4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2015 Dark oily colour with small dark brown head, which immediately vanish. You can smell and taste dark chocolate and coffee. Light salty indeed, with notes of licorice and a spicy finish. The presence of tequila is well hidden, obvious is only in aftertaste. Also is 15% abv discrete. Excellent beer, for me the second one in this series.

330 ml bottle @ Cardinal. Pitch black body with a small tan head that disappears rather quickly. Strong aroma of dark malt, dark chocolate, coffee, dry fruit and pleasant warming alcohol. Flavor is very sweet, dark malt, coffee, dark chocolate, dry fruit, balanced bitterness, wood and warming alcohol with a hint of tequila. Full bodied and stron, long lasting aftertaste. Damn fine sipper.

Thank you Kraddel! 330 ml. bottle split by 2. Black with no head. Nose is thick warming, boozy in a good way, alcoholic, mocha, thick melted chocolate, spirit,… Taste is warming thick metled dark chocolate, mocha, super thick goo, mocha, warming, lots of spirit, not the same tequila quality as some other Mikkeller Tequila BA beers, light liquorish, molasses,… Very thick body. Not very complex but highly satisfactory if you are in the mood for a BIG beer.

Bottle. Inkblack. Roast, licorice, chocolate and coconut in the aroma. Alcoholic flavor with coconut, chocolate, coffee and tequila. Sweet, rich, warm but a bit over the top.

0,33L bottle (from bierkompass.de). Pours pitch black with brown head. Aroma is sweet, dark chocolate, roast, tequila, booze. The head doesn’t stay. Flavor is sweet and bitter, roast, dark chocolate, vanilla, booze. Finish is dark chocolate bitter. Overall: great brew, but not even close to the greatness of George! BA versions I have had.

Bottle split 3 ways. Viscous pitch black pour with a small tan head. Nose has licorice, some soy sauce, tar and light roast. Taste is pretty roasty, some licorice, smoke and a light alcohol burn in the finish. Good stuff!

33 cl. bottle poured in to a Snifter. Pitch black with a thin, tanned ring around the edges of the glass. Rich, roasted aroma with dark malts, tequila, vanilla, barrel, some booze, coffee, chocolate, lots of liqourice. Taste is bitter-roasted. Full body with an oily texture and a soft carbonation. Long lasting roasted finish with tequila barrels, booze and rich, dark malts. Big beer with lots of tequila barrel. Excellent Stout and my Mikkeller # 100.

Pitch black beer, almost no head. Nose is pretty malty, caramel, wood notes, tequila, vanilla. Flavor is pretty similar to the nose, but sweeter, with more booze, tequila and vanilla, some licorice notes. Malts in the flavor are almost chewy. Interesting stuff. Shared by martjoobolut, thanks!
