Pricey at $5 for a 7 oz. bottle, jeez. Pours amber with very little head. Strange aroma. Oyster sauce, tabasco, spaghettios, malt. Spaghettios for sure (wife confirms this). Flavor is nice, with a scotch and malt backbone on top if some sweet dark candy flavors and, yes, a sweet tomato-ey essence. Somewhat unique, but one of the funkiest smelling beers I have encountered. Medium slick mouthfeel, with some creamy finish. Not bad, but a little weird.
