Pours clear auburn w. lasting small head. Aroma is very malty with roasted malt, lots of ripe dark fruit, rye’ish, booze, vinous, licorice, peat and oak. Taste is heavy sweet and bitter. Body is full, texture is thick, carbonation is soft. Finishes roasted and very warming with tequila notes.

markextrae (940) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2014 Shared bottle with 2 other friends. Poured a slight murky Black colour with a non lasting head. The alcohol and tequila takes over the flavours of this one, some dark malts, chocolate, ash, sweet caramel, earth. This one is to much and not Nice anymore. Have had other Black versions and they were all Way better as this one

Ibrew2or3 (6851) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2014
37.5cl bottle courtesy of sebletitje! Thanks. It pours with a clear deep mahogany colored body that supports a light tan head. The aroma offers up caramel, dark roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, boozy hot barrel notes and peat that has an earthy slightly smoky sort of barrel sensation to it. The taste delivers similar notes such as caramel, dark roasted malts, some burnt malts and then boozy barrel notes. To midway the barrel character starts to shine with tequila barrel tartness, mild earthy peated whiskey and surprisingly restrained booziness for such a big beer. Into the finish a pleasing chocolate note comes out of nowhere to help pull this thing together. Great sipper.

tom10101 (2726) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
On tap @ Les Fleurs du Malt (Lyon). Black with a small persistent beige head and some lacing. Aroma is boozy (of course) with roasted malt and green peppers. Taste is of alcohol (boozy), malt sweetness (though it’s mostly hidden by alcohol), roasted malt, green peppers, light bitterness and a burning finish. Full bodied. Low carbonation. It’s not awful and, in some ways, in tasty. But it’s not actually fun to drink. Too boozy. Nothing stands out. Still a decent sipper.

Bottle thanks to Rainer. Pours a cloudy brown with beige head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is peat, smoke, and oak. Medium mouthfeel with strong peat, booze, smoke, and alcohol burn. Good.

Plovmand (6392) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. The aroma is oak, tar, smoke, roasted malts, soy and fruits from the tequila barrel. The flavor is extremely powerful. Loads of alcohol but also dark fruit, soy, smoke, soy and a pleasant hoppy bite. Beer taken to its extreme. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
