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.

Appearance is a brownish copper with a half finger of head. The head dissipated rather quickly. The nose had the slight hint of sweetness. The malt flavors are not nearly as hearty as they should be considering the style. The lightness of the malt makes the alcohol tastes strong and intrusive. The only real highlight of this offering is the trace of dark fruits in the flavor.
Serving type: on-tap
