Pije sie bardzo przyjemnie, wysokie nagazowanie ożywia piwo. Ciekawe bardzo dobre, mi podpasowalo. benpickens (530) - Camarillo, California, USA - MAY 29, 2017
Pours inky black with billowy porous head that holds well; brett on the nose; tart palate with undetectable tequila notes. Not a fan. Fujimo2000 (194) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Beautiful tequila aroma on the front end, beer is a little thin and slightly tart. Beautiful rouge color with very little lacing. Even with the tequila aroma, hides the high alcohol very well.

Bottle shared at KyotoLefty’s 10,000th rating celebration. Nose of big alcohol, figs, plums, all lightly phenolic. A melange of sweet fruit flavors, slightly cloying, mild bit of barrel. The tequila notes intrude a little too rudely here. Medium body. Probably too young. Needs to mellow a little more. KyotoLefty (10603) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2017
375 ml bottle, shared at my 10K rating celebration. Nose is tequila, chocolate, grapes, syrup. black and cloudy with lace. Nicely fruity but sweet and cloying and boozy too. Not my thing. BuckeyeBoy (8281) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 30, 2017
375ml bottle pours out a amber color topped with a small tan ring of a head. Nose has a lot goin on pit fruit rich malts barrel vanilla barrel notes and a bit of booze. Taste is more of the nice rich malts some toffee pitfruit vanilla from the barrel. furthur (1225) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - APR 4, 2017
Bottle, almost black redish brown beer, cream colored head fades to a persistent skiff of foam. Aroma is red wine, oak, malt, sour apples, hint of whiskey. Taste is red wine, toasted malt, sour apple and lime, black pepper, and a hint of tequila. The tequila is very subtle, I might wish for more because I like it, but the balance on barrel and malt and sour is quite nice on this. Palate is medium, carbonation about average, very fine.

375ml bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy dark brown, fizzy small head that disappear immediately, leaving no lacing. Tart and woody aroma, apple cider vinegar, dried fruit, oak, red wine and gentle notes of tequilla. Medium carbonated, tart and heavy mouthfeel. Very tart citrus taste, lime, green apples, oak, red wine, herbal, mild tequilla with hints of chocolate in the background, the alcohol is well hidden. Tart and dry finish.
Tricky brew this, not what you expect after reading the description from Lost Abbey’s website "Agave Maria has hints of black pepper, sweet sugar, oatmeal, and oak with an earthy, bitter smoked chocolate on the finish."
