Cape, I'm proud of you for following this effort through to the end. I was one of the doubters that thought this was going to be a few early posts, with no results. I'm glad that I was able to follow it in real time. Great effort thanks.
Soy sauce flavor? After the zillions of yeast cells that passed through this you think something other than autolysis?

Cape, I also want let you know that even though this beer took 2 years, cost hundreds of dollars and many hours of time and in the end it sucked, I am also proud of you. Have you ever tried brewing just an IPA though? I heard that's a pretty good kind of beer.

At least you have something to sprinkle on your Chinese food.

Sounds like autolysis (where you aging on the yeast cake?) as I'm sure that yeast was already hella stressed.

I have a bottle of tactical nuclear penguin and it has hints of soy sauce as well. Only on the nose though.
