The tequila barrels haven't made it better, the taste is a peculiar "light" taste which doesn't fit the beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Brewdog Camden. Pours a deep black color with a small brown head. Aroma is stunning, deep and compex. Tequila, wood, cocoa nibs, vanilla. Taste is on the sweet side with a moderate roasted malt bitter bite to it. Nice notes of wood and spirit over a thick bold layer of dark choloate. Body is full and thick with good carbonation. Outstanding. Definitely go for it if you get the chance to try it.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Dan’s, pour courtesy of Aaron. Thanks! Poured opaque black with a small brown head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is chocolate, tequila, and a weird dill pickle smell. Must be the mixture of the tequila and chocolate. Taste is wood, chocolate mint, herbal, and ash with a bittersweet dill finish. The taste of pickle in this beer is really off-putting for me and this is my least favorite variation. Even with all the weird nuances though, this beer is still drinkable. However, let this tequila experiment be a lesson for future barrel agings. It just doesn’t work.

Aroma is similar to the usual black hole with a slightly musty tequila note. Taste reflects this. Quite sweet on the nose,common with the black hole series.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pour out of 375 mL bottle, dark brownish black with thin tan head, aroma brings notes of dill, chocolate, dark fruit, tequila and agave notes, weird herbal and minty notes as well. Taste is some nice toffee, caramel, tequila, chocolate, coffee, hints of guava with a herbal note, finishing fairly sweet, something off about it.

Bottle @ Dan’s house. Black appearance with a brown head. Spicy, dill, cat piss, roasty chocolate, a touch fruity aroma. Spicy, thick herbal/spicy, spice cabinet, a bit syrupy, somewhat boozy, chocolate flavor. Not that hard to drink, but my least favorite of the bunch.

First the taste is sweet, followed by alcohol with a noticeable twist of Tequila, the aftertaste is evidently licorice. Thick in texture with medium carbonation. Fantastic beer.
