Appearance: Pours brown with a bubbly tan ring.

Aroma: Banana, chocolate, juicy fruit. Taste. Chocolate, dark bread, banana burnt roast,oak. Mouthfeel: Full bodied modest carbonation. Overall: Very interesting and complex. Between the buckwheat and the tequila fruitiness, its one of the most bizarre strong stouts Ive ever had, and I mean that in a fun way.

Draft pour at Bottleworks, from their anniversary party. Glad this survived the storm! Pours black. A heavy booze aroma to this. Some chocolate. Flavor is extremely thick, with vanilla, graham cracker, chocolate, cinnamon, and cookie. Dessert stout for sure, and delicious. Late coffee addition late. Sweet, but not too sweet. Boozy, but not too boozy. Fun, and delicious.

Bottleworks, Seattle. Ring of tan foam, heavy dark body. Heavy, rich malt and molasses nose. Very rich sip, complex and oddly bright for the abv. Dark caramel, biscuit, chocolate cookie. Cool, light touch for the weight. Cool heavy and interesting. Frosting on your dessert beer.

Bule (2059) - California, USA - SEP 13, 2016
22oz bottle of 2013 release. Pours a black color with a bit of head. Wonderful sweet caramel aroma. Smooth roasted malt and nice tequila barrel flavor. It all balances so nicely.

DocLock (10346) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2016
Shared bottle at Craft. Turbid and thick blackish pour with brown head. Nose was dark malt, oaky bourbon, tequila, cacao. tasted rich, heavy malty, with pronounced notes of oaky bourbon, tequila, cacao, coffee, and a dense finish.

wchesser (2033) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Birthday bomber. Pours oily black with coffee crema colored rim. Viscous for sure but not as thick as id expected. Nose is green tequila, rich fudge like chocolate, vanilla, oak. Taste is initially sweet, finishing clean with and slightly bitter from dark and ashy malts. Long lingering fudge, oak, and tequila finish. Alcohol is warming in the back of the throat but not overpowering. Agave presents with an earthy, spicy honeyed note. Incredible beer.

Marheb (5547) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 27, 2016
(En ft Toronado SD le lendemain du 8e anniversaire): Un trs heureux mlange de malts pics, grills et collants avec un sucre dagave, drable et de petits fruits sombres. La texture est mi-moelleuse, mi-liquoreuse avec une finale de bois sec. Superbe.

Black with a light brown head. Aroma is chocolate fudge, vanilla wafer, bourbon, charred wood. Full bodied, syrupy mouthfeel, lightly roasty and boozy on the palate. Taste is chocolate fudge, agave, anise. Yum.

Beerman6686 (6573) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of tons of barrel, definitely mixed and not all whiskey. Flavor similar, dark fruity character, big blended barrel. Light oxidation. Good not great.
