Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

From 10/11/14 notes. Thanks to Nugganooch for sending this out to me... thanks Dane! 375ml bottle poured into my Lost Abbey stemware.

Pours a medium brown color with a slight reddish tint, less than an inch of off white bubbles and low carbonation evident. Not quite flat but not very carbonated. Tons of tequila, oak, booze, dark fruit malts, sugar. Medium body and low carbonation, pretty hot.

Overall way too tequila foward for me; it dominates it and not much else going on. Hot and tough to drink a 375ml bottle by yourself...probably wouldn't seek t out again personally.
