The aftertaste was just pure iron. Like carbonated blood. (Dead unicorn maybe?)

No one else has mentioned it though, so maybe I picked up a bad six pack.

Unicorn Killer is a gleaming, clear orange-red with much the color and clarity of a garnet. An off-white head recedes to foam, which in turn leaves a thin ring where the beer settles and follows with some light spottiness.
Spices are strong on the nose, not overdone, sort of a mixed bouquet with some sweet and some more of the savory kitchen variety, but definitely featuring cinnamon on the forefront. There's a bit of flesh as well, with some maltiness holding up and giving some breads, caramel and brown sugar notes.
The flavor has more of a tang, and the spiciness hits harder. Some fleshy, leafy pith brings out a surprising bitterness.
The medium body holds together well. There's plenty of crispness and a good smoothness, though a bit of aspiring bites the back of the throat just into the finish.
