Bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. Pours black with a khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. I definitely get the peach on the nose. It;s a little more subtle on the tongue though there;s a lot of roasted malt there. finishes clean. It’s an interesting curiosity more than anything else.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours thick unclear dark amber black with a huge lacey creamy frothy beige head - awesome! Aroma brings big roasted malt notes, a bit of coffee, and then peach pit with some sublte spices. Spices pick up huge on the palate, almost clove like, and then the peach transitions in, and pleasantly takes over all on top of the roasted malt undertones. This is delicious!

Tap at the Arvada Tavern. Dark black pour, decent tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and hints of tropical fruit / peaches. Taste is nice chocolate and coffee balance with faint fruity hints. Extremely smooth and the peaches provide a good balance to the bitterness. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is dark brown to black.
Aroma is moderately malty (cocoa, roasted grain), with notes of spruce/juniper needles, peppermint, black peppercorns.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
This one relies heavily on some evergreen-mint-like spice effects but it’s certainly pleasant and doesn’t clobber the choco-roast malt. The fruity tartness works fine with the bitterness, and there’s enough sweetness left to keep it pretty drinkable. The velvety mouthfeel helps too. All in all a nice beer...a bit novelty-ish and Christmas-seasonal-like, but still nice.

Dark black pour under a rocky beige head. Lovely nose of chocolate and cinnamon and sweet peaches. Swell flavor with sweet peaches and chocolaty cake tones with a little bit of spice, but very little bitterness. Quite sweet and chocolaty with a lovely peachy fruity tone. Awesome.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
10 oz at the brewery. Peach stout. . .something I would not order unless names like The Bruery and Epic were associated with it. Pours very dark with a tall head. The aroma is nicely fruity and spiced, just enough to let me know that actual fruit was involved. There are notes of soy sauce, dark fruits, roasted grains and juicy hints at peaches and ripe berries. The palate is medium. The peach notes find a way to be noticed without ever coming into the forefront. The roasty malts are the focus while all the fruit and spices hang around to add a twist to the stout and not stomp all over my palate. The adjuncts were used at a perfect level and the stout itself is quite drinkable. Not too shabby.
