3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12.7 oz bottle, itís as close to black as can be ... and yet still be brown. A HUGE, frothy, medium brown head slowly dissipates and laces nicely on the glass. Aroma is of caramel, roasty malt and earthy. Maybe cocoa and vanilla? Tasting this beer is a relief, because I was afraid that it would be a bit boozy given the fermentation in tequila barrels. But itís not. What does come through is a slight saltiness, followed by a little sting from the many chilies used in the brewing process. Not sure if itís the chilies or the carbonation, but itís a bit lively on the palate, and itís a bit sticky too. This is one of those beers where I wasnít sure if Iíd like the unusual combination of ingredients. In the end, Iíd say itís a winner. But I wish I knew that the "non-tequila" version was like.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with BBGTC. Slow gusher. Pours a pitch black body with a massive creamy off-white head. Nose is tequila agave tones, chocolate, coffee, red fruits, spices, herbs, wood and hints of wood, chili, red peppers and vegetables. Taste is spicy cinnamon notes, herbs, red peppers, grass, chocolate, syrup, coffee and hints of nutmeg, red peppers and faint chili. Full body, soft to medium carbonation. OK, but I prefer the regular version.

Very dark with a heavy creamy head. Very strong coffee chocolate taste. Would be a good desert beer after a Mexican meal.

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.
