Noticed my local beer store has many more of these sitting on the shelf so I decided to crack my cellared one. Poured into a darkness snifter.
A: this thing is deep, black, and beautiful for a stout. Nice tan head that foams up to match. I was worried about a flat mess, but this has got me impressed.
S: Woah, what the hell. Fresh cut wood, lemon grass, charred beef, a touch of vanilla, slight cinnamon, wasabi and gumball. Yeah, crazy.
T: Much like the nose lots of madness going on. An almost puckering taste with a strong dominant character reminiscent of lime (and tequila for that matter). A slightly spicy burn runs through the top of the mouth and brings with it some more savory flavors. This is really all over the place, but the most surprising thing is how it's most lime/lemon tangy like than savory or sweet.
M: A really nice mouthfeel, a good amount of carbonation with some slick, medium-heavy body.
O: As usual, you can't say this Mikkeller beer reminds you of any other beer. And as usual, you'll likely either find it quite worthwhile or a huge waste of time. Mikkeller can divide the beer nerds like no other. If you like tequila, and you like mikkeller, I dont think this iwll disappoint.

Served in tulip, from bottle, 49°F
Didn't realize this was a discontinued beer when I recently purchased it. Have been loving Bourbon Barrel beers, and thought "Tequila Aged" sounded intriguing…
A: Black, half inch dark brown head. Great sticky lacing though the session.
S: something different, floral, sweet, hint of coffee… but almost an antiseptic finish on the nose as well.
T: upfront with sweet, astringent, and bitter(?). hard to describe, but I keep on sipping….
M: cloying, thick, and asking you to drink more.
O: different, yet still familiar. Very much a nice change from the bourbon barrel aged items. Glad I tried it, and wish I had gotten two when I found these at 5-points in Athens, GA recently.
