375 picked up by Deggar and shared tonight by Buckeyeboy... Thanks guys!! Pours clear orange with a nice white head and lacing.. Tequila notes are pretty heavy especially with warmth.. lime zest helps moves this into a more familiar territory.. Unique is an understatement.

Serving: 12.7 oz corked/caged bottle poured into a 7 oz Libbey Embassy snifter.

Appearance: Murky bronze-brown with a light, tan head that quickly recedes to hazy cap and spots of lace.

Smell: Sweet, malty, boozy with hints of vanilla, oak and agave.

Taste: Rich and malty while restrained in sweetness; toffee, vanilla, toasted grains. Oak and agave cut through the malt base with woodsy tannic and pleasantly savory vegetal notes; lime is less obvious, but seems to round out the flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a smooth, slightly sticky feel and moderate carbonation. Slight alcoholic burn.

Overall: A solid, malty brew with clear tequila notes (vegetal agave) that add interest alongside the growing range of bourbon barrel brews.

Very interesting brew with clear tequila notes in aroma and taste, as well as a bit of lime. Too strong an abv for my tastes, but worth trying as a well-made, unusual beer

Amber colored, medium light head. Aroma has a light undertone of vanilla and coconut with some tequila essence. Up front bit of tang from the lime with a smooth mid body of toastiness and malt. Unique and interesting to try!

It's strange, but it works. Great nose and flavor. Lime, obviously, and some sharp notes from the alcohol, but it's quite tasty. A little murky in appearance, and with a medium body. I would never have expected this to come together like it has, but stranger things have happened.

Thick beer with a soapy head. Tequila barrel shines through on the nose. Taste like a lightly hopped strong ale, key lime pie, rum, sugar, brown sugar. Pretty tastey.
