Bottle shared at Exira Beer Summit 2012. Thanks to adnielsen for sharing. Pours a dark brown with off white head. Metallic, toffee, slight nutty, malty aroma. Dark malt, sweet, toffee, dark fruits flavors. I’m a big fan of Funkwerks, but I’m not too impressed with this one. A little metallic aromas and flavors.
On tap @ Mayor of Old Town. Mahogany pour with a khaki head. A bit metallic on the nose. Some caramel, chocolate, and dark fruit. Booze, roast, and some chocolate. Flavor is sweet caramel, dark fruit, and cola. Roast, chocolate, and alcohol. Fairly metallic. cubs (10639) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2012 Tap @ The Mayor of Old Town Foco. Pours a hazy dark reddish brown appearance with a tan head. Toffee, coffee, caramel, grassy, zippy coffee creamer aroma. Metallic, tangy, a touch fruity toffee, mild chocolate aroma. Really a strong metallic note that turned me off. (3.1)
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit III. The metallic note wasn’t overly obnoxious this time but the beer is a bit cloying. (3.2)
