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!!
(From 37.5cL bottle shared @ decadent symmetry tasting)

Dogbrick (7666) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2013
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.

Yorker (1110) - Herning, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2013
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.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 So after helping me move, Mike just had to crack a beer. Thanks a ton man! The Utah crew is second to none. I’m glad to have played a part, and I will always do so! Anyway, pitch black small white head. Awesome tropical fruit and barrel nose. Big flavor of heat, barrel, huge tropical tequila, chocolates, figs. Damn good.

June 2011. From bottle. Pours black with a being head. Licorice aromas with dark roasted malt and oak. The barrel ageing adds a bit of sweetness, but I’m not sure if I like this one better over the original Black Hole. definitely a winner no matter how you look at it.
