De cervecera Minerva(MEX) esta Strong Ale de 7% ABV bautizada como Imperial Tequila Ale(ITA), aejada en barricas de tequila y presentada en esta generosa botella de 650 ml, el estilo es menos intenso a una Barley Wine, el perfil es amplio pero debe destacar la maltosidad y algunos esteres de la fermentacin Ale, aunque las versiones modernas pueden tener un carcter mas lupulado, se aceptan sabores y aromas a alcohol por la intensidad que esta puede desarrollar, debe contener amplio cuerpo por la cantidad de malta que se emplea, probemos estacerveza. En apariencia es una cerveza con una delgada corona de espuma de perlas compactas cristalinas, baja retencin y adherencia en las paredes del vaso, poca actividad de carbonatacin, el color que posee es un mbar ligeramente turbio con destellos rojizos a contra luz, cuerpo mediano que para el estilo estara flojo. En aroma es dulce y resaltan las maltas aunque esta bien presente un toque herbal del lpulo, la madera es apenas perceptible, lo que se puede detectar es caramelo, melaza, tofee, azcar Candy, galleta inglesa, nuez y ciruelas, el carcter a alcohol esta bien potencializado por que aunque no es tanto hay algn elemento que lo resalta. En paladar es menos compleja que lo anterior descrito, una cerveza algo desbalanceada hacia el dulzor de la malta, muchos elementos como la madera apenas son perceptibles, hay ah un toque de amargor al final que alcanza a rescatar la cerveza y la nota alcohlica, se puede encontrar con azcar Candy, melaza, galleta inglesa, ciruelas, un toque de lpulo herbal, el aejamiento apenas se siente, su punto fuerte es el aroma, la permanencia en paladar no es la adecuada para el estilo y por ultimo el retrogusto es dulce tambien, por cuestiones de precio e ingredientes no es un mala cerveza solo no se adecua al estilo, muy econmica para ser una cerveza que fue envejecida y eso tambien es un punto a su favor.

AntonyWilson (292) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 31, 2016
660ml bottle: Pours a hazy copper with a good off white head that persists. Malty aroma with a slight fruitiness. Tastes of malt with a hint of dark chocolate. Some fruitiness from the hops perhaps. Medium bitterness, medium body and medium carbonation. Beer I would order again.

kerenmk (4644) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle sample at DSGs 10K tasting at the Dancing Camel. Thanks Alexey. Clear gold and headless. A little toasty but insignificant aroma that turns into a stink. Sweet and a little corny taste. Light body, corny finish.

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Cloudy amber. HOlds A Thin White head. Barrel aroma. Tequila barrel flavor is crisp and a few reading twist. A little sweet, criap, refresing and with mineral character. Pretty good. Medium light body and hides its strength well.
