Pours clear dark brown, lots of tan head. Aroma is musty, winey. Medium body. Flavors of rasins, overripe banana, port. I can see why people would like this. It’s not for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Originally rated on 7/2/08. Well whoever named this one certainly hit the nail on the head. It poured a dark amber hued body with a thin tan head, fair amount of lacing left. The flavor is a combo of oak, molasses, toasted nuts, and fruit, it is sweet going down but there is a touch of bitterness. A very peculiar beer indeed.

From a bottle with a newly-designed label- it is now called 'Old Peculier - The Legend'. Dark brown with a tan head. Full-flavoured with a taste of toffee and dried fruit. Pleasant bitter finish. A classic beer with a well-balanced and satisfying taste.
