Cloudy peach, minimal head with good lacing.
A complex smell - alcohol, wood, pear, and pineapple.
Started to drink this too cold, and it had a fairly boozy finish. As it warms, the alcohol is slightly less present, but still packs a punch. Tastes of vanilla with notes of wood and light fruit. Also a buttery caramel taste to things. This is all right, but not earth shattering for me. Guess I'm in the minority.
Mouthfeel smooth and dense, yet slippery.
Not worth the high price for me personally - for $15, I was expecting to be blown away.
