The beer pours dark brown and amber in color. There is a short head of beige foam. The aroma is malty, caramel and nutty. The taste also has toasted, roasted, nutty, caramelly malt, along with some dark fruit notes, but an incongruous tart, metallic, band-aid note steps in and ruins the beer. Not much to say after the flavor wrecker steps in. This must be infected, too bad, because the underlying beer had great malty potential.
