COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Schwarzbier has been "imperialized" (alcohol content increased) and then left to age in tequila barrels (used Jack Daniels barrels which are then used by Republic Tequila to age there tequila to Repasado or Anejo styles). Aging this unique beer in tequila barrels adds subtle flavors of vanilla and oak while the tequila adds a mild citrus/agave sweetness. At 8.2% alcohol by volume Senor Viejo is our strongest, most seasoned beer. About the name: Senor Viejo meaning "very old man" or "the old one". Schwarzbier, or "black beer", is a German dark lager beer. It has an opaque, black color and a full, chocolaty or coffee flavor. Although they share some similar flavors they are milder tasting and less bitter than British stouts or porters, owing to the use of lager rather than ale yeast and no roasted barley.

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 Iíll have to say I donít 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.

Brown pour with beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, a little oak. Taste is balanced, with a little coffee and oak; tequila is present but not overpowering. Enjoyable, refreshing.
