COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
15 years ago I racked my very first beer into an oak barrel. That same year, Bottleworks opened their doors in Seattle, WA and started selling amazing bottles of beer. It’s purely a coincidence of course, but nonetheless... Where once there were few purveyors of these great beers and fewer still brewers producing oak aged beers, there are many who have joined the party. Yet, Bottleworks remains and institution in this city and we’re proud to call them friends, acquaintances and continued supporters of our craft. In your hands you have 15 years of experience, dedication and commitment to being more than average. We’ve never made a beer aged in Tequila Barrels but we’re sure you’ll find it exceptional for the flavors it holds and the stores it tells. Listen carefully and you can hear the Agave whispering your name as it did ours when we blended this batch from 12 separate oak barrels. Cheers to Vern and the entire Bottleworks crew on the first 15 years. We look forward to 15 more! - Tomme Arthur

On tap at Bottleworks, Seattle. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is bourbon, dark fruits, candies. Similar taste with a slight booziness and chocolate notes. Amazing.

luttonm (6547) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2017
Bottleworks, Seattle. Off-white soap bubbles, malty rich red-brown. Huge boozy raisin nose, figs, prunes. Rather still, heavy fruit cake, heavy fruit malt liquor. Rather clean and rich. Heavy and still. Cool fruit leather with a bitter, hard fruit skin edge. Harsh sweet edge; only later do I read tequila barrel and it all comes together. Very nice strong beer. Intriguing.

nickd717 (4769) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 9, 2016
750ml bottle from Bottleworks. Dark brown color with a fading off-white head. The aroma is big tequila, oak, roasty notes. The flavor has sweet agave, mezcal, really raw. Hot and boozy, fairly carbonated, especially for this brewery known for Bonneville salt flat beer. Medium full bodied, big and boozy. Deece, but not a-ballz.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear reddish brown color with an average brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Very complex dark fruit, caramel, wood and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.
