On tap at the Draught House at the 43rd Anniversary party.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is a mix of lightly roasted malts with just a little bit of cocoa, as well as a little bit of oak and some spice. For a beer that has more than 8 percent alcohol you can't really detect any in the aroma.

The flavor is where the tequila aging becomes more evident. I get quite a bit of earthiness and oak in the flavor, as well as some of the lightly toasted/roasted malt from the aroma. There is a little bit of spice in the flavor, possibly from the barrel aging. The chocolate from the aroma was not really present in the flavor. The alcohol is well hidden.

Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Black pour with a beige one-finger head. Aroma of alcohol, vanilla and roasted malt. Strong flavor of tequila, oak, and roasted malt. Has a slightly spicy flavor that comes out mid-taste. Finishes with a big, strong and spicy tequila flavor. Really good.

L - Pours black with one finger light khaki head. Decent retention and lacing.

S - Light roasted malts, pleasant oak, vanilla and some tequila. Not overly complex and the flavors don't really jump out at you.

T - More lager qualities here. The roasted malts and oak kick in along with some tequila spice.

F - Light bodied and medium carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden.

O - Interesting combo of styles and aging here. It really all works well with a black lager that is tequila barrel aged.
