Oakes (16655) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2017
Amber-brown. No head. I actually get some sort of serrano stuff, with wood and agave. The agave is fairly heavy as is the wood character. The malts are sweet, but only a touch sugary. Alcohol is fairly heavy on the finish. That sugary, golden agave syrup sweetness kicks in. A barley wine with a really unique character. The toasted chile character is an interesting nuance because this beer is one of the most balanced chile beers, yet with the chiles still being really prominent. This is a pretty good experiment.

mcberko (16263) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2017
12 oz. bottle, pours a fairly clear bright dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out lots of wood, light tequila, a touch of agave and caramel - no hint of chili peppers. Flavour is quite spicy, with lots of chili peppers, followed by caramel and light tequila. Low sweetness, with a very spicy finish. Unusual as hell -- the spicy peppers stand out and work well-enough, finishing on tequila barrels. Solid stuff.

rosenbergh (11289) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2016
Draught at the Avery Brewing Co, Boulder, CO. Cloudy red brown color with a small light tan head. Tequila, some herbs, sweet malt and some sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is strong alcohol, boozy, malty and boozy again. Really boozy. A bit too boozy to be enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerandBlues2 (12766) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours brown with a medium, tight-bubbled off-white head, long retention with light lacing. Aroma is moderate agave syrup and tequila, light lime notes, wet oak, light Chile peppers, medium cookie and bready malt with light brown sugar and vanilla notes. Flavor is spicy tequila and Chile peppers, sweet yet thin agave syrup, lightly cooked with oak notes, faint lime and salt, medium bready malt and figs, and a sweet finish. Full body with medium carbonation and alcohol warmth.

markwise (5382) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours a mostly clear orange copper with a thin white head. Nose is caramel, toffee, agave, earthy sweetness, oak, vanilla, and some earthy spice. Flavor is sweet malt, toffee, earthy sweetness, slight chile, big oak, vanilla, and i think it is the yeast that is trying to dry it out so significantly. Medium in body and a unique one to sit and ponder.
