Deep brown in color with off-white head. Roasty with a touch of tequilla but not so noticable if you dont know about the tequila...and a touch of lager yeastiness. Light but roasty malt aroma.

Ooh, nice! The roastiness gives it more of a mescal feel than tequila, which is no bad thing. Interesting and unusual without tasting gimmicky.

OK I’ll have to say I don’t like tequila, but I do love imprialized beers. Since this is a dark lager, it really lacks in the ale flavors... this allows the slight tang of tequila to stand out. nothing really impressive though... skip it. No aroma little flavor ... it is a lager though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nose of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and suggestions of vanilla rise from a black hued pour with a large tan ring and minimal lacing. The taste is malt froward - chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, with hints of coffee and vanilla. As it warms it becomes smoother and more enticing. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a well crafted beer - easy on the palate, very approachable and very enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown-black with garnet-brown highlights deep in the glass and a lacy, fine-grained, creamy cinnamon-colored head. Nose is brown sugar, aged tequila, baking chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon. Not as sweet on the tongue as on the nose; there’s a definite agave overtone to the smoky roastiness of the schwarzbier that contrasts nicely. The flavor is complex; most of the nose elements are present in the mouth as well. The finish has more spice; along with the creaminess, there’s a spiked eggnog thing going on. I like it a lot.
