Tap @ Homefield.dnstone (3524) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Pours deep mahogany with a musty prune and caramelized molasses nose. Flavor is nice, raisiny cocoa with a dry tequilla finish. Average mouthfeel. Not bad.
Deep brown in color with off-white head. Roasty with a touch of tequilla but not so noticable if you dont know about the tequila...and a touch of lager yeastiness. Light but roasty malt aroma.

Ooh, nice! The roastiness gives it more of a mescal feel than tequila, which is no bad thing. Interesting and unusual without tasting gimmicky. Itzjerm (3119) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2012
OK I’ll have to say I don’t like tequila, but I do love imprialized beers. Since this is a dark lager, it really lacks in the ale flavors... this allows the slight tang of tequila to stand out. nothing really impressive though... skip it. No aroma little flavor ... it is a lager though. Errl (2577) - Plano, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2012

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown-black with garnet-brown highlights deep in the glass and a lacy, fine-grained, creamy cinnamon-colored head. Nose is brown sugar, aged tequila, baking chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon. Not as sweet on the tongue as on the nose; there’s a definite agave overtone to the smoky roastiness of the schwarzbier that contrasts nicely. The flavor is complex; most of the nose elements are present in the mouth as well. The finish has more spice; along with the creaminess, there’s a spiked eggnog thing going on. I like it a lot.

Nose of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and suggestions of vanilla rise from a black hued pour with a large tan ring and minimal lacing. The taste is malt froward - chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, with hints of coffee and vanilla. As it warms it becomes smoother and more enticing. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a well crafted beer - easy on the palate, very approachable and very enjoyable. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - NOV 6, 2011
At gabf. Pours dark brown. Notes of coffee & bourbon on the nose. Palate has chocolate flavor with a good tequila burn. DrunkSanta410 (972) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 4, 2015
Tap at brewery. Slightly transparent black pour, tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, vanilla and oak. Smells great. Taste is oaky, vanilla and chocolate. Light coffee. Really nice flavors, lighter body and mouthfeel for a dark beer. One of the better offerings I’ve had here. sjohnny (674) - - JUL 19, 2014
Cola, earth, malt aroma. Pours very dark red almost black with a thick foamy light tan head that fades slowly leaving lots of foam on the glass. Light bodied. Thin mouthfeel. Earthy. Slightly sweet. Slightly bitter. A little bit of toast and oak and a hint of booze.
