COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust American Stout is aged in used Tequila barrels. As it matures, the toasted oak breathes in the beer, infusing the stout with hints of smoke and spice from its former life holding distilled agave. Pair with a San Francisco-style super burrito.

Nische (2576) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2017
Bottle shared with Pilsnertest. Black with a small off white head. Strong tequila and oak upfront with some roast, chocolate and vanilla followed by increasingly sour red fruit. A bit like infected BCBS but actually tasting good.

Black color qith a large head. Light fruity aroma. Fairly strong agave and oak flavor. Somewhat tart. Veey light roasted barley character. Almost seems like a soured beer darkened with carafa, not a roasty stout. Still quite nice.

37.5cl bottle from the BottleShop, Bermondsey. It pours a dark brown color with ruby edges and a medium brown head. Aroma is intense and complex, medium tart vinous acidic, lightly roasty dark and lightly sweet-acidic, with notes of red wine barrel, tangy red grape skin, light balsamic vinegar, light band aid and funk, dark chocolate cocoa espresso roasted wood and lemon leaves. Taste is also bold and complex, a great mix of dry roasty notes of ashes tequila wood light saltiness and cocoa, sweet notes of vanilla and hazelnut chocolate, prominent tart acidic notes of figs jam, plums, red wine barrel, light balsamic vinegar. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation and creamy texture. Overall, big bold and complex, easily the best tequila beer for me yet.

On tap at Elizabeth Station, pours black with a small tan / light brown head. Aroma brings out a nice mix of dark fruits, tequila and leather - really nice. Flavour is heavy, with notes of roast, leather, tart dark fruits and wood - not sure I would’ve guessed that this is tequila barrel aged, but the barrels indeed lend a wonderful complexity to this. Excellent.

375 ml shared by Willrunforbeer, dude, surprise tick! Thin tan head sitting on top a pitch black liquid. Aroma shows me Toasted oak, charred grain, mild tequila and some spice hints. I must say that I have never been much of a tequila fan. That said this is enjoyable to a point. The agave and spiciness really come out. Lasting through the entire sip. I feel the tequila really thinned out the body and texture of the stout. It lacks the full creamy texture that I love in Imperial stout style. Maybe if I had a San Francisco style Super Burrito in front of me I would enjoy this.

Bottle from my last trip to Vegas. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate, tequila, oak. Taste is a bit thin. There’s chocolate, coffee, oak, but there’s a tequila sourness that thins it out a bit. Probably a better brew before it went in the barrel. I’m just not a fan of tequila barrel beers.

Big thanks to Matt and Crystal for sharing! Dark pour, thin tan head. Vanilla, oak, chocolate, and booze, just the slightest hint of the tequila, which really adds something to it. Impressive!
