3.05/5 rDev -10.6%
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Dark brown color with a one-finger head that quickly settles
S: Nutty, malty, some sweet caramel but I can also smell the metallic note that is somewhat of a detractor. Average overall
T: Matches the nose. Toasted walnuts, caramel, sweet malt up front but the finish turns bitter and metallic with an unpleasant finish
M: Medium-bodied initially, pleasant carbonation but thins out a bid towards the end with a bitter finish
O: It's rare that I dump a beer but I wrote the review drinking half of the glass & the rest went down the drain. I usually like Weyerbacher's beers quite a bit but this was a disappointment

2.95/5 rDev -13.5%
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear dark brown with a one finger white head that fades fairly quickly into a thin cap. No lacing at all.
Aroma is toasty and a bit nutty There is a sharp and fairly prominent metallic note that distracts quite a bit from the aromas that are supposed to be there. Maybe a tiny bit of grass underneath.
More metal immediately in the flavor. Once again this is a big drawback. Dark caramel and toast along with some light milk chocolate. A hint of grass from the hops underneath but it is quite faint. Bitterness is on the light to moderate side and the mouthfeel is quite watery.
Overall, a very lackluster beer. Way too much metal and watery. Underwhelming all around.
