Flavors are toasted malt, dark chocolate, and light cherry--peaches come out as it warms. This one is a nice malty holiday treat. Not traditional for the style, but a good beer.

Clear red colored beer with a small light brown colored head.

Smells of candied ginger and malt. Smell some brown sugar and spruce tree. Lesser scent of blackberry and some eucalyptus tree.

Starts out malty and a little sweet with a taste of dried fruit. Weird flavor I can only describe as licorice.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a weird beer that I wouldn't want a six pack of.

Sweet with the perfect amount of dry bitterness I love. You can taste the pecans, not so much the peaches. I love almost all of the shiner offerings, but yet will tell hold nothing back just cause I'm from Texas. I feel like it could use just a little move uph but that's just me.but over all a decent beer for 10 a sixxer.

Perfect beer for a holiday meal. Though the peaches and pecans cone through, they are subtle and well balanced.
