3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased at Ledgers in Berkeley. 2011 Vintage. Aroma has light roasty chocolate notes initially, before a sweet, boozy tequila note takes over. The tequila is strong. Opaque black body with a small, quickly dissipating light tan head present. Starts a bit sweet, before this becomes pretty thin, tinny, and a bit astringent in the middle. Finishes with a little tequila flavor, but mostly just sort of thin, watery, and metallic throughout. It’s ok, but not $1/oz good.

Bottle share. Almost black, ruby edges, thin oatmeal colour cap leaving a thin blanket. Aroma of tequila, wood, chocolate, prune, molasses, leather. Taste is sweet, and slightly sour. Smooth drinking from low carbonation.

Plenty of tequila in the aroma. A lot of tequila also in the flavour. A little sweet. Very unbalanced!

Bottle shared with Simonsen, edvard & daje
Black, thin tanned head. Smells of pine cones, menthol, coffee and malts. Heavy sweet, some nasty tequila, pine and coffee. I had no expectations about this one; tequila is the booze of the devil. Still, not all that bad. The aroma was very nice

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Jet black colour, firm tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, wood, wooden barrel notes. Sweet flavour, mocha, vanilla, alcohol, light tequila barrel notes. Finish coffee, mocha, vanilla and malts. I love tequila so I had to buy a bottle when I saw one, but damn, it does deliver. Nice!!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at the "Far Out! Space-themed beer tasting" on 10/01/2013. The beer pours pitch black with a medium thick khaki head that diminishes gradually. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and a bit of soy sauce. Full-bodied with flavors of dark chocolate, oak, honey and subtle tequila. The finish is burnt malt and dark fruit. Not being much of a tequila fan, I was a little surprised to find I liked this treatment the most of all the ones we tried. Very good all around.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a lot of sediment and a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is minerals, tequila, roasted malt, and coffee. Flavour is much like the aroma – with some warming alcohol and a bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12th January 2013
Opaque black beer with a big fluffy tan head. Mild tequila on the snout along with a touch of wood. Palate is soft, airy and semi dry. Sweet tequila turning miore acrid - earthy and vaguely citric. A little lactose and a trace of smoke. Finishes smooth and semi dry. The tequila and dark malts marry up well here.
