I was not a fan of the aroma profile on this at first, but I'm glad I stuck with it. Lots of dark malt on the nose, with some odd notes of overripe peach that seemed incongruous. These elements complemented each other a little better on the palate. This beer was actually quite drinkable, with a lingering bittersweet finish. Not one I'll be seeking out again, but not bad.

A: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Body is clear, dark coppery-amber with a small khaki-colored head. Lots of visible carbonation.

S: Pureed peaches and strawberries over a sweet malt foundation.

T: Meh. Nutty malt foundation is followed by overripe peaches. Finishes clean, though with a slight aftertaste of fruity sweetness.

M: Light in heft, active, fizzy carbonation.

O: Not impressed. Glad I only bought the single bottle. Merry Christmas to all and to all a [better beer than this one] . . . Good night!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
L - Poured a deep amber with a light tan head.
S - Smells of peaches.
T - Taste matches the smell, very peachy, with a little nuttiness. It has a nice maltiness on the finish.
F - Nicely carbonated.
O - I've been trying different holiday beers lately, and this one was different in a good way. Very nice drinking beer.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint glass.

L: Pours a deep russet mahogany color with very little head.

S: Peach and other orchard fruits. Faint nutty aroma, too. Very pleasant on the nose.

T: Overwhelming grapefruit; so much grapefruit, in fact, that I didn't detect much else. I expected more peach, since it is so dominant on the nose. A bit yeasty in the aftertaste.

F: Somewhat crisp and dry. Feels thin and somewhat unsubstantial on the tongue.

O: A very solid holiday brew.

Pours a clear, dark, deep mahogany colour. Smells like sweet peach cobbler, with notes of figs, cranberry, and malts. Tastes like it smells, sweet, rich malts, figs, sticky fruits, and syrupy peaches.
