Old notes (from 2010). On tap at hotd. Colour...generally golden but VERY cloudy and chunky! More floaters than a high school toilet >~< Nose...quite fruity with obvious peach and some honey as well. Palate...a rather chunky experience! Various sizes of chunks are felt here. This is quite different. I’ve had thick chewy beers before but not literally chewy! There’s definitely loads of peach, but there’s also vanillin and some pie crust (though maybe the peach is just making me think "pie"). Not a horrid experience, but very, very different!

On tap at Hair of the Dog new location. Pours out thick like peach juice with peach pulp no head on this one. Aroma was nice tons of sweetness, peach, and vanilla. Taste was more of the sweet peach juice, some bourbon, and thick malts.

Draft at brewery. Strong nose of peach and vanilla. Moderate tangy flavors. Some floaters in the glass (peach floaters). Lingering fuzzy finish with slight alcohol warming. Sticky sweet finish. Great stuff.

A delicious unique beer. Haven’t tasted anything quite like this before. Pours a nice dark amber, no head though. Smells great like bourbon and peaches. Taste starts with some bourbon, and then the peach comes in. The two work perfectly together, coming in waves and blending nicely. Also some marzipan and coconut in the finish. Ir tastes very much like a white port. Damn good! Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another gorgeous beer from Hair of the Dog. Fuzzy brown, thin head. Peach and malt aroma. Very full bodied with oak, malt, peach notes. Warming malt finish. No alcohol burn

Bule (577) - California, USA - JUL 11, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy brown color without a head. Starts with intense bourbon flavors that burn off to reveal the peach. Overall a little harsh.

MrFecesious (800) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2013
On tap at brewery. Opaque burnt apricot/dark amber, with no cap. Aroma of vinegar and tart peach, wood, bourbon. Taste is peach, wood, bourbon and more bourbon, candied sugar. Coasts the mouth with sweet sweet candy.

On draught at Hair of the Dog. Dark, golden amber color. Oaky, sweet caramel, and fruity aroma. Taste of bourbon, peach, plum, and wood. Really warming feel and sweet syrup aftertaste.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2012
On tap at the brewpub in Portland, OR. Pours a cloudy, amber-orange-gold colored body with a thin, creamy and frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is bigger bourbon up front with a sweeter caramel and vanilla. A light peach comes out more as this warms with a bit of a bready rye spice, wood, and butterscotch. Flavor is similar. Bigger bourbon and sweet caramels with a good amount of vanilla. A bit more peach on the flavor, but still in the background. Touches of bready rye spice, some wood, and a bit of a nutty butterscotch. Finishes a bit hot with lots of bourbon, vanilla, and sweet caramels. Lengthy aftertaste following a full body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, I loved the regular Fred, but the bourbon is a bit much on this version. It’s still enjoyable with a light peach note, but not my favorite. Despite that, not bad and glad to have tried.
