On tap @ Toronado in SF

A - Pitch black with a thin layer of light brown head.

S - Oak, light tequila, chocolate, roast. Lots of barrel but not an intense tequila aroma.

T - Big barrel notes come to the forefront immediately: Oak, char, and light tequila. Chocolate, roast and molasses are all present as well.

M - Full body. Smooth. Light carbonation.

Had this on tap at the brewery the morning after the FW Invitational cause I missed the pour there. You could definitely smell the tequila barrel in this. What an interesting taste too, as one wouldn't necessarily think that tequila would match well with an imperial stout. The flavor had that distinct bite of agave that was smoothed over by the warmth of the alcohol and roasted espresso flavor. The people who get to try this in bottle at the publican places where it was eventually be distributed will not be disappointed!
