Still a pretty unique tasting beer, although in a bottle, it seems to be quite highly carbonated.

Once upon a time this was the stuff of legend. Especially on cask. Even Scottish Courage couldn’t totally fuck it up when they took control. And then years ago when it returned to family hands it was if it was intervention from the gods and Theakston returned to family hands. Then something happened. Something bad. Cask Old Peculier became very dark, very angular,austere and not so good.
And here we have a bottle in 2015 which piurs a big easy tan head despite not lasting. The nose is not envouraging though with dominant elements of vegetal, confectionary and sulphur. Taste is just off and twidted with a biting carbonation

*Old rating. Best before 31.07.11. 5.6% Thick and dark malted beer. Hints of dark dried fruit, still not too hard to drink. Nice hopped to prevent too much stickiness, fruit, malt with a nice bitter Ale finish.

Pours a chocolate brown with small beige head that diminishes quickly. Cut grass, dried fruit aromas. Initial sweetness is rounded out nicely with a malty hit in the back - dried fig, caramel and malty-sweet.
