3.55/5 rDev -13.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 1
Appearance - Clear, dark amber body. Thick off white head with plenty of texture, lacing, and retention.
Smell - Nut, wood, tea. Something like taking a walk in an ancient forest. Mossy with just a touch of flora.
Taste - Extreme metallic taste. Might be a tainted bottle. I'm almost certain. But I'll let the review stand just in case, and come back and re-review this another time to be positive. The metallic taste goes away a little after each drink. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be the style, or of this is a result of their using well water in the brew, or if it's a bad batch. Not going to sink pour this though. Not bitter. Tastes like copper.
Mouthfeel - Full bodied, but not syrupy.
Drinkability & Notes - Almost undrinkable. Has some underlying character and notes that make this an interesting beer, but the metallic taste ruined this beer completely. I couldn't find any identifying markings on the bottle other than "SI17J1" printed on the glass on the neck of the bottle, just below the foil.
Appearance - same
Smell - same
Taste - No metallic taste this time, but my wife says it tastes the same as last time. I have no idea how this is possible. Re-rating it from 2 to 4.
