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 Peculierís fermentation process.

Vaiz (3298) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle at home. Dark brown pour, foamy off-white head. Aroma of licorice, spicy malts and a bit yeasty. Flavor is spicy bitter malts, quite British and a bit sticky sugars. Decent balance, but a bit boring.

chicagobears (412) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Pours a dark ruby color into snifter. Dark plum, raisins, and roastiness in the nose. Complex flavor with dark fruits, tart apple, and a sharp bitterness that fades into a sweetness. Lingering roastiness. Wonderful beer.

Metalhead (627) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Amber Ruby pour with minimal head. Aroma was mild malt and subtle vinous fruitiness. Flavor was exactly how it smelled. Body a little thin. Should have had more ABV punch to make this note worthy. At $14 a six not worth it. See if you can score a single bottle.

A nice dark ale. Pours really black with tan head. Recently had Old Tom and have to admit, Old Pec isnít as good. Still a quality ale. Would love to try it on tap one day.
