12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

A- very clear dark ruby body with a cream colored head.

N - wow really sweet. But not malt sweetness... it's peachy and pecany. Maybe a bit yeasty.

T - peaches and pecans dominate. The standard dunkel notes are there but rather diluted. Maybe. Some winter spices?

M - slick. There's decent carbonation and it's fine.

O - different and not bad but I doubt I would buy a sixer or a pint. Cheers.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a medium reddish brown color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains peaches, spices, wheat, caramelized malts and a faint touch of hops, but it’s mostly the peaches.

T: The taste likewise starts out sweet burst of peach flavor that is quickly followed by flavors of caramel, nuts and spices. Then some breadiness comes in from wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is very mild but brings a little bit of balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Flavorful, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, not the best representation of style, if you’re into the peach flavor it’s a decent beer, otherwise it’s just mediocre at best.
