On draft at Whip In, Austin Texas.
Really nice tequila kick to differentiate it from the whiskey barrel crowd. pretty beer, The brewer Twisted X, referes to it as an imperial black lager and I agree.
I liked the color and sipping quality, I also really liked the tequila reminder that came after.

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.

No bottling date that I could find.

A: Pours a very dark brown; not quite black. Tall, fizzy light brown head. Quite good head retention with lots of spiderweb lacing.

S: Interesting. A little oaky with some burnt bread. Very light char. Maybe a hint of tequila but it's hard to tell.

T: A little tequila up front mixing with a charred bread and some nice mild fruitiness. Kinda reminds me of a jam of some kind. Charred bread with marmalade and a side of tequila? Now that's a beer I can get after. Nice clean aftertaste with just a hint of char and tequila.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and lightly ashy.

O: Surprised at this one. Tequila aged schwarzbier. Drinkable, complex and balanced. The flavors work. Nice.
