4oz pour from brewery. Smells and tastes like nothing else I've ever experienced. This beer is so complex I can't describe. Very sweet and syrupy with cumin coming through. The tequila presence is the perfect Addition to it's complexity 4.50

Had it on tap at CBC 2015. I liked it pretty much. The different flavors worked out really nice and the beer was balanced and easy to drink. I don't know why this beer has such bad reviews.
