Served from the bottle into a wheat beer glass. The first of my 2014 Twelve Beers of Christmas.

A- Poured a very dark and clear reddish brown color with visible carbonation, off-white soapy head dissipated quickly and left no lace.

S- Lots of sweet and syrupy peach notes, some toasted malts, and nutty notes.

T- Dominant notes of very sweet and artificial peach, almost like a peach syrup. There are also some sweet bread, light pecan notes, and light spices.

M-Medium body, low carbonation, and slightly watery finish.

O- The descriptions of this beer sounded very intriguing, but the peach flavor is a bit cloying and very artificial tasting. The pecan flavor was very subtle and pleasant. It is certainly a one-of-a-kind beer for the season that lacks the usual holiday spices, but still manages to evoke the season.
