T-Some smoke, roasted malt, slight burnt notes, mild coffee, nuts and chocolate.
M-Tad light and lacking in carbonation.
O-Not a traditional Irish Dry Stout, had a brown and scotch ale twist to it.

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.
