On tap at Hanover Tap, Edinburgh on 31-may-2017 (part of a taster set). Reddish brown in colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, fruit and pine. Full body and soft carbonation. Taste of caramel malt, dark soft fruit. Reminded me of a toffee apple. Good for those with a sweet tooth! Scopey (14999) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2016
Cask at Tam O Shanter. It pours clear rich brown with a medium off-white head. The aroma is soft, sweet, brown bread, malt loaf, dried fruits and toffee. The taste is smooth, bitter - sweet, toffee, biscuit, alcohol, toasted nuts, fruit cake, malt, leather and earth with a dry finish. Medium + body, fine carbonation and oily mouth - feel. Rich and moreish. Nice one. nihtila (3670) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 11, 2015

Pint at the Auld Brig, Irvine,
Very dark with small, thin off white head.
Tastes of all things dark, cherries and plums soaked in alcohol. Dark boiled fruit sweets, Christmas cake. Treacle toffee. Quite strong alcohol taste. Very nice in moderation. Erzengel (8920) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2014
Very smooth and intense. Slightly sourish, easy to drink and slightly sweetish. Fresh, very fruity (plums, cherries), malty. Great. The aftertaste is smooth, intense fruity, slightly bitter. Great! JohnS1704 (12) - SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Last had this Tennents Byres Road over a year ago. Always had a rather unpleasant sour aftertaste much as Old Peculiar has now. This one in Henglers Circus much smoother. Malt still dominates with now a pleasing spice aftertaste. Good stuff especially for under £2.00 (CAMRA voucher). Dangerously quaffable. jfb (6360) - GERMANY - MAY 25, 2014
(draught) pours a hazy amber-ruby colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of straw, apricots and vanilla, with a hint of coconut and pale malts. flavour is mostly caramel and pale malts, with notes of green apple, some popcorn and yeast. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

On cask at Alexander Graham Bell.
Appearance - dark honey heading into red. Nice head.
Nose - not a lot. Some gentle malt. Then toffee finally breaks through.
Taste - quite luscious toffee. Then slight malt astringency.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly fresh finish considering the style.
Overall - good but not as good as expected.
