3.9/5 rDev +1.3%
Bottled 8/14/13. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint.
Appearance: A slightly hazed orange/peach color. Two and a half fingers of a rich, creamy off-white head. Lacing is pretty good at the start, but then disappears. Not too shabby.
Smell: Faint. It's not as face walloping as I was expecting. Sweet peaches and cream, with maybe a slight spice character.
Taste/feel: Silky as all hell. That's the first thing I notice. Unbelievable smooth drinking beer... like peach fuzz on your tongue. But... in liquid form. And... not unpleasant. Peach is obviously there, with a creamy milk sweetness. Coats the tongue nicely. Aftertaste is peach with a slight spice, and a very, VERY slight alcohol flavor and warmth. It's hard to believe this is about 9%. I could sip on this all day if it weren't so sweet. Truthfully, probably the sweetest beer I've ever had. I'm not shocked at all by that fact, as it's what I figured. A 12oz bottle is almost too much for me to handle due to its sweetness, but this beer does what it wants to do, and does it well. As silky as the mouthfeel is, and as sweet as the beer is, I don't ever find that it becomes cloying in a syrupy way -- it just has a huge amount of sweetness.
An awesome dessert beer, but it's a specialty beer and a limited release for a reason, I think. I'm glad I didn't buy a six-pack, but instead got two singles. A very tasty beer, but not one I could have often. Get your hands on this, especially if you have a sweet tooth -- I tend to not generally care much for sweets.
UPDATE 9/22/13: Having just aged this beer a month, the sweetness has toned down quite a lot, making this an easier-to-drink beer. It's still very sweet, but it's mellowed out very nicely. Changing my taste rating from 3.75 to a 4.
