Thanks to dogdoc for sending this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Russian River tulip glass.

A: Hazy dark gold with a thin white head that fades quickly. Average level of visible carbonation.

S: Not a big nose on this – some sweet peach cobbler, some husky wheat, and a fairly restrained sweetness.

T: The alcohol flavors hit first - more boozy than I expected. Fruity peaches that are fairly sweet, wheat and bready malts, and more alcohol heat with its accompanying sweetness. There's a light flavor of peach schnapps in the hang.

M: Fairly heavy body, low carbonation sensation. This doesn't come across as truly hot, but I feel like every percentage point of the ABV is noticeable.

O: Really not overly appealing here. I think it could have used a bit more peach flavor - though at least what is there is natural tasting. Overall, very malt-forward and alcoholic. But not offensive. Glad to have had a chance to try it.

poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

The beer pours a hazy amber/orange color with little to no head. What little head that there is dissipated quickly leaving behind no lacing at all.

The beer smells mainly of peach preserves, but there is a definite bready/malty undertone and is capped with a slight booziness

The flavor is sweet and sticky, comprised mainly of peach jam/preserves with a sweet malty backbone and a definite boozy finish. Not bad but not as good as Son of a Peach

Overall, this is not a bad beer, but it is not something that I would seek out again. This beers smaller version "Son of a Peach" is good, even if a little one dimensional, but this bigger version seems to have muddied the waters in their effort to create a more complex beer.

On tap at the brewery. (Formerly "impeachment"?).

Nice peach/amber color with a very good head. Aroma is predominantly peach jam, with a similar taste until the more bitter-malty-hoppy finish. Fairly well hidden 9% ABV.

12 ounce bottle - $2.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Bottled on: 05/29/2014

Appearance: Pours an amber-golden body strewn with some fine particulates and capped with nearly an inch of off-white foam.

Smell: Displays a bready, moderately sweet-scented aroma drenched in nostril prickling alcohol, giving an ill sign of things to come.

Taste: Bready, honey-glazed maltiness with a full-on fruity dose of peach puree, a couple drops of vanilla, and a big pop of low-grade schnapps which easily borders on a stinging, medicinal quality which mercifully drags out into the aftertaste and settles into a belly-warming tincture.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Minor stickiness present.

Overall: With a sneer, R.J. Rockers asked of Son of a Peach, "who's your daddy?" Apparently, it's this boozy deadbeat asshole.
