I don't know if this is supposed to be a play on Sky Cake or not. Like, maybe Sun King is going to have an ongoing "cake" series of beers? Because this is good, but it don't taste much like cake.

You read this, you're thinking something like a milk stout, right? Nope. More like a dark chocolate porter. But a rough porter, pleasantly tart and hoppy with just a wee little kiss of chocolate up front. No char, thankfully, just bitter porter roughness smoothed out slightly by dark chocolate.
