Bottle at RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours a cloudy orange with small off white head. The aroma is strong agave and wood. Medium body, pepper, agave, oak, dry finish, very good. bytemesis (9815) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Bottle from Homer, 2014 vintage. Pours clear reddish hazel, small beige head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving decent residual and lacing. Aroma is definintely chili pepper, chocolate, vanilla, definite tequila notes. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium bitter, vanilla much less prominent than in base beer, tequila barrel adds some smoothing and oaky tequila notes -- chili peppers provide some flavor but only a hint of heat on the finish; a bit bell peppery, like bad coffee. Medium body. Mellower and better rounded than the base, less ABV burn, less vanilla. Definitely an improvement. Strykzone (7950) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Sampled at CBO’s tasting. I had reservations about this seeing it was an imperial red ale and was trying to do so much. However, it was a very pleasant surprise. Tequilla barrels work nicely, peppers, wood, chocolate, and earth. This is really good stuff. hopscotch (11556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle… RBWG 2105… This beer rocks!… Pours clear and burnt orange with a small, short-lived, white head. The aromatics are crazy-complex, featuring a swirl of vanilla, caramel, milk chocolate and amber tequila. Full-bodied and very smooth with modest carbonation. The flavor is a sweet, but not cloying fusion of cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla, caramel and tequila - without being boozy or hot. I’m not picking up any chili peppers here. There’s just enough hop/tannin/alcohol bitterness to keep all the sugar in check. The finish is bittersweet, a hint abrasive and slightly dry, but there’s also lingering vanilla, which I love.

This is a surprisingly fantastic beer. I normally dislike all beer aged in tequila barrels. I wasn’t expecting this. Wow! I couldn’t be any more pleasantly surprised. This is a world-class beer from the fine folks at Green Room Brewing! Way to go guys!

Clear golden with a small beige head, some lacing. Aroma of tequila and caramels. Flavor of tequila, chocolate, caramel and woody
Thanks to drowland for brew day share. Fun beer. Brown red pour. Aroma was tequila and chocolate which somehow worked. The pepper heat came through in the taste, which helped cut the sweetness. A little thin in the body, but still fine . drowland (9210) - Georgia, USA - SEP 28, 2014
9/28/14. 750mL bottle. Dark hazy red pour with a nice enough tan head, moderate lacing. Crazy aroma, surprised actually, I’m digging it... tequila obviously present, not overwhelming, some oakiness, sweet malts, chocolate poking through. Nice flavors, tequila is present, a light alcohol burn, oak, more chocolate in the flavor, peppers popping through nicely as well. Surprised how much I’m digging this!
