Tan head. Dark brown nearing black color.

The tequila shows, but it has a lot of spice. Caramel and chocolate. Fairly thick. The tequila is actually enjoyable here. Oaky.

Very unique but enjoyable. I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

On tap at CW18 party. Nice tequila notes which help offset the sweetness of the base beer nicely. I get a lot of barrel without an excessive amount of that tequila bite which is pretty much ideal.

A small pour at Central Waters' Anniversary Party. Half finger white head, dark brown body. Fair retention, some lacing. Smells of tequila, caramel, toffee, whiskey, oak. Intense, a lot of stuff going on here. Flavour is somewhat tequila forward, though certainly not salty, caramel and toffee. Barrel oak. Touch of vanilla. On the sweeter side, but thankfully not too much tequila made it across. Mouthfeel is fuller bodied, a bit too syrupy for me, could use more carbonation. On the sweet side. Looking forward to trying this one again.
