look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a copper brown color. There is little carbonation that barely creates a thin white head before it immediately disappears.
Smell has a lot going on with it. It is predominated by a very strong nut smell. There is also a bit of a chocolate and other malt as well.
Taste is dominated by nut as well. It is a good nut taste with a bit of chocolate as well. The two tastes combine to taste a little like a Snickers bar.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin for my liking, but it has a nice feel going down.
Drinkability is nice. This beer has a nice bit of taste to it with a thin feel, easy to go down. An interesting beer, not much like anything else I have ever had. Definitely worth a drink...

I mistakenly bought a 12-pack of this beer before it was rightfully retired. The taste was horrendous, with an upfront unnatural nuttiness to it. The mouthfeel was of a metallic nature, and it was overly carbonated. Everything about this beer screams artificial.

I could not sell the remaining 10 beers for $5, after letting my four roommates try this. This is one of the only drain-pour worthy beers I've encountered, and will retire in the hall of fame of terrible beers.
