3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pitch black with a medium sized light brown creamy head. Ok retention and lace. Nose is sweet roasted malt and chocolate, spicy, cigar box, honey, light glue but in a good way. Aroma is pretty much the same, rather complex and the tequila becomes apparent as the beer warms up, though it is pretty discreet. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation. Finishes roasted dry and light bitter. Medium/full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Taste is medium sweet and bitter and light acidic. Pleasant and complex, could be interesting to try it against the regular version.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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
