COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was inspired by David Rogersí winning entry in the 2011 Big Batch Brew Bash homebrew competition. The color is orangy amber with a light, creamy head. The nose has rich malt notes and a little alcohol that combines with a spicy hop note to create a complex bouquet. The taste has a spicy, malty beginning that smoothes out into a creamy middle and a warming finish. While this beer is enjoyable now, it is designed to be aged and will shine after a year or more in the bottle. This will allow sherry flavors to develop as the alcohol oxidizes. It is also important to allow this beer to warm up so that all of the flavors emerge and round out the high alcohol level.

Bottle from trade with crajun. Pours a cloudy amber color, with low head and a light sweet malt aroma. Flavor is sweet but not over done, and has strong hints of peaches and maybe a little citrus. I donít really find any hop bitterness in this, which is just fine. Mouthfeel is nice, not thin at all. I almost thought this was a fruit beer since I really didnít know what style is was brewed as. In any case, this is a nice one, a bit of a surprise, and it stands out from the crowd for sure.
