haukur (1270) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - DEC 5, 2013
Cocoa, spirit, chocolate and roast dominate the magnificent aroma. Very dark with a huge brown head. Stunning looks. There is a velvety dryness on the tongue. You can feel the tequila but not much. Incredibly heavy considering the abv. Very nice

queenholly (2861) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Draft @ FFFs. Coffee, sweet lactic chocolate aroma. Black brown with a moderate tan head. Coffee, chocolate, and ashy flavor. Body on the lighter side of full, soft carbonation. I didn’t get any spice or tequila, but it sure was tasty.

maekchu (1982) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle. Fumes, tequila, light chocolate, and strained prunes in the nose. Black with a fine tan head. Light red wine at first, with hints of vanilla, chocolate, mole, and a tiny punch of pepper in the finish. Medium body. Complex stuff. Has quite a mix of ingredients... that add up to something good (and hard to get a handle on) ... but not as compelling as Texas Ranger.

Pinball (10736) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2013
Pitch dark smooth light brown head. Aroma is roasted malts faint licorice herbal aroma. Flavor is very peppery malty. Licorice wood. Spicy herbal tastes okay but a little all over the place.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 25, 2013
Intensiver Schokoladenmalzantrunk, dezente Gewürznoten. Die Tequilalagerung ist nur wenig erkennbar, das Bier ist aber durchaus holzig. Vollmundig malzig, wenig bitterer und schokoladiger Ausklang. 11/12/12/12/13/12

Hair6a11 (1323) - Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle; Pour is murky dark brown with a two finger, fine bubbled dark khaki head in this glass - it retains fairly well, with some light spotting present here. We had this one after Texas Ranger and Chipotle Porter- The nose is barrel treatment initial - Tequila... I don’t specifically recognize initially.... but later. There is a hint of vegetable, chocolate, and mild roast here. The flavor profile was the highlight here; its bitter initial , chocolate, tequila barrel, vegetable, roast, with mild sweetness and a lingering finish with modest chili. I frankly thought this one was stunning - the highlight, and I think this is one of the rare brews I completely disagree with some of my ratebeer brethren based on the average

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottled. Poured deep brown with a sticky, well-retained dark tan head. The aroma picked up sweet ancho peppers, cocoa, and tequila with spicier peppers and a bit of vanilla bean accenting.. tequila took on a major role here, and it was definitely interesting. The flavor found more aggressive tequila and related oak than the nose indicated.. cocoa and fairly generic black, well-roasted malts supported.. bright tequila on the edges.. lots of dry oak, cocoa, and dried peppers on the long finish. Medium-bodied at most on the palate.. a little too sharp and a little too barrel-ly for my liking.. OK feel.

Opaque black - brown beer, massive tan head. Palate is softish, airy, light and semi dry. Interesting combo, this beer! Light touch of creamy dark malt well balanced with limey tequila. light herbs and a well judged pinch of light chilli. Softish and semi dry finish. Nicely joined up and original tasting beer.

Bottle @ Christers. Pours black with a creamy brown head, leaving nice lacings. Aroma of roasted malt, spice, chilli, tequila, quite some booze, dark chocolate, light vegatables. Flavor is malts, tequila, wood, spice, light chilli, dark chocolate, vegatables. Medium body, soft carbonation, warming alcohol in the finish. 231013
