With a nutty wine like aroma and an amber red color with a perfect white and frothy head this Strong English Ale has so many unique attributes that you canít even define it. The taste is smooth to the tongue like a dry wine and yet has an abrupt palate that leaves you craving for more. It is simple but yet complementary to most any meal that you could imagine. Its an ale that the English should be proud of and make more of!

Cask in the Dacre Arms, Bransburton. Mahogany with a tan head. Iíve always enjoyed a pint of Old Peculier and it certainly didnít disappoint this time around. Richg with notes of fruit cake, caramel, roast malts, coffee and toffee. Lovely and drinkable.

jjsint (498) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Cask @ George Hotel, Hull. Very dark brown, lively with massive head. Liquorice and dark fruit dominate the aroma. A sweet beer, only mildly tempered in the taste with a bitter edge in the finish and aftertaste. A great beer with many imitators but few challengers.

StueyD (1066) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
A dark dark brown coloured beer with reddish tints and a weak off white head. A roasted malt aroma, meaty and nutty, vinous with lots of dark fruit. Dry mouthfeel. A dry roasted malt taste, Marmite meatiness and nutty, with a vinous dark fruit flavour that also brings forward a hint of liquorice. Towards the end is a grassy, hop flavour that refreshes the heavy malt domination.

Cask at The Flying Horse, Gatwick. Pours dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel wood and red berries. Smooth and flat mouthfeel. Taste is light sweet dark red berries, lingering berries, ok, but flat as a pancake.
