Bottle at RBSG. Medium depth brown color with a faint ring of tan head. Aromatic with the accents of the barrel treatment, light smoke and char, along with Tequila. Sweeter taste with more barrel accents. Dark fruits and toffee. The heavy sweet and fruitiness is eased by the barrel and a light char. hayduke (5731) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 29, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 This was a bottle share at RBSG 2017. Pours a dar brown with beige head. Nose is woody, with tequila and raisins for figs. Or both. Very full body. Flavor shows the same as aroma and the figs and raisins are joined bu dates. Finishes sweet and decadents. Blairgus (4615) - California, USA - MAY 6, 2016
5 May 2016, bottle at the Bruery. Brown and a bit hazy. Nose is nutty, alcohol, sweet woody malt. Med/thin body and mildly fizzy. Sweet, nutty, woody, some cactus. Nice. Alengrin (5891) - BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2016
At Bruery Sucré tasting in Bruges. Thin, quickly dissipating, off-white head over a deep bronze coloured beer, a tad darker than the New American Oak version. Aroma resembles the latter, but more heavily burdened with sharp, ’white’, indeed tequila-like alcohol; same for the taste, where the subtleties of the NAO version are drowned a bit by an early, strong, tiresome alcohol flavour (tequila-ish alright, but a bit gin-like as well). Complex, but too alcoholic for me. 48FanInCali (857) - California, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle - very similar to their other Anni beers. Nice and sweet with a thick mouthfeel. Booze is a little more pronounced in this variant IMO. Although the barrel is certainly present, it is difficult to tell that it’s tequila. Solid.

Ruby brown with minimal head. Aroma is brown sugar, soy sauce, dates, caramel, possibly a hint of tequila. Full bodied, sticky mouthfeel, sweet on the palate with a lightly boozy warming finish. Taste is brown sugar, lightly toasted wood, dates, caramel, hint of chocolate. Not really any tequila character. GenDV138 (7828) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2015
750 ml green waxed bottle poured into a Bruery tulip. Dark brownish with almost two fingers of beige to light tan head. Aromas of caramel, dark fruit, tequila, sweet syrup, some lime-like note. Tastes of caramel, dark fruit, tequila, oak, some sweet syrup and brown sugar. Medium-full body with a dry finish. Doesn’t drink like 15% to me, fantastic! bytemesis (9502) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy reddish hazel, medium beige bubble head with good residual and decent lacing. Aroma is dark sugars and tequila, oaky and a bit smoky. Flavor is fully sweet, light bitter, dark caramelized sugars with a charred oaky tequila/mezcal thing going on as well. Orange peels, dates, raisins and more tequila. Agave syrup. Interesting.

750ml bottle pours a dark brown color without much head. Lots of toffee from the sucre. But also some of the tequila flavor that just doesn't blend in well.

Bottle. Color is murky dark red with tan solid head. Aroma of tequila and toffee. Taste is thick sweet burnt sugar with smokey tequila finish. Some vanilla also. The abv is hidden well.
