Notes / Commercial Description:
Using a blend of Anejo and Reposado barrels and aged for a minimum of ten months, Agave Maria has hints of black pepper, sweet sugar, oatmeal, and oak with an earthy, bitter smoked chocolate on the finish. The base beer, a new Agave strong ale, was created specifically to pair with the spiciness of the Tequila, adding a sweet honey-like quality to the beer.

Pour: a nice dark drown with a slight reddish tint. Decent carbonation with nice lacing. Served from a corked & caged bottle & poured into a snifter glass.

Aroma: very boozy from the tequila barrels. Some dark fruits, caramel, molasses & more tequila.

Taste: wow!!! This is a sipper for sure! It's a big sweet & sour beer!!! It gets you in the cheeks from the sweetness & sourness from the agave & tequila. This is an amazing beer & gets even better as it warms up. You definitely get the heat from the barrels!!

Mouth: chewy, syrupy & rich medium mouth feel. Could be a little less carbonated to match the richness & sweetness but still feels good on the tongue.

Overall: this is a great beer!!! It carries so many characteristics from; the agave syrup, to the tequila from the barrels, to sweet & bitter dark fruits. It's a very complex beer but it's very well balanced!!! If you see this beer I strongly suggest you ignore the price & give it a try. You won't be disappointed!!!
