On tap at the Draught House at the 43rd Anniversary party.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is a mix of lightly roasted malts with just a little bit of cocoa, as well as a little bit of oak and some spice. For a beer that has more than 8 percent alcohol you can't really detect any in the aroma.

The flavor is where the tequila aging becomes more evident. I get quite a bit of earthiness and oak in the flavor, as well as some of the lightly toasted/roasted malt from the aroma. There is a little bit of spice in the flavor, possibly from the barrel aging. The chocolate from the aroma was not really present in the flavor. The alcohol is well hidden.

Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

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.

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.
