Growler, pours clear golden brown with off white bubbly head. Nose is dominated with inviting coffee over the top of caramel malt. Flavor is smooth and sweet, caramel is evident with a wonderful coffee bean component. One of their better current offerings. I like it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler. Pours dark amber with brown highlights. A thin white head lightly laces the glass. The aroma consists of coffee, mocha, and a hint of hops. Coffee and chocolate flavors dominate. Finishes with a sweet caramel aftertaste. I expected a fuller body, but this beer has a light watery body with mild carbonation. However, this is still a solid quality brew with a wonderful coffee aroma and flavor.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2009 Picked up a growler in the tap room. Pours a roasted nut brown with some nice lasting dirty white head. Lots of depth in the nose. I get a soft blend of medium roast coffee along with plenty of toffee richness. The flavor has some pleasant coffee character and it adds a bit of bitterness to be beer as well. Still quite malty like Wee Mac with a very dry finish. Easily one of my favorite Sun King brews so far.
