Appearance is excellent with a thick creamy fluffy light tan head that lasts a long time, plenty of lace and an opaque black brown color. Aroma is dark malt vanilla oak Cocoa citrus and spice. Flavor is like aroma and all of those characteristics blend together in a very pleasing way. Palate is just right. Really an excellent beer not exactly perfect but damn close.

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. degbert (1773) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2014
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.

Brown pour with beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, a little oak. Taste is balanced, with a little coffee and oak; tequila is present but not overpowering.

Ooh, nice! The roastiness gives it more of a mescal feel than tequila, which is no bad thing. Interesting and unusual without tasting gimmicky. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2014
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. roxtersoxter (358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Pours very dark brown with medium tan head out of bottle. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, and slight hint of oak. Sweet malty flavor with very little hint of tequila.
