Happy Sunday everyone! I’ve been busy doing my chores this morning and been quite productive. I have a few reviews to update and the first one is this beer from RJ Rockers. I picked this one up at Half Time Beverage and reviewed its little brother over a year ago (RJ Rockers Son Of A Peach). Let’s see how it went.
Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Ruthless to the pit, the king is a tasty tyrant to be feared and revered. Cloaked in gold with an air of fresh South Carolina peaches. It is an Imperial version of Son of a Peach with twice the amount of peaches. It’s easy to fall prey to his majesty’s palatable charms. Respect the power of the peach or it’s off with your head!”
Random: I had a peach martini last night that was really good. Val on the other hand, did not like it at all.
This beer poured with less than a finger of white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a dark amber color with heavy carbonation. The nose was very fruity, with lots of peach extract and jam and not much else. On the first sip, it was incredibly boozy with lots of cloyingly sweet peach with graham cracker. The booze warming on it was insanely hot and didn’t match with the taste. The body was thick with lots of carbonation. It had a long, sweet, peachy finish. This beer was way too heavy and dialed up the booze at the expense of the flavor. The other thing that I wasn’t a fan of was how expensive the beer was. It was $4.59 for a 12 ounce bottle which breaks down to $.38 an ounce. Given that and the flavor, I wouldn’t have this again.
