3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at CL Rosso release. Pours dark brown with a brown head. Aroma is a bit funky with some fruit and roasted malt. Dry and a bit tart with more malt and fruit, quite an interesting combination.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle... Poured pitch black with little head. Really great beer here and a positive experiment for Odell Brewing. A thicker body of the porter with the tangy, fruity peach tones. I really like how the wild yeast tone added some funk (but no sourness keep in mind). The finish would start to dry out accentuating the peach fruit flavors. Glad I have an extra bottle in the cellar, canít wait to see how this turns out even more down the road.

Dark brown with rugy highlights. Tart berry aroma with underlying peach tones. Fresh, tart, and fruity. Not as peachy as I was expecting. A bit vineous...like a young red wine. Much like a sour ale. Medium body, again not what I was expecting. Good.

Thanks to Ogglethorpe for sharing! Cheers Brian! Dark pour with a thick beige head and drippy lace. Aroma is lightly roasty, with subtle hints of creamy peaches. Interesting porter with a flare of sour peaches.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at the Santa Cruz tasting in March. Pours dark brown with a decent cap of tan suds. Aroma bursts with canned peach syrup followed by lesser notes of roasted malt, dark bread, and alcohol. Flavor really disappoints in terms of peachiness. I donít get hardly any fruitiness. Thereís a touch of acidity that could be fruit-related but it could also just be the roasted malt. Pretty basic porter flavor otherwise.

Lotsa peach on the nose. Dark and big fizzy tan head. Peachness grows as it warms. Pulls the moisture from your mouth. Something doesnít quite seem to mesh.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by Travlr. Almost black with a slightly tan head. Light peach, roasty and fruity, and a hint of ash in the aroma. Lots of sourness in the flavor coupled with deeply roasted malt, and just comes out all sorts of wrong ot me. Very acidic. Thinner body with vibranr carbonation.

Malty porter taste, with slight peace notes. It is good, but the person I was talking to at the liquor store made it sound like the holy grail of beers so I was a little disappointed. Nevertheless, quality beer.
