Today we tap a small keg of Spanish Cedar / Añejo Tequila aged Denamelizer IIPA.  I think Spanish Cedar was domesticated just for use with hoppy beers - the pungent, spicy character of the wood just plays so well with hops.  The base beer is a 10.4% IIPA with 140 calculated IBUs, and the resulting mixture is probably about 10.7% ABV.  I don’t think any evaporation took place.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice note of cedar, a note of agave with a bit of backing pine and a hint of sweet grain. Flavor has tequila up front with light cedar with a bit of pine bitterness and a hint of grain. There is a bit of a boozy warming factor in the finish (a tad agressive), nice for fall/winter.
