3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very dark brown beer, but not black. It has a quickly diminishing, light tan head. The aroma is of sweet black malt, milk and sugar. The taste is of wet barley, dry cocoa and bittering hops. It finishes with a punch and a slight burn. Good? That’s for you to decide. Satisfying?... you’re damn straight.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Draught House at the 43rd Anniversary party.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is a mix of lightly roasted malts with just a little bit of cocoa, as well as a little bit of oak and some spice. For a beer that has more than 8 percent alcohol you can’t really detect any in the aroma.
The flavor is where the tequila aging becomes more evident. I get quite a bit of earthiness and oak in the flavor, as well as some of the lightly toasted/roasted malt from the aroma. There is a little bit of spice in the flavor, possibly from the barrel aging. The chocolate from the aroma was not really present in the flavor. The alcohol is well hidden.
Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught) espresso brown pour with creamy tan head. Nose of graham cracker, toasted coconut, sweet chocolate, chocolate cream, rich, raisins, and a bit herbal. Taste of coconut, tons of oak, chocolate malt, cream, a bit lacking in chocolate flavor from what I expected based on the nose, and somewhat under-carbonated. Light body with an odd medicinal linger.

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.
