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.

The imperial version of Son of a Peach recently released by RJ Rockers. More alcohol and more peaches!

Served from tap into an RJ Rockers shaker by Mark himself. Poured a massively hazy yellow-orange with a minimal off-white head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, peach, fruit, subtle alcohol, and spices. The flavor was of sweet malt, peach, wheat, bread, subtle alcohol, and coriander. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. I really like how they did this one compared to the prototype they had awhile back. The addition of coriander really added a nice touch to this one by helping to cut some of the sweetness from the peahces. When I said 'massively hazy' I mean no light can pentrate through the center of this thing. Crazy for a beer this light in color. Really nice to see Rockers branching out and trying new things. Really hope they continue to do so in the future as well. Tick.

- Brewed with coriander and fermented with peaches and natural flavors.

A: Dark peach orange tones are a perfect match with a dirty seashell white head that was thin, coarse and short lasting. Moderate carbonation presence with a thin weak, broken band of lace that barely caught the eye.

S: Nose was whole sweet, fuzzy peaches with a touch of dry alcohol. Moderate in strength, linear in complexity.

T: Peach malt, sweet with some aspect of the natural peaches coming through at first. Peach alcohol, peach schnapps? warmth on the finish. Fairly linear again in delivery.

M: Crisp around the tongues edges, sticky, sweet residual malt with a syrup like consistency.

O: Overall while not a bad beer, it is certainly not one that is gonna stand out, more of a 3.25 effort. Alright but there are much better peach based beers out there (selins grove, bullfrog) that are much more worthy of spending time on. This one was middle of the road, safe. Some natural peachiness, but also some of the added natural flavors that tasted a bit unnatural (extract additions). The brewery's name brings images of a tobacco giant (RJ Reynolds) merging with a planet hollywood type eatery trying to brew beer. Call me when you do a tomacco style.

Not usually a fan of "imperial" anything, as they tend to be too sticky.

This is very good.

Pours amber and semi-cloudy.

Nose is peach and vanilla.

Taste is reminiscent of peach marmalade and southern comfort/bourbon. Boozy but zero burn.

Overall, a very nice beer that would go well with a dessert or rich cheese. Not a thirst quencher, but most definitely an after dinner sipper.

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.
