Bottle at beertemple. Red color. Aroma of boozy red fruit, raisin, oak and raisin. Rich taste of smooth boozy red fruit, oak, vanilla, spices, cinnamon, raisin, dades and a long rich finish. Another hit. pineypower (3352) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Bottle. Pours out a muddy brownish color with a small off white head. Aroma is of caramel, tequila, agave syrup, dark dried fruits, alcohol, some barrel. Taste is strange, some tart citrus notes, caramel, dried fruit, tequila, alcohol warmth, some barrel notes and lingering alcoholic heat with some lime notes.

375 ml bottle. Thanks Euphemos for this!tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Dark brown color with a small tan head.
Vinegar, red berries and tartness in the aroma.
Cherries, tartness, sourness, mild sweetness and red wine in the flavor.
You can hardly notice the 13.5%. Amazing flavor.
bottle to sampler and this was a strange tasting but understood the flow of flavors. immediately I got the agave not like the liquid but sinking your teeth into the plant. you get the tequila flavor and the plant flavor and some earth. then it flows to the oak and then the booze. strong flavors all the way through. different but very good.

From notes. Gus cracked this 375 mL bottle at his house for a tasting to sort out the Bruery beers we have to get. The pour is a dark reddish brown color with a small light tan colored cap of head that falls flat pretty quicky. The aroma is really different wit hthis one. There is a definite presence of agave. Less tequila, but the plant is definitely present. There is a good bit of spice to it and a booze for sure. There is a light vanilla that comes in about half way through and just seems a little out of place. The flavor follows suit. There is a heavy agave right at the front. The caramel and tequila roll through a strong woodiness and finish up with a light vanilla, and a little confusion. This is a little messy, especially if you don’t like tequila. The mouth feel is thin and slick with a big time lack of body and a brighter carbonation that feels weird in the mouth. The aftertaste is lingeringly tequila and just not good. This one is something else, that’s for sure. solidfunk (9797) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2016
Big syrupy meltingpot of sensastions here. Pours dark brown with good head and lacing. Caramelized malt is big, naturally, but booze is well hidden. Agave probably does this some good. Sweet finish. Tap at Sovereign Savor event. fkoolen (1427) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2016 37,5cl bottle at home. Very dark brown colour, beige foamy head that leaves a nice lacing. Ripe, alcoholic agave, pineapple, mango in the nose, slightly milky sour note (off note, imho). Taste is more balanced, fruity sweet, nice sour edge, can?t really get the tequila though. Not too balanced. Big body, medium carbonation. deanso (10356) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - APR 29, 2016
