Taste Notes

Held the tequila oak out and experimented with just adding it to a couple of bottles. After 21 days, In the bottle we put the most wood (3 ~ 0.5 inch pieces), the wood started to add some interesting additional layers of flavor. In the couple of bottles we opened sooner than 21 days, the flavor contribution was negligable. Next time we brew this beer, the tequila oak is going into the secondary or keg. Without the tequila oak this is a beautiful beer. The hop bitterness and the roasted malt flavors are in perfect harmony. There is a hint of hop aroma, in a future batch in which the tequila oak is not used, I will increase the aroma additions.
