Kalona Sheer Madness

This is a 5.6% American Dark Wheat Ale. I'll admit, I don't know what that style is supposed to be. It is from the Kalona Brewing Company of Kalona, Iowa. On the can: "Heavenly Beers Brewed by Mere Mortals."

The beer pours black in appearance, the deepest, darkest, richest ruby when held to the light. There is nearly an inch of tan to light brown foam. The aroma is dark roasted malt, char, light coffee, a mineral tang, and a strange note somewhere between overly toasted rye and mild vomit. Hmmmm. Let’s proceed. Well, the taste follows the aromas, there is some nice dark roasted malt under there, but for me it is predominantly that strange note. The mouthfeel is nicely smooth and creamy. Who’s tried this? Did it work for you? It just does not work for me.
