look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: dark brown, minimal tan head, no lacing

S: nose is rather vegetal which is pretty gross for the style, some fruit skin is present and a touch of metallic character

T: taste has earthy character with a considerable amount of fruit which provides a bit of tang and spice, better than the nose, very unique

Mf: light body, high carbonation

O: overall, the word I would use to describe this is weird. Lots of sweetness along with some veggie quality... Not delicious

Very dark brown in color but still a little translucent. Forms a thin light tan head, though it's not much more than a surface coating. Very light lacing.
Aroma is borderline offensive: metallic and vegetal. Thankfully the flavor is much better with notes of dark malts, dark fruit, a slight bit of coffee, and something approaching sourness. Medium bodied with a slightly slick feeling to it. Mild bitterness. Overall this beer is off and something just isnt right with it.
