It's like gorilla glue kinda. Has that pungent musty/skunk/BO/coffee kinda funk smell. The taste definitely on the skunk side. The smell lingers too. There's no hiding this stuff without a jar or something. It'll stick you playing video games if that's your thing. I found it a little harder to watch a movie from the kind racing. But goodness the mind racing is phenomenal. I had fun getting stoned and just sitting thinking about whatever. It's easy to get lost in what you're doing with Sleeping Monkey. I legit love this strain. Great for anxiety once you're used to it. It can cause anxiety with the mind racing easily if you let it.
