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.

Dark brown with crimson hues and a quickly fading tan froth.

Smells of grain, caramel,

Tastes of caramel, a bit of vanilla, slightly roasted malts, a dab of syrup and a sedate, lingering tequila character.

Light to medium on the palate and smooth and quaffable despite the ABV.

Liked this one more than I expected.
