A thick sticky tan head above an opaque black body, Aroma is coffee, nuts, caramel, and tea. Taste is sweet, tea, licorice, taffy, and pepper. Texture is smooth, with a nice rounded mouthfeel. A great session, even if not by definition. Very enjoyable, and extremely affordable, at $12 a case at Canal’s Lawrenceville, NJ.

From a bottle purchased at Super Saver, Pennington, NJ. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Very nice.
Mouthfeel is smooth, sweet, with a short finish. Some bitterness lingers. Okay palate.
Visuals are a long lasting off white, tan head with a deep black body. Beautiful.
Tastes delicious, very much like iced coffee. Nice caramel flavors lingers on. Great.
Not as hoppy as I prefer, but not bad by any stretch. Great job, as usual, DFH.
