375ml bottle poured into an Idle Hands tulip.

A - Cloudy, particulate filled body with a dark brown color. A thin white collar is all that is formed on a semi-aggressive pour. No lacing.

S - Wow...this is boozy on the nose! Practically straight tequila. Throw in a little brown sugar, burnt sugar and vanilla and you pretty much have it all here. I really get no beery aromas here - straight tequila and barrel.

T - Pretty much the same as the aroma. Tequila (good tequila anyway) up front and throughout to the finish. Very smooth, not at all boozy or harsh (as tequila can be) but with a noticeable warmth tending towards a burn at the finish and beyond. There is some sweet malt underneath that I think is smoothing things out, vanilla and burnt sugar...a bit crème brulee-ish...certainly dessert worthy.

M - Smooth tequila, warm and noticeably alcoholic. Medium/full body with a low, creamy carbonation like many Lost Abbey beers...just barely alive.

O - Nice dessert beer. Certainly recommend sharing the bottle. Feels, smells and tastes more like a shot of tequila than a beer. Not a beer to have before driving. Trying to finish this one by myself...not sure it is going to happen. I like this, but not something I need a lot of...especially before heading to bed on a work night.
