Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: dwagner003 on 03-26-2014

Using a blend of Anejo and Reposado barrels and aged for a minimum of ten months, Agave Maria has hints of black pepper, sweet sugar, oatmeal, and oak with an earthy, bitter smoked chocolate on the finish. The base beer, a new Agave strong ale, was created specifically to pair with the spiciness of the Tequila, adding a sweet honey-like quality to the beer.

M - Medium-light body. Super smooth.

O - Outstanding. Great execution on an interesting experimental style.
