I brew my own beer, and have been a member of a brewmaster's club for a
while now. One of the gents I know there makes a beer with a large iron
nut in it (as in nuts and bolts - type nut, not a peanut or cashew or
something). He swears that it gives it a special "tang" and compares it
to cooking food in an iron skillet. I've never had the stuff and can't
speak for it, but I would think that a chunk of Nantan or perhaps Canyon
Diablo would do much the same...!!

"Canyon Diablo Stout"... hmm.... "Sikote Alin Pale Ale".... This might
cause trouble!
