup and inherent maltiness of the beer transcends into a tobacco laced smokiness, funky barrels with the slightly dirty tequila notes reminiscent of earthy barrels. Massively different to any beer I have tried and definitely worth seeking out. Do not imagine this is a session beer or any where near; the ABV only tells part of the story - this is one massive beer and is hard work but worth every minute.
