COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Abv reduced from 5.7 to 5.6 in 2010.
Its initial sweetness is, apparently, "of roasted and vinous notes with a subtle bitter aftertaste". Strong fruitiness, often with "banana notes" standing out, is derived from Old Peculier’s fermentation process.

My girl got me this one on a whim... and I love her for it. Great, complex beer. Quite dark and a charming flavor to it.

Chestnut brown with rich head. Fruity aroma. Malty, slight toffee aroma, complex. Rather low bitterness.

dark dark ruby red. Only shows some red when put under light, stunning. strong butter scotch aroma. Sweet caramel, some toffee, slightly buttery with fruit noses. Creamy and exceptionaly easy to drink. Awsome!

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2003 Dark, medium bodied ale. Fuggles hop lends wonderful aroma and flavour, clean bitterness lingers. A very nice beer bursting with flavour.

A nice dark beer with a wierd aftertaste that I can’t quite place. Regardless, I like the sweet and grainy flavors to this one. A good beer for a little change.

Had it from the bottle. Hints of granola, oatmeal, brown sugar, alcohol, malt. Small, light-brown head that smelled like Twizzlers. Soft carbonation, light body. Sweet start and finish with hints of wort. Enjoyable.

a walnut colored beer, transluscent, a thin pate of foam the color of coffee ice cream. a robust and convivial smell greets you with affection--the aromatic equivalent of a bear hug, a beautiful blend of rye and caramel and anise, new boot leather, hazelnut and raisin. i have no doubt whatsoever that my pulse increased just smelling it. and then a brisk tingly texture, sweet whiskey flavor, enough hops to bend it back to dryness in a grand bitter conclusion. damn fine ale friends.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2002
Complex aroma but didn’t sense any fruit or banana, maybe candy or caramel, others have mentioned toffee. Pleasant balanced sweet/bitter flavour, soft palate and clean finish.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2004 Clear dark amber coloured beer with a small head. Slightly sweet toffee aroma. Sweet start but the hops soon take over. The finish is still not very bitter, more dry with a toffee taste.

complex brew, this beer would appeal to beer hobbyists. strong aroma, unique color, distinct flavor.
