Bottle from Beers of Europe. Deep Amber colour with a thin white head. Cherry fruit aroma. Sweet fruity taste with a sour finish. juiceisloose (1606) - Windermere, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2016
375 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, dark reddish brown in color and topped by a small, smooth head of tan colored foam that settles quickly to a thin film and leaves sticky lines of lace on the glass. The aroma is big and bold with notes of sweet agave, wood, tequila, burnt caramel, some earthy spices, booze, and vanilla from the oak. The flavor follows with sticky Agave syrup, burnt caramel, boozy oak, tequila, spice, and a touch of vanilla to try and balance things out. Big, sticky, and lots of Agave and tequila flavors. Medium bodied with subtle carbonation that leads to a lengthy Agave and oaky finish. Nice use of the Tequila barrel and added a lot of flavor, but I found it a bit too much for me. Still an interesting beer. Finn (8535) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2015
Flaske 355ml spandert av Rune under romjulslunsj i WC-veien 30 Des 15. Ultradyp mørk amber. Lett syrlig bæraroma. Filmskum. Smaken balansert. Plommer. Syrligheten holder seg men er ikke påtrengende. Svakt tørr avslutning. Er det alkoholen som skinner gjennom? Ellers merkes den ikke. Rune (14039) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2015
355ml corked and caged bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Vika about a year ago. A beige head reduced to a stable layer. Dark ruby coloured body, slightly hazy. Spotty lacing. Dry and tart nose, berries acidity and wood. Mid-tart berries to the taste buds joined by oak and raisin. Sweet and tart ending, long-lived. Full bodied. Likable and suitable with the Christmas pudding (shared with Finn and Vegard at romjulslunsj, Tromsø 30.12.2015). daje (4554) - NORWAY - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle. Muddy brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of oak, fruit, toasted malt, alcohol notes. Taste of dried fruit, lime, spicy yeast, mild sour cherry note. Good complexity with layers of fruits. Sweet start with a dry finish. Nice.

December 23, 2015 - bottle from Total Wine. Brown pour with some nice head, huge pop after taking out the cork. Aroma was malty, sweet, wood and some spice. Taste was a bit weird, had some of the sweetness, wood and spice, but the tequila was very strong and didn’t blend well with the other flavors. thomashall (1604) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle shared by Brad, thanks. Cloudy brown caramel pour. Strong tequila, wood aroma. Taste pretty much follows. Not bad. Ktwse (5815) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2015
Pours clear, deep brown with low, nearly flat, light tan head. Aroma of tequila, cedar wood, citrus, toffee, alcohol. Taste is initial mild tart with tequila barrel notes before the sourness builds into the finish. Lingering alcohol sweetness. Body is rich and somewhat sticky with soft carbonation.

Wow this is agressive. Aroma of prune juice, honey, pumpernickle loaf soaked in grape juice. Taste is very sweet mild tartness and really heavy on raisins. Overwhelming and aggressive but does get smoother as it warms. Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2015
