3.6/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
16 ounce can. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is nice but very light, it smells like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate and coffee. The brew tastes like roasted malt, coffee, burnt/charred malt, and some dark chocolate and earthiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit creamy and has medium/high carbonation. I thought this was a good tasting brew, although the weak aroma didn't exactly impress me. It's worth trying. $3.99 for a single can.

Can poured into Chimay chalice.
A: Stoutly brown. Impossible to see through. Tan head. Lacing throughout as the head dissipates into a velvet sheen. Looks great!
S: Coffee. Burnt bologna. (Yeah. I said it. I keep wondering where the mustard is. May have just been a tad off on this batch.) Vanilla and roast toffee can be found as well.
T: Toasted and roasted. Heavy malt and smoke flavors. Hops absent. Sweet. Smoke takes some of sweetness away, but it sweeps back in.
M: Carbonation helps to move flavor. Lots of it. Medium bodied.
O: Disappointed. Had many friends tell me I had to bring this back from my trip back home to Indy. Not commensurate with what I have come to enjoy about Sun King. Tasty brew to some, but for me this ends with an "ehhhh... if you aren't going to drink it..." sort of feel. I think the beer is missing something... just cannot put my finger on it. I think whatever this recipe is should be experimented with. Some interesting ingredients like white peppercorns (or if this was the base for a chili pepper beer) would be really exciting.
