That a full on surprise. Pitch black pour with intense aromas of cocoa/cofee. Taste has an astringent from the tequila but there's so much softness in there to cushion it. Finish is a cash of that alcohol, and a big wallop of dry oakiness. Then as you ponder that there's the chilli heat under all the things prickling away..... it's all on!

Deep black little head. But great bottle and label. Rich decadent dark chocolate throughout. A touch heavy on the hot spices detracts from it being the perfect dessert beer

Samtzu (607) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 16, 2016
Tasting flight at garage project. Matched chilli and lime bar. Huge nose full of malts and a subtle tequila aroma. The beer goes from stout flavours to tequila back to stout then tequila again and finishes on stout. What an exceptional Rollercoaster of flavour.

Thanks Ryan. Pours much darker then I would have thought, very dark brown. The aroma is chocolate, chili pepper. The flavor is fruity, chocolate, chili. Warming alcohol. Very tasty.

My Bottom Line:

Heavy on the chocolate, this dessert-like creation finds complexity in its just use of hot peppers, alcohol heat and agave fruitiness.



Further Personal Perceptions:

-A slice of foam tops the brown-edged black.

-The mouthfeel is quite rich, but these chocolatey sugars are very pleasant.

-This will probably age very well.

-What a bottle/label design! Wow!



Bottle.
