look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a tulip glass. No noticeable head, very black, some nice tan swirls on top with bubbles clinging to the side.

Smells really sweet. Some chocolate, oak, some small amount of tequila.

Taste is pretty sweet. Very dry finish. Chocolate and brown sugar is very dominant, tequila is there, nice oak notes. Something bitter that lingers at the end, too. Very sweet, happy to be splitting a bottle. Pretty interesting taste here. The alcohol shows up but it's not overpowering.

Pretty thick mouthfeel, coats the whole mouth and leaves that dry finish. Very warming and sticky. Probably it's best feature.

It's a decent beer, was hoping to pick up some more of the tequila barrels, they are mixed in with the base beer. Overall it's good, and happy I got to try it.
