Poured from a can into a Southern Tier Pumking tulip glass.
A: Very dark brown. In the glass it looks black until held to the light. Aggressive pour results in a dense, 2 finger, khaki colored head. Slowly settles into a thin velvet layer that looks like brown felt on top of the brew. Clings to the glass really well. The appearance on this one is really nice.
S: Roasted Java. Vanilla. Chocolate and Belgian-like malts. A hint of smoke. Nothing is overpowering. The wafts are nice, but a bit faint.
T: Roast, but not nearly the java notes that I got from the nose. Smooth, but a little bland. Vanilla notes come through more than the chocolate or the malt. Faint smokiness.
M: Slightly over-carbonated, but I'm being overly picky. Smooth. Medium body. Very sessionable.
O: Not the best offering from Sun King, and definitely over-priced, but it's worth a try if one has never had it. It looks amazing, and tastes very smooth, but it's far from rocking my world.
