Liam's bottle, part of the Black Hole blind tasting.
Near black in colour, tan head with some lace on the glass. Smell is roasty and charred, some barrel scents, tequila (I guess agave) is there but quite nice and not overpowering, peppery and spicy notes in this that were not in any other Black Hole, some coffee as well. Taste is lightly sweet with chocolate and coffee, tequila and agave, light vanilla with a roasted/charred finish, lightly fruity in the aftertaste unlike the rest in the series. Nice feel, full thick body, lighter carbonation than some of the other Black Holes as well. The thing I liked about this was that it was quite different than the rest of the series without it working negatively like the Peat Whiskey version, This was one I thought I would enjoy the least but I was very wrong, would love to see more Tequila barrel stuff for sure.

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.
