4.16/5 rDev +3%
Pours an opaque super dark brown with no head. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, brown sugar, molasses, agave, tequila, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, toffee, brown sugar, tequila, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a very nice use of tequila barrels that gave the finished product a distinct tequila aroma and flavor while still allowing other aspects to come through.

Pours a dull mahogany hue a murky clarity. Nose is vegetal and vinous with a hint of sour milk. Taste is interesting - tannic, acidic, agave nectar and raisins are most prevalent in the flavor profile. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body and acidic with a residual alcohol burn at the finish. Overall - this is just a weird beer. Not bad, but not my thing.

Reviewed from notes. 375ml C&C bottle.
A: Pours a light brown with a light tan head which fades to the rim and leaves spotty lace.
N: Spices, sweet caramel, faint tequila booze, aged oak, fruity.
T: Well balanced, aged woody tequila with malty sweetness and raisins/fruity. ABV is noted.
M: Full body and light carbonation. Finishes sweetly sticky with boozy heat and lingering fruits.
O: I really enjoyed this one. Go slow, take your time as this warms. Wish it wasn't so spendy.

The Lost Abbey's Agave Maria, "malt beverage" brewed with agave syrup, and aged in Tequila barrels. 13.5% ABV.
A: Nice haze escaping the bottle. Pours a nice tamarind color. Just a little head, fades quickly. Decent arc of tiny-bubbled lacing, holds well. Deep tamarind-brown, with tons of grey sediment lining the bottom of the glass. Dirty yellow "cigarette in water" color in the dimple, also showing quite a bit of sediment.
S: Agave nectar prominent. Candyish sap. Slight oak and lime notes. Some subtle spice. Slight Reposado/Anejo notes.
T/MF: Reposado-ish flavor dominates the palate. Very dry agave flavor. More subtle lime. Sour molasses.
While an interesting concept, and I had to try it, since I haven't come across any other Tequila barrel aged beers, it's not as good as I'd hoped, and at $17, I would not buy it again. I get the feeling a Tequila barrel aged beer could be done much better. Maybe, they didn't did good barrels?
Poured from a 12.7 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.

The beer is murky and chestnut brown with a filmy tan collar. The aroma brings oak, cherry, vanilla, heat. Similar flavor with some tequila like notes in the flavor. A tad sweet, finishing with a tangy, oak, slightly tannic note. Vinous. Flavorful. I like this one. An interesting beer.
