Weyerbacher = Creepy Label Art. Yes, that has been my conclusion about this brew for years. Creepy clown on the beer label staring at me with a sinister gleam in his eye? Pass. Goofy-looking monks with weirdly curved ears giving me a disturbing look while other menacing monks fiddle in the background? Nope. However, I finally decided to ignore the poor marketing and try...THE BEER. Here are my results... .
Appearance 4.0: Pours out a really beautiful dark amber that is semi-opaque. No head to speak of, and obviously CO2 conditioned.
Smell 3.00: VERY subdued bouquet. I do smell some nice hints of grain and a light hint of sweet wort.
Taste 3.00: Front is sweet, and that is about it. Few hints of anything else. Middle is also subdued, but has a slight hint of malt. Finish is light and boozy with more of the malt and a very nice caramel taste. The aftertaste is short and dry and focuses on the treacly sweetness. Also, there is a not-so-pleasant salty taste in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel 3.00: CO2ed carbonation is alright, but certainly does nothing for this beer.
Overall 3.00: This is an OK beer regarding its taste. However, that is probably not why people buy it. Regardless, this is a pretty good beer that is not recommended for sessioning, as the 11+% ABV will take you down the wobbly path to the village of Puke-Town, where you will be introduced to their leader, Mayor McToiletbowl.

A - cranberry, plum colored, almost a red/plum wine
S - alcohol, plums, figs, dates, honey
T - very sweet, can taste the alcohol but not overwhelming, fruits are darker ones - plums and figs, maybe some berries
M - sweet, sharp from the alcohol, medium bodied, barely any carbonation
O - Very sweet, the dark fruits are nice, taste of plum and the figs/dates are rather different, but its almost too sweet at times. A sipper.
