Reviewed from notes. Enjoyed out of the bottle.
A-Pours a nice golden body with a short and playful white head. Nice sized carbonation, big bubbles. Head retention minimal but leaves the sticky along the sides.
S-Lots of booze here (it is after all "imperial"). You get some sweetness present from the lactose and a faint bit of a peach.
T-A bit to "high gravity" for my liking as the alcohol absolutely dominates this beer. The peach is there but it is reminiscent of an over poured well drink....not quite as balanced as it could/should be. I absolutely love the foundation of the milk sugar and think if they brought this down a bit ABV wise it would be a home run.
M-Nicely carbed for the style and my only complaint remains the intimidatingly high booze blast that really overpowers everything.
O-I know, I know. I'm knocking it for being "too imperial" but feel like Short's has something here if they make it more of a session beer. Peaches aren't often found in many beers and the milk-sugar could really do wonders.
