Bottle shared by esp0r with me, Simonsen & Edvard, september 28th 2013. Black body, small brown head. Aroma of sour berries, vanilla, coffee, taste og chocolate, nettle, dark malt, nuts. tequila and roast in aftertaste. I’m not exactly a big tequila fan and feared the worst, though the beer is actually not that bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Brewdog Bar, Edinburgh, shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aromas of tequila, surprisingly strong. Taste brings the stout character - chocolate and dark fruit. Bit thinner than the cognac, but good. (30/08/11)

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.

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

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.
